Not a gig, but the Willy Russell (I don't know, will he?) musical Blood Brothers tonight at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay. Got my hankies ready.... Roll Eyes

This was booked well before we realised that there's a certain footie match on tonight, so we're going to try and stay away from the score and watch it when we get home. I can predict the outcome tho....  Sad

I saw those dates on the latest SoH email newsletter along with news of a gig they're doing at the Royal Albert Hall on the 10th of April with guests Track Dogs. At the end it says -

"And finally, we will be taking a break in 2023 and there will be no Abbotsbury, but we look forward to returning to the beautiful sub-tropical gardens in 2024."

Don't know if that means a break from other live dates but I see they are joining RT on his Rhine River Cruise next June.

I'm not big on musicals but that is a good one. Have you seen it before?

We saw it many years ago. It's very good.

It’s our 4th time. It was fabulous! My eyes started welling up about 3 minutes in…  Roll Eyes

It was the opening night but I was delighted to see the theatre packed. Great too see people out and about enjoying live music & theatre again 😀

I think "upcoming" can now mean next year  Wink ...   Trad Arrr at Wavendon Stables, Milton Keynes, on 4 March.  When I booked yesterday very few tickets had been sold, so, if you can, please do get booking ... by all accounts it will be well worth it. I'd hate to miss it due to insufficient tickets having been sold, having missed out on last year's attempt to see them due to the band catching covid.

Great event and really nice venue, I worked there as a Gardener in the late 1980's and it was very well organised, and a great atmosphere despite the fact it absolutely pissed it down. I think they get a full set of Lakeman's by getting Seth this year, and probably all of Equation.

Thanks, Brendan....we're very tempted although I'm always surprised to remember how far the South Lakes are from the North!  Gets expensive if we have to factor accommodation in...

I have just booked for myself, Nikki and my parents, so they must have enjoyed it last year too.
