We have just left Newby Hall in Yorkshire. It is a gorgeous mansion house and was the backdrop to our set for the first two nights.
Sterts is the first venue we have played which is covered, or is supposed to be covered rather than an emergency run into a church or something!
We are in Queen’s Square in Bristol which is a beautiful park lined with huge trees. The camper van is parked between two big old trees, beyond there are buildings on all sides of the square; sometimes you can hear your voice bouncing back of them.
We are playing the Glasgow University Quad; it’s gorgeous, it’s sort of this old gothic building. We are in the middle of the courtyard. We are just surrounded by this lovely architecture and huge spire.
Belvoir Castle is absolutely beautiful. It's very big and we are performing on the lawn right beside it. The castle is our backdrop, it’s gorgeous.
