During, and just after, WWII various entertainments took place at Pocklington. These included “Home grown “events put on by the Concert Party and visits by visiting entertainers. This page records some of those events.
"Punch Bowl" April 1945 [Pocklington Theatrical Company]
"Night Must Fall" 1945. Paul Daneman went on to be a star of stage,TV (Richard III in An Age of Kings, Spy Trap) and films (Zulu). Bill Saville as sound engineer said that, at a certain point of the play, a part of “Warsaw Concerto” had to be played. In those days, that meant dropping the record player arm precisely so the needle hit a specific place on the shellac (78rpm) record.
