... pass on my thanks for what I thought was one of the most
entertaining, best-prepared and best-delivered sessions we've had for a
I was impressed by the content of the story, the singing, and the
excellently put-together graphics.
Do they offer shows on different topics? When can we book them?

What is a zoom meeting?
zoom is a way of connecting people through the internet. It shares video and sound from the meeting host to your computer (or phone, or tablet…) - and it shares pictures from your computer camera and microphone back to the meeting. You can turn off your camera, and during the meeting, the host will probably mute everyone to prevent lots of sound getting in the way of what is being said or shared.
When you join you will see the meeting host screen and other attendees. You can join in and chat with sound or typed chat, or you can sit and just watch what is going on.
What equipment do I need?
A phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer connected to the internet. Speakers are useful but not essential. The bigger the screen, the better you will be able to see, the better the speakers, the better the sound will be.

Thank you so much for the most enjoyable show which you gave to
(our U3A) yesterday. As you no doubt gathered,
I thoroughly enjoyed it and I was certainly not alone for,
after you left the Zoom meeting,
we all agreed what a good afternoon it had been.
Thank you both for a really excellent performance this morning.
It was just what we needed to relaunch our programme
