Frome gets even more famous

So surreal to see Frome become centre stage for the rock
world last night when Foo Fighters played a secret gig in Frome's music venue the Cheese and Grain which was streamed live on YouTube. It was in connection to their appearance at Glastonbury. Quite a few Frome (pronounced Froom) people got in. Apparently. We didn't bother.
