And so this is Christmas – safely

The band at Cribbs Mall, Christmas 2021
The band in Christmas uniforms.

Well, somehow we made it, despite the imminence of omicron and after a considerable number of LFD tests. We played a two hour set of carols and festive music for the shoppers and happy eaters at the Cribbs Causeway Mall to the West of Bristol this morning. Needless to say, we are somewhat spaced apart compared to our usual playing configuration, and the photo shows one of the rare unmasked moments when we weren’t playing. No, we don’t know what the large cylinder in the front of the picture is, either – we had a couple more around us. Giant Alexa speakers maybe?

If you were there, thank you for the odd smatterings of applause – we hope we made your shopping a more festive occasion. Thanks too to the management team at Cribbs Mall for their help and efforts to enable this to happen. Onwards to our next concert, at St Mary’s Yate, on Sunday the 19th December – a Christmas service with carols and a couple of other pieces of music too.
