Scott Matthews
Henry Tudor House
9th April 2013

I arrived last night at the venue prior to Scott Matthews’ set. There was an excited buzz amongst the waiting crowd as bringing someone of Scott’s standing to Shrewsbury is a big deal and a major coup for Graham and Clare Jenkins, the owners of  Henry Tudor House.

It turns out that Scott was looking for a small tour in...

The Russian Street Dance Ensemble’s
Russian Cossacks
Theatre Severn

It  can be a long time in life if you are waiting  for a show with such energy and pazzazz  to come your way but boy when they do. They really do!

With two high octane filled halves the Russian dancers span, they twirled, they leapt and somersaulted. This was an incredible show from...

Patsy Cline the Concert
Theatre Severn

A grand title considering poor Ms Cline has been dead fifty years after leaving us in the true Rock ‘n ’Roll style. She was killed in a plane crash in 1963. But of course her impact on the Country Music scene was without doubt one of the greatest contributions that any artist could only ever dream of making in their...

Gilbert and Sullivan Abridged
Theatre Severn

As a fan of minimalistic theatre and portable theatre shows, one would imagine the sight of just three singers with a screen and wicker basket would please me immensely. However in this case the three plucky vocalists failed to fill cavernous space on the main stage in Theatre Severn and would have impacted far greater...

The Irish House Party
Theatre Severn

At last a theatre show that has come out of Ireland without the dross that usually follows. We saw no green Guinness, no leprechauns and no tricolour wigs; instead we got six incredibly talented and delightful musicians who simply wanted to bring the sound of Ireland without the ludicrous plasticity that so many of the...

The Human Race/A Mother’s Ransom
Walker Theatre

It is often said that Theatre Critics snipe from the side-lines and yet never put their heads above the parapet. Not that that can be said of me! This Friday I am presenting two of my one act plays in the Walker Theatre. I believe it is...

Robin Nolan Trio
Walker Theatre


A hoard of Gypsy Jazz fans hurried into the Walker Theatre last night to catch some of the hottest Gypsy Jazz in town. The Robin Nolan Trio were about capture new fans and to further secure the ones they had already collected along the way.

Moscow Ballet La Classique
Theatre Severn


Of all the art forms known to us, possibly dance is one of the broadest of churches. With such a huge variety of styles and genres it is clearly one of the most diverse of the art-forms we have.  Dance has been used to lead people to war, to...

Well may I be about the last possible person to offer you a Happy New Year. Is it really  that long since we have spoken? My last review was for the hilarious, record breaking pantomime and then it was time to rest my aching brain. That took a day or so and then it was party time. All done and here I am back with you.

I wonder if being the last person to offer such wishes makes me a...
