Last Friday (15th December), Millman Street Centre members enjoyed a Christmas Party, with music by jazz band Ronnie Scott’s Rejects. Former Older Peoples’ Manager Sue turned up to see old friends, current Manager Andrew was observed “cutting a rug” as the young people say (or at least they did, circa 1926), and our members enjoyed a good old knees-up (health of said patellas permitting). There was food, glorious food; drink, Christmas crackers, tinsel a-plenty and a fully festive atmosphere.
Ronnie Scott’s Rejects are fronted by Hazel Holder, who has some West End and Broadway shows under her belt. During the gig, various photographs were taken, some by Andrew, Ken and Hanif. Ken’s are often of an, erm, ethereal quality (and in no way blurred):
The band played a selection of festive tunes, causing an outbreak of dancing, singing along and general enjoyment. There was even a guest appearance by Alternative Santa, who – according to Hanif – is known as Walter when it’s not alternative festive season. Andrew’s photos captured some of the atmosphere:

Holborn Community Association would like to thank Ronnie Scott’s Rejects for entertaining our members at Millman Street Community Centre. We hope they will perform for us again, and we wish them a very Merry Christmas and, of course, a fantastic 2018.
As is often the case when visiting musicians perform at Millman Street Centre, photos capture the unintended, the odd, and the downright bizarre. See for yourselves in this Rogue’s Gallery:
