School Dance Display

A Memory of Leicester

The Wyggeston Girls Grammar School put on a Dance display for Parents. I remember my mum & younger sister coming to watch and my friend and I took them to a local espresso bar afterwards.
I also recall a visit with my dad to see Swan Lake c1949.
And I've seen Ray Charles a couple of times in the 60s, also Oscar Peterson, Jacques Loussier, and Elton John at the start of his career.
I haven't lived in Leicester for many years. All ths events took place in the 50s/60s.
Though I did see the Russian Ballet c1990.
