Fun packed days

It's the time of the Cheltenham Music Festival and though we are both music people, we neither of us fancied much in the programme this time, except for a conducting masterclass on Sunday, at Pittville Pump Rooms, and a supper concert last night at The Daffodil.


This was particularly interesting, because the Daffodil used to be a cinema, where Mark's Uncle Tobe used to be the projectionist! It's a beautiful art-deco building with the most wonderful architectural details. We heard Claire Martin and Richard Rodney Bennet - smooth, velvety music for a well-fed audience, late on a summer's evening.
