"I was at a curry last night for a relative’s birthday and was talking to a guy who’d seen you for the first time recently – a performance in St Barts church where you joined with Clacton Concert Orchestra? He loved it, and will now be making a special trip to Brightlingsea to catch you guys at the Festival on Sunday 2nd August!"
