Happy Easter everybody! Last night we were in Durham which is such a gorgeous city! We had some time to explore before the gig, so went round the Cathedral and wow, it was stunning!! Loads of music going on in the streets too and heard the choir practicing for the Easter service. Met a whole load of lovely people at the gig and managed to avoid getting lost in the rabbit warren that makes up the backstage area. Then today we drove through the Yorkshire Dales in the sunshine to get to Skipton and I've never seen countryside like it - it's easy to take England for granted, but it's so beautiful. Tonight we're at The Mart Theatre in Skipton, which doubles up as a livestock auction house and music venue - why not?! Tomorrow will be a big day as Red & Gold will finally be out officially! Can't wait to share it with you all :-) I hope you've had just the right amount of chocolate and aren't feeling too sick - I'm saving mine til after the show xxx
Thanks to everyone who came out to the Fishpond on a dreary evening - it was anything but dreary inside! Really cool venue and a lovely town. Also, I can honestly say that I've never seen so many fish and chip shops on one street! Tonight we're in Durham and actually I'm about to go on, so I'd better go! xx
Runcorn was fab - great to put some faces to Facebook names! Spooky lighting, fantastic sound in there and a full auditorium :-)
Chatted to lots of enthusiastic people during the interval at The Met in Bury (and one crazy guy who difficult to please, but ah well, you can't win'em all). That day I busked in the sunshine on the High St and even got a bit of a sunglasses tan. Also unwittingly got filmed by Sky News as intro for the leader's debate yesterday evening. Apparently I was shown on TV for about 5 seconds - did any of you spot me in my bakerboy hat?
Tonight we're at The Fishpond in Matlock Bath. Drove through the Derby Dale's stunning countryside on the way here, passed Chatsworth House too and the beautiful deer park. On to Durham tomorrow. Hope you're all enjoying the Easter break :-)
