- Show of Hands are streaming a show live from the openair Minack Theatre in Cornwall on Friday 24 April at 7.30pm. I’m sure this will help us get over our disappointment at the postponement of their wonderful day at Abbotsbury for 2020 (now rescheduled to 3 July 2021),

Music and the arts are so vital to us all at the strange and worrying time. Enjoy the shows and please do what you can to support the artists and the venues.
Stay safe and take care.
