Sophie's diary: Week Five

Over the summer, Sophie will be keeping a record of her thoughts and achievements as Gloucestershire's Blast reporter.

Sophie's profile page contains more information about her.

Week Five

I didn’t have too much to do this week as it wasn’t a matter of contacting people, just something I could get on with on my own. I went along to the evening leg of the Bank Holiday All dayer at The Welsh Harp. It was cool to write a piece on something that I really enjoy and would be going along to anyway!

Pesky festivals and absent notepads

The excellent Featherstone

The gig was quite good, but it was a shame there weren’t more bands I knew playing and that their weren’t as many people as usual – that’s probably because they were all tired from the Carling festivals!

Paul, the sound engineer stole my notepad halfway through the first performance - I didn’t want him reading my terrible notes, or for him to see my awful scrawls which look like something a five year old would write like! Luckily, after much jumping about, I managed to get it back eventually, hitting my hand along the way - tough life for a journalist hehe.

I felt a bit of a nuisance walking around the front of the floor area with a camera, but I don’t think anyone minded, so by the end of the night I felt quite confident with it all.

Quite cool

It was quite cool because I got to go talk to lots of random people and had the article as my excuse. I have several ideas for next weeks article, not sure what it’s going to be quite yet, but I hope you enjoy this week's reviews…
