A Festival in a Day

Sep 12, 11 A Festival in a Day

Posted by in Miscellaneous

We’ve been in London this weekend to attend Radio 2’s ‘A Festival in a day’ in Hyde Park … We met up with Julie and stayed in a serviced apartment near Hyde Park. From there we proceeded to ‘do London’ .… Madame Tussauds, the West End show ‘The Lion King’ and finishing off with Radio 2’s live broadcast from Hyde Park on Sunday. The festival was fantastic, although a little damp, but our 2 golf umbrella and 2 smaller umbrellas meant we kept dry under our very own small tented encampment. We got to see some amazing acts like Jooles Holland, Imelda May, Lenny Kravitz, Caro Emerald, James, Blunt, Will Young and Gary Barlow… thankfully the last 2 didn’t spoil the former! … but hey that’s just my opinion I guess …Julie seemed to be pretty hyper about Gary Barlow though … even telephoning TA so she could hear him live over the phone...

Posted by in Cambridge 2011

Time to leave Cambridge again (for now). We’ve all had a great time. We stayed in a CityStay apartment very close to Julies digs. It was a very swanky modern apartment … I think that we’ll be using this type of accommodation...
