Thursday 11th February.

As New Years Eve approaches the time feels right to settle into the nearest chair and reflect on the last year.

Saturday 31st October. We’re going to ‘celebrate’ Halloween in a church!

Halloween weekend. West London. Autumn nights closing in but its still mild for the time of year.

The last week of October. 2015. And what a week it turned out to be.

The Convent, Stroud

It was my third trip to The Convent, the unique new music venue and boutique hotel, nestling in the hills of South Woodchester, Gloucs.

And so to the final show. And the big one. This is being filmed by CPBN/PBS. They will be shooting the live performance for broadcast to the nation in 2015.

A relaxed morning around the hotel while Barry Mead drove a few of the crew to an outlet store in search of cheap designer gear.

Thursday was a day off. We picked up our rental cars after breakfast and drove back to Hartford via the Massachussets Turnpike.
