Musical Review

                                   

The second half of the fundraiser, entitled 'A Musical Review, was compared by Phil Davies who introduced the acts & also introduced a music/film based quiz into the mix. Liam Daly sang two songs finishing off with 'Nessun Dorma'. Linda Coombes sang a medley of songs.

 

         

       John Sadler sings two songs. Sam Logan mimics the legendary Louis Armstrong & sings 'What a Wonderful World'. Steve Williams read out a very funny Monologue  

      

John Sadler & Linda Coombes sing a duet together & enjoy the experience
