OK not 10,000 but the story would be so much more fun it it was. We’re taking a break now until Tuesday dear readers. Remember to have a bad Thursday but a good Friday, make sure the Easter Bunny brings you lots of (free range) eggs and we leave you for the long weekend with news that the lovely Natalie Merchant is back and touring the UK in July in some equally as lovely venues including the Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh, the King’s Hall in Ilkley and er, that’s it for halls with royal connections. Full list of dates below along with Merchant doing one of those lovely little NPR desk concerts. Have a good Easter break whatever you’re doing.
