Last Night of the Proms |

After a stupendous season of 13 promenade concerts, managed to get our hands on enough tickets for the Last Night of the Proms for me, Kiril, Charlotte (my mum), Jock and Elinor to go en masse. Poor Kiril was somewhat bewildered by this unmatched display of British patriotism (this really is the one occasion we bring out ALL of our patriotic songs) but the gourmet picnic and a couple of bottles of wine put everyone in the right mood. (Photos were taken during the lengthy queueing process).

Afterwards, drank the worst, most expensive cocktails in London at Beach Blanket Babylon in Notting Hill - to be avoided if you like alcohol in your drink rather than Ribena.
