Enjoying yummy cakes and bakes whilst chatting to friends and making new ones.

On May 20, we have singer and entertainer Andy Ottley as Elvis, so I’m guessing we might have ‘a little less conversation’ whilst some of our guests ‘shake, rattle and roll’ to Andy in his ‘blue suede shoes’. You never know!

If you’re aged 60 years or over and you’d like to join us, please get in touch as we’d love to see you. Please note that you need to book ahead rather than just turn up. To book your seat, please call Kesgrave Community Centre on 01473 612648.
