Getting Together social clubs are no strangers to a good “knees up”, April’s 1940s indoor street party can attest to that. July 28th saw the Holywell Community Centre rocking back to the 1950s.
Set up beautifully as an American diner, it was Grease Lightning epitomized, with great food, fresh performances and warm company on the menu.
Getting Together members and non-members alike made up the guest list, with more than a few keen souls joining the festivities early.
Rock ‘n’ Roll was the theme, perfectly captured by the first act, the incredible Ashley Webber, bringing the finest Buddy Holly tribute you’ll see. With his fine blend of talent and personality, he got the crowd on their feet, ending with a fine rendition of Nat King Cole.
With appetites truly wetted it was time for American burgers and fries, provided by locals “The Viking”.
The fantastic Retro Boys, led by Cody Lee, were next to the stage, providing a perfect mix of feel good rock ‘n’ roll classics and big ballads to get everyone going.
Those burgers were earnt when guests took to the dancefloor, aided by the marvellous Rocking Rebels, local dance leaders who inspired others to get moving, fleet of foot or not.
The day was a huge success, and we can’t wait for the next one on October 1st, celebrating Black History Month. For information about future events and weekly social clubs, please call 01923 216967, or visit www.gettingtogether.org
