[Picture of the kids at concert Hall]Last year we took the kids to the Royal Convert Hall to see “wacky” percussionists Owen Gunnell and Olly Cox with Nicola Benedetti in “Let It Snow!“, and today at 3pm we saw them again — in “Heroes versus Villains” Children’s Classic Concerts at the concert hall again. How appropriate; tonight we’re off to see one of Daddy Dave’s musical heroes in concert.

To be honest, it was a wee bit old for our two as the music (played brilliantly by the orchestra) was from movies and TV show they don’t really know — Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Batman, and the like… although DP did know the Spiderman theme!

Anyway, it was a bit of fun, and they behaved really well — poor DP dozed off just before the end, and just after we all banged blown-up paper bags during the 1812 Overture!  We had to carry him out to go home!

It’s weird; these two know dozens of films — Toy Story, 101 Dalmatians, even things like Jungle Book and Dumbo. They love Calimero, Popeye, Scooby-Doo and Bugs Bunny. But they don’t know Dr Who or Peter Pan.  On the way in, Daddy Dave spotted the Ghostbusters car… but the kids don’t know that film yet!
