Stars in Your Eyes

September 20, 2003

Devised by Angela Danks and Deborah Flanagan

Seventy members and guests attended our annual revue and supper evening. Fifteen brave souls entertained their friends and neighbours, daring us to guess, by means of a set of three clues, who they would be impersonating. The range covered everyone from names more familiar to grandparents to the very latest pop-stars and all stations in between. By means of an infallible high tech system, everyone managed to score maximum points and the result was an twelve way tie.

Don and his uke.

Don Hussey as George Formby,
