Fiddle Orchestra Trip
With the inclement weather it was decided that, unlike last year, where we spent the day in Nottingham we would just go to the show/meal. Leaving the coach we made our way down the main street where there was a cosmopolitan feel to the restaurants and bars. We made our choice and entered Red Hot World Buffet Restaurant which provided a variety of dishes from around the world on a eat as much as you like basis. Indian, Chinese, Mongolian, Italian, Jamaican and our good old fashion fish and chips, all cooked while you wait. This was followed by numerous flavours of ice cream, gateaux’s and fruit, finishing with marshmallow dipped in the Chocolate Fountain. With so much to eat we almost forgot the time and had to make a hasty retreat to the theatre. On arriving we were greeted outside to the sounds of the pipes and drums. Entering the auditorium it was obvious that the show was as popular and ever within minutes the accomplished group of musicians had us hand clapping, and toe tapping to the music. Dancers and singers followed and It seemed in no time the show was drawing to a close and the highlight of the evening was the rendition of
Highland Cathedral by the Scottish Fiddle Orchestra accompanied, by the Pipes and Drums of the Nottingham Police Pipe Band and the dancers and singers, a fitting way to end a very enjoyable evening.
