A Celebration of Christmas (1982)
Directed by the participants
From SCENE December 1982:-
"You are heartily invited to join us in a clebration of the season of Christmas in the Prompt Corner. We will entertain you while you sit with your friends around intimate tables sipping mulled wine and nibbling mince pies.
We will conjure for you pictures of Christmas past and present, near and far, strange and familiar.
Come in good voice. There will be songs to sing.
Seating will be reduced so tickets will be hard to obtain. Don't miss your chance - you're in for a great evening.
Leading the jollifications will be Ann & Mike Mattey, Lynn Jenner, Bruce Murray and Alan Buckman, with two guest stars."
Tickets were £1.50 which included refreshments, seating was at decorated tables.
- Featuring - Ann Mattey & Mike Mattey
- With their friends - Lynn Jenner, Alan Buckman, Bruce Murray, Sue Goodes & Charlie Cheetham
