It was a Super, Sunny February Sunday, perfect for the Brighton Half Marathon lycra clad masses who filled the St.George’s after their exertions. A little lighter on Almanac regulars than usual which only seemed to spur us all on even Further, with a most soignee & wry guest set from the ever wondrous Mr England & a virtually uncharted Battle of previously unplayed Almanac songs from Chris & I. Gorrgeous to see JamesEmylen, Bentley & newbro Beaulieu, their friend Nicole & her boy Alfie, the ever scurrilous Andrew & RussellBecky & Jake & Ben, Huw & Francisco, a breathless & fresh from Manc Jo, Chris’ friends Agnes, Tom, Barney & Frances, a super enthused John & his pals & all looked after by Lucy, Alex & all dem lovelies at the St. Georges.
