Saturday took us back to the Potters Heron Hotel in Ampfield, Romsey. After their devastating fire recently, we were glad to see the venue in such great shape for the Romsey, Chandler’s Ford and District Round Table Ladies’ night.
The event was a celebration not only of their long suffering good ladies, but also of their outgoing Chairman. It was in his closing address where the trouble and mischief started!
Well known for his long speeches, the other members decided to turn the (round) tables on Mr Guest, interrupting his speech with their cabaret show. With music fading in during his first sentence, a meticulously rehearsed dance routine then took place, along with a fantastic parody of the well loved Disney song Be Our Guest, entitled “Be John Guest”. The performance then evolved into a Robin Hood sketch which had the audience members laugh out loud and gasp with shock – what more could anyone want from a cabaret show?
The band then kicked into action with some high tempo songs from the very start. The dance floor was quickly filled with guests boogying the night away. The crowd singing along with Craig and Sarah, the audience were even running up to have selfies whilst we were playing – what a great party atmosphere! With slick solos from Mat and massive fat punchy brass notes from the all girl brass line up, it was a great evening had by all, with lots of money raised for local charities to boot.
