Cinderella Panto Production Photos

The full house was in fine form for the opening night of Cinderella at the New Victoria Theatre in Woking (oh yes they were!). It's a fantastic show, very sparkly and glittery with all the usual boos, hisses and laughs. Cinderella is being played by the lovely Joanna Page, the Baron is Michael Aspel, Jon Lee as the prince and Tucker as Buttons. There's even an appearance from real live ponies and Angelina Ballerina (of course, this was my favourite bit!). Thanks for signing my photo Joanna, what a great Christmas present :) ...

James Yuill Live

James' set at the Troubadour was brilliant as usual. His music is an awesome blend of folk, electronica and dance. His label Moshi Moshi Records sum up his style much better than I can. Read this, go to his website, buy his music, you won't be disappointed! "Like many music lovers of his generation James Yuill has a passion for both the emotional songwriting and atmospheres of artists such as Nick Drake, Radiohead and Sufjan Stevens and the visceral beats and dynamic rhythms of Justice, Chemical Brothers and Aphex Twin. Unlike anyone else however, James has fused these seemingly disparate influences into...
