Oh Yes It Was

Another February Half-Term gone, another DVC production delivered.

Last week in Denton saw three performances of this year's Panto - "Space Wars", a loose, sometimes very loose, combination of several well-known themes from Star Wars, Star Trek etc.

A sell-out every night, it was much enjoyed by the audience and, possibly more important, the cast and crew had a whale of a time.

Everybody involved including: the orchestra, the set painters, the costume creators, the sound and lights operators, the Box Office Dolly, etc. should be congratulated on a great team effort. A special vote of thanks must go to the Director, Steve Barrett, for pulling it all together so well.

A Synopsis, full details of the Cast etc. and a Review, by Old Stager, together with some Photos, are available in the DVC History Section.

Another Great Quiz Night

The Village Hall was packed last night for the Annual Village Quiz.

It followed in the great tradition of these events, with a hotly contested Quiz, contested in the most civilised fashion of course, but in the normal Denton way, ensuring that everyone had a good time.

The winners, and now holders of the "Brain of Denton" trophy, were - "Tom's Team" with "Bobby's Dazzlers" in second place and "The Great 8" third. Last place went to "Arty Facts", who therefore won the Wooden Spoon trophy.

Rather surprisingly, this year very few people argued with the Question-mistress over her answers to her questions. Most unusual. The "Bone of Contention" trophy was awarded to Rosemary Gibson but nobody on her team could work out why?

We all had a great time and thanks must be recorded to everyone involved in the event, obviously to Denise Grant and to her excellent assistant Peter, but also to the cooking team - who produced a great meal at half-time, the bar staff, and the organisers of the raffle.

Well done Everyone!

Events Galore
