Obviously the start of the Great British Summer as the amount of fantastic local events ramps up this week.
For Blues/roots lovers, the Martin Harley Band is on at the Ironworks, supported by our own Mark Morgan and Liverpool’s Dave O’Grady (hopefully the chatterati will give the gig a wide berth and leave the music lovers to enjoy the evening).
For the classics fans – the Oswestry Sinfonia will be raising the rafters at Holy Trinity Church, with “Trumpet and Drums” in a joyful concert of Haydn, Mozart and Saint Saens.
And an early ticket warning (as I missed out on The Audience) they’ve got a live screening of Macbeth, with Kenneth Brannagh in the title role and Alex Kingston – she of Moll Flanders and Dr River Song fame, as the murderous Lady. I saw Kenneth Brannagh in Henry V, at Stratford in 1984 – I fell for him then and would most happily fall for him again now. So I will definitely be first in the queue for the tickets and give fair warning of dire calamities falling on anyone who so much rattles a popcorn packet during the event – sweetie!
Father’s Day – do they get breakfast in bed and pressies like on Mother’s Day? If not – sweep them off down to Park Hall Farm for the Father’s Day Challenge, that’ll get ‘em bouncing.
And that’s just for starters......
