     It’s the noise you remember most. Long after you’ve pressed the button that switches the F-Type R’s engine off, and long after the exhaust system has stopped pinging itself cool, the sound of Jaguar’s 5.0 litre supercharged V8 lingers long in the air.    It shatters the morning silence on start-up – four trumpet-like tailpipes playing a fanfare that signals your departure – before settling...

After delighting Shrewsbury audiences a couple of years ago with HMS Pinnafore they have returned with Iolanthe. It is a theatrical delight. If you can imagine Iolanthe being predominately a love story it is hilarious to see the...

The National Dance Company of Ireland Rhythm Of The Dance Theatre Severn 15 July 2018   Straight from the off you know you are going to witness something rather special. One is not mistaken.

The Elvis Years Theatre Severn 6th July 2018   Tonight Theatre Severn was absolutely packed to the rafters and beyond, something of quality was about to happen and the crowd waited with an excited buzz waiting to see their hero, Elvis Presley, well Mario Kombou but that’s a close to Elvis Presley as we could ever be.

Bringing Back the Sixties. The New Amen Corner/Mike D’Abo/Little Miss Sixties Theatre Severn Thursday 7th June 2018 One is always concerned with the Sixties bands as to who were the original members and who is related to who. It is impossible to say that The New Amen Corner have any originals at all. They were all too young with the exception of the Bassist. On checking the internet it seems that...

Raymond Froggatt Walker Theatre Friday 18th May 2018 An evening in the company of the mercurial mind of Raymond Froggatt is an evening to be remembered. To spend time in the company of this doyen of pop music is both a privilege and a joy. Pop sensation Raymond Froggatt came onto the stage to start the show and he appeared a little breathless. Had he run from the furthest dressing room, did the...
