    Had a fantastic afternoon. Felt very safe as the layout in the Cathedral was very well spaced out and not crowded. Staff very friendly and seemed delighted to be there as were we. Great singer too and obviously lot of fantastic gins. Well worth the long wait. Thanks to all. Will definately be back
