Chamber Christmas Concert
In conjunction with Wendover Chamber, and featuring the Panda Players, Chiltern Chamber finished its 2015 evening events programme with a bang!
Chamber members and friends were treated to a great programme of entertainment at a special venue – the King’s Chapel, Old Amersham.
The Panda Players Amateur Dramatics and Concert Party Group treated us to a wonderful mixed programme of seasonal music, from traditional carols to Christmas ‘standards’. Particularly memorable were a solo rendition of ‘A Winter’s Tale’ (a hit for David Essex) by Chamber member James Moorcroft, and the whole assembly being led in a participatory version of The Twelve Days of Christmas.
The Panda Players then presented a radio-style comic melodrama (think Goons or Around the Horn), followed by a repeat performance featuring volunteers from the Chamber. Highlight of the latter was Martyn Hemmings’ death scene, shot down by the cruel squire (the Chamber webmaster)!
The Panda Players can be seen next March in their production of Goodbye Mister Tom: The Musical. This will be held from 9th to 12th March 2016, at The Elgiva Theatre, Chesham. They certainly deserve the support of the Chamber and its members!
