Middlewick House Open Garden Event Reflections 2024

Nick Mason’s Middlewick House Open Garden charity event has concluded for another year and looked like an amazing success. My visit this year, my second year now, was much improved by meeting and talking to Nick Mason for the first time. He signed my Limited Edition Inside Out book and I had a very brief chat with him. Nick has a great skill in picking the weekend with the best weather well in advance as it was a great family day out with a positive summer vibe.

Roger Waters and his 14 strong army of musicians performed Dark Side of the Moon Redux at The London Palladium. It divided opinion in the media and online from fans in the two shows Sunday and Monday. The show was split in two. The first half saw Roger talking at the audience at length about Julian Assange and Donald his pet duck. Crazy stuff. He also talked about his forthcoming memoirs. Title is “I’ll See You On The Dark Side Of The Moon: Memoirs Of A Lanky Prick”. The second half was the Dark Side performance that fans had paid big money to watch.
