Good evening everyone! We’re back in front of the stage for the evening set. It can get a bit chilly, so some of us are wrapped up in our sleeping bags.
We’ve got a theme for this evening – SPACE! And to set us off – Europe, with The Final Countdown!
Winston is taking care of the countdown. I’m sure he’ll do a fine job.
Bernard isn’t sure Winston is quite on top of this countdown business…
Either Winston’s jumped a bit or he’s having the same trouble he has with S
Yeah, it’s the old problem alright.
Never mind Winston, you got there in the end! Well done!
Next up, it’s Sarah Brightman, treating us to her Starship Trooper!
That sparkly catsuit really is quite snug, isn’t it!
Here’s a change of pace. The great Bowie, with Space Odyssey.
This is Ground Control to Major Tom, Take your protein pills and put your helmet on!
Ah, Major Tom, maybe you shouldn’t try and get into the capsule head first?
And here, am I floating in my tin can…. Can you hear me Major Tom?
And as Major Tom floats away, here’s another return act, maestro Elton John, with Rocket Man!
Goodness, he’s even brought real rockets!
Take a bow Elton, that was lovely!
Suddenly, the stage goes dark. Except for…
What’s that light shooting across the sky?!
An alien tripod has landed. And it’s glowing! And the music, it’s from War of the Worlds!!!
Oh, oh! The tripod is bending down, like something is going to come out of it!
What IS it!
An alien! The crowd is astonished and a little bit scared!
But Ofelia knows about travelling a long way from home, and she knows what to do. She asks the Creature if would like something to eat?
No one would have believed in the first years of the twenty first century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences who just wanted a big bowl of paella.
Well, that was an amazing session. As the music ends, it’s time for us to retire to our beds. Matilda is entranced by the fairy lights over the glamping pods.
Night night Nano! Says Microvaark. Nano says he’ll sleep very well after such an exciting day, and quite a lot of icecream!
Ofelia is happy to have helped the alien, but she’ll have to be up early to start another batch of Paella!
Camping is such fun, snuggled up in sleeping bags and bivvy bags. Night night all! We’ll see you for the Sunday session.
