Contributed - Angels arrive at the Garbe

Last Saturday evening,March 20th, THE ANGELS THEATRE GROUP, in response to requests to take their Old Time Music Hall to the Western Algarve gave a performance at The Hotel Garbe, Armação de Pêra.

140 people sat down in the main restaurant to a superb three course buffet dinner with wine and were then entertained throughout the evening with a variety of songs, monologues and a melodrama in the Old Time Musical Hall tradition.
The Angels entertain for charity and their choice on this occasion was the Castelo Do Sonhos. Celia and Dave Mossman, representing the charity, arrived resplendant in period costume to welcome the audience and hand out song sheets. Other helpers, in costume strolled through the audience selling raffle tickets and receiving bids for a silent auction of an autographed bottle of wine from Sir Cliff Richard’s vineyard.

Those of the audience, who had arrived in period style costume, ,were rewarded with a ticket to enter a special free raffle.The prize being an escorted tour ,for two ,around Sir Cliff Richards vine yard – Adega do Cantor.

The enthusiastic audience joined in to sing -along to the choruses of the more well known songs. They were also in fine voice, when encouraged to boo the villain and cheer the hero in the melodrama. .
The fun evening resulted in raising 1,702.37 euros, which is the most money raised at any fund raising event for Castelo do Sonhos. This will go towards buying items from their wish list which includes beds and food.
The Angels would like to thank all those who support them in their endeavours.More about the group can be found on their web site
