I know that the band have put in many hours rehearsing for the competition in Villena on the 7th April. However, performing in concert to an audience is the ultimate test and the best preparation.
Our band have already played their programme in a concert on the 3rd March. This is a reciprocal concert in Bigastro.
Unfortunately, Pam and I were in Manchester for the last concert. You can be sure we will not miss this one.

The old building will become a multipurpose space with a capacity of up to 2,800 people. The new complex will be host shows, have garden areas, a cafeteria, public baths and an exhibition hall. What it will not do is stage bullfights.
The works will last seven months at an estimated cost of 400,000 Euros. Of the 7,500 m2, 5,095 m2 will be paved and landscaped.

He's also came across a poster of the time when the Atlantics played at Morecambe Pier with Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac as top of the bill. Chris was not with them then.
PS Chris is on the left in the first photo.
And below with two of the other bands Chris played with, The Hobos and The John Evan Band which later became Jethro Tull.
