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...

Mr. Charles Dickens Presents A Christmas Carol Walker Theatre 12/November/2018 It is 175 years since Mr. Dickens first put quill to velum to bring us the most favourite story of our great Christmas season. A Christmas Carol. It is hard to believe that a piece of work so relevant and so fresh can be so old, but it is and for all those decades this allegorical tale of Mr. Scrooge delights and warns...

To Have To Shoot Irish Men Walker Theatre 1st November 2018 Well what a mixed bag we have with this show, contrasting styles, conventions and design all went to give slightly less than one initially imagined. This Almanac Arts production of Lizzie Nunnery’s To Have To Shoot Irishmen, has taken hold of a period of Irish History, the Easter uprising of 1916 and contrasted and scrutinised the effect...

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...
