We nearly had a show!
Our first show should have been on Thursday at the Camp House Inn on the River Severn near Grimley (just north of Worcester). Unfortunately, quite a lot of it was in the River Severn – the garden stage and the access road were flooded. I was coming by boat but stopping wasn’t an option, the rails in the picture to the right of the yellow boat are the back of the mooring stage which is about 3ft out of sight.
We had already decided that the river levels meant that we would have to make the journey to Stourport in one go as the Worcester lock keeper had said that the river would probably close the next day. It was all a bit exciting but we arrived safely – I usually travel alone but was very grateful to have a friend with me for that expedition.
Plans are in hand to book a new date as soon as things dry out a bit and the next four shows are indoors, which means there will be heatwave and everyone will wish they were sitting out in a garden, next to the river (or canal)…
