Smashing weekend. After the blues (as pictured below) we went to our first bbq of the year. The Saturday night, we stopped in and had some friends over. I lit the fire bin in the back yard – another first for the year. Sunday was the big one for us – Newby Hall. A major operation of set design costume creation, logistics and planning had gone into the day. My part was to run some drum workshops. A marqee was set up full of percussion toys and drums, beaters and shakers etc. I did 4 workshops in total, some were total carnage some were really good. Put a smile on some peoples faces anyway. We’ve not got the figures back yet but we think about 5000 people came through. All the characters were great – a new plot line this year which worked out. After that I went round to a frends house to watch the second innings of England v Australia at the cricket. We lost. Ahh well. Today a lazy day, but of a fry up and then maybe a visit to the pub.
