—————————————————————————————————————–HHR Variety Show

After a prolonged absence, thanks to the pandemic, HHR’s popular Variety show returned to Old Harlow’s Victoria Hall Theatre on the 3rd of February. Music, Magic, Street Dance, Comedy and the usual fooling around kept a sold-out audience entertained on a cold Saturday night, as well as raising vital funds towards HHR’s ever present overheads.

The pictures below are from the rehearsal on the Saturday afternoon, and given some of the costumes that appeared for the evening performance, possibly the better advertisement!

All of the performers appeared without charge, and we thank them for their support. You’ll hear some of them soon on the radio as they come in to be interviewed by our team.

——————————————————————————————————————-
