This Festive Season, Millman Street Community will host a scintillating cornucopia of Christmas parties, a Dinner, and live performances from friends old and new. These include cherished regulars like Mrs H and the Singalong band, the been-here-before-but-not-for-a-while The Daisy Bowlers, and – for the first time at Millman Street – The Sugar Sisters. Details below – we could have put them here, but thought it better that you have to wade through distracting photos before you get to them. And even if you scroll down feverishly for said details, you might just catch a glimpse of something that takes your fancy…
Carmen – our Activities Coordinator – has already been busy with the Christmas decorations at the centre. Take a butchers at the baubles, tinsel and – last but not least – the Christmas tree in the slideshow:
The Promised details are below, but first some more pictures of the various performers champing at the bit to entertain our members, and a bit of background on some of ’em. Mrs H and the Singalong Band should need no introduction for seasoned readers (see sundry other of their performances at Millman Street Centre).
The Daisy Bowlers are Debbie, Heather and Dave. they perform quirky tunes, from the Charleston to jive, with ukele, double bass and other instruments. They appeared at Millman Street last year, in conjunction with CLOD Ensemble, and, after their busy year, HCA are honoured to welcome them back this Christmas.
The Sugar Singers comprise of Ruby, Stac and Heather. A love of 3-part harmonies, ukelele and red lipstick brought them together, it seems. They play everything from 1940’s swing to 1990’s R&B and calypso. They have appeared on the late Terry Wogan’s Radio 2 show, BBC1’s The One Show, the Chelsea Flower Show and as the house band for BBC1’s Children In Need live show. HCA looks forward to seeing them perform for our members.
