Baby B!!!

Writing about web page http://www.sunion.warwick.ac.uk/portal/ents/Default.asp?url=event&event_id=2509

Hello All!

I'm dumping stuff at Uni on Friday, and am thinking about a trip to the Union.

So, Baby B, Friday 1st September, 10pm.

See you in Zippy's!

(though if you're around beforehand, it'd be nice to see you earlier!)

End of GBBF, Prom 28 and the GCR

Well, I went to the Thursday and the Saturday of GBBF. Had lots more beer, but by the end I was rather knackered. I met up with a large contingent of past and present Music Centre members, but didn't have too much fun. I think the boredom factor of being at GBBF every day (bar friday) took it's toll.

Speaking of the Friday, I spoke to Ellie and found out she was going to be at the prom that night, and I ended up joining her and her mates watching Prom 28. Even after I had figured out what pieces were going to be played, I still had no idea what to expect! (My classical music knowledge is bordering on nill) I enjoyed it thoroughly, and finally realised I recognised the main melodies in movements 4 and 5 of Symphonie Fantastique. We also bumped into Matt Gilbert who was already down for the Beer Fest the next day.

And now, the GCR. This is the Great Cockrow Railway that my Dad and I went to today.

Basically, my dad grew up next to the Great Western Railway which at the time had steam trains running on them. He has always been interested in steam trains, and we have visited many railways together, and now I enjoy visiting them too.

GCR runs on track that is only 7 1/4 inches apart (7 1/4 gauge railway). So it is a mini railway :) It has about 1 1/2 to 2 miles of track, which is quite long for such a "small" railway, and runs 2 different routes. We had quite good fun, but during our ride on the second route, it started to rain, and then that rain became trorrential :S So a wet end to a good day.

So funny!

I remember hearing their version of "Miss Dynamitee" on Brass/Wind tour summer 2005, and that was even better!

End of Term Update and Wimbledon Tennis

Right. I have been insanely busy, and don't have enough time in the day. So nothing changes.

Week 9 were my last exams. All Evil. As can be seen by my results in a previous entry.
Week 10 was WSAF and Gala Concert. Lots of teching and lots of music, so good fun but very tiring.
Week 11 (Wk 1 of hols) was Brass Band camping tour to Cornwall. Stayed near Bodmin, had some fun.
Week 12 (wk 2) was starting work at my old school as a Caretaker. Not too bad work, enjoy being back, and not completely exhausting (which it definately could be).

2 days ago I played in my local Concert Band (Merton Youth Concert Band) who did their annual gig at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships. For the last few years (5 or more maybe) we have been invited to play on the second Thursday of Wimbledon. Always good fun. Play music until 1–ish, and then get a dy of watching Tennis. For free!!!

Eventually I went to the re–sale ticket queue, where you pay a fiver for tickets to Centre/No. 1 court for seats of people who have left for the day. I got my ticket just for No.1 court just after half past 4 (I had only been queuing since about quarter past.) I then watched 2 and a half mens Over–35's Doubles matches. It was so much fun. They were real entertainers and played some amazing tennis to boot!

I'll find my programme and tell you who I saw later.

Enjoy your summer everyone!

Just to say I cannot function in this weather. It is too hot to do anything. PLEASE get colder ASAP.

DAMN BRITISH SUMMERS!

PS: Good luck to all people who still have exams!

"Young's" is closing!?

Writing about web page http://www.camra.org.uk/page.aspx?o=100354

My local brewery, Young's, has "set up a venture" with Charles Wells brewers. Basically they couldn't sustain themselves so have sold out. But moving production to bedford!? NOOOO!

Their Wandsworth brewing site is the oldest site in Britain where beer has been continuously brewed. To stop now is just so sad. I have grown up in "Young's Country", and to see it leave will upset and annoy so many of the patrons.

I really feel disheartened that one of the things that I associate with home might never be seen there again.

Why did it take so long for me to discover Bitter!?
