Dancing to the Darkness

This Saturday saw the School PTA Barbecue.  It was our first school event, so we hadn't a clue what it would be like.  I thought we would just turn up and a be given a burger and parents would stand around and chat.


A wonderful mini festival took place!

There was masses of bunting, delicious sausages, corn on the cob, a multitude of salads, beer by the keg, cool kids taking over the fort and live music.

Hot air balloon fly bys (well this happens everyday in Bristol).

Between the live acts on stage, they played extremely loud (yes I am old) music, which the kids went crazy too.  My boys loved it when they played The Darkness 'I believe in a thing called love'.  Moves I have never seen before!

Whilst the children danced, played with glo sticks and hang out with their friends, we 'grown ups' got terribly drunk on real ale from the brewers over the road (as local as you like!), and was able to actually chat! Yes, I know!  Those of you who have young kids will understand this bit!

Yes, there was stage diving and pushing in the mosh pit, but hey it was just kids yeah!

A thoroughly brilliant night!  Bring on more school events!

Hurray for school!
