This has been an amazing year with some memorable and amazing events including playing at the Wayne Hemingway vintage Preston Guild in both the 1922 event and the Spirit of 42 stunning big top show. We also played at both Bestival and Camp Bestival, Mintfest in Kendal, our yearly pilgrimage to “River Cottage” to play at Hugh’s summer bash, some lovely weddings and to top it all we got married and then three weeks later won this award.
