Abbey United Reformed Church, Romsey

WW1 Project Update March 2017


Many thanks to all who attended and helped to prepare for the Variety show on Friday, 10 February.  Compèred by Romsey Town Mayor, Mr John Parker, and entertainment provided from various groups throughout the community the evening was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

The evening was based on an article from the Romsey Congregational Church Magazine of February 1916 which described the hall decorated with flags, plants and other items loaned from the local community. The hall was similarly decorated with Union Jacks, bunting and red, white and blue decorated tables; along with plants adorning the stage with the piano being brought alongside the stage to set the scene for the re-creation of our Military Social Evening.

Entertainment for the evening included poetry recitals, comedy sketches and songs and everyone enyoyed joining in with the choruses of the war time classics, as they would have done during the original event. A quiz was held during the evening based on Romsey and the war history. Refreshments followed the theme of traditional cakes, breads and jams of the war period, including an authentically made Trench cake, laid out on the table and accompanied by drinks of the time such as ginger beer, lemonade and ale donated by the Tipsy Pig.
