AT LAST - THE STRAWBERRY FOOLS LIVE
====================================

And finally, having sorrowfully missed the opportunity to play at the "big 40th gig" last year, at last the Fools are getting themselves ready for their first full scale gig(s).

Two shows are planned:

Fri 14 May - Aldermaston Village Hall
Sat 15 May - venue to be confirmed, but somewhere near the Twickenham/Teddington/Feltham area

The first night will be a more relaxed affair, the venue does not have a bar, but allows "bring your own" and there's a pub just down the road.

The second will have some special guests (to be announced) and feature some numbers that won't be played on the previous night.

Ticket prices are likely to be 5 and 7 (or 10 for both nights) to help cover our costs.

Mark the dates in your diary - more info to come shortly.
