Thread Name: After the Getaway -- 2013
Subject: RE: After the Getaway -- 2013
The Getaway just keeps on getting better year after year. Monday morning came much too fast, as usual, and I, for one, really didn't want to leave!

I'd like to say thank you to all the lovely people who volunteered, or were coerced, into taking part in the Mummers Play and who made it such a success once again. Every year I wonder if we will manage to pull together a cast and every year we do it, sometimes by the skin of the teeth but, somehow, it always seems to work so well. It was nice to have the children take part this year - they added a whole new dimension to the play.
I will say a very special thank you to our St George, who took the part despite having real stage fright and who played it so well.

Thank you to Claire for adding harmony to our piece at the Saturday night concert - it made it even more special for both Kendall and myself. Thanks to John Roberts for learning to play Lorena and playing on stage with Kendall during the Sunday evening concert.

There were so many amazing highlights throughout the whole weekend. Lots of wonderful workshops, too many that couldn't be attended because of clashes (where's that cloning workshop!) and some terrific late night sings. Coming together with old friends and getting to know new ones a little better is part and parcel of any Getaway and so it was again this year.

This year was even more special as Kendall has started performing songs on his own, which, for me, is a real move forward.

All in all, I had a great time.
