James and I were up in Scunthorpe with the RPO last weekend giving them the full Last Night of the Proms treatment. What a crowd! The Baths Hall can’t seat more than a thousand but it sounded like there were 10 times that. 3 encores and then James was booed for finally leaving the stage!
Next week the same team is in Lowestoft. We will be entertaining local school children in the afternoon before giving another Prom concert in the evening. Will I be able to sing Rule Britannia or will I have to rewrite the lyric??
“Rule England, Wales and Northern Island” doesn’t fit the tune. I wear a red, white a blue dress for the finale too. Some members of the orchestra were wondering which bit I would cut off if it’s a Yes vote…
