Upper Octave and Summer Party return to Old Buckenham

Back by popular request
Last night was an evening when you had to decide which event you attended.  
The blog editor, being of somewhat mature age, went along to All Saints Church to listen to a concert performed by Upper Octave. This group of six singers were back for a fourth time and entertained with an eclectic mixture of music, some classical and some some from a wide range of musicals. There was Phantom of the Opera to start with and Oklahoma some two hours later. In between there was a song from Spamalot, the Cats Chorus and other operatic delights.
Glasses of wine and lots of homemade refreshments were available at the half-way interval.
The inside of the church was specially lit for the occasion which was very effective (but made taking photographs a bit hit or miss).

Meanwhile just half a mile north there was a second Summer Party going on at the Village Hall. This had been organised by the Old Buckenham 2000 Trust following on from a similar event a couple of years ago. The average age of those attending appeared to be several years younger than those being entertained in the church.
The village hall was decorated up for the occasion and the near perfect weather meant that everyone could all sit outside for their 'gourmet street food' (as shown in the photograph that has been 'stolen' from the Old Buckenham 365 project site as the blog editor could not manage to be in two places at once).

It is understood that the partying went on late into the night but many were back at the hall this morning doing all the necessary clearing up.
