Saturday 18th December 2021 - Bishop Wilton Wold G/TW-004, Normanby Top G/TW-005 & Bardon Hill G/CE-004
Gig: Simon Faulkner Band
Venue: Bistro Live!, Nottingham
After Normanby Top G/TW-005, I drove further south and beyond Nottingham where I was gigging! That’s the problem with the East of England - you need to travel “out of your way” to reach the summits!
It was dark when I parked on Dauphine Close, Coalville, so this would be a headtorch-lit walk. The visibility was further inhibited by thick fog, but at least the steeper parts of the route were not as slippery as previous encounters! This one was an easy VHF handheld qualification.
The gig was in a sweaty, unventilated basement room, packed full of inebriated seasonal revellers. It seems I managed to avoid contracting another bout of Covid-19 from this gig - though I did get pinged through the NHS Covid app!
