Band Christmas Dinner 2018

We returned to the Llangeview Lodge for our band Christmas Dinner and what a jolly good time we had!

Friends and partners joined us for some delicious food and a quiz. The evening concluded with a ukulele jam and performances from individual members of the band. We discovered quite a few our members have been 'hiding their lights under a bushel' and with a little ‘Dutch courage’ they showcased their talents to perfection!
