It’s that time of year when an ever-increasing number of chaps – and chapesses in some cases – grow out their facial hair in an effort to trim the aggressive advances of cancer, by raising awareness among the wider community. Every year the campaign gathers momentum and looks to top the endeavours of the previous year, and this year, local gentlemen’s grooming parlour, Swagger and Jacks of Brideswell Alley are pleased to announce the launch of Te Swagger & Jacks Moustache Oscars 2013 in support of Men’s Prostrate & Testicular Cancer and Mental Health. In conjunction with the Official Movember Charity, they are enlisting a team of MoBros to join them in their quest to grow their moustaches with pride in November. To keep your cheeky whiskers in check, the barbers at Swagger & Jacks will provide registered MoBros with complimentary moustache grooming and shaping throughout November, to keep you looking fine and dandy. Tey’ll also have their own nominated Swagger & Jacks barber to mentor them in moustache etiquette and styling. By registering with Team Swagger & Jacks MoBros directly on the Movember official website, friends and colleagues can donate to your crusade into the world of hairiness, knowing you are raising money for a noble cause. A photograph of your top lip – one at the beginning and one at the end of November - shall be judged and then on Friday 29 November, they’ll be hosting Te Swagger & Jacks Gentlemen's Grooming Evening at the Virgin Money Lounge, Norwich from 6:30 – 8:30pm, at which a distinguished panel of judges shall elect the worthy winner of the first Swagger & Jacks Moustache Oscars.

Te Nanas’ 75th Birthday is a piece of immersive theatre with all the exhilaration of a Saturday night at a festival. Tis is more of a party than your average theatre show. People should arrive ready to be guided through a journey that begins with a sherry reception and ends in strobe light chaos. Te nanas in question are Teatre of Escapades’ beloved geriatric characters, that have delighted audiences around the country, as well as Outline’s own Norwich Body Art Festival. Tey add a little Grandmaster Flash to their Grandmother antics and are the brainchild of two extremely witty – young – ladies, Lili Kumar and Lucy Garland who are planning on leaving a huge stamp on your Saturday night, so you shouldn’t miss it. Accompanying the girls’ antics will be fine sounds from Festival Asylum and guest performances from Hocus Pocus Teatre. Te date for your diary is Saturday 16th Nov, and the night plays out on the top floor of the Hog in Armour. For more details, go to, or find them on Facebook by searching ‘theatreofescapades’.
