    My neighbour, Terry and I were up by 4am last Saturday, leaving Lilleshall, Shropshire, in plenty of time to get to Borough Theatre, Abergavenny. We knew that we wouldn’t necessarily get in for the Saturday Live show so were prepared to queue. We drove from darkness into dawn and by 7am we were ensconced, coffees in hand, on a well-placed bench before the grand theatre building wondering where everyone else was! A little later we greeted the Rev Richard Coles and J P Devlin as they arrived.and Richard took our photo. Later, in the growing queue, people came and showed us the picture on Twitter! The show was so enjoyable and J P included us, asking us about our early departure.
    After the show we enjoyed walking around lovely Abergavenny enjoying some of the delicious products from the market stalls and visiting the many lovely shops. A great day and worth the early rise.
    Later I caught the Newport Music Coach to Birmingham Symphony Hall to a performance of Beethoven’s 6th and 7th symphoniengs arriving home by 11pm. So, a tiring day but worth it!
