OLDE TYME music hall comes to Appledore this week with an evening of fun featuring the West Quay Fundraisers - and also yourselves!St Mary's Church Hall will be the venue for such olde tyme favourites as Flanagan and Allen, the Laughing Policeman, a Stanley Holloway monologue and a sand dance with a difference.Mary Hawkins will be tickling the ivories for traditional music hall songs and there will be plenty of opportunity to sing along with old favourites. Dressing up is optional for the audience, but there will be a prize for the best costume. The Master of Ceremonies will keep everyone in order and a rousing finale will be followed by a complimentary glass of wine in the Green Room.West Quay Fundraisers are a group of staff and customers from neighbouring riverside pubs The Beaver Inn and the Royal George in Irsha Street, who raise thousands of pounds each year for local charities and organisations. Their fund raising begins with a New Year's Day dip in the river and continues with fun days, auctions, raffles, a Christmas Bazaar and whatever else they can think of to raise money. The Old Tyme Music Hall is a new venture for them into the world of entertainment.The curtain goes up in the church hall at 7.30pm this Friday, but such is the expectancy of an edifying extravaganza of exceptional entertainment... that tickets are already sold out!In 2007 the West Quay Fundraisers distributed nearly £7000 between local charities including both the hospices, as well as village groups and youth organisations.
