I recently had a lovely evening performing at Gosford House in Longniddry, East Lothian, where I was booked to sing during dinner at a corporate event.
Gosford House is a majestic neo-classical mansion built in 1800. The family seat of the Charteris family, it has been featured in movies, international brand photo-shoots, and is a much sought-after location for weddings, gala dinners and other events.
Tina at Hello Scotland was in charge of organising the night, and what a great job she did, as there was lots going on throughout the night, with pipers, a private tour of the house, and a sumptuous five-course dinner.
I kept the guests entertained during dinner with a selection of popular jazz and swing songs from throughout the decades.
The audience were a lovely group of Germans who were very appreciative of the music. At the end of the night we all bid farewell outside in the grounds singing Auld Lang Syne together and waving our sparklers in the cool evening air.
What a beautiful end to the night, at a truly magical and historic place.
