'A Bit Of Singing And Dancing' is a collection of short stories by Susan Hill. We read it at school. I still re-read two of the stories: 'Mr Proudham and Mr Sleight' and the one that gave the book it's title. 'A Bit Of Singing And Dancing' was dramatised in an hour-long television programme as part of the 'All For Love' series and can be watched in four parts:
