BUDDY!!!

What can I say?  Just a few of us spent this afternoon at the Pomegranate Theatre in Chesterfield, watching and listening to the amazing music of Buddy Holly, superb performances all round.

We watched his story unfold and then, a taste of the Big Bopper 29, and Richie Valens, just 17, both these fabulous artists died alongside Buddy Holly aged just 23, on that fateful flight from New York to Iowa, on the 3rd February 1959 .   Took us all back to our youth, brilliant, thanks for organising it Pam

Where have those 60 years gone?!!  Loved it!

Friday 20th September 2019

Thursday evening 19th September several  ACT members went to the Pomegranate Theatre, Chesterfield to see the Black Veil, a play adapted from a short story written by Charles Dickens.  It was a very dark production, not everyone’s cup of tea.  But looking beyond that it was a very clever adaptation well presented by just 3 actors, how do they remember all those line?

Today, Friday 20th, we went, again to the Pomegranate Theatre to see Downton Abbey the movie.  So as not to spoil it for those who may want to go all I would say is, it was fun, it was funny, it was lump in the throat sad, it was romantic on two fronts.  It was lighted hearted, with a story, there was exciting news and definite potential for a sequel!  We all agreed we go and see it again.  Overall did not disappoint, brilliant!

7th July 2019

What can I say?  ACT relaunched last night with a fanfare!  A group of us set out for an afternoon in Buxton before making our way to the Devonshire Dome to watch the Buxton Military Tattoo.  A truly wonderful experience.  All proceeds go to ABF The Soldiers Charity. the Army’s National Charity.

One of the photos shows a soldier up close and loud, several were stood around the balcony, this particular one stood between two of us while playing the opening fanfare, a privilege.
