Last Friday night saw Queenie at Taverham Village Hall, doing a costumed talk for Costessey WI's group meeting. As one who lived in Taverham for a long time I was very familiar with my surroundings, and recognised a few of the ladies in the audience. The slightly foisty smell of the hall foyer was very evocative- it took me back to the endless Gang Show and Pantomime rehearsals, Guide & Scout functions and Harvest Festival celebrations of my formative years. The talk itself went extremely well- managed to shoehorn in a few extra funnies- and of course I was given the very much appreciated, nay, obligatory, cup of tea afterwards.
