Contact emails are listed in the activity sheets/lists obtained during registration. (All venues will depend on numbers enrolling)

GILBERT & SULLIVAN (Shirley Mitchell)

We’ll view a series of DVDs of Gilbert and Sullivan light operas with a little information about their lives. Although the meetings are scheduled to last 2 hours the DVD may last a little longer. Not D’Oyly Carte but good music and wit.

Monthly; Tuesday (first) 2:00 - 4:00pm; Home-based

MUSIC APPRECIATION (Pat Oldale)  

Each month two members give presentations with music, of their choice to a selected theme each side of a coffee, tea and biscuits break. All members of this group are encouraged (but not obliged!) to participate in these sessions.

Monthly; Thursday (third) 10:00 -12:30; Home-based

OPERA (John Farr) 

We will continue to view operas from some of the most well- known opera houses, and enjoy the best of principal singers and choruses on the big screen. We start off with a Mozart opera, and continue with a variety of 19th Century composers, from the 'bel canto' period (Rossini) to the verismo work of Puccini. As last year, the wonderful music and drama will provoke both tears of laughter, and of sadness during the season!.

Monthly from October; Wednesday (first) 2:00 – 5:00pm; Ayton Village Hall

SCOTTISH COUNTRY DANCING (Margaret McGovern) 

Keeps the brain and body fit. Relieves stress. The laughter doing more good than the dancing ever will. Come and find out.

Weekly; Friday 1:30 - 3:30pm; Eyemouth Community Centre; starts 3rd October until week before Easter 2016.

SINGING FOR PLEASURE (Malcolm Bennett) 

For people who would like to sing more, and with others. Should not be seen as a 'Gareth Malone' type of group. Just singing a wide variety of songs - old and new-ish, of all types, for pleasure and the benefits of singing. Mostly unaccompanied.

Monthly; Wednesday (fourth) 2:00 - 3:30pm; Eyemouth Community Centre
