This year we had arranged to go to Tyringham Arms for our works Christmas meal.
An old colleague of ours had taken over the running of the Arms last year, so it seemed like a good idea to keep it all in the family so to speak.
(Yes I know Paul looks miserable, it’s because he’d seen the camera come out of my bag for the umpteenth time in the last week!)
The meal was a carvery and dessert, and the entertainment a cabaret type singing type karaoke type comedian chap.
We all decided that despite not liking the singing comedian idea we would enjoy ourselves regardless…. We needn’t have worried! He was superb, and dragged us all in as an audience. Look at Alison lapping up the serenade!
We all got given some school yard type musical instruments, and told to join in at the time we thought appropriate. Well, that was it then, we never stopped all night, and even took the instruments up to dance with!
Most of the men in the room got given hats, wigs and some even got grass hula skirts, and guess what! They all wore them!
This cabaret chap must have been using magic or something, as we all enjoyed ourselves so much, it did not matter how silly we looked!
A superb evening was had by all, and we cannot recommend it highly enough.
In the words of the immortal Mrs Hart: Such Fun! (It only work in her voice though I think!)
