Handcross Minstrels concert programme

This is the programme of the Handcross Minstrels concert which took place on Friday, 9th February 1940. It is interesting to note how attitudes have changed from the days when it was acceptable to use the extended name of the troupe.
The profits from the show went towards the Polish Relief Fund as the country could not feed its population due to the foreign annexation of much of its fertile agricultural land.
