    It’s hard to believe that twelve years have passed since I tentatively approached Volkswagen’s press office to see if they’d consider lending me a car. Whatever it was I wrote in my email must’ve worked: a few weeks later I found myself the custodian of what was then a brand-new 1.2 litre, Polo Moda; all £13,250 of it. With a whopping 69bhp, the capability to go from 0-62mph in 14.2 seconds,...

Classic Steeleye Span. Take the amazing...

Walker Theatre Theatre Severn Bob Drury’s Viva Neil Diamond Unplugged 13: May: 2022 Well, I’ll start by giving you a smile. As I sat in the Foyer there was only about seven people sitting waiting and I thought “Oh Dear, Poor Fella,” The joke was on me! Totally misreading my ticket I manged to arrive a full forty-five minutes before the start of his 8pm show. Lesson for Owen J. Lewis? Read your...

  How many times have you heard someone tell you that when they next buy a car “It’ll definitely be either Japanese or German”?  I’ve even said it myself. Both countries are considered by those in-the-know (or those supposedly in the know, perhaps) to be the masters of motor manufacturing; their near-legendary reputations for engineering excellence and uncompromising quality come well-earned, and...

       I have it on very good authority – from an inside man, one might say – that Suzuki plan to introduce an all-electric vehicle in 2025. Quite what that vehicle will be however he wouldn’t, or couldn’t, say.       That’s not to say, that Suzuki aren’t currently doing their bit to help reduce fuel costs and CO2 emissions. All of Suzuki’s current passenger car range (note: The much beloved...

Theatre Severn, National Dance Company of Wales One Another/Law Ynllaw Tuesday 5th April When one goes to watch a production by the National Dance Company of Wales one expects to be not only entertained but to be challenged.

The Wizard Of Oz Theatre Severn 23rd March-26th March (Matinee on 26th see brochure) One of the biggest projects that an amateur theatre company can take on must be The Wizard Of Oz; not only did the Shrewsbury Musical Theatre Company take it on, they owned it.
