The 2012 Extravaganza - 28th November

Once again, the end of the year was celebrated by a special meeting where the main business was "having a good time". The proceedings started with another amazing rendition of classics and carols by The Costa Blanca Male Voice Choir. They encouraged audience participation but we weren't anywhere near their standard.

Following on, the Jávea U3A Committee, along with a number of "willing helpers", put on a great performance which left the audience wishing the sherry and mince pies had been served before the show. Starring Sally Wells and Jackie Heaton and some strange men wearing womens' underwear, it was finished off by an expertly executed dance routine with dramatic swirling flashes of red and black.

Once again, the design, writing and choreography was brilliantly done by Sally Wells,
the inspiration for the whole show. Well done Sally!

The show was followed by a raffle in aid of our nominated charity Cancer Care Jávea with some excellent prizes, after which the audience finally got their mince pies and sherry!
