After 20 tiring exams they are finally over! I was so excited after the last one but didn't really know what to do with myself as it felt strange not having to be anywhere or study. I still can't really come to terms with the fact that I have left school and that I have 11 weeks off! That's plenty to time though to gig, write, record and relax!

This weekend we had another festival called The Big Green Gig. The gig was held at the Greenway in Bristol during a 2 week long event that was going on in the area. We were supporting a band called Helele who we were able to stay and watch after our set! Their African rhythms were great fun to listen to and enjoy. Everyone was dancing along and seemed to be having a wonderful time. One man in Helele was playing a very interesting African instrument called a Balafon which is almost like a big xylophone with wooden bowls under it to create the sound. I was glad to see one in action as we had spent two years learning about them in GCSE music!
I have to say that the venue we played at made the most amazing Pizza I have ever eaten! I'm not too sure why it was so great but I must go back there one day even if it's just for the food!:)

So that's all from me for now! What's coming up? Well I'm going to Barn on the Farm in two weeks time with some of my friends from school which we've all been looking forward to ever since last years festival ended. Then the plan is that we are off to Canada to see our family over there. The Seed festival is the day after we get back so if you come along to that I will apologise now if I look exhausted aha!
Have a good week,
