Brighton Fringe- Facepaint and Sunshine

Oh joy of joys! Rapture of RAPTURE! This week I’ve been down at the SEASIDE doing some CABARETING! Brighton Fringe beckoned with its gloriously sunny arty open arms to welcome us for a week of sun, sea, sand and sequins. The perfect combination in my humble opinion.

BERLIN Part 1- What’s the WURST that could happen?!

Last Thursday evening, three chums with eyes bleary and heads achey from the slog of the working week convened at Kings Cross St Pancras laden down with overstuffed weekend bags. WE WERE OFF TO BERLIN. Four days of sausages, beer, sight-seeing, beer, hostelling, beer and rollicking good fun awaited us. Of course there was only one way to whet our over-excitable whistles-by sampling some of the delights in the brilliant Sourced Market Bar at St Pancras which stocks a WHOLE HOST of craft ales  ...
