UK ladies?

Our music festival was at one stage billed by its organisers as "The Cheltenham International Festival of Music". Now, its image is thankfully less grandiose; but we remain a magnet for street musicians from all parts of the globe, it seems. I was thrilled by a brass ensemble playing outside Marks and Spencer one day, and to discover they were members of a touring St Petersburg orchestra, there to eke out their fee. Today, this ukulele trio was making a merry sound, and giving passers by something to smile about.
