Berkshire Bedlam at Sidmouth 2000

Well, the waiting was over, practice time had run out, we'd removed the stains from Rob's breeches for the umpteenth time - it was time to show the unsuspecting and largely uncaring world what we could do ....

Our opening spot - Saturday morning at the flagraising ceremony, performing 'Coconuts'

The first test - can we get round each other without falling off the stage?

The final test - can most of us remember to face outwards at the end?


Saturday lunchtime, outside the Anchor - getting into it now .....


Saturday afternoon - our first Arena Show

Do you think they were all there just there to watch us ??


Sunday morning procession, followed by the sea-front ....
