Berthon Lymington Marina trialled an innovative music concert on Friday 7th August. It would be safe to say the event was a resounding success. The weather was perfect, the Band was on point and the atmosphere was magical.
Many have realised that Boating might just be the perfect way to socially distance. Brian May, Berthon’s Managing Director, had a light bulb moment – why don’t we bring live music to our Berth Holders whilst they are socially distanced on board? The event swiftly materialised to take advantage of the perfect weather conditions.
300 berth holders attended the ticketed event on a glorious balmy August evening. As the evening progressed, there was dancing on board boats up and down the pontoons. Clapping, whooping and horns rang out across the marina as the songs finished.
The event was even special for Inchley and the All Stars Band, their first live gig this year and a unique experience for them playing to a floating audience surrounded by masts!
Many berth holders took the time to send us some lovely comments including:
“There was a unique atmosphere and the sounds of ships horns (including the ferry) up and down the marina at night was spectacular to be a part of. A unique and privileged experience that we’ll remember forever.”
Berthon were delighted that the trial event was so well received and look forward to posting details of future events.
