Concert Success!

I think I speak on behalf of everyone present when I say that our first concert as an 'independent music society' was a success! We had a most enjoyable evening in the warm (and light!) surroundings of Kew College in front of an appreciative audience - a huge thank you to those who ventured out to support us on such a cold and icy evening!

For those of you not able to be there, here's what you missed:

I thought the concert was a triumph! And great photos too, Martin. Have a good Christmas everyone, and see you all next term.

So did I but had to make my comment on the bit of blog about how to get to Kew College, as this wonderful account of the concert wasn't posted by then.
