Main concert (thanks to Ele for the photos)
Charles Siem takes his bow after the Mendelssohn violin concerto.
During Les Miserables. It'll probably be a while before you see saxophones in UCPO again.
Phil Howie conducting something or other (anyone??).
The sword fight! During Pirates of the Caribbean, Mark came on stage and challenged Emily for the podium. Some of the orchestra were wearing eye patches. Not sure how they read their music.
Mark forced Ems off the stage, to take the podium for himself (I'm glad it was her and not me).
But in the end, they agreed (uneasily) to share the stage for a bow.
Post-concert party on the Sidgwick site (thanks to Chrissie for the photos)
As you will see, this was the party after the pirates concert. We didn't have far to stagger from West Road.
Alison wasn't too keen on giving back the pirate hat, but it seems that Harriet was determined to have it.
Something possessed Mark to attack everyone that night (must have been that sword fight that fired him up). So one by one, we took him on. I had a go. Harriet has a go.
James has a go. Even Ele had a go. But alas, as always, Mark manages to prevail. So . . .
. . . we all conspired to catch Mark, hold him down . . .
. . . and force-feed him cheap whisky, which for Mark is a fate worse than death.
And here's the first of the human pyramids. But definitely not the last.
