Despite an overcast day, there was a tremendous turnout of people attending the fair and it’s various stalls. Morris dancers also entertained (thankfully far enough away so our music didn’t clash!) We played a variety of pieces with the crowd applauding most the RAF March Past and Viva Italia medley. I couldn’t tell if anyone joined in on the YMCA or sang along with Tequila as I was concentrating on playing!
Our two sets were at 12:30-13:30, 14:30-15:30 in front of the war memorial. Some ex-band members were a pleasant sight in the audience and band members’ families enjoyed the afternoon too.
Notes for next time:
- The National Trust car park, even with diligent car park attendants, had a queue almost back to the A350 before 12:00 so try to head over earlier if posssible.
- Lacock Church itself is a great source of tea, coffee and generous portions of cake – all for a good cause.
