Stage 33a sees the Beacon travel from a joint celebration between Bristol Fashion, Fascinating Rhythm and Avon Harmony and Cleve Harmony in Bishop’s Cleeve, Gloucestershire to a handover between Second City Sound and Mountain Harmony in the West Midlands.
Here’s what Second City Sound said about their time with the Beacon of Harmony:
Second City Sound hand over the Beacon of Harmony to Mountain Harmony of Mold.
There may have been a small contingent from both but wow what a really nice afternoon we had with Heather from Mountain Harmony at Bantock House Museum where a World War II event was in full flow; Giving us a taste of the roaring forties Bantock House was home to groups of re-enactors offering a glimpse of life during the Second World War; many aspects of wartime life were on show.
Bantock House were so impressed with our excuse for meeting there that they asked the compere Martin Barry to enlighten to audience about the Beacon of Harmony and then took part in the handover followed by the closing songs of the WW2 event. We didn’t sing our rehearsed song but joined in with audience participation singing songs of the era such as ‘We’ll Meet Again,’ ‘Run Rabbit Run,’
By absolute coincidence Martin Barry lived in Mold and said he could have taken the Beacon himself but Heather was having none of it!
Second City Sound held their Autumn Show ‘In the Spotlight’ on Saturday 3 September and gathered in the bar to celebrate having the Beacon of Harmony before passing it on.
Thank you Second City Sound!
