Colchester! Done!

Whewf!  What a night!  We werSimon Blackman, toure very nervous, we thought we were only due to have a handful of people coming and then the lovely Colchester Arts Centre staff told us we’d pre-sold 43 tickets.  We were over the moon!  Thank-you to everyone who came along and supported us and checked us out.  All of our artists gave such a strong performance and we’re very grateful to have such special people involved.  The arts centre is a gorgeous venue with brilliant, helpful staff and we had a lovely, supportive audience so thanks for that Colchester.  It was nervewracking compering but enjoyed it so much.  Great way to kick off the tour!  We got some lovely feedback at the end, one man telling us to keep doing what we’re doing, it’s comments from people like this that DO keep us doing it so thanks.  I’ve got to eat better food on the way though, squidgy horrible sandwiches from the supermarket will not suffice, what is the key to on-tour healthy food please??  I’m trying a packed lunch next time.  I’m going to control my own gut destiny.  Massive thanks to all the artists who performed, Colchester Arts Centre staff, Sundown staff, National Lottery and Arts Council England, but most of all – the audience!  Here’s to Norwich up next…
