I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.
The Music Of Bowie
On October 15 2016 Hope Estate presented the music of Bowie with the inaugural Rock Symphony In The Vines.

Clear skies and a full moon set the stage for a great concert and it was easy to get a good position on the grass in full view of the stage. The main show began at sundown and continued until just after ten pm. We were taken on a musical journey through the Bowie years and there was plenty of space and opportunity to rock on. It was truly a 'symphony of rock' and the three vocalists each had their individual take on the songs. Not much can compare to the experience of listening to Life on Mars?, Starman and Space Oddity under the stars.

There were lots of food and drink options with two bar areas and several food stalls. We chose to pre-purchase a picnic hamper that contained water, wine, dessert, disposable plates etc and more than enough food for two in a Hope Estate cooler bag.

The event well organised with good security and a strong police presence. No food and drink were to be brought into the venue and bags were checked at the entrance. Tap water was freely available, there was a coffee truck, ice cream van, ATM, merchandise stall and reasonably priced food and alcohol. The portable toilets were monitored and cleaned regularly.

Various hospitality packages were available that included meals, seating and VIP parking, Some future shows at Hope Estate are Culture Club, Bruce Springsteen and Suzi Quatro.

David Bowie was always one of my favourites - without giving my age away!
