Friday night was a nice chilled out set to start the weekend at the Royal Hotel, it was unusually quite but still a lovely warm crowd. Many use the Royal as a place to be fed and watered before heading off home after a busy week. It is always a lovely relaxed atmosphere and if you haven't yet been in on a Friday tea time 5-7pm I would recommend you give it try, it will either be me or one of another three that will be singing for you. Saturday saw me return to the National, there was a group of men that really were up for it and were dancing pretty much from the word go. They continued along with others to make it a really top night and we will be returning back in a couple of months. Thankfully my voice held out again although it was quite painful.
