For one of my birthday presents Kate got me two tickets for Stewart Lee at Chelmsford’s Civic Theatre and we persuaded my brother and his wife to come along too seeing as it’s just over the road from where they live.
When I first read 1984 I was struck by the passage where Winston and Julia discover that their secret hide-away isn't quite as secret as they think it is. It left such an impression on my minds eye, I don't think I'll ever forget it - even thinking about it now makes me uncomfortable.
Every year Kate and I seem to make a new year’s resolution that we should go to the theatre more. It’s now November and I’m blogging about the second play we’ve seen this year, which will give you an idea of how successful this particular resolution has been.
Since the sad demise of the now legendary Rainbow Value afternoon sessions down at 93 Feet East there's been a yawning gap in London's clubbing landscape. Fortunately that gap has now been filled by the latest brainchild of Gavin, Jack, Jimmy and Steve: Video Clash.
Every year I have the same recurring new year resolution to see more live comedy and every year I have the same recurring problem, a complete failure to fulfil any of my new year resolutions. Fortunately this year I’ve got off to much better start.
I'd been looking forward to the Ed Banger 7th Birthday rave for quite a while and it didn't dissapoint. In a word, it was nuts!
