Re: London July 17

Hi, zippa - I agree with Midnight Choir - that the tube was bearable. I am a very slow walker and I managed ok. It took me under an hour to get to the Strand in London (1 tube change and 1 bus).

Re: London July 17

... a p.s. .... I would also like to add that I was impressed by the sound at the 02 - I am an aged hippy who used to rail against the 02 as a political albatross. All power to the sound engineers. The music felt very warm. and to Bela - glad you were there to share the evening. for me, that concert...

Re: London July 17

firstly, to thank Padma (and Harry) for arranging the meet-up before the concert. Wonderful! And lovely to meet new faces - Lizzie, Susan (from Sweden), the woman from Cornwall whose name I can't spell, and Jarkko to whom I never thanked outrageously for all the fabulous Forum work. now - the concer...

Re: London, 02 Arena, July 17

Bela - Hi! I used to be "Annie from Scotland" when we conversed weeks ago, anticipating seeing Leonard at the O2 (I changed my name to A.Sukitu to be 'less pretentious' ... ). I have hurt my ankle and am walking with a stick and am meeting up at the Trafalfar Tavern in Greenwich in the afternoon - w...

Re: GREAT britain, SMALL concerts -

Re: Glastonbury (June 29)

In HELLO magazine No 1029 15 July 08 pg 81, Cerys Matthews: My Glastonbury Diary :
