Listen very carefully, I shall only say this once. There are some secrets and mysteries surrounding Middlesex Freemasons which have just recently come to light.
However, it is a delight to share this one.
Our very own Worshipful Brother Paul Huggins APGM recently took part in a musical adaptation of ‘Allo ‘Allo at Hampstead Garden Suburb at the end of November.
‘Allo ‘Allo was an extremely popular comedy television series set in Nazi occupied France which ran from 1982 to 1992.
Once again using his musical talents, W. Bro Paul played the part of dastardly Herr Flick of the Gestapo.
The show was devised, written and produced by Francoise Pierre-Geller a professional musician who also sang a couple of Edith Piaf songs.
She used the characters from the television series ‘Allo ‘Allo to sing in 1940s period costume numbers taken from a variety of sources.
Paul Huggins sang “The Galloping Major” and the connection to Herr Otto Flick is slightly tenuous.
Many of the singers live in Hampstead Garden Suburb, and have, or have retired from, a variety of day jobs; indeed the role of René was acted by the Chief Executive of the Supreme Court.
The cast had good fun as, indeed, did the audience, and the proceeds of a raffle were donated to MacMillan Cancer Support.
So the next time you see a leather clad character with a black homburg heading towards your Masonic Centre it may be W. Bro Paul, but make sure you see the Chain first before letting him in.
