Bessy turned 2 on Saturday 2nd December and to celebrate, she launched her brand new story on eBook!
A wonderful crowd of family and friends joined Bessy in Stockbridge Church, where she has performed several times, for a small celebration. The party began with a brief synopsis of her new story, Bessy Goes Busking and an introduction to her new friends, Spud’n’Spencer and the Kitchen Band! This was followed by a fun spoon playing session led by Jo May who has collaborated with Bessy on this project. Jo skilfully guided the guests through the techniques required to create a steady rhythm on a variety of types spoons (and ‘Shaky Fruit & Veg”!) and Bessy sang along! Laughter and smiles were in abundance as everyone, from the youngest to the oldest, enthusiastically joined in. Afterwards, Bessy was presented with the most amazing cake made by Jennifer Heaney and given a rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday” at the request of one of our youngest guests who also helped Bessy blow out the candles!
A truly lovely way to spend an afternoon.
Around the World with Bessy – Part one and a half – Bessy Goes Busking is available from www.bessybass.com/shop as a PDF and from Kindle and includes a FREE musical download.
