Il Vesuvio celebrated three birthdays along with her Majesty at their music night last Thursday.
Festivities for a special birthday were happening here in Tunbridge Wells as well as in London last Thursday. We discovered three birthdays amongst diners during the Italian restaurant’s monthly Belle ragazze music night, causing the whole restaurant to break into song for the birthday boys and girls, and of course Queen Elizabeth. We sometimes have one birthday in our audience, but to have three birthday parties on this night in particular was a very happy coincidence: We had prepared God save the queen, but as there were so many birthdays present we thought that a joint Happy birthday was more appropriate! It was a really wonderful atmosphere.
Il Vesuvio has been hosting the music night along with my duo Lyrae for over a year now. We offer a selection of easy listening classical, pop, songs from the musicals and jazz standards.
The next evening is 19th May. Tickets are £5 per head and under 12s listen for free. For more details see www.jennifermaslin.co.uk or to book call 01892 534420.
