Lancaster at War – Life in the City in World War II

A talk by John Fidler

It’s that time of year aready!  Barton Road Centre’s 5th annual Party Pieces should be an evening to remember.  Our Christmas Fairy will be back again, along with a host of other acts to delight and amuse you.  This is our good old fashioned evening of entertainment – a night where community members add their names to the programme to give you a splendid show that you will never forget!

A special highlight this year will be our very own choir, fresh from performing at The Platform’s Big Sing and by special request, at the Morecambe Lights Switch On.  Not to be missed!

To book your tickets, ring Denise on 01524 65622, or 07480495924 – do it now, they’re selling fast!
