Today’s blog is a bit of a cheat as the photos are not mine, they’re Phil’s. He left at lunchtime to drive over to Manchester for a free classical concert at the new BBC studios in Salford. Much of the radio broadcasting, all of the sports, and even some of the TV programming has left London and come up north over the last year, causing much grumbling among those who were comfortably entrenched in London and saw no need to ever leave. Ha – that’ll teach ’em!
I made Phil promise to take photos in exchange for leaving me here holding the fort, so he did. Here they are.

We’ve vowed to go back and see a performance together and, after hearing about this one, I’m really looking forward to it.
