Perhaps we can begin this topic by asking for information of locations where Organs will be playing this Christmas.

Lady Margaret will be playing at the Plym Valley Railway for the next 3 Sundays for the mince pie specials. Do come down and enjoy a great day out. Now with extra percussion, sounding even better.

:snowman I took the organ to the Bramall Hall (near Stockport, Cheshire) 'Christmas Cracker' event yesterday and the weather was very appropriate, although a bit of a pain for travelling and having a tendancy to melt and soak everything!

Hi Ben.

I think that it was snowing pretty much everywhere yesterday!

I have put a little video together: http://www.dsvc.co.uk/video/bramallxmas09.wmv


All the best

Great stuff Dave. I think the last Picture of the Hall at night time will make a Good Christmas card. :y:

Happy Christmas
George.

Dave
Your photographs are superb.
Not wishing to take anything away from you as a photographer, what camera do you use?

Arthur

Hi George and Arthur.

Thanks for your comments.

I use a Canon EOS 400D with a recently purchased Tamron 'Superzoom' 18mm - 270mm lens.

I also take 'arty' pictures as well!
