Our performance at St Martin’s Church on 12th November began with a call from 3 master drummers and members of WWB handing out leaflets outside of the church to members of the public to invite them into what has to be (in my opinion) or best ever group performance.
Sue Brown, our group leader introduced the group; its background, its members, its past performances and set this one in context.
Then the performances began. Poetry, prose, music, song and dance. Each piece moving in its own way. There were some stunning performances. Everyone stepped up a notch or two to deliver a cohesive performance that really showed what WWB is all about.
When we all came together on stage to sing the final part of the chorus ‘There is more that unites us than that which divides us’ and to take our bow… there was at least one person giving us a standing ovation.
Massive thanks to all the people who travelled far and wide to come and see us. Your presence was greatly appreciated. You were such a warm and encouraging audience.
Massive thanks also to Sue Brown for her patience in helping us to hone our performance skills. We couldn’t have done it without you.
These are some of the times when I am pleased, proud and happy to be a member of the wonderful Writers Without Borders.
