There's so much going on in Saltaire in the run-up to Christmas! Unlike my daughter, I'm not keeping a tally of how many mince pies I consume (I think she's up to 17 now!) but had I wanted one, there were mince pies and mulled wine for sale in the Half-Moon Café on Tuesday evening - and a Festive Concert with the Hall Royd Brass Band in the Roberts Park bandstand. The snow has all gone now (though it may be back soon) and, despite a light drizzle, it wasn't a cold night so it was quite pleasant standing listening to the music. I'm sure Sir Titus enjoyed it - his statue overlooks the bandstand and his spirit was with us!
PS: For a view of the bandstand when it was unveiled earlier this year, please see here.
