Notes on Society's Christmas Outing, 10th December: 'A Country House at War'
The Society's seasonal event was a visit to Upton House in its wartime guise as the Samuels' Bank HQ. Various exhibits and re-enactors brought the wartime days to life, even to the storage and travels of Lord Bearsted's art treasures. Later Dr John Bland and the soprano, Pat Garland, led us in renditions of wartime and seasonal favourites, before we adjourned for the customary tea.
