- May 17, 2019
Here is my first Blog in ages ! Its a new web site ! and a new way of creating blogs , finding it a little more complicated than my last blog. so wish me luck ! The picture above is dear friends Lisa Lee Reece Campbell and myself on the last night of the the Royal Horse Show Pageant at Windsor with a performance in front of Her Majesty the Queen. Dougie and I have been working on this for the past few months working with Simon Brooks-ward and the HPower group and it is quite an achievement that we produced through Check Events , From creation, booking artists, rehearsals and creating over 4oo costumes and also creating entertainment at the south lawn Band Stand with some fab Acts ! We had a fab bunch of dancers who worked there socks off and great to work with the talented Josh Baker and Bradley Salter again, The show was a success and I applaud Dougie for watching him as I have said before is a masterclass on ‘Thats how you do it ‘ I would like to thank our small team of such talented people who it would not be possible to have produced with out them.. and there friendship and help goes beyond the call of duty Lisa and Reece , even if Reece did feel he became OBER REECE ! the buggy was a god send on such a event .. but from the production management by Reece at Check Events, all the contracts, booking artists etc and Lisa assisting my self and Dougie, Costumes made by Pat Farmer and the Check Events AJ COSTUME STUDIO COSTUME HIRE side we got there !!! So huge thanks to all the Dancers , also The generation dancers 4 of the guys should I say oldies !! Mickey Driver,Ben Langley, The Acro chaps the violinists from Adam at Sternberg Clarke, Robert Meadmore, The Shetland pony team The Pony Club the Quadrille team the House Hold Calvary and Simon Callow. and all at H POWER !.
Last year finished off on a high at the Olympia Horse show, We had a great team of performers for the annual Christmas Finale a lovely bunch of dancers from BIRDS PERFORMING ARTS COLLEGE and was a thrill to work with Valerie Murzak with mirror Ball Ballet, have known Valerie since the ECLIPSE days in Blackpool when she was 9 years old, and to see her now as one of the top international artists is a thrill and very proud of her
The past few months have been busy ones ! I have worked on creating costumes and producing them for Steve Bor of Bor Productions for the MSC CRUISE Lines over 6 production shows and 4 smaller shows with a cast of over 20 ! a lot of travelling up and down the country and a lot of organising and hard work but got there in the End ! Every success to the Bor Team ! Thanks to all that helped me get there !!!
The Generation classes have be fun every Month always great to see them, its amazing how seeing them gives me such joy …

So its been busy with little time to relax .. But have managed to have some lovely friends time, some lovely food … the diet still not going well and work in the garden when I get a chance !
Dougie is incredible as ever goes from strength to strength although him and computers and emails could drive a person crazy … bless him….. indeed !
but thanks to my family who have been always been there, we have been having a trying time with one thing and another bless them all. and hope we hear good news …. .
all my second family the Campbells in the north who do so much for me and give so much support,
they are very kind to me ….
and my friends … who’s love and support get me through … love you dearly….
On top of this have had a spell in hospital, Just when you dont need it just before the Horse show ..
and somehow how I have go through the past weeks … and will continue to do so..
it just changes how you feel …. so that is the quick catch up so far I am sure I have left things out… something will trigger it back in the memory bank !
