This cult rock’n’roll Panto has over 16 classic rock and soul songs, sung and played live by the cast of actor musicians.

The Panto was 2 hours of fun, filled with colourful sets, shock frocks on Nurse Trott with mad gags, slapstick galore and even Panto puppets.

Audience participation with the cast prompts and water sprays helped to toward the evenings comedy. Oooh! yes it did!

Ten years ago, Birmingham-based Rotary member Azad Choudhury returned to his home village in the Sylhet region of Bangladesh. His visit inspired him to build a school, and a decade on, with support from Rotary clubs in the West Midlands, his vision has become a reality. Without a school, the prospect of education for local children was almost nil, with opportunities to enrol in colleges of further and higher education denied to them

Rotary is delighted to welcome film producer Jonathan Cavendish on board as a Purple4Polio Ambassador. Jonathan is the producer of Breathe , the remarkable true story of his father Robin, who, with the support of his wife Diana, refused to let contracting polio stop him from living life to the full. After bringing this inspirational film to the big screen, Jonathan has a very personal connection to the disease and a passion for ensuring that we finish the job of ending polio now and forever.

Chester Deva Rotarians and their guests met at ‘Escapism’ Chester a game challenge for all.

Having split into 3 teams of four persons, each team chose individual rooms either easy or hard. They were then locked into one of the Live Escape Rooms and were told, “there was only one way in & one way out”. Each team was given one hour to escape their chosen individual Rooms by hunting the clues, cracking codes and solving puzzles.

The three Rooms chosen were  1) ‘Area 51’ – Where the team had to escape the laboratory or die of the virus?

2) ‘The Missing’ – Where the team must solve the mystery of missing friends in the forest or themselves be lost forever?

3) ‘Taken’ – Where the team taken hostage must break free of their kidnappers?

Unfortunately only one of the three teams actually beat the clock and escaped their room in the allocated 60 minutes.

This team Ian, Simon, Karine and Malcolm escaped ‘Area 51’, a high difficulty room by working as a team through the clues, codes and puzzles to escape early from this room.

The ‘A’ Team Escaped “Area 51”

The other teams although close, needed to be released after the 60 minutes from their escape rooms as the game time had run out.

However all agreed that the social evening had been challenging and a great success.
