Sorry that this is such a dark photo, but it is taken at night! We are carol singing, dressed in Victorian costume to celebrate the start of the Christmas season for our local retailers. There were a group of about 12 of us, and we did three sets of carols, standing outside the Wheatsheaf pub. I felt very Dickensian!! Fortunately, it was a beautiful night-- very calm and still and actually quite warm (for November, at any rate.) I was grateful for that, as my hat wants to go flying at the slightest puff of wind.
Naturally we had a few drinks between sets. You have to lubricate the vocal chords.
