Royal Ballet School - POSTPONED

Tue, 28/04/2020 (All day)

The Ballet Association has formally announced that the visit to the Royal Ballet Upper School on 28 April has been postponed to a later date, to be arranged. John has contacted everyone who booked a place.

For those with a somewhat serious interest in ballet, we shall again spend a day visiting the Royal Ballet Upper School in Covent Garden.   
We are hoping there will be additional spaces for other LALG members.  So, even if you do not usually attend meetings of the Opera and Ballet Group, please do get in touch and we will send you details as they become available

Ukulele groups’ 1st Birthday Party

It's been a whole year since we all met up to try our hands at the ukulele. Who would have thought that it would be so successful. Most members have been there from the start, but new members are always welcome.

Opera and Ballet

This Group attracts good attendances, the evenings being appreciated by all who attend. To keep things special we usually have six or seven weeks between meetings. We rarely watch a whole opera or ballet from beginning to end; usually we watch ‘the best bits’, or those parts or scenes which provide a means of more fully appreciating and understanding the opera or ballet. Sometimes we focus on a particular great performer, Maria Callas for example. Our programmes are always reasonably ‘light’, certainly not ‘heavy’, with the emphasis on enjoying the evening, so if you enjoy opera or ballet, if only a bit, do come along.

Piano Tuning

I am pleased to report the piano has recently had its yearly tuning thanks to our member Richard Gatward.

Charity Donation

In line with the wishes of our members we donated £100.00 from our funds to Macmillan Cancer relief in July 2010.

Summer Celebration

Although we had planned to hold our "Summer Celebration" in Jenny Barwick's garden, the weather did not co-operate and we had to make a hasty retreat into the house. This did not 'dampen our spirits', however, and a good time was had by all. Thank you Jenny.
