Again Belmont came up to the mark when we participated in the Watford Live event in Watford High Street on Saturday 14th June. The Pump House in association with Watford Live, set up gazebos, sound systems, posters and leaflets, with a circle of deckchairs to create a unique open air theatre scene in the heart of Watford’s’ main shopping street.
The weather was not helpful or co-operative with 2 huge downpours that kept the shoppers on the move. Caught everybody out.Thankfully when we appeared at 2.00 in the afternoon the sun shone. We followed the Pump House Youth Theatre who were great and were enthusiastically received. They had lots of fans there. The audience loved them. We had a half hour slot, starting with Graham and his guitar, strumming his way through 3 numbers followed by Bill giving us “Albert and the Lion”. I watched the audience who loved it. Dawn really attracted the crowd with her 2 belly dance routines. She looked fabulous and received a brilliant applause at the end. Judi completed our slot with a very moving rendition of “As Long As He Needs Me” from Oliver. A difficult number with no musical acompliment. Well done Judi. A real trouper.
Congratulations to the Pump House organisation for coming up trumps in association with Watford Live for putting together a great day to promote the theatre.
We did ourselves proud by being there and supporting Hazel and her team.
Thanks to everybody who came along to fly the Belmont flag.
