The top picture of these two was given to the Gazette by one of our readers.
It shows Glendale Choral Society in the 1980s with their production of ‘Iolanthe’. In the front left is Sheila Hall playing the Fairie Queen. Sheila sadly died recently, but is well remembered for stunning performances. Do you recognise anyone else? The bottom image from the Festival of Britain sparked memories for Barbara Young, who got in touch to say her sister Sally is on the right of the middle row next to Freda Hattle. Sally died last year and Barbara said it was ‘lovely to see her’.
