Thread Name: Sidmouth- How was it for you?
Subject: RE: Sidmouth- How was it for you?
Gaffer's contribution to the final Friday Theatre Bar singaround, about bringing culture to the masses in Uruguay with catastrophic consequences, was a bit of a highlight as well. The chorus IIRC goes

God preserve us from trombonists
Who ram explosives up their bells
To bring Tchaikovsky to the masses
And liven up the 1812.

Kevin Sheils made up a song specially as a tribute to the Theatre Bar sessions generally, and McGrath's Marmite song in particular.

I managed to include 20 performers on Monday night, representing at least 11 Monday folk clubs, including Rupert Ray, whom I'd not seen since we were students.
