Bandstand Marathon


Amazingly, the weather was warm and dry for the first weekend of the Saltaire Festival. People flocked to Roberts Park, where there was enough going on to satisfy all comers. As well as lots of activities for children (see also yesterday), there was a cricket match (one of the last of the season, I guess) and a 'Bandstand Marathon' of music. I arrived quite late in the day but in time to hear most of the set from this local blues player, Gerry Cooper. Really nice music to relax to and there were lots of people enjoying it, many with quite elaborate picnics, having obviously prepared well for a lazy Sunday in the park.

  1. Could tat only have been a few days ago. We were up in the Dales and the weekend and the weather was indeed lovely. And now it is like the middle of winter again. At least your picture reminds me of the brief, brief summer.

  2. Sunshine, and blues in the park. Does it get any better?

  3. The Saltaire bandstand looks to be impressive. I love outdoor summer concerts. They are almost finished here until next year, even though our weather has been perfect.
