Music and cupcakes


There was music at the dragon-boat festival too. This is a player in the Hall Royd Band, well wrapped up against the cold. They cheered everyone with some lively tunes and it's always good to see the bandstand being used by a brass band. I'm not sure what the instrument is; perhaps a euphonium but I find them hard to tell apart from tubas...

If music is the food of love, cupcakes are the food of treats. There were some pretty ones on offer in the food market. It's a good job I can't eat such things. (I have to stick to gluten-free). I'd probably have ballooned to the size of a small elephant if I could eat cake, as I have quite a sweet tooth.

Bradford is twinned with the town of Hamm in Germany, and there was a team from Hamm in the dragon boat race, cheered on by their city's mayor. They did rather well, coming second. Perhaps in honour of that there was also a stall in the market selling traditional German sausages, which smelled very good.

  1. I have a feeling that it might be a bit too big for a euphonium - nut I am no expert and, who cares - it is the sound and the sight that matters. The sound of a brass band is always good (as is the sight of your pictures)

  4. The trend of great cupcakes is over there as well as over here. They really make some great ones these days. We have a place called Scratch Cupcakery that puts out some great ones.
