Details of forthcoming and previous social events.  We're always up to something, dive in to find out more information... 

Nicky surpassed herself again by throwing an amazing Fairytale-themed Christmas party.  A team of helpers transformed the Hut into a magical fairyland complete with enchanted fountain, the Ugly Duckling’s pond and Cinderella’s pumpkin carriage – it was a vision to behold!

We saw some exotic costumes as well, most memorably the Snow Queen and the most terrifying Snowman I think any of us has ever seen!  Peter Pan flew in, Snow White’s Evil Stepmother corrupted one of the Dwarves for the evening, and the Ugly Stepsisters also put in an appearance.

The 2008 Awards Evening was a swinging success as usual, and the Gee and her Awards committee worked tirelessly to put on a fabulous meal, and turn the hall into a venue fit for such a prestigious event.

Best Get Out of That / Best Cock Up / Best Cover Up - The sound, lighting and backstage team on Money! Money! Money!  - For the spectacular recovery when equipment was stolen during the break in at the hall.

And we had some fantastic cabaret performances to entertain us between courses…

Keith and Gabi got us off to a fine start with their performance of Let’s Face The Music and Dance.

Then Gabi swallowed her nerves and braved the stage again when she and Christine gave a fantastic performance of Loathing from Wicked.

Against their better judgement Ellie, Angela, Nicky H and Louise performed a hilarious rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody – curry style!

Gee and Debs made us all giggle with their version of French and Saunders’ ballerina sketch.

And then Jay rounded off proceedings with his ever-changing ATG Anthem which had a couple of new verses written especially for the evening and had everyone singing along.

All in all it was another brilliant evening, and a celebration of the productions of the past two years, and 40 years of ATG.  We’re all looking forward to the 2010 Awards!
