Hit The North real ale festival

I saw this in the new issue of Shindig!, but so far I've not been able to find out much more about it (links, flyer etc). So I'll let you know roughly what I've read about the Hit The North real ale festival. It's essentially beer meets 60s grooves. Talking […]

BBC Four does reggae

February sounds an interesting month on BBC Four, headed up by shows on reggae on Friday 11th and Friday 18th February. Two new documentaries will show, Reggae Britannia and Toots And The Maytals – Reggae Got Soul, along with a specially filmed Reggae Britannia At The Barbican concert and Reggae […]

We Are TukTuk – sale

I'll be honest, I never know what the company is actually called, so I'm going for We Are TukTuk and mentioning that it has a sale. I believe the shirts are only made in limited numbers, so there's not a huge amount to clear. Saying that, there are discounts of […]

Soulboy DVD reviewed

Not been a wasted Christmas break here – I've been catching up with some review material, kicking off with Soulboy. If you missed it (not that it's likely), Soulboy is a movie based around the Wigan Casino, with an average 'Joe' (quite literally, that's his name) chasing a girl in […]
