CHRISTMAS CAVALCADE

I was once a pupil at the Elaine School of Dancing, Newgate, Pontefract, and on Sunday 22nd December 1940 we gave a ‘Christmas Cavalcade’ concert in the Assembly Rooms, with the proceeds going to the Pontefract War Appeal.

I was one of the tiny tots in ‘The Doll Dance’, the first of many war time concerts in which I took part.

If my memory is correct, it was during the performance that the air raid siren sounded. This was located in the Town Hall and consequently the noise was quite ear shattering but the concert carried on at the insistence of the audience.
