Driveway Concert
With the Autumn coming on fast I just have 2 dates left before I bring my 3pm Driveway Concerts to a close. Sat 10th & Sun 11th October. I don't charge for this service but instead work on a donation basis. If you are interested then please drop me an e-mail at fionaharrison1@btinternet.com. Following the government guide lines this would ideally suit a street or cul-de-sac where residence can watch me perform in bubble groups of no more than six from their own driveway or gardens. I will be letting these dates go on a first come first served basis and I look forward to hearing from you. When they are gone they are gone! 😉
