We are pleased to welcome back the Vinyl Capris at #LAF2018 – the VC’s are a four-piece band influenced by Motown Soul, “most things mod and some good ol’ jingly indie!” The band’s sets are light-hearted and chatty and a balance of their own songs – often likened to include Madness, Squeeze, Style Council and the Blockheads and covers from bands like The Beatles, The Jam, Martha Reeves, Kirsty McColl and The Kinks.
Katharine Collett will be singing vintage jazz and swing songs from the 1920 through to the 1950s and beyond. Songs such as “Night and Day” and “Summertime”.
Come along to hear songs from the roaring 20s, the war years and the swinging 50s. Her upbeat style and choice of songs is guaranteed to get your feet tapping and may even get you dancing in the aisles!
Katharine is a popular local speaker and singer with a range of cabaret style talks suitable for after lunch or dinner or for regular monthly meetings.

Do you remember the last time you connected with Nature?
Was it fleeting and forgotten?
Was it lingering and profound?
Phenomena of Nature are omnipresent.
We all make the choice to listen and feel,
or allow ourselves to become unNaturally Numb.
Hear the amazing story of Grace Kimmins (1870 – 1954), a forceful, charismatic woman who established a pioneering craft school for the disabled at Chailey in 1903. She instilled in the pupils a determination to focus on what they could achieve, not on what they couldn’t.
The Chailey Heritage Foundation, which was founded as the Chailey Heritage, is an English charity that owns and runs the Chailey Heritage School. It was founded out of the Guild of the Poor Brave Things in 1903 by Dame Grace Kimmins.
The foundation specialises in support of children and young people with complex physical disabilities and health needs – predominantly through the Chailey Heritage School. There will be a collection for Chailey Heritage at the talk.
