This is Sting in 2009 with Kathryn Tickell (and more) playing "I saw three ships coming sailing in" at Durham Cathedral in 2009.
I was lucky enough to spend a marvellous week in Durham this summer brushing up my Latin at the JACT Summer School plus, as a bonus, the weather was fantastic. If you can - I do recommend going to the JACT Classics Summer School - such marvellous fun for young and old. Everybody is very friendly and approachable.
Whilst there I also got to see the magical The Lindisfarne Gospels at the exhibition near to the Cathedral. I vaguely remembered visiting the Cathedral in my childhood and it was great to renew the acquaintance. If you can visit the Cathedral - it is well worth it - it is absolutely stunning. The Lindisfarne Gospels' exhibition was very enjoyable and interesting too.
It has been a good year for us at the Four Wynds' B&B...there's been super, super weather during the main season. Our guests, as ever, have been good fun. I've done some more work with Hands-on-Latin with the teaching and touring and very much look forward to doing more in 2014!
And so.....We wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
Auguri! Best wishes,
Catherine, Nigel and Family xx xx
