Bristol AOUG members visited the Dovecote in Bristol for their February pub meal. Then in April they attended a Lunchtime Concert at St. George's Bristol. The Hall Ogden Duo, Judith Hall and Craig Ogden, performed a varied programme on flute and guitar.

St George's can be seen to the bottom right of the photo. Designed by Sir Robert Smirke, it was built in the Greek Doric style in 1832. It was paid for by a Parliamentary Fund, to mark the victory over Napoleon at Waterloo, which led to it being known as a "Waterloo" church. When the church was closed in the 1970s, it was sold to the BBC, who established the St George's Trust, and it became a concert venue. Due to its excellent acoustics, it is now one of the country's leading concert halls.
