3000 Runners set off for the annual Medway Mile starting and finishing at the historic Rochester Castle. This year had a special Brazilian Carnival theme as part of the build up to the Olympic games to be held there in 2016. A band of 20 played in the grounds of the castle welcoming the runners back from their circuit and playing again after their zumba warm down session !
Very impressed with all the Lions supporters who braved the driving rain and watched the show from hastily erected gazebos. We huddled inside against the ancient wood panelling until the last minute!

The end to a long day, we played at Tonbridge castle to a brave few that turned out in the wind and the rain. They all sheltered under small marquees whilst we braved the elements. Masala was interesting on damp grass as we skidded about, but what a great event, I just hope the rest of the music lined up after us kept the atmosphere alive.
