The 12th  Abbotsbury Summer Concert was blessed by fine weather and another full house.

Our thanks go to them, our great production crew, all the folks at Abbotsbury Tourism for the loan of their back garden to play in and you, the audience, for supporting the event in such numbers again.

"Formidable operators in the roots arena. A class act"
