From David Kiely:
On Saturday October 15th a big group of us left Morpeth to attended The Last Night of the Proms at The City Hall, Newcastle.
The mini bus was hired from Pegswood and when it turned up, it raised a few eyebrows. It was luxurious with tables and curtains. Only the best for St George’s Community Players!!
The City Hall was packed and we were entertained by a beautiful selection of classical singing and music. They even had a local school choir singing two songs. One from Les Misérables and the other was a Whitney Huston song… No, not that one about I will always love you..
Every seat was issued with a Union Flag to wave about wildly whenever you felt the urge and obviously half way through the second half we all complied. We had the renditions of Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory and Rule Britannia towards the end and the place was alive with people standing and singing loudly. Flagged were waffing all over the place, which acted as air conditioning surprisingly. Ilona, who was sitting behind me, kept me cool with her fervent flag waving. I hope I did likewise to the lady in front of me.
It all finished with Aud Lang Syne > as it came to a glorious end.
Thanks to the gang who came along to enjoy the evening. I hope the family and friends you brought enjoyed it too?
