Marking Valentine’s Day with some fun & games!

Canterbury Rotarians and guests had a fun evening to mark Valentine’s day on February 14th.

After a friendly game of Heads & Tails (which got hearts nicely warmed up as everyone stood or sat down according to whether they’d placed their hands on their heads or “tails”) and a game of Higher or Lower (which, naturally, featured the Queen of Hearts, and during which gameshow “host” PP Peter Hermitage remarked that people who “played their cards right” would go home with a lovely prize), attendees took part in a 3-round quiz on classic romantic movies such as Dr Zhivago and Gone with the Wind.

At the end of the evening everyone was treated to a 15-minute version of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet written by Peter and starring Rtn Jim Gascoyne as raconteur, PP Martin Ward as the young lover, Romeo, and Peter as his rather “beautiful” sweetheart,  Juliet. Peter also played Juliet’s feisty cousin Tybalt, meaning he had to do quite a few rapid wig changes and had some interesting dialogues!

The evening ended on a sweet note as quiz winners went home with a tin of Love Hearts.
