Pretty in the pink – my birthday at Bare Arts

My 34th birthday celebrations at Bare Arts: enjoying good tunes, good ales and great company in Todmorden’s finest licensed outlet. My mate Tim and I are sharing the laptop to DJ in this shot. I’m quite impressed I was able to shoot this after enjoying the delights of the beer selection for so many hours 🙂

The Britannia Coco-Nut Dancers at Bare Arts, Todmorden

The Britannia Coco-Nut Dancers at Bare Arts, Todmorden

From deepest Pennine Lancashire comes the extraordinary troupe that is ‘The Britannia Coco-Nut Dancers’. They resemble a curious mix of greek soldiers in national dress, crossed with coal miners; and they dance, sing and entertain with marvellous gusto. I really didn’t know quite what to expect until I saw them in the flesh: however their folk sounds, infectious humour, consummate agility and capacity to put away fine ales won me over. You can read more about them here.

Look carefully. Yes, there really are four of them in the photo. Carl, celebrating his ascension to the venerable age of 28, decided to make a circuit of the table in Bare Arts, fuelled by the biere du jour. Many happy returns Carlos!

Christmas Carols at Bare Arts

Pre-Christmas carol singing, December 2007

Enjoying a slightly boozy sing-song on a Sunday afternoon. Possibly the most enjoyable carol singing I’ve ever taken part in … “The Twelve Days of Christmas – audience participation version” was so funny I had face-ache until the next day. Happy Christmas!
