Mersey Beatles Theatre Severn 25/September/2022 I think the most amazing truth about the Beatles music is the fact that just 18 years after the West and the East met in Berlin to destroy fascism together; The Beatles were riding high at number one with “I wanna hold your hand.” Doesn’t it make you wonder, did the one lead to the other?

The Vietnam War was boiling away, grinding the best of American Youth to dust.

John Archer Walker Theatre Sunday March 1st 2020   It wasn’t a full Walker Theatre that awaited the comedy Magician John  Archer. One of the very few magicians to fool Penn And Teller and with his doing so well on Britain’s Got Talent, the audience were looking forward to being both mystified and entertained and by the reaction at the end of his show?
