Last night at the Proms
« on: August 25, 2020, 20:11 »
We looked into going to the official Last Night and the criterea (sp) is very special.  We used to have our own last night at Osbourne House here on the Island.  If you just had a sandwich box with a cheese and tomato sandwich you were frowned uponed.  Proper tables, table clothes, candelabra,  etc we de rigour.  (We do things  properly here). We loved it, we have our flags, and I'm sorry at the last night of the proms we will be waving our flags, and singing the words (although we don't really know them).  It's a tradition that we all look forward to.

We used to do the same at Petworth House.    Like yourselves done in style, and dressed appropriately.  This year, I shall stand in my sitting room and sing my heart out.   Mrs Bouquet

Sometimes my mind wanders, if found please return.

There always were evenings like that at Leeds Castle, but the autumn one was special, they used to end with the 1812 overture, complete with cannon fire and fireworks to look as if the castle was being attacked. Fantastic entertainment when the weather was dry, not so in the rain  ::)

We've never done the Leeds evenings, but the place is just fantastic for a visit!

We'll be singing the words as loudly as possible, hopefully outside!

Nobody tells us what to sing and not sing...

I had quite forgotten about the Leeds Castle event, we have been to that as well.    It's a fantastic venue.  Mrs B
