This could be heaven or this could be hell..

Musings on modern life, the 70's – with music.

Sunday Almanac – August 2017

Almanac’s return to the St.Georges after a 3 month hiatus & the departure of a much missed Daisy & Rich was always going to be a tad.. emotional but in the hands of our new landlord Rhys, his new team (glowing reviews All Round & for the food especially) & on a blazing Bank Holiday Sunday it was excellent to be back in our musical corner. Wonderful to see SallieMichaelJoe, a returning & gloriously Ever Balletic MatthewJane (back! Back! BACK!), Chris & JamesGemma & Nathan‘s 1st Almanac with Craig & PaulHuwDavidMichelle, Mr & Mrs Barden‘s 1st joint Almanac, old regulars but new Natives Emylen, James & their friend Burhan, Charlotte, Ron, Elizabeth & Wendy who’d walked *All the way* from Lewes, Mickey, NathanielMaria& Christian, my Aunt Pauline, Jane & Mike, BenGemma, Georgie & Finn & their beard stroking spoons, Trisha & Phillip, our ever Glowing Considines Catherine, Doougs & a supremely ..choreographical Mark, ah- it was Ace. ACE.
