This afternoon, Millman Street Community Centre members welcomed back The Raggle Taggles, who performed a storming set with great gusto. Among their line-up were Norman, Canute, Joyce, Tessa and Margaret. They were joined by guest pianist, Laurence.
Among other tunes, The Raggle Taggles sang There’s No Business Like Show Business, True Love (from High Society), Hello, Young Lovers, Who’s Sorry Now?, White Cliffs of Dover, Consider Yourself, and a medley which included Knees Up Mother Brown, What A Rotten Song, My Old Man, and Show Me The Way To Go Home.
HCA members sang along and applauded, and thoroughly enjoyed themselves, with cries of “Encore!” ringing out. After the show, members and performers enjoyed tea and food.
What was our members’ verdict? “It wasn’t bad,” George said. Ivy enjoyed herself. “It was nice,” she said. “Keeps you out of mischief!”
“It was very nice,” said Fred, adding that the singers played “some classics.”
Olive also enjoyed herself, as did Noreen, who gave The Raggle Taggles the thumbs up.
“I always like music,” said Mulegetta. “It’s part of my nature!”
Margaret also enjoyed The Raggle Taggles. “It makes a change,” she said. She enjoyed a sing-along: “Why not?” she said, adding: “I liked the piano player!”
“I was happy to have come with them today,” said ivory-tinkler Laurence.
“Nice!” said Anne. Joan also enjoyed a sing-along. “Very nice,” she enthused. “We all know all the songs.”
Helena “Thought it was great!”
“I enjoyed it,” said Queenie. “It was lovely; cheered us all up!”
Holborn Community Association would like to thank The Raggle Taggles for once again entertaining our members at Millman Street Centre. We hope that they will return to perform again in the future, and inspire further outbreaks of fun.
