Programme Note: Noc-Turne!

IE wrote: “Ladies & Gentlemen, I am pleased to welcome you to our second full length Revue. For me life in all its facets is immensely entertaining and I hope you will find our enlargement and interpretation of it underlines this attitude. In this context, however, I should mention that we are politically and religiously uncommitted!!

I should like personally to wish you all a Happy Christmas and only GOOD things from the adverts for 1964.”
