Many U3A groups and groups connected to U3A added their magic performances to the show. The whole theme of the show was Love in all its aspects.
Diane Williams brought all the groups together and directed the performance.
Diane’s words are so apt at this time in our community when we need to step back, make sure that our community is safe and secure and to make sure that we are particularly caring for the elderly who cannot get out and about easily to visit or to do their shopping.
Diane said that when trying to think of a name for the show, she researched films/show sayings with LOVE in their title: ‘Love Actually,’ ‘Eat, Pray, Love,’ ‘Shakespeare in Love,” and many others.
Diane said, “With freedom, books flowers, music and the moon, who could not be happy?”
“Keep Love in your heart. A life without love is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.”
“No Love without forgiveness, no forgiveness without Love.” “A lover will give you a kiss, a friend a hug, but a dog will give you her heart.”
“The five Ss of sports training are stamina, speed, strength, skill and spirit, but the greatest is spirit.”
“A champion is someone who gets up when he/she can’t.”
“A Nation’s culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people.”
During WW Two, Wintston Churchill was asked to cut funding for the Arts. He replied, “THEN WHAT ARE WE FIGHTING FOR?”
“LOVE ALWAYS AND ALL WAYS” was a variety show with a powerful message.
We are living in quite uncertain times at the moment, so the theme of Love one Another is a powerful message which can be embraced by all our community, as we look out for each other and make sure that neighbours and friends are OK. Thanks to everyone who shared in the joy of the evening.
