The Mill Hill Music Festival Diary Day 4

Tuesday was day 4 of the Mill Hill Music Festival. It was Opera night at the Trinity Church in Mill Hill. This newly rebuilt venue was a pleasant setting for Opera Up Close, who performed La Boheme. The show sold out weeks ago and an enthusiastic audience turned up. The festival team of Gerry and Dan turned up at noon to start the preparations. A piano was delivered, drapes were erected and a lighting rig installed. We also ran a bar.

My involvement was limited due to other work arrangements, but it was great to see such a fine turnout on a Tuesday night. The show finished around 10pm and the whole caboodle, that had taken all day top put together, was stripped out in an hour and packed into the fleet of vans. Everyone left the hall on a high.

Tonight we have Tina May at the Mill Hill Jazz Club at Mill Hill Golf club. We then move to Allianz Park for the final three days. We have Stewart Curtis K-Groove playing Klezmer music tomorrow, The Bateman Brothers tribute to Louis Armstrong on Friday and on Saturday we have The Polecats with Loaded Dice. The Polecats feature the talents of legendary guitarist Boz Boorer, whilst Loaded Dice feature another legend Mark Harman. It should be a great night !
