Thank you again to GillJ for organising another wonderful Lime Cake Eating Session (and highly successful concert too) :D

Such a wonderful variety of music and so lovely to see how much progress everyone has made in one year. Thank you to AnnC and sbhoa for allowing me to accompany them for this concert and it was really lovely meet up with old friends! :)

Looking forward to next year - and to a whole lime cake just for me...! :D

Thank you for coming Mr C! Really appreciate you taking time out of daddy duties to join us. I will make a note that we need two lime cakes next time!

Thank you Mr C for accompanying me! I'm already thinking about songs for next year.......

Thank you Gill for organising it - I know how time consuming that is, and all the frustrations that go with it. It's such a wonderfully friendly, supportive afternoon.

And the lime cake - my friend was asking if we could have the recipe - I don't know if we can go another year without it! Although I doubt we would be able to produce such a fine specimen as you do! :notWorthy:

Thank you so much to Mr and Mrs GillJ again for organising today's event in Bristol. The lime cake was superb - consumed with much enthusiasm and pleasure! (The music was good too!) Well done to all who played - thank you, sbhoa! Mr GillJ ended the concert superbly - I hope I didn't spoil the Bristol Music Club floor when I started off the stamping at the end! Lol!

It was another good day. Thanks for being my orchestra Frederic Chopin, it was good to be able to give the Mozart an airing before the festival.

Hi Sylvette, the last few Bristol events I've run have filled up without me needing to put it on the forum. I'm not sure when the next one will be but I shall put you on the list and let you know! Would be great if you could join us!

It's a smaller event than Egham or Stalybridge with a maximum of 20 performers but longer playing time of 8 mins.

Another good day. Thanks FC for being the third in our trio. At least one person appears to be under the impression that we play regularly together. :) 

Good organisation and amazing cake again Gill.
