Kitchen Garden: postponed
« : 12.09.22 at 21:42 »

Further to my reply to Diane's post in another thread, this is to let you all know that next Monday's appearance at the Kitchen Garden in south Birmingham's Kings Heath district has regrettably been cancelled.

Pete and the venue's management agreed that after a day devoted to the state funeral of HM Queen Elizabeth II, not many would be in the mood to turn off the box and to go out for an evening of song and merriment. Apparently their calendar is pretty full at the moment, but a new date has been fixed, for Sunday 19th February next year, and Pete has been told the venue will give those already ticketed the choice of whether to transfer their bookings to the new date or accept a refund. At this time I can't be sure whether this will be handled through the venue or the ticket agency (wegottickets.com), but Kitchen Garden can be reached at 0121 443 4725, email <info@kitchengardencafe.co.uk>.
Meanwhile, Pete's next public appearance will be at London's The Pheasantry on the first of October, now less than three weeks away.

My gigs list is never all that long these, so I think I can consider myself to have been a bit unlucky at the number of postponements these past few months, each one for an individually good reason. Nevertheless, the older I get, the more I worry when it does happen.  However, I think the decision to defer tomorrow's gig at the Kitchen Garden Cafe in Kings Heath was unquestionably the right one for several reasons, each of them individually good.   It seems a long time to wait until February 19th next year, but it's such a good place to play that I'm grateful to have it in the diary   I'm told that very few - perhaps hardly any? - ticket-holders have asked for a refund, so I'll be all the more pleased to see you all then, with perhaps a few more besides.
I did have a bit of a turn yesterday when I heard that there's to be another rail strike on Saturday 1st October, fearing that my first solo outing at the Pheasantry might be in danger, but with a bit of luck I'll be able to do my travelling on the Friday and the Sunday and hope that those of you who've been planning to come will not be prevented from joining me there.   Performing without the incomparable assistance of Simon Wallace on piano is an undeniable disappointment - for you and for me - but I'll be doing my best to turn it into a positive opportunity by adding a few collectors' items into the mix.  (Requests welcome as always, of course - sendiong me a DM here is probably the easiest way to get them through.)
