7th August 1999

This was the first day for the Memorabilia Fair held in the Paxton Theatre.  We had a good look around and purchased a hard back version of the Sorcerer for 3! a good deal. (Sorry I forgot the camera!)

In the evening it was time for Iolanthe by the professionals.  This was very good and we both enjoyed it. The singing of some of the "youngsters" in this group is excellent.

The cabaret in the club was presented by the chorus of the professional group - they were excellent and most entertaining.

The first problem was with the piano - here we see Andrew removing various parts to "fix" the sustain pedal.

This young man treated us to a tremendous tenor aria

Helen was her usual self - full of confidence and talent!  What a magnificent voice she has.
