After an early wake-up, despite not having a concert all day, the day one member of the band had waited for for her whole life had arrived; her 18th birthday.Emily on flugel celebrates her birthday on tour every year, and what better way to start her day than with a cold shower and one of Derek’s special walks!

With the whole band in tow, some of which were still in their pyjamas, he took us down to the church in the village where we have a concert later in the week. As with Derek though, it was not quite the simple 7 minute walk (according to google maps) that it was meant to be.

We arrived back to a cooked breakfast and then spent the rest of the morning chilling, playing rounders and other games.

We even managed to get Steve involved in a massive game of cards against humanity, though it didn’t last very long (wonder why….).

At 2pm we had a roast chicken dinner and then set off for our evening concert in Mold.

The band played a great concert to an appreciative audience in a lovely church.

Some of the band decided to play a few board games whilst assessments were taking place 🎲

Particular highlights included Gabriels Oboe, Under the Boardwalk by Leanne, and it was a great first outing for Daya in The Holy Well.

After what felt like a long day, we got back to our accomodation and enjoyed some birthday cake, hot chocolate and biscuits before going to bed.
