The Freddie Starr Interview inside...

Hi all, As part of a initiative to ensure we are the best read independent, free magazine around, we have been making improvements here at the Express Advertisers yet again. Firstly, we changed from single colour to full colour and this month we decided to ‘up the anti’ even further by increasing the mag size too! Not only this, but you can read the first of our celebrity interviews - the ‘wacky and wonderful, Freddie Starr.. I was privileged enough to speak in length and what an experience it was - a true star in every sense of the word! Our Banbury and Village magazine is being launched this month for the October edition and we have a new Express Press Design & Print website.

Although we are still perfecting things, you can view it to find all our latest special offers on design, print, advertising and website deals. Phew!

Treat the person...

...not the symptom

Traditional acupuncture is a healthcare system based on ancient principles which go back nearly two thousand years. It has a very positive model of good health and function, and looks at pain and illness as signs that the body is out of balance. As such, the overall aim of acupuncture treatment is to restore the body’s equilibrium. What makes this system so uniquely suited to modern life is that physical, emotional and mental levels are seen as interdependent, reflecting the common perception of life today. Traditional acupuncturists believe that the underlying principle of

For more information contact Brian Pollitt - Licensed Acupuncturist at tel: 0777 201 0081 or visit:

treatment is that illness and pain occur when the body’s qi, or vital energy, cannot flow freely. There can be many reasons for this; emotional and physical stress, poor nutrition, infection or injury are among the most common. Thus when diagnosing a patient and determining an appropriate treatment plan, we treat the person, not the symptom. But what does this actually mean, you might ask? For example, if you have a headache, you might just pop a painkiller, which may be ok for the occasional headache. However if you get them regularly, then you need to know what is causing it and treat that, rather than just masking the pain.

Acupuncture for you? Acupuncture is a healing system that treats the whole person, body and mind, not just your symptoms. Acupuncture works; it has been researched, developed and refined over centuries and is commonly used to treat many physical and emotional conditions. To see how acupuncture can help you, feel free to call or e-mail, there’s no obligation.

treating headaches caused by menstruation. The headache is a symptom, so in this example we help the person to cope better with their stress, or to make her periods less uncomfortable. This is what makes acupuncture successful in treating those areas where western medicine doesn’t always have an answer. We don’t have to label the disease to treat it; we look at the pattern of energetic imbalances in front of us and treat that. Restoring the balance removes the need for the body to provide symptoms.

Treating headaches caused by stress needs a different approach to

Freddie St Int arr erview

I was extremely excited to be starting off our celebrity interview spot with the wonderful (and wacky) Freddie Starr. I had the distinct feeling, that perhaps it wouldn’t be that easy – he’s not renowned for being the easiest of interviewees, but isn’t that part of his charm? I began by introducing myself – explaining I was from the Express Advertiser. “You’re from where?” Freddie asked me, with a slightly suspicious intonation to his voice. I reiterated I was from a small independent advertising publishers (putting the emphasis on small as I didn’t want to be associated with a well-known tabloid of a similar name).

emerge as the class clown?

Q. You are in the middle of quite a lengthy, hectic tour, it must be extremely tiring, how have you prepared?

A. Why prepare? I climb Mount Everest every other day!

Les Dawson and Tommy Cooper as your comedy heroes, but who do think measures up today?

I wasn’t sure what he was talking about at the time, was this Freddie being his ‘off the wall’, zany character? Upon reflection, I believe that he was using Mount Everest as an analogy for the huge task of making hundreds of people laugh on stage night after night. Stand up is renowned for being the hardest (and loneliest) job in show business – so yes Freddie, I totally agree with your sentiment.

A. No, they’re not my comedy

Book tickets...

questions like, ‘Where’s my favourite venue?’ and then I can reply, ‘I haven’t got a favourite, they’re all the same to me, none of them pay on time!’

Q. You have reportedly named

heroes - they just make me laugh. They had a real warmth about them, not like today’s guys, no warmth and they’re just not funny.

You can see Freddie Starr at the Royal Spa Centre on 30th September 2011. It should be a treat into comedy of a by gone era. I have my tickets!

Q. How about someone like Lee Evans?

The Royal Spa Centre Box Office: 01926 334418 or book online at royalspacentre. Newbold Terrace, Leamington Spa, CV32 4HN.

A. Yes, I do find him very funny,

but he’s about the only one. It’s like the whole of TV these days – who wants to watch people eating for half an hour, for God sake, on Right then (deep breathe – well, it ‘Come Dine with Me’? TV is full of was THE Freddie Starr on the other reality rubbish. People in TV think end of the line!). I’m dead, you know?

Q. At school Freddie, did you

doing an impression of him, singing “Heartbreak Hotel” and pretending to trip over the microphone lead. Great man!

Some more dates...

Q. Why is that, do you think Freddie?

A. Definitely – I was really likeable; A. I don’t know, but I’m a true a cheeky chappy - everyone loved me!

Q. Tell me about your first

comedy performance – did you get the show business bug from this very moment?

A. I can’t remember that, too

long ago, ask me some decent


Q. To me Freddie, your

impressions of Elvis Presley are just the best, but did you ever meet The King?

A. I did, he was a fantastic guy.

I met him three times – he knew me in the end. I made him laugh

With a proven method of pinpointing consumers, our unrivalled direct letterbox distribution is favoured by all to ensure their advert reaches its target audience. Unlike many lifestyle publications, we do not rely upon The Express being voluntarily picked up at outlets - our method of circulation guarantees our magazine entering homes and businesses, resulting in maximum viewing potential. Due to its full colour glossy appearance, The Express does not look amiss on any discerning coffee table, ensuring its long ‘shelf life’ and appeal.

• Hatton Park
