Show Biz Quiz 2024

The very popular TATS annual showbiz quiz took place in Turvey Village Hall on 26th January.


Eleven teams fought a fierce contest



But someone had to win… and this year it was ‘The Clangers’ (Turvey bellringers). Many congratulations to them.


It takes a lot of work to stage these evenings, so many thanks to our quiz masters, David and John, and to the rest of the TATS team who supported in a variety of roles, this time off stage!



We even got the chance for the whole hall to sing a special 79th happy birthday to our wonderful ex chairman Rosemary, who also captained her team, ‘Rosemary’s Babies’, to the ‘runners up’ spot in the contest.



Finally… We would like to thank all our competitors for making the effort to support us and making it so enjoyable, and we look forward to seeing you all again at our future shows and events.


Monday 4th December 2023

The TATS 2023 AGM took place on Monday 4th December at Turvey Village Hall at 1930.

A great time was had by all and following the formal side of the meeting a very good attendance enjoyed mulled wine, soft drinks, mince pies and off course the obligatory catch up conversations.

A special mention to Joint Chairman Rosemary Gentry, who after many years of sterling service stood down from the new Committee and in recognition of her significant contributions to the society over the years, was awarded an honorary membership.

Over 30 people attended (including most of the Oklahoma newcomers), and we even needed a vote as there were so many volunteers to the Committee.

We even signed up some new members.

A great success and here’s to 2023.

OKLAHOMA – It’s a wrap!

November 2022

Tickets being sold out weeks before the first performance give some idea of the audience anticipation for this show and they weren’t disappointed!

Superbly directed by Jan Clemens and brilliantly acted by a large cast, many new to the TATS stage, the audiences were enthralled by the set and high standards of both acting and singing, fabulously supported by the live band and professional sound and lighting.

As usual there are also many unsung heroes behind the scenes of these productions so a massive thank you from all at TATS for all help received to enable this show to be a great success.
