Food, drink, laughter and tears!

The sun was shining for our trip to Manchester.

Hundreds of people gathered in Hardman Square, sipping cocktails and watching the Wimbledon Men’s Semi Finals on the big screen (a lovely way to end the working week).

The whole group came together in Carluccios where we shared pastas, risottos, breads and ice creams (and of course a few Peronis were taken too).

On arrival at the Opera House theatre – only 2 minutes walk away – we took our centre mid-stall seats for a perfect view of the stage, in anticipation of the show which would shortly begin.

The production on this occasion was “Ghost – The Musical” and it went down a treat.  We were entertained by a mix of upbeat songs, heart tugging ballads, comedy moments and mystery and magic.  Whilst the set had changed slightly since my 2 previous group outings it had mostly improved for the better.  There was plenty of toe-tapping and giggles, but most people were bleary eyed as the lights came up after a fully expected tear-jerker ending.

A good night was had by all – old friends met and new friends were made – here’s to the next one – cheers!
