the huge domed interior of the pump room has amazing acoustics for a string quartet. It does pose some challenges for a ceilidh or barn dance with amplification because the resonance, but with careful setting up of the PA equipment and clear enunciation by the caller, it is an amazing venue with plenty of room to tackle any dance. Being adjacent to Pittville Park, it's easy to move out onto the terrace and steps, when is always ample shade for the string quartet.

St John the Evangelist, Elkstone, Glosc. GL53 9PD & Green Dragon Inn, Cockleford, Glosc. GL53 9NW
this is a very small and delightful church dating from 1160. It has an intimacy that had something very special for wedding ceremony. There is room for a string quartet to play towards the rear of the church, though they have to be careful about the setup so as not to block the aisle. The grounds are beautiful trees and flowers in spring. One time when I was playing there with my string quartet, it just been visited by Prince Charles who had left an inscription in the guestbook.

"Wyck Hill House, Burford Road, Stow-on-the-Wold, Gloucestershire, GL54 1HY
a large Cotswold stone hotel of great character, evidently in 50 acres of grounds, though the media grounds are quite intimate and ideal for playing outdoors for a wedding ceremony. I remember once playing with my string quartet when I had to stop as we were drowned out by the red arrows doing a fly past with smoke. The groom was in the air force and some mates phase and arrange them to do a slight detour to appear at the wedding. It's a pity we had been playing there with our ceilidh band, we might have given the red arrows I run for their money regarding sound levels (I've never had a PA system much over halfway, but it would have been interesting to turned up full volume).

"Harrington House, Sherbourne Street, Bourton on the water, Cheltenham, Gloucs" GL54 2BY
Right near the centre of the village, but somehow secluded as well, this is a venue we've played out a number of occasions. One of my main recollections is how delightful and friendly staff are.

Chedworth Village Hall, Fields Road, Chedworth, Gloucestershire, GL54 4NQ
this is the village hall, not the famous Chedworth Roman Villa, but I'm sure that the Romans would have loved to have been at the ceilidh. Did the Romans have ceilidhs and barn dances in their day? I'm sure they had something similar. Being half Italian, I'm sure I've got Roman ceilidh dancing in my blood. Wedding reception The Ringerike 4 piece Ceilidh / Barn Dance Band ref: 4003.3
