Andrew, dressed up in his kilt at the champagne reception.

The room they held the reception in, on the 6th floor of the Cafe Royal near Picadilly Circus on Regent Street.

The four of us together, ready for the big night.

Later on, waiting for dinner. From left to right, Michael, Melissa, Friedel and Andrew.

Melissa, after a few glasses of wine!

Each table had a pumpkin to carve and this was our artist with the finished product.

Friedel smiles for the camera.


Everyone stands up to welcome Great Big Sea!

The party begins.....

The gathering was fairly small, so we could get very close to the band, fantastic!






One surprise of the evening was seeing astronaut Julie Payette.


She was returning a CD to Great Big Sea that went with her and her team up in the space shuttle.
