    Isn't rain the most annoying thing when trying to hold any kind of outdoor event.

    Was playing at Newent today and the event had to be cancelled because the whole town got flooded! We nearly got stuck there unable to get home!

    Although it was raining heavily, we went inside to play for an hour and then we were told the event was cancelled by the fire brigade due to floods and because there was a funfair there was electricity in the water!!

    Luckily I made it out, will try and get some pics loaded on soon!

    Yup... Rain is very very very annoying in ALL contexts.... especially when it floods into the basement and ruins a lotta stuff :(

    Noooooooooooooooooo....rain is fantastic! There is nothing like rain to add a bit of atmosphere to an event! It's very fun to get completely soaked! I have been to proms in the park in London tonight and it was raining lots and lots and there was lightening too! It all added to the sense of occasion! :biggrin:

    aww rain is nice in most contexts... i agree it can spoil a day out sometimes but it depends on the crowd you're with...

    Can you forward the photos? Bet you're looking forward to the next event I ask you to!!! :D

    How about playing at a Lydney Rugby match on Dec 10th? We're pre-match and half-time entertainment (for some perhaps!!!). Should be fun on the mud!

    What is really annoying is when you've spent ages doing your hair, you go out without an umbrella and it rains....you may aswell just turn round and call it a night.:mad:

    Rain doesn't particularly bother me, its only when its blowing a gale that it really bothers me.
