I love outdoor concerts in the summer where we can take a picnic and be entertained on a 'warm' evening.
Last year when we went to the New Forest I checked in advance for anything suitable and found in Lyndhurst, a lovely little town in the Forest, there was to be a 3 day FREE Music Festival. Brilliant we thought.
We arrived at our holiday cottage and immediately prepared a scrummy picnic with chilled wine to take to said concert.
On arriving in Lyndhurst we were surprised that there was no one in the grounds of the Council Offices (where we had seen a show a couple of years previously). On asking a local she confirmed there was NO 3 Day Festival - shock horror.
Back at the cottage I checked on the Internet if I had got the wrong dates and I hadn't and Louis Prima Junior and his Band were appearing at Lyndhurst. However the advert did not say it was Lyndhurst a few hundred miles west of New York !!!
My DH did say that when I said, just before the hols, that I thought it was a long way for the South American Band to come and perform in the NF, it did ring a few alarm bells, but of course he said nothing.
Have you ever been a plonker ?
