'The Yeomen of the Guard' was the show that year.  The cost of the tickets for the Dinner Dance, if you read carefully, was Two Shillings (10p) for members and Half a crown (12 1/2p) for non members.

1921  - a page from 'The Mikado' Programme

At this time the society gave its profits to the Torbay Hospital.  This page from the programme shows a picture of the hospital which was then situated in the building now known as 'Castle Chambers' in Upper Union Street, (above Castle Circus between the Courthouse and the Bowling Alley).

Another page in the programme tells us that the profits from programme sales for the previous years' production of 'The Gondoliers' increased the donation to the Hospital by 'over £20' !!!
