On Sunday 18th November 2018 a large group of us went to the Swan to hear the RPO play music byVerdi, Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky and what a wonderful concert it was! We were treated to a free pre-concert talk before the concert and the place was heaving – couldn’t get to the bar without a severe struggle! We did manage to buy an ice cream in the interval at £4.00 a tub! A lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon and for those of us who went on the “little green bus” Peter Johnson was as ever an excellent and thoughtful driver.
On Monday 3rd December 2018 we went to an evening “live” cinema showing in Aylesbury of the Royal Ballet dancing “The Nutcracker.” The performance was so good I felt I could have sat through it and watched it again. It was beamed all round the world. Before the show and during the interval we had Darcy Bussell explaining and talking us through the roles and watching rehearsals and talking to the two leaders. Altogether a wonderful evening and again “the little green bus” came up trumps with another lovely driver Tim who was helpful and considerate.
