Lots of stormy weather overnight, so the roads are all wet this morning. 18C now with highs of 26C expected. Trying to get dancers to give me flight information is like pulling teeth. I need to organise the man with the mini bus and I am not getting anywhere yet.

Christopher Hampson arrived yesterday afternoon (the BA strike called off thank goodness) straight from the Edinburgh Festival where his company (Scottish Ballet) had huge critical success with a new “Crucible” ballet. It is always great to have Chris with us although since being Artistic and Executive Director of Scottish Ballet his time is not so readily available.

Here are some more pics from the this week from ASH.
