Roughshod On The Road: Mini-Tour pt.2

One of the joys of Roughshod is being able to visit so many new places, discovering hidden gems all around England. Our Mini tour has certainly allowed us to do that, zipping up and down the country, from Poole to Newcastle-Under-Lyme to London! Mini tour has been something we have all looked forward to, the chance to do the full show every night and get a glimpse of what God is doing in communities across the country.

One highlight for me was being able to take the team to my home in East London. Being able to show my family and friends what I’ve been getting up to, whilst also being able to communicate the heart of the show to the community I love, meant a lot. Plus getting to see my dog and introduce the team to her was an extra bonus!

Another highlight for me lay in our stop at the village of Great Bedwyn. My inner historian got very excited about discovering the tomb of Sir John Seymour, father of Lord Protector John Seymour and of Jane Seymour, who had lain in the church since 1590! As I said earlier in the blog, it’s the hidden gems of England we get to spot that make this tour just that little bit more exciting. (Well I was excited… I’m not about the rest of the shoddies though.)

Outside of travelling in the van and performing, we have been able to make the most of the gorgeous weather as the UK has finally decided to give us a proper summer. An early purchase of an American Football has not gone to waste and we hope to be able to make even more use of the ball and the weather in Reigate this week!
