The End of Term, and an Informal Concert

Next week, December 10th, will be the last session of term and we’ll mark it with an informal concert and session at the Trade Union Club.  Please invite your friends and family – we’ll meet as usual at 7:15 for a quick rehearsal, and then play some tunes for our audience at 8.  After that we’ll retire downstairs for a session.  Rather than selling tickets, I suggest we take a collection at the end which will then go to a local charity for the homeless.  There may even be a raffle!  Hurrah!
