Fantastic night thanks to Wayne Hemingway for telling his experiences and showing us all what is possible. Thanks to Leah and also Nigel for getting the ball rolling it really wouldn't have happened without you. I've just had an email from Claire Bossward at the council saying that there will be another meeting sometime in June. Count me in. Mark Holiday.

    The day after our Museum event the sun was shining and it was almost as if overnight Doncaster was a better place to be. We decided to walk into town for lunch and see Callum and Joey at the Greenhouse (their roasted cauliflower dish is awesome). As we passed Sine FM on Netherhall Road the windows happened to be open and music filled street ..then on to the market and more incidental music from open doors. Wow, this felt good. How about a music festival with a difference? Doncaster Music Trail Live? Walk through the town with a map connecting up with different outdoor live musical genres.. an urban Glastonbury (never actually been!). The trick here is to use some of our forgotten green spaces, unloved playgrounds, intimate corners, quirky unused Victorian balconies and not the obvious locations. Importantly it would make people walk and connect with our streets, our architecture and each other. As Wayne Hemingway pointed out the young 'love to dance'. When did you last see people dancing in the streets of Doncaster? :-)

    A big thank you to everybody that attended the fantastic evening last night. Thank you for your creative contributions and the gorgeous food by The Greenhouse. Thank you to the Council for listening, understanding and supporting us with bringing our ideas to reality. Thank you to our Museum building for being our silent partner in style and creativity, you were the real star! ... and thanks to Wayne for his thought provoking presentation and Leah for representing the younger voices. Looking forward to future conversations, this is just the start to make things happen. Nigel Ps. Please post some pics if you have them.
