The English Speaking Players Association


  November 2017

Dear Members and Friends,


Please note that our Thespa evening is on Wednesday 29th November.

We had a very entertaining evening in October and I am sure November will be stimulating.


We start with our A.G.M. Hopefully you all have received the paperwork. Please let me know if you have not had the 2 attachments sent on Oct 30th.


This month we are presenting  “your own,your very own”, Colin Pollard, master of the gavel in many Old Time Music Halls. I'm sure he will give us some amusing anecdotes as well as fascinating facts.


We will have our usual 3 course meal from Terry then:-


Our evening continues with a play called “Silver Wedding” written by our own

Margaret Spencer-Brooks





The Board would like to inform you in advance that we hope to ratify our new Statutes at the A.G.M. We only have 2 slight alterations from the past which are:-

that Board members may be in place for 4 years,if they so desire and our Season will follow the Fiscal year.

That means that all current memberships will be valid until December. We look forward to new nominations to the Board as we have only the minimum people required at the moment.  

Sadly our present President has regretfully announced that he is standing down. We will miss his banter, his hard work & dedication. 

As usual, in order to reserve a place you need to contact or phone 622454422.


We need to know exactly how many in your party and who will be will be coming. We also need to know if there are any special dietary requirements.  Please let us know by Friday 20th making sure that we have a phone contact number or email address.

Please remember that members pay €16 for the evening and guests €18. It would be much appreciated if you could bring the correct amount to avoid giving change


We hope to see you soon!

Yours sincerely

Janet Gillett

Secretary to Thespa
