SHH Hollywood Party Night at Speen Festival 23 - Saturday 2nd September. This was going to be the first weekend of Speen Festival 2023. It was a Hollywood themed evening with music from popular films and a short quiz. In early August it was decided to not go ahead as there would be lots of people still away on holiday. There had been a fantastic evening in early September at the 2021 Speen Festival, however that year because of Covid19 lots of people were still not able to have a holiday and an evening at the SHH Party through the ages was very welcome.
