I wonder if the tube strike will affect many people getting there?

Yes it did affect some of us on the way there as some lines were closed and all had restricted services. Many stations were closed, too (remaining trains didn't stop there). Buses were crowded and lots of walking was done by all! But we made it.
Hayley sang La Califfa as expected and Steve H has some photos, I managed to video it but it needs work to make it presentable, which may take a few days!
Immediately after Hayley sang, they played the 1812 Overture by Tchaikowsky and that was a pretty exciting finale I can tell you, sadly there were no real cannons but they did surprise us with loud firecrackers high up in the hall and they were certainly effective!
Here's a screen capture from the video (Steve's photos will be much better) - it looks like Hayley and the first violin spotted someone important (either to her, them or all of us!) in the audience as she took her bows. But I've no idea who!
