Last concert done! Yet another great event & crowd. All very emotional tonight - the last performance of the 50th Anniverary HCYB & the 'last ever' performance of 17 much loved & respected members.
My thanks to the whole HCYB staff and adult team - this tour has been an absolute thrill & privilege.

    The blog has been wonderful to follow. What an incredible experience for everyone involved. Dan's texts have been quite emotional. Loved every minute. Thank you so much for all the adults supporting the tour and your families back home who have given you passes to participate. Enjoy the rest of the summer.
