Dog and Crook Brambridge - shut when supposed to be open

Our post-concert wind-down was at the Dog and Crook Brambridge
Its website says it closes at 11pm on weekdays.
Here it is at 10:28 - the owners were in bed - we saw them turn the upstairs lights out...

The Hare and the Bear

Another concert, another dressing room!
Here we are at Kinson, playing for Dorset Guitar Society on March 1st
And inspired by the 2013 John Lewis Christmas advert (The Hare and The Bear), we present our tribute - the Rabbit and the Koala

Kings Arms near Kinson

Better luck with the wind-down at the Pub too, compared to last month's concert! Here we are at The Kings Arms, in a cosy corner that the flash had trouble lighting up!
