Today, and to my great joy, I had the pleasure of going to Ickenham to play at the Gala day of their 2012 Festival.
Marching down the road, playing my lovely Baritone horn in the company of some fabulous musicians was great – although I suspect I was a bit of a let down given that the two people either side of me are professional marchers given their day jobs in the military bands!
Ickenham is a place I have never been to before and it was a great surprise to see how nice it was. Well done for organising such a great festival – you deserve all the credit you can get.
The rain kept off (mostly) and there were periods of sun (which for this summer is amazing). Thanks to Yiewsley and West Drayton Band for inviting me along – it is always a pleasure.
