Clifton St Johns Church's much acclaimed Proms in the Paddock was cancelled in July due to torrential rain. It did, however, go ahead on Bank Holiday Saturday when over 350 people braved the elements on yet another very wet evening.
As people queued for the 6.30pm entry, the rain had been falling for some time, and it only got worse!!. However, for those appropriately dressed, everybody it seemed, it was a minor inconvenience, and the picnics went ahead, albeit under a myriad of umbrellas. There was an abundance of good spirit and good humour, and many sported patriotic outfits.
The Clifton and Lightcliffe band were sheltered from the rain, and gave a rousing
performance, including solo items from Mark Crisp, and later, The Thunder and Lightning
Soloist, Rachel Crisp, was once again in great voice, despite the rain falling around
The evening concluded with the traditional Proms finale and an amazing firework display. Then the rain stopped!!!
Under the circumstances, we cannot over-
It surely cannot rain again next year!
