Strictly speaking it all started in Sheffield on Friday 6 June. The magnificent maquette for our new Man of Steel, which will tower over the M1 in place of our cooling towers, was on display at Sheffield station.
We steamed down to London and dumped our cases at Jess's lovely flat
Then over to Waterloo St John's church in the sun for the Morley concert
But not before the best burger ever at Byron's with Oli, and a chance meeting with 'Meg' outside the Young Vic, who overheard me telling Oli about Cape Wrath at the Crucible that week.
Thereby ensued a big animated chat about Sheffield's own wonderful Third Angel theatre company and the wonderful Cape Wrath play in a minibus parked in Tudor Square! Bizarre in the middle of London, but if you check out #capewrath on Twitter you'll see how this panned out!
And after our wonderful Mendelssohn fix, we were off to various pubs with the orchestra, instruments and friends with a final toast in the renowned basement Pit Bar under the Old Vic - but alas, no celebrities spotted that day!
And here's a snippet of Fingal's Cave, in homage to the concert, our amazing visit to Staffa in 2012 and the fact Mike had an old '78' record in his family and this was the first piece of classical music he ever heard.
