Caroline's Soup Evening

Held at Church of the Ascension, The Avenue, Wembley from 8pm on Monday 8th January 2018.

Please note we will be in the Main Hall (where we held the Christmas dance) this evening. 

Once again Caroline's Soup Kitchen will be opening up for another evening of culinary delights. To accompany the fare on offer, the programme of dances can be worked out from the following, entirely mythical, list of Christmas presents I received last year.

My Christmas Presents

I was exceedingly fortunate this festive period to receive 20 presents of all shapes and sizes. It was while mulling over these that I realised that if I paired them up I would get a set of clues to dances that would make a super programme for tonight. Can you work out the dances from the presents?


A jar of Christmassy sauce  &  a paperback copy of "The Goldfinch"

A Cranberry Tart - CRANBERRY sauce is a particular favourite at Christmas and Donna TARTT wrote the Goldfinch

A bag of Werthers Originals  &  a bottle of mead

Butterscotch and Honey - Werthers Originals are BUTTERSCOTCH flavoured and Mead is made from HONEY
