One last time, Gary Brooker MBE will be presenting a round-up of his most illustrious musical contacts, for a fine evening of music: and all for charity.
"It will be the usual Wintershall set-up,’ Gary told BtP by telephone. 'No Stiletto Shoes (the Christmas 2010 line-up) with augmented brass in the form of Nick Pentelow on sax and trumpeter Matt Winch. The same backing vocals as at Wintershall before. It seems like an age-old veterans’ association line-up: and it's certainly 'Last Chance to See' (I'm quoting Douglas Adams) this particular group of stars, in this lovely setting.'

The whole event is in aid of Heart and Stroke Trust Endeavour (HASTE). The Band du Lac will perform alongside special guests (some playing with their own bands, some guesting with the core band):
Danielle de Niese
Kenney Jones and his Gang
Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir
... with other guest stars to be announced
Gates open at 4 pm, and music starts at 5pm. 'The will be Huge Fireworks at midnight,' Gary promises.

The Wintershall Estate –click here for directions – in the heart of the Surrey countryside is privately owned and comprises parkland and a quality organic lamb and beef farm. It is also the home of the theatrical productions of The Life of Christ, The Acts of the Apostles and The Wintershall Nativity play. Peter and Ann Hutley have lived at Wintershall for nearly fity years and under their stewardship the estate has expanded into a haven for wildlife, mature woodland and farmland.
