Much time has passed; but I must write again…
We have been having a splendid time performing at celebrations and parties… firstly an Anglo-Swedish wedding – at least, the reception in a glorious pub in Dulwich Village. All the music was organised by our friend Sofie Haag, and we were delighted to be part of such a happy occasion.
Continuing the friendship of nations theme, having sung for the Anglo-Belgian Club [or ABC] we then went to a subsequent Anglo-Belgian birthday party in Yorkshire, with a wonderful array of food available… Hog Roast, Paella & conviviality all round! Perfect for the Anglo-Belgian outfit, The London Quartet - Cantabile!
The next party was at the amazing and utterly spectacular Eastnor Castle
This place really does have to be seen to be believed, more mediaeval weapons and armour than I have seen ever on the walls, and battlements straight out of King Arthur... and yes, it is all fake, although the land has been an estate for the Somers Cox family for centuries, the building you see now is only 19th-century and has seen no warfare! Further brilliantly restored post-WWII.
We sang for a small and select group who were going to shoot things the next day... not us luckily... I could not possibly divulge any names of guests... sorry!
Next day, it was off early to Belgium... and beyond!
