Garden Party

It might not quite technically make it into Nosey in Newtown's geographical domain (although it is the Enmore side of Stanmore!), but the Quiet Enjoyment Garden Party must be mentioned for being such a wonderful idea.


Anywhere that accepts cake in lieu of payment is already a hit in my books. I made dark chocolate petits moelleux, excited by my first opportunity to gain entry to an event thanks to baking.


The hosts of the event have a giant, leafy backyard, which filled with lovely people watching lovely bands, including The Desks.


There was punch, and planes overhead, and parents of the performers mingling with youngsters. It was all so darned civilised and communal and sunny, and made me wonder why anyone would ever want to see a band in a horrible smoky pub. It warms my cockles that there are cake-loving people in my neighbourhood who organise such things.

It warms my cockles too. Then I remember that it's not my neighbourhood anymore. Still a bit warm tho.

Well, wish no longer! Because I believe there's another Garden Party on Sunday the 25th of March, featuring The Desks and Pikelet, once again at Eliza's place! I'll post further info when it comes to hand.

PS. Thanks for all the comments, Suzy!
