Not Your Average Garden Party @The HighField

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Watching the weather forecast all week, I wondered if the garden party would be wonderful or a wash out.

Summer is a little hit and miss at the moment in the UK – you can’t leave the house without taking both umbrella and sunglasses. However, fortune smiled upon us and sent some sunshine between the clouds.

The High Field is a gastro pub that always delivers fabulous food in a friendly and stylish setting (click here if you’d like to read about my previous experience). And I was excited to attend their garden party especially when I heard that The Glamophones were performing.

We sat by the fire pit and relaxed with a beverage of the alcoholic kind…

There was a selection of games to play…

We even had time for a card trick or two…

…and finally enjoyed the ladies performance of 40’s classics and modern pop songs all sung with beautiful harmonies in their unique vintage style.

It was a fabulous afternoon full of good company, great food and glamorous gals.

Here’s to a Summer of more of the same (fingers crossed!).

Tell me – what’s your idea of a great garden party? Who would you invite – real or imaginary; alive or dead?

  1. I have come to the conclusion that British summers are now of the rain sodden type. Here in the north west anyway. But I’m more concerned about the winters-my favourite season. We’ve hardly had any snow the last few years in Manchester. I’ve told my wife if we get none this year we are moving further north. “Good luck” she said.
