It quickly became evident the main advantage of moving from Buxton to Harrogate for the Festival was Betty’s Teashop. Fortified by cake the Society triumphed and the appreciative audience carried on applauding long after the curtain came down, much to our delight.

Back together singing at last!
|Everyone at the Big Sing|
Finally, the moment we’ve been waiting for for so long, PBGS back together singing again!
This is The PBGS Big Sing, recording the chorus numbers for our 50th Anniversary CD of ‘Trial by Jury’ and ‘The Sorcerer’ at Area 88 in Milton Keynes. Over the last 15 months we have all stayed in touch through Zoom with show readings, quizzes and bingo nights, but this is the real thing - all of us raising our voices together doing what we love. Many thanks to our MD, Graham Thomson, for keeping us together and making the day such fun, to Cynthia at the piano with her page-turner-extraordinaire other half, and to the wonderful Mike Crofts on sound. And also to Teresa and Jon Newham for photos and looking after us all. This was ‘too much happiness’. We really raised that roof!
Watch this space for details of the CD when we have finished recording and production.
