Lark Hill Retirement Village, Clifton, Nottinghams

[Sunday 14th April 2024]

After a very wet end to the winter of 2023/24, we were delighted to visit Lark Hill in sunshine, albeit with a very strong wind. Some of us even managed to sit outside in shelter, a sure sign the spring is on its way, at last.

Our knowledgeable and enthusiastic audience responded to our compere, Eddie Pearson, and his questions such as “What film would you think of if I mentioned Yul Brynner?” and “Can anyone remember Dick Barton?”

Their attention was rewarded by a journey in time and space as we played music from (among other pieces) Cockleshell Heros (Dunn 1955) The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba (Handel, 1749) Irish Tune from County Derry (Collected by Grainger) You’ll Never Walk Alone (Rodgers and Hammerstein 1945) Out of Africa (Barry 1985) and (the question of questions) Is this the Way to Amarillo? (Sedaka and Greenfield 1977.)

As in past years, we thoroughly enjoyed our outing to Lark Hill, where we are sure of the warmest of welcomes and the most appreciative of audiences.  

Further opportunities to hear the band early in 2024 include:

12th May Spring in Abbey Park, Leicester.

30th June Music in Queens Park, Loughborough.

New dates are still being added.
