Goodness, we could never afford them! do I hear you cry? But don’t worry – we don’t charge a fee to perform, we simply invite you to put as handsome a donation as you can in our Air Ambulance collecting bucket.
The hot news is… All@C just performed our 100th gig (see videos)!! Five and a half years since inception, with more than two of those spent virtually in isolation and playing together only via a small computer screen in the corner. In 2016 just two of the founding group of six knew a very few chords, but the rest simply wanted to try a new hobby… and now we’re being invited to top the bill at the fantastic Kilkhampton Platinum Jubilee fete! The organisers had the sunniest, happiest afternoon for the celebration, which was enjoyed every bit as much as all the jollity for Her Majesty in London. You can get a taste of our version of ‘Runaway’ on the Galleries page.
Now there’s more, much more to come! I’m glad to say that we have an active programme of summer bookings including supporting some of the open air theatre productions at Ebbingford Manor, the Bude Heritage Fair, the Holsworthy Memory Cafe and more. You may even find us on the Bandstand now and then, peering myopically at the words on our reflective device screens if it’s a sunny day! Below is a memory from the winter – remember the winter? – when we braved the terrace outside the hospitable Falcon Hotel, and played with great enthusiasm for absolutely no passers-by, but our own enormous pleasure as usual.
Yet another enjoyable gig in the welcoming Terrace of the Falcon Hotel, Bude
