A Worcester Source of Vintage Inspiration
Last weekend I had the pleasure of singing at The Vintage Wedding Fayre in Worcester. Organised by the utterly splendid Hayley Turner, the venue was the Guildhall in the heart of the city.
The fayre was spread over two floors of the magnificent eighteenth-century building. I was upstairs in the Assembly Room which no lesser personage than King George III, on a visit to the Guildhall in 1788, pronounced “a handsome gallery”. I think George was being a little ungenerous in his praise – the Assembly Room is, frankly, stunning.
The ceiling of the Assembly Room is something of a hidden gem as the room is not ordinarily open to the public, but the painted plasterwork is really something to behold.
The room provided the perfect setting for me to serenade visitors to the wedding fayre with songs from my extensive repertoire of vintage songs.
The next Vintage Wedding Fayre is in Gloucester on October 20th and I will be singing there all day too.
