Speaker Programme for Remainder of 2019

 20th November 2019       Speaker:  Mike Storr                                      Talk: “Masters of Mirth”

This is a whimsical look at some of Music Hall’s laughter makers.  During the presentation Mike will explain how Music Hall began and talk about his favourite music hall characters. He will give examples of their acts including their famous monologues.  Mike will illustrate his talk with slides. Mike was born in Lincoln where he lived for the first 25 years of his life.  He has subsequently been made a Freeman of the City of Lincoln.  He worked for I.C.I in ‘far, flung places’ …. Slough, Cambridge, Bristol before settling in Nottingham in 1979.  Mike has been a Rotarian of 35 years and is an experienced public speaker.

 18th December  2019       Speaker: Dave Moylan                                  Talk: Comedy, Magic and Me!

Dave Moylan is a professional comedy magician.  He talks of his life in the world of show business, recalling his work with some of his country’s best-known entertainers incorporating many hilarious tales and anecdotes and some bewildering magic tricks along the way.    This talk has magic, music and nostalgia but above all it has lots and lot of laughter. Dave has been involved in the world of entertainment for much of his adult life.  First as a musician playing all kinds of music all over the UK (and Germany), then as a magician, practising his deceptions far and wide at fetes, galas, parties, corporate events, weddings and such.  Dave is currently resident magician at Warwick Castle, where, as well as performing at some of their very posh events, his comedy magic stage show forms the highlight of the medieval banquet - The King Maker Feast. 


Bingham U3A's 20th Anniversary

Bingham U3A would like to celebrate its 20th Anniversary in 2020 with a bit of a do. I know this seems a long way off but we request your suggestions  of how to make this an event that everyone will like and which will be appropriate for the occasion.
Following the results form the questionnaires sent out earlier this year we are arranging a special speaker for the meeting in September 2020 together with various other activities -  a boat trip and a quiz afternoon with tea.
Please contact Val Scott on 01949 837376 with your ideas or post your suggestions in the Box at the Monthly Meeting
Also contact Val if you would like to help with this event.
