I had gone to the University of Nottingham students ‘Peace Conference’. Attended by the usual suspects, and a few extra, but really, not enough new faces. I had put in a couple of hours, listening to speeches, but I was getting a backache, so went outside for a walk.

A distant ‘kodo’ style drumming attracted my attention from the Lakeside Arts Centre, on the other side of the grounds. ‘Twas then I realised the so colourful spectacle I was missing!

There was some Chinese classical pieces, the regulation and truly splendid dragon, acrobatics, dance, and a children’s choir. I piece also put together by the Chinese society from Broxtowe College, here in Nottingham.

I wasn’t expecting any of this when I awoke this morning: but I’m going to put myself out, to find more of this culture’s entertainments. A fantastic performance.
