With its community feel, our station likes to interview charity and community organisations, promoting their various roles and events. And when we can, we like to go along and see something we have promoted.
When you put all the above together, you can only expect the best, and that’s what the first “Midsummer Extravaganza” variety show gave us. Hosted and sponsored by Humphris funerals, it was a variety show, a brilliant showcase for all those involved and the audience.
Well done to Humphris funerals and a special mention to Susan Dowers for putting on a really enjoyable and packed out “Midsummer Extravaganza”.
A raffle was held for three worthy causes, Alzheimer’s Research UK, BYHP (Banbury Young Homeless Project) and Let’s Play Project.
We have so much talent in the community, and this celebration of our local performing arts groups and their willingness to support each other was a credit for all concerned.
Top marks for a great night, well done, bring on the next one.
