It was definitely Queen Elizabeth Hall but that is side-by-side with The Festival Hall and they are both part of the Southbank Centre so virtually the same place

Fantastic. I like the song, but it now has unfortunate associations with a person of disinterest, so to speak.  Lips Sealed

Seems as though they've made the whole gig 'fre to view' (donation to Streets of London requested)

Sorry to hear that, Chris.  You missed a treat.  Essentially, the evening was a procession of very fine guitarists/singer-songwriters, each of whom played a couple of numbers with Wizz (Steve Tilston, Ralph McTell, John Smith, Edwina Hayes, Clive Carroll, Pete Berryman and a couple of others, along with Simeon and Alfie Jones).  The music was pretty varied, covering all of Wizz influences – folk, blues, jazz.  A couple of things have been posted on Youtube.  Here is Clive Carroll’s take on ‘Goodbye Pork Pie Hat’ - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFDTiddUe6s  The Wizzfest tag does not help much, as there appears to be a very different kind of festival with the same name.

There was plenty of good-natured banter between the performers with, obviously, a lot of affection for Wizz.  It all went pretty smoothly, apart from an ‘it’s behind you’ moment when a huge cake was brought on at the back of the stage, but as there was nowhere to put it, the two young women who were carrying it looked confused and took it away again, without any of the performers noticing.

Not really an essential gig for Ralph fans.  Given the number of performers, he was only there for a couple of numbers and led the finale {Ghost Riders in the Sky}.  Wizz did a Pete Atkin song as his encore.

It’s quite a while since I’ve seen a solo Ralph gig, but I see he is doing a pre-festival gig at Sidmouth, so hopefully I can catch him there.
