Beyond the Barricade Theatre Severn 16th October 2018 Sorry Spandau Ballet fans, there was not a single note of that beautiful song, instead there was a mixed bag of songs from the shows, leading to their big finale piece taken of course from, Les Miserables. So who is, Beyond the Barricade? They are all former performers from the West End run of Les Miserables although the four vocalists visited...

   It is inevitable that sooner or later you will ask. So, I will save you the trouble. A Rolls Royce Ghost EWB – that’s extended wheelbase incidentally – should you require or desire such a car, and in exactly the same specification as the one their rather lovely PR people loaned me recently, will set you back… £281,925. That’s excluding local taxes.    How you might ask, can any car costing...

The Robin Nolan Trio Walker Theatre Friday October 12th Living proof that you can improve on perfection; After a perfect start this Gypsy Jazz trio just got better and better. Initially here’s a quick glance of the genre. Gypsy Jazz is a unique sound fusing Jazz Music with Blues with folk with pop. Played on guitars and maybe violin and trumpet, it is a fast, pacey and exciting sound. Like all...

The Simon and Garfunkel Story Theatre Severn 25th September 2018   The most significant aspect of the peace loving Sixties was the fact that before and since the changes between the decades had been incremental at best but in truth barely noticeable. From the un-expectant wings on the stage of humanity the Sixties exploded like a rampant troubadour with its poetry, it’s peaceful doctrines and its...

    You’re probably familiar with Jaguar’s F-Pace by now, their first foray into the premium SUV market is also their best seller. Like Porsche, Jaguar actually shift more 4x4s these days than they do sportscars. The purists may baulk at the idea, but clearly the faux-by-four is what makes the big money these days.    It’s no wonder then, that, keen to cash–in ever further, Jaguar have now also...

G4 Theatre Severn 7 September 2018 It was so long ago 2004 in fact when G4 burst onto our screens coming second on series two of X-Factor. In that time G4 have been busy splitting, reforming and sorting out new personnel. However having done that they brought us a new genre, that of Cross-over, offering up classic pop songs as classical music and classical music was given  the contemporary twist...

     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...

Sasha Regan’s All Male Iolanthe Theatre Severn 19th July -21 July (Saturday Matinee 2.30pm) Well it would appear that Sasha Regan’s all male cast have done it again. 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. This is a great, captivating, sometimes breath taking show; it brings the feel and the spirit of a mystical land far across the water. The land of Celts, of magic, history and stories, of sweet sounding music...
