     Not so long ago certain, sensitive, types were chaining themselves to the production lines at Land Rover, demonstrating their disgust at just how un-environmentally friendly the World’s favourite 4x4 once was. Remember? The Chelsea Tractor: We’re all doomed!     So what if I was to tell you that, albeit for not an inconsiderable sum, it’s now possible to buy a Range Rover that will do 101Mpg...

The Classic Rock Show Theatre Severn 19/February/2019 The Rock fan’s ultimate juke box this show is billed as. One might disagree because in a juke box one knows who the artist is..no such luck here. It is uncharacteristic to start with a moan however one is flummoxed as to why shows like this never carry programmes. I have just seen some of the best rock performances one has ever seen and there...

Get Your Wigle On The Adams Family Theatre Severn Wednesday 13th-Saturday 16th  (Matinee on Saturday) When there is evidence of a company working hard and happily together one is very quickly aware there has been a lot of work done. The pay offs are immense and the audience get a sense that it is easy when of course, it’s far from that. For the cast to reach that level they breathe together, they...

      The premium mid-sized SUV is the current motoring must-have. Every manufacturer worth their salt makes one, and every middle manager worth their sales bonus (or not, perhaps?) wants one. Can you imagine what they’d say at the golf club if you didn’t?  As for me, I’ve never been quite so enamoured. SUVs, premium or not, are not exactly what you call exciting. Nevertheless, one should always...

Selladoor Productions Present Fame Theatre Severn Monday 28th January-Saturday 2nd February There was a whole host of intrigue into the operations of the American Fame Academies. Imagine 1978, Irene Cara was whizzing up the charts with Fame (the Song) and on a Thursday if the video jukebox and the Lycra in the pub didn’t tempt you then you may have been sat at home awaiting the weekly edition of...

       I’ve been incredibly lucky. Or should that say privileged? I’ve driven quite a number of new Aston Martins. The N420 Vantage was the first, I got hopelessly lost in that one. Then came a Rapide, closely followed-up by a DBS. Next a Virage – they don’t make them anymore – and then another Vantage, an S, I think. Yes, that‘s right. It was blue, with suspension so hard it literally threw me...

Mother Goose Theatre Severn 28th November 2018-6th January 2019 (For Matinees check brochure) Take an oversized goose, a man in a frock, a narcissistic baddy, a flying fairy, a bevy of villagers and some hilarious one-liners, put them all together and you’re half way to creating the perfect pantomime. To complete the other half bring in Brad Fitt, Eric Smith, Victoria Mc.Cabe, Lisa Davina Phillip...
