Abbeyfest 2005

Well Abbeyfest 2005 kicked off for another year yesterday with a free concert by Hamish Stuart Band on the bandstand.

It was strange to go to such a social gig with the 7/7 explosions still echoing, but I felt that drinking lager, eating pizza and listening to jazz was exactly the kind of blameless fun that the bombers would rob us of if they ever triumphed and so it was important to kick back and relax for the evening even if only to affirm that we are free to do it.
