A couple of Saturdays ago I attended the 90th anniversary celebrations of the Royal British Legion at a very special concert in Flitwick village hall, which comes complete with a stage and room to seat a couple of hundred people. And the hall was packed to the rafters.
The concert was in the style of a war time music hall with local people who did the odd 'turn' putting together a show. There were singing solos, some better than others. Various musicians, a man dressed in a 1940’s army uniform playing the accordion to which we all sang ‘It’s a Long Way to Tipperary’ and other old time favourites… and we had Father Dennis.
Father Dennis was the stand up comedian and one of the funniest men I have ever heard.
I cannot say how much I enjoyed myself. The atmosphere in the village hall was fantastic, people of all ages had a great sing along and a good laugh whilst we remembered a very important time in our history.
Well done to all, the British legion and Fr Dennis. To everyone who came and supported, you put on a great evening, we all had a fantastic time and I can’t wait for the next one.
Finally, a big thank you to the non-supportive man who emailed with very helpful advice on how to extract pictures from the camera, even without a cable!
