At this meeting we will be entertained by some of our members with a variety of displays beginning with the letters M or N. These may – or may not – range from Malta to New Zealand or Monarchs to Newspapers. However one thing is certain, the evening will demonstrate that there is much more to our hobby than simply sticking in stamps and that one of the pleasures of collecting stamps or postal history is that you can very much “do your own thing”.
As the local society serving all in the St Albans area who are interested in stamps and postal history, the club welcomes visitors to its meetings, so why not come along for an interesting and enjoyable evening even if you don’t collect yourself.

Harpenden Musical Theatre will be transporting audiences to sunnier climes as they perform the classic Rodgers & Hammerstein musical ‘South Pacific’ at Harpenden Public Halls in March.
And this year they are supporting local charity, Harpenden Mencap who celebrate their 60th year and have set themselves the enormous goal of raising £60,000 during 2019.
South Pacific is set on an island paradise during World War II, where two parallel love stories are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war. With classic tunes such as ‘There is nothing like a dame’, ‘Bali Ha’i’ and ‘Gonna wash that man right outta my hair’ this is some enchanted evening not to be missed.
The show runs from Tuesday 26 March to Saturday 30 March 2019 and tickets are on sale now.
Box Office 01582 767525, or visit www.harpendenmusicaltheatre.com for details.
The Hardynge Choir’s Opening Concert of 2019, Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle will be performed on the 6th April at High Street Methodist Church, Harpenden at 7.30pm.
Petite Messe Solennelle (little solemn mass) was Rossini’s last major composition. With typical ironic wit, the Mass is neither ‘Petite’ nor ‘Solennelle’.
Scored for chorus, four soloists, two pianos and harmonium Rossini described it as “the last of my péchés de vieillesse” (sins of old age).
It was first performed on 14 March 1864 at the dedication of the private chapel of the Comte and Comtesse Pillet-Will in their new home in the Rue Moncey, Paris.
The Hardynge Choir will be conducted by Musical Director Rufus Frowde, with Charlotte-Anne Shipley, soprano; Jennifer Westwood, mezzo-soprano; Martin Hindmarsh, tenor and James Gower, bass; accompanied by Matthew Woodward and Linden Innes-Hopkins, pianos and Martin Ford, harmonium.
Tickets: Unreserved £14; Students £7; Under 16 free (ticket required) from 0845 4751664 or on line at firstname.lastname@example.org
