The Big Big Weekend

King Alfred

The new BBT discs are out today. So let’s celebrate!

Alison Henderson reports over at PROG on her amazing BBT initiative, The Big Big Weekend. A small sample:

Strolling down to the River Itchen – another central feature of Winchester From St Giles’ Hill – and arriving at the statue of King Alfred, Greg gave an impromptu talk on why Alfred was a such great monarch. The finale, the ascent of St Giles’ Hill, proved steeper than many anticipated, but the vista from the top across the whole city was probably the tour’s defining moment.

Sounds like a fantastic weekend!

I say: let the prog pilgrimages continue!

Nice work, Alison:

Following the Big Big Weekend, Andy Poole had this to say: “This was an inspired piece of top quality derring-do by Alison to organise and host this event in Winchester, her home city and the lyrical seat of several BBT tunes. It was no surprise that the folk who joined us were thoroughly good company and keen to soak up and explore the historical and visual wealth of the city … and then enjoy a jolly good ruby!”
