Since getting my ticket for the New Yorker's concert, I wondered what it would be like. I didn't have much of an idea and I was intrigued when I arrived at Carlton Methodist Church to find the hall transformed with a glittery curtain at the back of the stage. As I took my place in the audience, I felt certain this was going to be something special. I was right. The New Yorkers were five singers and the all-important sound and lighting technician. They put on a wonderful show. In the first act, they performed music from the musicals finishing with 'New York! New York!' (So now you know why they are called the New Yorkers.) They sang solos, duets and other combinations. I was amazed by the number of costumes everyone had but it was all thought through so that while some were on stage others were getting changed into costumes for the next song.

At the interval we didn't have to move a muscle; we were served with drinks and savoury and sweet snacks in our seats. In between writing up my notes, I had a chance to have a bite to eat but it wasn't long before the second act started.

The second act was themed around Christmas and there were even more costumes including a snowman and Father Christmas on a reindeer. My favourite song was: 'I want a hippopotamus for Christmas' and they even had a hippo on stage (not life-sized). There were a range of pop songs and carols sprinkled with plenty of festive cheer and humour including a 'Morecambe and Wise' style ending.

The concert was very entertaining so I wasn't surprised to hear that Carlton had already had a concert from the New Yorkers but when they heard they did a special Christmas concert, they invited them back. Amid the fun there was a message of peace and goodwill to all something that gave me 'paws' for thought as I headed homewards.

rose on trellis

The Instant Garden The gravel in our garden is great for keeping weeds at bay, but there are places where it can look a little bare. One wall in particular looks rather neglected and forlorn, standing next to its tidy but barren gravel patch. I decided it would be a good spot for a climbing rose — sunny in the morning until the sun goes behind the house later in the day. With help, a trellis...
