Wales Weekend – Llandovery Friday 14th – Sunday 16th September 2018

Our annual visit to Llandovery in Wales took place from Friday 14th – Sunday 16th September.

We stayed at our usual Guest House (Llanerchinda Farm) where we were very well catered for.
The food and hospitality were amazing, as usual. Friday night saw us rehearsing – just checking those introductions and endings.

On Saturday after a hearty breakfast, we headed off to The Welsh Botanic Garden to meet up with The Jumping Fleas from Haverfordwest.
We joined forces to entertain visitors to the cafe. Considering we had never played together before we did a fantastic job – we had lots of applause and compliments.
Our break between sets saw us enjoy a talk about Gin with a little sample once we had finished playing.

Provisional dates for next year are Friday 15th – Sunday 17th September 2019
I will confirm this once I hear from The Welsh Botanic Gardens.
