In a break from the wedding circuit, we had the pleasure of performing at the NSPCC's Childline 30 Ball at the Bristol Hotel last night.
Celebrating 30 years since Childline was first launched, the evening was a huge success - with thousands of pounds raised for a wonderful cause. Being seated on one of the tables, we were treated to a smashing meal and also took in a number of very moving speeches relating to the work of Childline and the NSPCC.
Esther Rantzen (founder of Childline) couldn't make it, but NSPCC supporter Martin Roberts (of "Homes Under The Hammer" fame) was there to run the auction, whilst standup comedian Ian Royce did a great job as MC. And for some real stardust, Maisie Williams (star of that rather popular TV show Game of Thrones) was in attendance.
We started playing around 10.00 and blasted through over an hour an 3/4 of live music, with loads of guests clearly enjoying the party and hitting the dance floor. Our friends from Coombe Lodge had a table, so it was great to see them letting their hair down (as opposed to working extremely hard co-ordinating weddings, which is how we normally see them!).
Well done to Steve's sister Anna Keir for putting together a great event that raised around £20,000!
