Popular Artistes To Aid Programme
BORDERERS' DANCE BAND TO PLAY SELECTIONS
The Scouts of the 4th Hong Kong (Murray) and 4th Kowloon (Garrison) Troops are making preparations for what is hoped to the best entertainment of its kind ever staged in the Colony.
The concert will be held at the China Fleet Club Theatre on Wednesday, October 24, commencing at 8.45 p.m. sharp.
Many popular local artistes will figure on the programme, while the Scouts themselves will be responsible for a Grand Opening and Close as well as intermediate items in each half.
As a specimen of variety, the programme leaves little to be desired, containing within its bounds, songs - tenor and soprano, violin solos, dancing, part singing, humour, piano solos and dance band music in addition to plays and displays by the scouts.
The following artistes have promised their support:-
Mr. Victor Sanders, Professor G.Gonzales, Miss Helen and Stella Ho, Rev. J.N.Lewis Bryan, Mrs. Sinclair, Messrs. Grenham and Ferguson, and the talented Quartette of the Lincolnshire Regiment - Messrs. King, Trowt, Kime and Gotle.
By kind permission of the Officer Commanding and the officers of the South Wales Borderers, the dance band will render popular up to date elections.
The proceeds of the Concert are to be devoted to the funds of the 4th Hong Kong and 4th Kowloon Troops.
Tickets at $2.00 (reserved) and $1.00 (unreserved) are now available either from the Scouts or from the Anderson Music Co.
