Live Lounge Series 3

Members have enjoyed two very different performances over the last few weeks in the third of our Live Lounge Series. Versatile piano lounge singer Sofia Kirwan-Baez on Thursday 27th May and the wonderfully talented saxophonist Paul Booth on 2nd June. We welcome back pianist Karl Lutchmayer on 18th June for the last in this series.

Members were treated to a wonderful evening of saxophone music with Paul, with some clever technical tricks to include background music and other instruments, the hour went far too quickly. Click here to read more about Paul

Drive-in Cinema – Grease – Friday 28th May

Over 40 Members had a lovely evening enjoying the magic of the American style drive-in cinema in the Members’ Car Park. It was a fun and relaxing event for the whole family, with food delivered directly to their cars. It was such a success that we would love to organise more in the future.

Here’s what you said:

‘The drive-in movie on Friday was a fabulous evening! You must have all worked so hard, and it was great as everything was very well organised. The chocolate and cream waffles went down a storm with the girls, and the G&Ts for the mums were enjoyed in the back seats!’

‘I just want to say the children loved it last night – thank you for organising such a fun evening.’

‘Great use of a car park … converting a dead space at night into a fun venue.’

Virtual Tour – In the Shadow of The Abbey – exploring the area around Smith Square – Monday 8th June

On Monday, over 50 Members joined fellow Roehampton Club Member and City of Westminster Guide Rosalind Vincent for a fascinating virtual tour of the area around Smith Square. We learnt about the beautiful buildings and people who lived in the area.

Here’s what you said:

‘The photos and videos Rosalind took were amazingly professional; she has a very good eye. She has a lovely clear voice and gave us a very informative insight into the area. My husband and I walked around this area several times during the lockdown, and we did not manage to notice all these interesting buildings and sites.’

‘What an absolutely fascinating tour we were treated to. I know the area reasonably well but having a fresh look at the architecture in particular and hearing some of the anecdotes was wonderful. Thank you so very much for a lovely, informative, and so well researched tour, which we very much appreciated.’

‘Very good presenter. She had taken the trouble to film buildings she spoke about.’

An evening with two eminent journalists who certainly do not pull their punches – Chris Blackhurst and Matt Frei.
