Dear VOCS Members:
This is a very short OB, dealing with only one serious subject plus a thank you. We at VOCS are just back from vacation (including punting and picnic chained to the bank under the willows before Grantchester Meadows), and are now catching up on all sorts of duties, such as reporting on the 88th BRD – but that is for OB #135. Watch this space. More important for now is filling up our full complement of Bardnic seats!
STILL TICKETS LEFT: 8th BARDNIC 2018 – “AS YOU LIKE IT” CUM MUSIC BY THE BEATLES, AT BARD ON THE BEACH, WITH POTLUCK PICNIC IN THE MARQUEE TENT BEFORE – 6:00 P.M. ON JULY 14, 2018
Always a highlight of the Bard Summer Season is Bardnic. Bardnic combines a potluck picnic under the marquee tent in Bard on the Beach’s Summer village at Vanier Park followed by one of the Bard’s plays. By the magic of the Spirits of Potluck, there is always a wonderfully plentiful and balanced selection of foods, with wine, beer, and less lethal things to drink available from the Bard Bar.
This year, the play is As You Like It, for which more information is available online at:
The play is set in the 1960s and will be accompanied by twenty hits from the Beatles. We have thirty tickets purchased in good seats, but the play is being sold out for performances months ahead.
Getting a decent seat for this Bard production of As You Like It is already rather difficult.
We have a concession price of $52 per ticket for what would normally be $61 tickets, and Bard is charging us $300 for use of the marquee tent, so the price for a Bardnic ticket will be $62. It is unlikely that we will be able to get any more tickets for this performance, so get moving and respond to we at VOCS at moc.x1534756009elxon1534756009k@xon1534756009kt1534756009 if you want to be a Bardnicker this year! Pay by cash or cheque at the door.
As you like it, as it were….
We now have just over half the seats spoken for, so there are lots more left for those who might want to come to Bardnic but thought they were too late to reserve some for themselves and friends.
If you are one of those, do get in touch with we at VOCS at the email address above!
REMEMBER THE CALL FOR A USED CAMBRIDGE M.A. GOWN WITHOUT STRINGS?
We at VOCS are very pleased to report that the young lady going up to Cambridge next term who was seeking out an appropriate gown has very generously been given one by a VOCS member. Well done VOCS; that represents about UKP 75 saved by a perhaps otherwise starving student!
No, no, no, a gown not a dinner jacket!
Cheers, Summer lovely Summer…..
