Andre Rieu – In Cinema via Satellite

We went to the Light Cinema in Cambridge to see the 30 years anniversary of his Johann Strauss Orchestra. Andre made a beautiful program this year featuring old and new friends and set against the stunning medieval backdrop of the Vrijthof square in his home town of Maastricht. A thoroughly entertaining evening with some beautiful music performed by his popular orchestra.  And of course his special guest: David Hasselhoff!!!

ADC Theatre – Dogfight

Went to see “Dogfight” last night as the ADC Theatre. An award winning musical set in San Francisco in 1963. One final night of partying, debauchery and trouble awaits a group of young Marines in San Francisco on the eve of their deployment to Vietnam. But when Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets Rose, a shy and idealistic waitress, and uses her to win a cruel bet with his fellow recruits, he ends up learning an important lesson about life, compassion and the true nature of beauty. An enjoyable evening with good acting let down by some weak singing performances.

Cinema – The Beguiled

Went to the cinema last night and saw “The Beguiled”. An enjoyable film set during the American civil war where a group of women at a girls’ school take in and care for an injured union soldier. Soon, sexual tensions lead to dangerous rivalries as the women tend to his wounded leg while offering him comfort and companionship. Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman and Kirsten Dunst star. It is a remake of the 1971 Clint Eastwood film.

Punting

We went punting on Sunday morning when the weather was beautiful and the river Cam very quiet. We punted from the Mill Pond to Jesus lock’s. Took us about an hour but you can see that there were very few on the river.

G-BXSR

Just been advised that it is not economical to repair G-BXSR and as such it will be written off. A pity as she was lovely to fly. Just have to start looking for a replacement now.

Damage was a lot more extensive than initially thought and they cannot repair in Fowlmere. Hence they will need to remove the wings, propeller and engine.Then move to another company and replace the whole tail section. And then put is all back together again.
