It’s Almost That Time Again (oh no it’s not)

Posted on Updated on

Its nearly time to start thinking about the next Pantomime from Norton Theatre Group. I have been writing the script for the past four months. Give it a couple more months and I might be happy with it. … but I doubt it.

I was browsing the internet (procrastinating again) and came across this video (below) which I had forgot all about from 2014/2015. It’s a video by Ruth Wakefield showing the work that goes into putting a show on.It was the second script I had written for the group and contained some great  lines and some bad jokes. .. really bad jokes, really really really ….

If you want to join Norton Theatre Group, either on stage, back stage, or anywhere else, get in touch. visit http://www.nortontheatregroup.org.uk/

 

Granny’s Attic Live at WAW

Grannys Attic1
Granny’s Attic

Well, that was a blast from the past. The last time I saw Grannies Attic was in July 2012. It was actaully at a NJS gig – the last ever Acoustic Lunch at The Old Rectifying House. Granny’s Attic  were near the bottom of the bill below country music act The Cowley Cowboys, Folk/Americana duo The May Dolls (featuring the awesome Tyler Massey) , and local blues legend Bob Jones (first on was Wolvo indie acoustic guitarist Zim Zim if I remember right.). There were only two of them back then but even at that young age (they were probably still at school) you could tell that they were an act to watch.

Acoustic Lunch 2012 – The last time I saw Granny’s Attic.

Now they are a three piece, mandolin/fiddle, guitar, and accordion/squeezeboxes, and man, are they talented? In those four years they have matured, their vocals are perfect for the style of music they choose to play, and it seems a rare thing for a group this young to have such a passion for folk music.

They are unbelievably tight and their musicianship is that of seasoned professionals, but I suppose given the fact that they have been performing on the live scene since they were kids, they probably are seasoned.

Imagine a job that you had to convince the public that you are the right man (or woman) to do the job for the next 3 (or maybe 6 if they do well) years. And imagine if you had to meet some of the public to convince them you were the best candidate… in a pub

Well, the police and crime commissionaire for Worcestershire job is up for grabs and 6 people have stepped into the ring ready to battle it out.

Worcester Arts Workshop #WAWProgress

Posted on Updated on

waw logoYesterday I was invited down to the Worcester Arts Workshop to take part in a discussion / brain storming session.

Worcester Arts Workshop?! Where’s that?
Exactly!

Despite being open for over 40 years there are still many people living in Worcester that do not know it exists.

In its hey day in the 70s and 80s it was a thriving community hub of dance, music, art, discussion and craft. It had a little ‘organisational hiatus’ a while back but now it’s back.

To block or not to block. That is the question ?

Posted on Updated on

Recently I have been thinking of having a Facebook Friend cull but I’m the sort of person that hates to hurt people’s feeling. I hate arguing and will do my best to help anyone who needs help if I can  Hell, if I go a different route in the car to what the sat nav is telling me I feel guilty and have even apologise to it. Yes, I’m that nice.

I have been blocked / unfriended on Facebook in the past by a couple of people. That’s two people, maybe more, that I have annoyed in some way. Not sure what I did wrong but I have to admit that I was a little hurt.

So how do you unfriend someone nicely and should you feel guilty when you do it.  Read the rest of this entry »

Lazy Sunday Review (sort of)

Posted on Updated on

Well that was a pretty fantastic afternoon of live music. It may have been cold but it was dry and the courtyard of the Worcester Arts Workshop was packed with people keen to welcome back the new season of Lazy Sundays.IMG_0050[1]

For those of you who don’t know, Lazy Sunday is a monthly live music event organised by Amanda and Eloina at Cafe Bliss. Running during the warmer months, normally April to September it takes place outside in the courtyard. They seem to get some amazing acts from all over the country and this month (April) was no exception.  Read the rest of this entry »
