Argh! Getting the final pieces in place for the 5th Birthday weekend, hoping that I haven't missed any loose ends and also not forgetting that Steeleye Span are performing tomorrow night!
Today I've had a brief meeting with other colleagues working on the weekend to make sure that all of the artists have dressing rooms when they need them, and also that there are enough Artist Liaison team members around to police the event. Sunday especially will be BUSY with the sold out Kathryn Tickell's Surprise Party featuring the man himself, Sting.
And then I've been confirming timings and set ups for some of the concerts such as the Fiddle Family Concerts on Sunday at 11am and 2pm in the Northern Rock Foundation Hall. This is a great concert which premiered at Fiddles on Fire in April and it shows a troubled composer writing a piece for string quartet. It was really fun to see and I hope will manage to inspire the next set of young musicians.
Still tickets left for Andy Sheppard's Five Sided Dream on Saturday night in Hall Two, this I think might well prove to be the highlight concert of the birthday weekend!
I can't wait!
