PercyBysshe Bellowhead New Year's Eve Party (32) RE: Bellowhead New Year's Eve Party 06 Jan 10

I can only echo what others have said and say it was definitely the best NYE bash I have EVER been too (I usually doze off to Jools Holland). I need to go back and do it all again so that I can go to the things I missed, however I feel I got my money's worth from three Bellowhead sets (19th time I've seen them - always a joy!), a couple of Abba ceilidhs (I merely observed, but even that was very enjoyable!) and listening to Tim Fitzhigham talking about his daft projects (rowing up the Thames in a paper boat, and across the Channel in a bath). The fireworks were awesome - although I must admit to being a chicken and watching them from indoors (I was wearing a 1920s bathing belle costume - not the warmest of garments), and snow at midnight too - magical! I'm still floating on air nearly a week later. (and I NEVER say "awesome"!)

According to the schedule (still in my bag), I missed such delights as a silent disco, nautical nonsense with Tim Fitzhigham, an "Old Man's Pub" called the Lobster Pot, Sam Lee's Magpie's Nest at the Lawful Prize Casino, Folk in a Box and Boxer Shorts bingo (the mind boggles!) Spontaneous music sessions were actively encouraged too.

Huge thanks to everyone involved in making it such a memorable evening!

If any of you use Facebook, I've added my photos to the Bellowhead group, and also put a link on the Bellowhead fan page.
