It’s the morning after the night before, but there’s no headaches here! We’re up and smiling with the memories of last night’s gig!
We had the best weather of the summer so far to welcome you, all with a sunset you’d have paid for itself and from then on in, the night flew by. We couldn’t believe how generous you all were and yet how relaxed and enjoyable the evening was. You all dressed up and let your hair down and there was no spectre at the feast, just fun and thoughtfulness. It was just what we needed and such a boost to our system!
We can’t thank you enough for your support. We raised lots of money on the night but we haven’t managed to count it all yet. You have no idea how much it means to us. We’d like to thank you all for coming and we’d like to thank the people who made it all go so smoothly.
Thank you to the Barge themselves and the Galley staff for producing such lovely food and keeping us all comfortable with our Pimms. Thank you to all the performers for giving their time and being so brilliant. Thank you to Sean for doing the door all night and thank you to Valerie, Brian and Linda for their time and organisational skills. And thank you to everyone else who gave time on the night to help out. We couldn’t have done it without you!
We’ll be letting you know how much money you helped us raise, but in the meantime we’re having day or two off before we come back to with news of what’s happening next!
It’s here! It’s happening! It’s the day of our gig on the Belfast Barge! We could hardly sleep last night for excitement. It felt like Christmas Eve last night with the anticipation! But the big day is here and we are so looking forward to seeing you all…
It’s a chance to meet so many of the people who have supported us this far, get dressed up, have a wee dance and let our hair down for an evening. We want it to be fun and enjoyable rather than sombre and hushed. So get your dancing shoes on and get ready to have a good time!
It’s on a barge, there’s bands, there’s amazing ballot prizes and there’s cheese. What more could you want on a night out? And because we love you, we’ve made sure there are a few tickets available on the door tonight in case people want to come last minute. We can’t guarantee they’ll last long so come early to avoid disappointment and we can only accept cash on the night!
So get your dancing shoes on and we’ll see you from 6.30pm onwards! It’s going to be brilliant!
