The Big Shrewsday Bash

I have just returned from The Shrewsday Jubilee Bash.

And the stars of the party, as always, were the children.

I have included a slideshow so you can catch some of the action; and audio direct from the Shrewsday celebration.

Audioboo is my soundcloud of choice, and editing does not happen there: it’s all effectively as if it were live.

So, if you dare, folow these links to listen to Al, live and unplugged.

For an interview with the children try this link.

For Al’s personal message, try here.

Happy listening.

  1. I am in the midst of listening to Phil and your mother sing, and I am just over the moon that your mother is there and enjoying herself. Please give them all my best, and enjoy this big day.

  2. Here, here for the children of the Shrewsday Jubilee Bash, and their auntie and mum, of course. What a delightful treat to hear these many, many miles away, Kate, made even more so by hearing your mom give a shout out.

    To Miss Maddie, I’m with you, dear girl. I love corgis too!

    1. Maddie was thrilled to hear your message, Penny! Thank you. Technology is so strange: was recording this just a few hours ago and it has travelled to another continent.

    1. And by the way, I can’t even imagine what London must be like with both the Jubilee and, very soon, the Olympics. Rather chaotic, I imagine.

      1. Voices tell us so much about people, don’t they, PT? Lovely to have the luxury of including them.
        And yes: let us hope the organisers of the Olympics are as good as the organisers of the jubilee: we are rather enjoying ourselves and the sense of occasion, I think.

  3. Your family are delightful. Old and young together enjoying themselves and each others company – that is what the true celebration is all about. Couldn’t hear a woof from Macaulay! Big Al lives up to what we all expect of him.

  4. Loved the slide show, the audio clips . . . and the food.

    Now, I’m HUNGRY for a scone with clotted cream and jam. And some nice sharp English cheddar.

    1. I’m not sure he would stand for that, even tempered as he is, Nancy πŸ™‚ I wish you were here. I have loads of home made scones left over, and jam, and cream.

  5. Lovely – you all have wonderful English accents and sound very happy (nice singing too πŸ˜‰ ). Pin the tail on the Corgi was a stroke of genius for a jubilee celebration game – woof!

  6. What fun it was listening to the children and to Big Al. They all made me feel very hungry. “Oh Queen, see you later”. πŸ™‚

  7. This is just pure gold, Kate! I listened to every word and just imagined being an invited guest to your party! I loved hearing all of your voices…it’s so personal. And the children are so delightful, of course. I love this iPhone app, too…I must see if I can figure this out to capture my own little interviews. Thank you for sharing this. These dear ones were part of a big piece of history. They’ll be so glad you recorded it! oxo Debra

    1. I do recommend the app, Debra. It is a fabulous find. It works with or without wireless, so you can use it anywhere. We are all very vocal so its suits us just fine…thank you for attending πŸ™‚ I just wish I could have given you a scone, jam and cream…
