Today we saw Phil (a friend) perform at the Hard Rock Cafe at Surfers Paradise. He was singing and playing guitar with another guy. They were playing Sound Garden (and related music). It was lovely.
Last weekend we went to Hever Castle to watch the jousting. The castle was really impressive - more like a fortified house - but full of interesting antiques.
The jousting was cool - quite theatrical. The sword and axe fighting was staged and a bit corny.
Last night we went to the British Library to see an event called "Sounds of the Sky". It was fun being in the British Library and seeing some of the rooms, but the event wasn't that great. The first part involved lying on our backs in a big room while various audio recordings played through some speakers overhead. The audio tracks - mainly interviews - were good, but the sound itself was a bit muddy and neither Helen nor I could make out some of the dialog.
