EVENT – Coatham Penny Readings

Accreditation The Redcar and Saltburn-by-the-Sea Gazette 15/02/1878.


            The last of these entertainments for this season was given on Monday evening (11/02), in the School-room, Coatham. There was a full attendance, and the programme was usually long and attractive. The readings were all exceedingly good, without exception. The pianoforte duet by Miss and Mr. H. A. Jordison, was very effectively rendered, and received a vociferous encore. The part songs were not so well rendered as they might have been, owing, no doubt, to the one of sufficient practice together. At the conclusion, the Rev. L. B. Towne moved a vote of thanks to the ladies and gentleman who had given their services during the winter, and to the Rev. A. J. N. MacDonald, for his admirable organisation of the same. The following is the full programme:-Chorus, “The Peasants’ Serenade,” (Faust); reading, “Vat you please,” Rev. L.  B.
