  1. Three days at Blists Hill Victorian Town Saturday 2nd, Sunday 3rd, and Monday 4th June. Sunday saw small crowds due to alot of rain however, Saturday and Monday saw large crowds. We played twice each day as per the event timetable and many times around the town drawing crouds as we did so. We worked with the horses so as not to frighten them and would play wherever the various shows needed a crowd. It was great to meet up with old friends and to make new ones. I was very pleased with the turn out so far from home. We had 9 pipers and 2 drummers. The playing was consistantly awsome to say physical exhasution played its part (so did whiskey in some cases lol)

     

  2. A Festival of Cycling in Thoresby park. Today saw us Piping at Thoresby Park on an overcast and chilly day. This event was organised by "Muddy" Waters and was a spectacular weekend of unicycle and penny farthing racing. I have never seen so many of these machines in one place at one time, it was great. We added some entertainment between races and had the pleasure of playing during the feature event which was a 1 hour penny farthing race. I had the oppertunity of riding a penny farthing but wearing a kilt and them being so tall, I thought discretion is the better part of valour and declined. A good all round event with plenty of stalls and things to do.
