Welcome to the Café René, France, 1940-something.....

Social event in the SLTC Members' Club Bar.

Saturday 12th September 2009


Visitors were welcomed to the Café René in the village of Norbois Ouest, a sleepy place in the heart of the French countryside. Gathered together to commemorate poor René (God Rest 'Is Soul...), the villagers were shocked and stunned to witness the murder of the General, leader of the occupying forces..

But who dunnit?

Inspecteur Clueless was the man to help us find out!


  • Zee Priest - Mr Punter
  • Zee Nurse - Ms Punter

Written by Samantha Golton and the cast

Thanks to:

  • Costumes - the cast, Val and Jess Osorio and James Hough. Big thanks from latter to Julian of Epic Militaria, who went the extra mile to get German costume bits to us in time. Julian is very "peed" off he can't get to SLT shows and events...because he lives in Aberystwyth.
  • Steve Imrie and Jenny McLaughlin for a fine French Feast.
  • James Hough and Stuart Grimwood for the German buffet; with of course special mention for the Croydon French Farmers' Market snails (lovingly prepared by Stuart Grimwood).
  • The Punters... for participation and wonderful detective skills!
