A couple of weeks ago, I found that the Mediaeval Baebes were going to be performing in Milton Keynes at The Stables, Wavendon in May. I tried to get tickets, but they were only available to members at that point. The tickets went on sale to the general public today at 10:00. At 10:03, I had purchased tickets 1 & 2 on the second row, so that’s sorted. We haven’t seen the Mediaeval Baebes since the Joust in 2006; we would have seen them in 2007, but the Joust was cancelled due to the flooding. The company behind the Joust went into liquidation and it hasn’t run since. There have been a lot of changes to the lineup and their new album Illumination is being released in May and they will be doing a few dates in support of the release. I’m looking forward to 22nd May.
Also at The Stables are The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. We saw them last year in Aylesbury and they were brilliant, so we knew we had to get tickets again. As they were playing in June, I didn’t check this morning to see if I could book tickets. I was surprised this evening to find the tickets on sale already, and knowing that they will sell out quickly, I have snapped up a pair of front row tickets.
While checking out other acts on at The Stables, we came across The Mandolinquents, who are a quartet of mandolin players. Jo plays the mandolin and one of her tutor books is by Simon Mayer who is in the Mandolinquents. It looks like they will be a good evening as well, so the final set of tickets for tonight. I think we might be the first to order tickets, seats 1 &2 on the front row.
