A GOOD old fashioned 'knees-up' is in store when the Dunmow Players put on a Variety Music Hall show at Foakes Hall next month.

Sue Hartwell, Dunmow Players secretary, said: "It's going to be a good, old fashioned night of entertainment that is suitable for all the family."

Among the acts will be performances of James Bond themes, songs with a Parisian lilt, and a good old Cockney knees-up including Lambeth Walk, Any Old Iron and Daisy, Daisy. Other songs will be from the pre-1940s era and will also be a selection of songs with a seasonal feel including George Gershwin's Summertime from Porgy and Bess.

Joseph Mitchell will be showing off his award-winning dance skills and there will be comedy routines throughout the entire evening.
