Sister Act – Sat 25th April
A total of 15 club members attended ‘The Tunbridge Wells Operatic and Dramatic Societies’ rendition of
Sister Act on Saturday 26th April. The musical version, based on the 1992 comedy film starring Whoppi
Goldberg, was first performed in the West End in 2009. Deloris is a lounge singer who has been put

repair and due to be sold for development. The production was up to TWODS normal high standard which was
more than exceeded by the lead singer. TWODS productions more than equal the professionalism of the West
Pashley Manor Tulip Festival – Sun 3RD May
6 members visited the Pashley Manor Tulip Festival. The forecasters were correct and we had a dry cool
afternoon with some sunny spells. We were taken back by the wonderful displays of beautiful and elegant
tulips. Darwin,lily flowering, parrot, fringed, viridiflora, double, foresteriana, single and other categories. They
advertise 25,000, we did not count them and took their word for it; they were everywhere. The planting and
colour combinations were stunning, and our timing was perfect to see them all, even the lates ready to show
their full glory. We had tea and cake next to a bed of Marianne tulips and chatted about everything including
the bluebell woods which were lovely, but not intense. Four purchased some bulbs, one got carried away and will
have to ‘hot bed’ the garden. Thank you, we look forward to your bluebell walk next week.
