Watch this site for more information as planning progresses for our biennial water based spectacular!
This year's picnic is on the 9th July and follows an excellent elegant picnic in 2015 as as a fundraiser for the biennial regatta. The 2015 picnic was in the grounds of South Hill, Sonning, by kind permission of Andrew Barker and Marjie Thorne (mainly agreed by Marjie!). The weather was great and a lot of fun was had with friends sharing plenty of food, drink and good music.
Music was provided by the Django Swing Quintet performing two sets and a special performance between the band's break with Davie McGirr of Seven Songs performing in aid of the Alzheimer's Society.
Davie (pictured below) is a skilled musician and vocalist and has recently been on BBC Radio! More details here: http://sevensongs.org/
