The other is of the Minster in a blizzard. These will look great on our wall! After that, we had lunch at a Sichuan Chinese restaurant that was surprisingly good! Annnnd after that - of course - to the York Picturehouse for the showing of the last Harry Potter movie. So good...so sad...and we pretty much walked out of the theater, turned the corner and walked by what might as well be Hogwarts Castle. What a great place to watch the movie!
|Hogwarts? A castle around the corner? Who knows, I've lost track!|
|The Sixteen in York Minster - Sorry for the awful picture|
So does this make me famous now? I think it does. (Allison's Note: No.)
After the concert, we went to another medieval hall for a dinner:
|People kept telling us we were keeping the group young.|
We kind of thought this would be a large event and everyone would come over from the concert, but there were only about 30 people there. Most of them were "Friends" of the festival (yearly supporters) and just a few others who had bought tickets to the dinner (us). It was basically an ask for more money to support the festival - a little awkward - but it was fun to talk to some of the people we were sitting by. They were all excited about the grant and INCREDIBLY excited by the fact the we "reduced the average age of the room by about half" :-)
We unfortunately leave York tomorrow...when exactly is the next time we came come back to this place??? Christmas husband, Christmas. York Christmas Music Festival.
Off to Oxford to show Andrew around and to see the Bate Early Musical Instrument collection. Everyone at our dinner last night was very excited that we were getting to see the collection.
