Golden Bridge Awards

Sang tonight in Quaglino's at Green Park, central London, for the BLCC Golden Bridge awards, we know about these via the Anglo-Belgian Club - Thanks to Michel Vanhoonacker for inviting us (once again!). Good to have ex-Swingle, soprano (and Belgian) Ann de Renais introducing us...

Just three small bursts of us amidst much celebration of the strength of commerce between Belgium, Luxembourg and the UK. [BLCC = Belgian-Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce].

Quaglino's - very splendid; food delightful, as one would expect... we were all surprised it only opened in 1993; the name feels as if it has been around longer than that!

A game of two halves for the audients; quite pathetic lack of joining in in the "rat da dat da dat" in Chanson d'amour, but rousing "OYs!" in The Lambeth Walk...

I know they are all going to go home and order their Xmas copies of Songs of Cricket... to Vienna tomorrow.
