Nice. Thanks for the link. Will be seeing Dave and Phil as part of The Mellstock Band at Cecil Sharp House, next week, doing something Christmassy. Should be fun and entertaining.

Sorry, perhaps I should have give some info about it. See below:

 

THE MELLSTOCK BAND

Exuberant music, colourful costumes and period instruments make a MELLSTOCK BAND show an essential Christmas entertainment. With voices, violin, serpent, concertina, clarinet and oboe, they bring to rumbustious life the taverns, dance halls, workhouses and street singers of town and country during Christmas celebrations, as described by two of the greatest writers of the nineteenth-century.

Ta v much - I must try to make it. I'll bring rum, you sort out the bust ious stuff.

If I remember rightly from a Kirkpatrick similar bash at Xmas 3yrs ago, one could bring a picnic and dwinkies and sit on the wooden wall seat which runs right around the main hall?? (And one sometimes discreetly did a concomitant squeeze or too from box sitting in plastic shopping bag - he and Kpatrick family also had a few small breaks...... :rolleyes: )
