The fancy dress preparations have begun! Local shops shiver in fear as they are terrorised by member of the Nash in search of cardboard, paint and various craft items in readiness for Wednesday night. Our kitchen is currently full of dirty paintbrushes and oddly shaped cardboard and most other kitchens in the university accommodation are too.
The competition is fierce for this year’s difficult theme of Dukas’ ‘La Peri’ – everybody wants the best costume and everyone is fighting for the most original idea.
Unfortunately, the details of our group’s costume are secret and cannot be disclosed on a public forum that other members of the orchestra may see. All will be revealed on Wednesday evening when we are certain that there is no longer any chance of nashers stealing our ideas. Expect an update later next week!
