Birmingham Royal Ballet Seasons in Our World/Peter And The Wolf Theatre Severn Friday 17th…Saturday 18th May (Matinee at 14:00) It is always so refreshing to watch a company like Birmingham Royal Ballet (BRB) they always leave one astounded, overawed and humbled all at the same time which is quite a maelstrom of emotion. It is only the best that can engender that kind of complete exploration of...

Seven Drunken Nights Theatre Severn Tuesday May 14th 2019 There is just so much to this show incredibly enjoyable and in some places exhilarating. One believes the people of Shrewsbury suspected it might be a good one as the theatre was packed. They were right. Seven Drunken Nights is the story in Song, Words and Music of the great Irish band, The Dubliners. Framed in the studio of The Late, Late...

National Dance Company Wales: Cenedlaethol Cwmni Dawns Cymru Awakening Tuesday 7th May 2019 To understand or even to enjoy modern dance one has to erase and preconceptions one has, any expectations in fact anything at all. What one needs to watch modern dance is a completely open mind. When one is in that receptive state of no expectations then the stage will be alive for you with movements you...

That’ll  Be The Day Theatre Severn Thursday 25th April   Well this show promised to be full of Rock and Roll Music laced with hilarious comedy. Hilarious? Very bold indeed. The music was almost faultless, the hilarious comedy? What a subjective claim. To say it creaked like a rickety staircase is being unfair to the stairs. The comedy was incredibly obvious and unfortunately really quite weak,...

   I passed my test in 1990, in a MK3 Ford Fiesta. First time too, I hasten to add. But student budgets being what they were back then simply I couldn’t afford anything as advanced as a blue 1,100c, 3 door Fiesta Popular complete with its 4 speed gearbox and optional rear wash-wipe, like that of my instructor’s.  Upon gaining my freedom, my first car was an orange Hillman Imp.     In the 1990’s...

Terrible Tudors Theatre Severn Wednesday 10th April-Sunday 14th (For times see brochure) As explained in the last review (Awful Egyptians) Horrible Histories have two shows playing. Today it was, The Terrible Tudors. Luckily the only terrible thing about this show is the name and that’s not really terrible at all; As anticipated it is my delight to inform you right away that this show is as much...

Horrible Histories Awful Egyptians Theatre Severn Wednesday 10th April-Sunday 14th April Awful Egyptians This is a two halved review . Today I will talk about Awful Egyptians and tomorrow I will review the Terrible Tudors. Both playing at Theatre Severn twice a day until Sunday. If you are over twenty but under thirty one imagines that you were amused or even roared out loud to this incredible...

Steeleye Span Theatre Severn Monday 8th April 2019  It is inconceivable but nevertheless true that Steeleye Span are this year, celebrating fifty years in the music industry. Yes that’s fifty years. Admittedly the line up has changed many times over those five decades but throughout it all steadfastly leading from the front is the inimitable Maddy Prior. Over the fifty years music styles have...

     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...
