Over the course of the evening approximately 40 items were heard by a very enthusiastic company.
The club excels in having not just the well known works of the Bard but lesser known gems too.

As can be seen there was a great mix of recitations, songs and speeches, all received with much enthusiasm by the company. Once again Michael and Paul provided a superb musical accompaniment and the traditional fare was well served by staff from the 'Tipsy Nipper'. The evening was smoothly presided over by club President Davie MacDonald and ended at midnight with the entire company singing Auld Lang Syne for the second time.
