A grand spot for the stage to take up its Summer residency!!! Approved by the Queen herself ( although her Corgis just couldn’t get through the hoops quick enough to perform themselves …) , July saw this new weekend event “ The Melodrome Festival “ make both locals and visitors to Lancaster stand to attention and see exactly what quality of royal occasion the stage can produce.
Entry was by donation…and they did…all with open and good hearts.. And we produced 2 days of music in the fine and ancient castle courtyard. The deckchairs came out, the parasols went up , the bar was open and the children danced. Local and regional acts strutted their stuff upon the stage each pulling a combination of old and new audience… a great opportunity to see firm favourites again and discover new acts to enjoy.
Plenty of singing along, plenty of carefree dancing, plenty of smiles and plenty of catching up with friends old and new. The royal red carpet was out for our acts and they did us proud!!
We hope to storm the castle again next year. Lancaster is a lucky city for sure and next time her highness may not be so shy in coming forward. Who knows she may even train her doggies!!
