Goldfrapp at the Royal Festival Hall

My friend and colleague Claire had to wait two years to see this concert, but wow was it worth the wait... Goldfrapp's debut album came out 20 years ago, and this was a tour to celebrate that album, along with some other classics. The venue was the Royal Festival Hall, which has the most incredible sound, helped by the sound design and the Q Strings, who were awesome in a James Bond style way... the album is also a classic. Here are some favourites from the evening, captured by people who thankfully were not sat near me...

At their best, food programmes are also social history, culture, anthropology and much more. This is one of those programmes. Catch up with it on iPlayer. Tonight's programme was 45 minutes of Florentine splendour.
