Monday 13 December – Carols in London
When 30 Molesiders made it to the Royal Albert Hall for some Christmas music we found ourselves in one or two special positions.
Carefully marshalled by Paul Tiller to reflect the growing concerns about the new Covid variant, the spectacular auditorium found itself with plenty of spare room. Whether those of us who were offered alternatives to our pre-booked seats at the very top of the house actually felt we had been ‘upgraded’ must remain a moot point but it did allow us to compare notes afterwards as to where the best place to be in the house might be. Here we can share the comparative evidence with anyone who might be interested.
Whether we found ourselves sitting with a view from the gods, from the side stalls or even from one of the boxes we were all able to enjoying the singing of the Royal Choral Society, the playing of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the several opportunities for all us to join in with familiar favourites.
What we all did agree about was that we’d had a wonderful evening with an informal meal in the RAH’s Verdi Restaurant to kick things off, followed by a fine programme of Christmas music along with the benefit of having someone else take care of all the transportation.
Thank you Paul for another great Moleside excursion – and to Alan, David, John and Peterfor their revealing photographs
Let’s hope we can all be able to stick closer together again very soon.
