Sunday 20th April
Things we learned today:-
You should never name your children after cocktails. Daiquiri is NOT a person’s name! I hate to think what his sister is called.
You can eat a packed lunch in the Science museum.
The street where baby prince George was introduced to the world is fairly grim. More commoner than royalty for sure.
It being in the same area as tonight’s concert, we decided to re-visit the Science museum after many years. We spent most of the day quite happily mooching about and managing to learn a thing or two.
A quick meal, we went for an English in the Goat Tavern – excellent food and good beer selection.
Then onto the Royal Albert Hall for the reason for this whole trip. Graham’s 60th birthday treat was Bellowhead’s 10th birthday concert. An extra treat was Maddy Prior joining them for a couple of songs. A novelty was a group of four girls dancing Morris on stage at appropriate times. As ever, an excellent concert. Happy birthday Bellowhead, 10 more years please?
which was great until we found that all of the security gates through the tower blocks to the basin were locked so we had to walk back to Paddington station and enter via St. Mary’s hospital. Bah Humbug!
