So Shrewsbury...have you read anything good lately!?

I have, the beautiful book 'Shrewsbury Station Just After Six' written by local author, journalist and very dear friend Philip Gillam. 

Before I go on to talk about the book, please allow me to tell you a little bit about the author. I have known Philip Gillam for about 12 years now, he is an amazing dad to my best...

Hello Lovely Folks of Shrewsbury.

This year is a going to be a very exciting one. I am proud to say (for those of you that haven't already heard!) that this October, Shrewsbury will be playing host to it's FIRST EVER Oxjam Takeover event.

Hello shrewsbury friends, long time no blog, huh!?

Well, with the snowy, cold evenings well and hopefully behind us I figured what better way to bring myself back into the LoveShrewsbury blogosphere than with a story about a truely remarkable night I had, with some truely remarkable people...the Electro Spring Ball!

Before I go on to rave about the night itself, allow me to give...

With autumn well and truly in place and Christmas is, (dare we say it) on the horizon it seems only too right that some some well deserved magic be brought back into Shrewsbury's theatre.
And who better to bring it, than the ever popular theatre company Get Your Wigle On as they invite you to 'be our guest' as they present to you Disney's Beauty and the Beast!

Magic will be in...

As reported last week, Shrewsbury played host to the fashion show of up and coming designer Naomi Langford-Archer and her brand of children's wear Marmalade and Mash.
As a Shrewsbury girl, born and bred, Naomi Langford-Archer started her brand after graduating from London College of Fashion in which she studied children's wear.

So, this weekend I hauled ass up to the Shrewsbury Fields festival-more specifically the Sunday Jestival.

Before I talk about the wonderfully funny acts I had the pleasure of seeing, let me first set the scene...it was pretty bizarre! I'm not sure whether it was the time of day (we rolled up around 3pm) and to be honest, I don't really know what I was expecting but I was first hit by...

So, it's that time of year where some of our young shrewsbury folk are heading out of town for university. As a former university goer myself I learned that uni' is less about what you learn in your text book, but more about what you learn about life and yourself. So, I'd like to pass on some things that, with a little help from my friends, I learned along the way.

Last Saturday, I took to Shrewsburys' Theatre Severn to watch the Wizard of Oz, performed by Shrewsbury' amateur dramatic company Get Your Wigle On. With costumes and set both professionally made and scenes that include the cast flying through the air, it promised to be a spectacle of a show...and it really was.

The set looked great, the band was note perfect (I think...I'm not a...
