Cello, cello, cello, what's all this 'ere then?

Hilary and I are both graduates of Durham University, and still get the alumni magazine Durham First. Recently it contained an article about the Extreme Cellists, as two of the three are Durham graduates. I thought I had to share it with you. If the thought of three people playing cello music on English cathedral rooftops, or in Derbyshire caves, or on every street on the (British) Monopoly board in a single day (but why did they omit the stations?) leaves you cold, you've come to the wrong blog, mate.

Here is a couple of pictures from their site showing then playing on the roof at Peterborough and again at Rochester:

They have raised a lot of money for charity, and would seem well worth supporting. I await their next exploit with interest.
