Good morning all, how are you?
There remains so much uncertainty regarding the Covid rules and possible restrictions that might come into place. I will do my best to keep you updated with regards to Dragon Hall activities. I am in the ‘office’ until Christmas Eve, so if you have a problem, do please email me and I will do my best to help out in any way I can.
On a happier note, the Flamenco Class would like to wish you a ‘Merry Christmas’. Here is there dance routine that they rehearsed last Thursday. It was lovely to watch and I want to share it with you. Please click the link and leave a ‘like’.
If you are interested in joining the class next year, please email me.
WEDNESDAY 22nd December at 2pm
Community zoom talk from Buckingham Palace – Royal Collection Trust. This online session will be about the Pantomime display at Windsor Castle and the productions produced by and starring the Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret Rose when they were evacuated to the Castle during the Second World War.
Please email me for the ZOOM joining details
