    Quicksilver present - Make 'Em laugh

    7:30 pmBowes & Gilmonby Village HallGraham Henley 01833 628357£10 Adults (£9 concs, £5 students)

    Celebrating 100 years of Comic Song. From the first Savoy Operas of the 1870s Comedy was King and the jovial genius of Gilbert and Sullivan, through Music Hall, Joyce Grenfell, Noel Coward, Flanders and Swann, old Uncle Tom Lehrer and all and might be said to have raised its last belly-laughs with Jake Thackery, Richard Stilgoe and Victoria Wood in the 80's

    Those hundred years of hilarity are brought back to life by QuickSilver for an evening of sparkling song-based entertainment.
    Together Grant and Hilary revive memories of  the great stars  (and a few acts who hardly made it above the printer’s credits) in a celebration of that great institution, the well-crafted comic song.
