like hen’s teeth; you couldn’t get one for the price of your Granny. So don’t miss next year’s show; you’re guaranteed a brilliant evening.


MARCH It’s that time again: 6th – 10th March at The Flavel, and selected venues throughout Dartmouth, sees the annual bun-fest that is the Festival of Comedy rolling into town. Looks to be an excellent line-up this year, with such comedic luminaries as Mark Steel, Jenny Éclair, Miles Jupp and the mind-boggling magician Ali Cook gracing the stage. My mother (and, I suspect, yours too) used to berate me with the old saw ‘If you can’t say something nice, then don’t say anything’…I will, however, add this cautionary tale: my wife went to Plymouth recently to see Sarah Millican, who, on the television, always makes us both chuckle. The final verdict on the show? Sporadically funny, occasionally amusing but the language left a huge amount to be desired. Ms. Millican apparently commented upon her use of expletives, citing the fact that she ‘wasn’t allowed to swear on the telly, so I always take full advantage of the opportunity’. Be warned. Shutting up now. Running alongside the Comedy Festival is an exhibition


of work from Simon Drew. Now he always makes me smile; doesn’t matter how many times I wander by his shop in Foss Street, there’s usually something there to cheer me up if I need it. His exhibition runs from 1st – 12th March. Then, from 12th to the end of the month, local artist Anne Marie Rowden has her inaugural exhibition at The


Flavel. Using textiles and paintings, she displays swathes of colour and sweeping landscapes from in and around the area. There are some quite stunning pieces to be seen – support your local artists! The Lunchtime Concerts are up and running at The


Flavel now. These are fundraising events for the theatre and, although nominally free, a retiring collection is made. Every little bit helps to support our Arts Centre, so, if you fancy being entertained during your lunch-break, head down to the Flavel on 8th March and hear a local group of saxophonists giving their all.


WINDY GIGS There have been some superb musicians at The


Windjammer over the holidays and, happy to say, Andy is keeping the ball rolling this month. Every year he has a fundraiser for the Music Festival and this year’s is happening on Sunday 18th March. The incredibly talented Porter Family, who always give so freely of their time, are back once again this year, but you will need to book your tickets as soon as possible. Andy packs as many people in as he can but space is limited, so get in early. Remember the amazing Groanbox? Well, a friend of theirs, one Keith James, who rarely ventures beyond the confines of Kent, has heard what a great gig The Windjammer is; and you can hear what a fantastic musician this guy is on 22nd March, when he will be doing a show based around the music of the utterly superb Nick Drake. This is one not to miss.
