Deliaphonic // Thank you

SB2

A huge thank you to all of the artists for an amazing show last night. The hundreds of fans who turned out on a Friday night were treated to great performances from Jerry, Jonny, Robin, Chris, Hannah, Peter and Pete.

Thanks also of course to our partners, The Tin Music and Arts, our hosts at the Cathedral, and to all of the sponsors of the event. And thanks to the many volunteers and contributors that make staging things like this possible.

We are also extremely grateful for the excellent turn out, that helped to make the evening so special. Happy birthday, Delia!

 

We will be posting photos from the show over the next few days. So stay tuned.
