Allemansrätten, or the Right of Public Access, is one of the unique joys of Sweden. It allows anyone to roam freely in the countryside, swim and travel by boat in someone else’s waters and pick mushrooms and berries in the forest.

Raising lots of lovely wonga for Cancer Research UK & the Nottingham City Hospital Special Care Baby Unit!

The Beeston Big Band played two gigs last autumn to help raise money for some very worthy causes.
On the 28th September 2012 we "Struck Up The Band" at the United Reformed Church in Sherwood, Nottingham & helped them raise some much needed cash for the Nottingham City Hospital Special Care Baby Unit.
Here's a picture from our rehearsal & sound check the night before in the church,

On the 2nd November 2012 I became promoter as well as band leader! For quite some time I had wanted to raise some money for Cancer Research UK - a charity that does so much.
Well as they say pictures speak a thousand words,

& with the help of this fantastic bunch of musicians & singers, everyone at the Sherwood United Reformed Church, everyone who bought tickets & my lovely wife who sold tickets on the door & helped with the teas we raised a whopping £530.14!
