Despite many petitions against, Jo & Nick were back to perform 'Whispering Grass' as only they can (or should!)

Clare & Chris gave us something bravely Brazilian

Cavan is back, this time as magician 'Tom Arto'
– bravely sawing his own arm off!

And Deb's unafraid to sing 'Yellow'

Mel White & Sarah Horne as 'Barry & Freda' remember Victoria Wood
with their rendition of her 'Let's Do It'

Rod is back, looking every inch William Shakespeare (or it it GBS?),
telling us of the Upstart Crow's complaints about lock-down

Sister act: Sarah on clarinet and Emma on vocals with Stevie on guitar give us 'Them There Eyes'

Angela recites Pam Ayres poetic reflections on 'The Coronavirus'

Mel leads us into the Finale with 'There'll Always Be An England' …

… and we end the evening with our own International version of 'Show Me the Way to Go Home'

And our thanks, as ever, to Jo Levy at the pianoforte.
