From time to time the Social Committee organise special events evenings - this was their second with the Cockney Pride group from London.
The first was in June 2005 - does'nt the time fly!

Many of the guests dressed up in the Cockney tradition.

The evening started with Chairman Alan Buck welcoming everyone and saying that it was nice to have Cockney Pride back - Fish & Chips would be served later.

The Cockney Pride appeared on stage dressed as Pearly Kings & Queens but supporting musical instruments.   We had as before John on Guitar & vocals; Mario on Keyboard and Flute, Clarinet & Saxaphone.   Last time we had Natalie but this time we had Sue as the Vocalist.

They started with a rousing selection of songs including all the standard Cockney songs about London.

The large audience enjoyed singing along with Cockney Pride, some of the songs had not been heard for many years.
