Summer outing to Richmond

Susan organised a very successful outing for us on Friday, 31st July and we even stayed dry this year!

The main focus of the afternoon and evening was Richmond’s Georgian Theatre, where we enjoyed a fascinating guided tour of the entire building and then an evening performance of The Merry Wives of Windsor, performed by members of Richmond Amateur Dramatic Society. Comfortable seats in the boxes added to our enjoyment of this adaptation of the play, set in the 1920s.

Susan had also arranged for us to have a meal at the nearby Cross View Cafe & Restaurant. As we’d made our menu choices in advance, the service was swift and efficient. The fact that the management had arranged one huge table for us was a bonus, with everyone able to join in the conversation. WELL DONE, SUSAN!

Whether your interest is in poetry or prose, novels, short stories, plays, wacky humour, a more analytical style of writing, or just listening for the time being, you're very welcome.
