Goodwood wouldn’t be complete with a set of interesting characters to watch. At the Revival there is a period dress code, which offers a wonderful opportunity for some great people pictures. With the cold weather this weekend most people gave up worrying about style, choosing layers for warmth. Of course, the organisers had still provided opportunities to relax for those who wished to. There was always some live music going on in the Daffodil, a large refreshment tent entirely decorated with daffs for those who wanted to retreat from the cold. Elsewhere I even found a couple of hardy individuals watching the racing in the snow from deckchairs!
After the action of track had finished for the day the circuit became a place of pleasure, with plenty of live entertainment to keep up enthralled. The evening started with a samba band, whose rhythms were truly infectious. The sound of their drums must have carried for miles and they were the perfect way to get the party started.
Inside the Great Hall a big band played and I found an old friend I knew from nearly thirty years ago playing saxophone with them. It was great to catch up and I loved the music they were playing.
Finally I wandered over to the big tent where I found a brass group playing pop songs from the 80s. They were absolutely fantastic and the crowd were dancing away with enthusiasm. The light show on stage made photography a never ending magical mystery tour as you never knew quite when the colours and pulsating patterns were going to change. Not that it mattered in the slightest as it made for some dramatic results!
