The weather and the setting was just perfect as Porlock hosted an outdoor concert last Saturday.

The Evening of Summer Song, on the theme of Unity and Healing, saw The Pleasure Dome Theatre Company team up with Friends in Harmony to provide an enjoyable evening for villagers and visitors.

Porlock Recreation Ground provided a beautiful backdrop to the event and the audience brought picnics and plenty of wine and refreshments to stay cool.

Concert-goers were treated to songs by Handel, Mozart, Puccini and Finzi, courtesy of The Pleasure Dome Theatre Company while Friends in Harmony performed such songs as The Prayer, Let It Be Me and You’ll Never Walk Alone.

The stage was beautifully decorated by volunteers from Porlock and Bob McCarthy generously provided a professional audio system ensuring that the audience were treated to an amazing quality of sound.

The event was jointly organised by The Pleasure Dome Theatre Company and Porlock Visitor Centre, but would not have been such a great success without the hard work and support from a band of willing volunteers.
