Piccolo – with the mayor!

Despite the quinquennial works that are still in progress inside St John’s November’s Piccolo event went ahead almost as planned; the only change being that we held the event at the front of the church, where lunchtime and evening concerts take place, instead of in the café area. This month we had two special guests: the mayor and mayoress. When they arrived they told us they would probably only stay for half an hour or so, but they enjoyed the music so much that they stayed until the end, and they even joined in with some of the children when members of the audience were invited to choose a percussion instrument to accompany the final piece in the programme – the “Wallace and Gromit” theme by Julian Nott.

You can see a small album of photographs of the day on the Piccolo facebook page.
