Gig Art and an Impressive Raffle, by Char

We travelled up north to a very picturesque village near Leek Staffordshire, Horton Village Hall, lovely people, lovely gig, punctuated by wonderful artists in the audience...

James Yates with his brilliant interpretations of our name and logo - what a talented young man!

 

and coincidentally, Joe Curtis has visually represented two of the stories currently being told as part of our Origins Tour shows. The 1st is a Wenlock Hare caught in some car headlights...

and the 2nd is his take on Tam Lin, with a tortoise called 'Janet' at the crossroads with the hell bound procession approaching - you can't knock him for not listening, and 10 out of 10 for interpretation and visualisation Mr Curtis:

Thank you to both James and Joe, you made us giggle and the artwork is fab :)

The following night on Sunday evening, we played at St Peter's Church in Chelmarsh to help raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. Again, the night was made by lovely people, but it also featured the best raffle prize we have ever come across- 2 tickets to see 'Jersey Boys' in London's West End. This took us by surprise for two reasons, firstly we were sitting opposite the table where the raffle prizes were displayed and it had the usual range of bottled alcohol and Liquorice Allsorts, no mention of this mega prize, and secondly, most of the raffles we have encountered have nothing like this calibre of prize, our favourite instance being a catering sized roll of aluminium foil (which we didn't win either!)
