A return visit to the splendid small town in Germany, Pirmasens...
Once again bringing Christmas cheer to people in the new Arts Centre there.
Three nights there... and lovely it was. We were looked after splendidly - hotel, food on tap etc - & people were very kind, even when we mentioned Brexit (tho' some sniggered!)
Delightful to be joined on the last night by German agent Peter Martin Jacob & his husband, Sasha...
Here is the Town Hall Advent calendar - a glorious European tradition:-
In the bottom left-hand corner you can also see the top of the wonderful crepe stall, which served me the excellent After-Eight Crepe (hyphen is their addition) - glory!
Then it was north to Hamminkeln for a concert in a church - with such a fantastic acoustic... marvellous it was... A lovely Festive atmosphere, with two great friends, Carole & Birgit in the audience, along with newer friend Stefan.
Organisation terrific and attentive.
Hotel was also terrific, tho' we had to leave it very early - getting up at 6.25AM... probably normal to many of you, but pretty dawn-ish for me!
Now we prepare for our Christmas concerts in Belgium... home on Christmas Eve!
