we’re winners and other stories

Every year the show is so unique and we get to experience the energy and enthusiasm of the live performance for those two magical days.  With the video, we continually strive to capture each moment in a format that will  last forever – So the memories stay fresh and the experience can be remembered.

We hope you enjoy the piece as we already start the preparation for the coming year – the 30th anniversary performance, which will most certainly contain a number of surprises!
