How it started! Our first every concert, given for an elderly neighbour. It was amazing to be performing after months of lockdown.
Setting up to play for clients at Peggy Dodd Day Care Centre, Bath which supports those with memory loss and their carers. We have been playing here regularly for a few years now, way before Concert On Your Doorstep evolved! The only difference is that we now perform in the garden.
Playing in the car park of a care home in Bath. Some pretty impressive social distancing! Residents listened through open windows.
Last July we teamed up with Curo to bring concerts to their sheltered housing units around Bath. It was a brilliant few days made possible by wonderfully supportive Curo staff.
We wanted to be able to keep going through out the Autumn and started a major fundraising effort to buy ourselves a gazebo. Here we are fundraising at Alice Park Cafe, Bath, performing some classic Motown specially requested by the cafe boss!
The weather we envisaged dealing with!
The lady we played to at this sheltered housing unit in Bath was listening from an open window high above us while we squeezed into the path behind the front wall! She particularly enjoyed our Glenn Miller and South Pacific numbers.
Another beautiful sunny day and a 90th Birthday concert!
Setting up on a crisp early Autumn morning for a day of concerts with Celebrating Age Wiltshire. We performed 13 mini concerts outside doors and windows for rural sheltered housing residents – an amazing experience.
Another Celebrating Age Wiltshire concert – the last in a busy day. All thanks to the great support everyone involved with the charity.
It may look like a cardboard box – but a great day – our gazebo finally arrived! A huge thank you to everyone who donated to our fundraising.
Playing to Bath Townswomen’s Guild – the beginning of our Christmas concert season. The hot water bottle is to keep Rebecca’s recorders warm!
One of our favourite places to perform – a beautiful Georgian court yard in Bath with fabulous acoustics. A lovely audience from St John’s Foundation sheltered housing who braved the cold to listen.
Playing a Christmas concert from out in the garden to residents at sheltered housing in Keynsham.
Our gazebo made a huge difference this Winter – here sheltering us on a blustery day during a Christmas concert we played for a family.
Performing Christmas music at the top of a hill in Bath, for local residents on a sunny Winters afternoon.
All the fairy lights we could manage to stuff into the gazebo – a Christmas live stream concert for Wiltshire Rural Music!
Our final Christmas concert of 2020! A wild, wet and windy day – we tethered the gazebo to the car and sheltered housing residents enjoyed two concerts of festive music, made possible by a generous private donation.
