Organising Committee

The evening started with David Arnold welcoming everyone and saying that Waiters would soon be bringing around the "Bangers and Mash". This was a hot plate of Sausages, Baked Beans & mashed potatoes with onion gravy. This was washed down with bottles of drink brought from home.

When this course had been cleared away, the Cockney Pride appeared on stage dressed as Pearly Kings & Queens but supporting musical instruments.

The famous Cockney Pride band

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.
