    Grand Designs House of the Year 2021

    The Earthshot Prize

    We really enjoyed watching the Earthshot Prize last night and were fascinated by the amazing eco-talent around the world.  Congratulations to Prince William and Sir David Attenborough for creating such a forward thinking and potentially world-changing prize.

     

    For those unaware of what the Earthshot Prize is and does, here's some copy from their website, www.earthshotprize.org

     

    "The Earthshot Prize is the most prestigious global environment prize in history, designed to incentivise change and help repair our planet over the next ten years.

    The Prize aims to turn the current pessimism surrounding environmental issues into optimism, by highlighting the ability of human ingenuity to bring about change, and inspiring collective action.

    INSPIRING
    EARTHSHOTS

    Taking inspiration from President John F. Kennedy’s Moonshot which united millions of people around an organising goal to put man on the moon and catalysed the development of new technology in the 1960s, The Earthshot Prize is centred around five ‘Earthshots’ – simple but ambitious goals for our planet which if achieved by 2030 will improve life for us all, for generations to come."

    The 'All New' Ed Sheeran!

    It's 6 years since Teddy loaned his 'Green T' guitar to Ed Sheeran and watching Ed perform at the Global Citizen concert last night in Paris it is evident his new found approach to clean living suits him very well, not just in how good he looks but, also his energy on stage.

     

    Great performance Ed and all the best for your upcoming tour!

    Albion Barn & Fields

    Today, We visited Albion Barn and Fields on the outskirts of Oxford to view their current sculpture exhibition.

     

    We were particularly captivated by the superb curation of works within the beautiful rural landscape and grounds.

     

    We highly recommend a visit before the event close later this month.

    Congratulations to Arlo Parks on winning the 2021 Mercury Music Prize.  We remeber seeing you on the Graham Norton Show and knew you would be on the rise!

     

    We also particularly enjoyed the performances by Wolf Alice and Celeste

     

    PS, 'TUT TUT' to the young women who were sitting with their backs to Arlo Parks during her final performance... that's just rude

    After way too long without any live music, Teddy has had his first band practice with a local blues / rock n roll band... let's see where this could lead!

     

    "I've played guitar in bands since I was a teenager and the feeling you get from the relationship between musicians in the moment is quite euphoric... I wish I could do it for a living!"
