latest brighton & hove news IN BRIEF ■ ALBION HERO TO OPEN WORKSHOPS FOR

BRIGHTON’S TRAINEE MECHANICS

Brighton & Hove Albion Life President Dick Knight is to open the revamped motor vehicle workshops where the next generation of mechanics learn their trade. City College Brighton and Hove spent £820,000 revamping the workshops at its Wilson Avenue site. It said that the overhaul was part of a drive to raise standards in teaching and learning. The workshops are used by 200 youngsters and they’re keen for more old cars to practise on. Smaller cars which are lighter and easier to move are ideal such as Ford Escorts and Fiestas, Peugeot 106 and 306 models, VW Polos, Vauxhall Corsas and Fiat Puntos. The cars won’t be going on the road – they’re just for workshop practice at the City College East campus. Anyone willing to donate an old car can contact course leader Steve Philliben on 01273 667788 x615 or by email at sp1@ccb.ac.uk.

■ EQUALITY WALK RAISES £65,000 TO

TACKLE HOMOPHOBIC BULLYING

Stonewall said that 600 people took part in its Brighton Equality Walk, making it the biggest ever and raising £65,000 to help tackle homophobic bullying in schools. John Bercow, the Speaker of the House of Commons, and his wife Sally started the 10k walk. Mr Bercow said: “Thank you to Stonewall, who must be regarded as one of the most successful campaigns in British political history.” This year’s walk was supported by American Express and Square Peg Media. The top team prize went to PricewaterhouseCoopers, who raised more than £7,000. Other walkers included the Mayor of Brighton & Hove, Councillor Anne Meadows, and the two Brighton MPs Caroline Lucas and Simon Kirby. Stonewall fundraising director Catherine Bosworth said that the money would support its work in primary and secondary schools. YouGov research for the campaign group found that homophobia was endemic in Britain’s schools. It reported that nine in ten secondary school teachers and more than two in five primary school teachers as saying that children and young people, regardless of their sexual orientation, currently experience homophobic bullying, name calling or harassment in their schools.

■ OFF THE FENCE AIMS TO RAISE £250K TO

BUY DROP-IN CENTRE PREMISES

A charity that supports the homeless, vulnerable women and young people has started a £250,000 appeal to enable it to buy the building that houses its drop-in centre. Off The Fence is aiming to buy 37 Portland Road in Hove to put its service for the homeless on a steadier footing. Off The Fence currently runs one of the largest day centres for homeless people in the city. Last year 7,400 people come through the doors. The charity also runs a busy schools programme, providing lunchtime clubs and a course in “building healthy relationships” to help transform the lives of young people. At its premises in Portslade, Off The Fence also supports vulnerable women, providing a drop-in centre for those facing a crisis, enabling them to receive support and regain dignity in life.

An old fad is coming back into vogue – Sussex business partners Mo Salvage and Rae Guroo were fed up with blustery winds ruining family outings and have set up Hazydaze to make fabric windbreaks both for the beach and beach huts. “After spending another windy day on the coast we both came to the conclusion that a decent windbreak can make your day,” said Mo. “We wondered if you could still get traditional canvas breaks and after doing some research, realised there was a gap in the market, especially for people with beach huts.” Rae said, “We are both creative but practical and so by the end of the afternoon we had come up with a modern twist on a trusted design.

Power to the chain gang? Brighton and Hove has rejected the prospect of Boris Vs Ken. Frank le Duc reports on our mayor

W

ho needs a Boris for Brighton? What about a Ken on the coast? No thanks. Here, we like our mayors to be dignified, civil and ceremonial. We even voted for it to stay that way just over ten years ago. And last month the council reaffirmed the result of that referendum even though elected mayors have been back in the frame lately. Ministers say that they want electors to know who’s making the decisions that govern our lives. So if it’s not the mayor, who really decides what happens in Brighton and Hove? Until relatively recently it used to be councillors in various committee meetings, just as it was in Victorian times. Then we switched and invested power in a leader and cabinet – modelled on the style of the Prime Minister and his cabinet. But now we’re going back to the future. Nine key committees will make most of the decisions that affect the way our city is run. The full council will settle any differences and sign off the biggest decisions. There will still be a leader of the council. From Thursday 17 May it will be 33-year-old Councillor Jason Kitcat. And the mayor? He or she will chair meetings of the full council and have a casting vote. At the same time the mayor will be the public face of the city and the council. On Thursday 17 May the current council leader Councillor Bill Randall will become the first Green mayor of Brighton and Hove, taking over from Councillor Anne Meadows, a Labour member. He will welcome major conferences to the Brighton Centre such as the 8,000 Liberal Democrats holding their annual gathering here in September. He might hand out the trophies and certificates to youngsters at say, a youth group’s annual prizegiving. He will open new buildings, greet official visitors and eat dozens of buffet meals, lunches and dinners. It remains a largely ceremonial post.

REFERENDUM REJECTION Not all our councillors are so keen on the new arrangements. Graham Cox, a Conservative and the most recently elected member, told the meeting that approved the return of committees: “I’m probably in a minority here. I actually voted for an elected mayor when I had the opportunity and I think Lord Bassam would have made a good elected mayor. Councillor Theobald

would make a good elected mayor. I think Councillor Kitcat would probably make a good elected mayor too.” While Geoffrey Theobald was an obvious candidate for his praise as a fellow Tory, his plaudits for Labour’s Lord Bassam and Jason Kitcat of the Green Party surprised some in the chamber. But 62 per cent of those who voted in the referendum in Brighton and Hove rejected the idea of concentrating power in the hands of one individual, no matter how talented. Less than two weeks ago ten more big cities put the policy to the test at the government’s behest. And in nine of those cities voters turned down the change. Few cities have embraced the idea. One of those that has – Liverpool – dispensed with one of the more troublesome aspects of democracy and didn’t even bother with a referendum.

GULLY FOR MAYOR? In Hartlepool, the result of the first mayoral election in 2002 was a triumph for the local equivalent of Brighton & Hove Albion’s mascot, Gully. It was won by H’Angus the Monkey after he deployed gorilla tactics – in the form of “free bananas”. Mind you, the man in the monkey suit has since been elected a third time, giving some politicians food for thought. And while most have welcomed the return of the committee system to Brighton and Hove, the way that they will work is not without its critics. Councillor Theobald, who leads the opposition Conservative group on the council, accused the Greens of rigging the numbers. The Greens have 23 of the 54 seats on the council. But despite being a minority administration, the party has a majority on the key committees, with the blessing of Labour. The reasoning is that this will enable it to conduct council business more effectively and get things done more efficiently. Councillor Theobald said that previous minority administrations – Conservative and Labour – carved up the committees fairly and in proportion to the total number of seats held by the different parties. Each party achieved policy goals, he said, despite lacking a majority on committees. He called for his Green rivals to show a greater respect for the principles of democracy, adding: “This is an important point.”

BRIGHTON’S FIRST GREEN FIRST CITIZEN So what can we expect from the first Green Mayor of Brighton and Hove? One key prospect is a lack of party politics. Whoever takes the role is supposed to be neutral – like the Speaker in the House of Commons – or above the political fray rather like the Queen. That’s a big ask for people who have often spent a lifetime spinning the party line. Just ask Pat Hawkes, the former Labour councillor who was Mayor of Brighton when the Conservatives returned for their annual conference in 1988. It was the Tories’ first time in town since the Grand Hotel bombing. Her critical remarks coloured the official welcome and prompted booing in the Brighton Centre.

FORMAL YET INFORMAL When he steps down as leader of the council, Councillor Randall intends becoming a model first citizen – but with some subtle differences. Although the role is steeped in tradition – just check out the Mayor’s chains and formal robes – Councillor Randall is expected to adapt some of the mayoral customs. He emphasised that this was in no way intended as a criticism of those who had held the post before him. As well as accepting many of the invitations that pour in to the Mayor’s office, he is expected to highlight particular causes and organisations that are dear to his heart. He will aim to avoid campaigning in the conventional sense. But he hopes to use his position positively while steering clear of party political controversy.

“It’s like being Doctor Who. The role remains the same no matter who plays it” LESS CHRISTIANITY AND CARBON The mayor chairs the meetings of the full council and traditionally the mayor’s chaplain says prayers at the start of proceedings. Councillor Randall does not intend to appoint a chaplain for the year. Instead he intends to invite representatives of various religions to share the equivalent of a civic ‘thought for the day’. He said recently that although he’s not religious, he’s not anti-Christian either. But he does hope to reflect some of the diversity of Brighton and Hove in an appropriate way. His choice of charities underlines his interest in children and the vulnerable. He’s chosen The Martlet’s, the LGBT youth project Allsorts and Brighton Women’s Centre. The fundraising mayoral dinner usually held at Christmas could well turn into a different sort of function – perhaps replaced by a party for the less fortunate. It will be interesting to see whether councillors or senior officers play a part in reviving an old custom – where the bosses wait on the workers, or in this case, those discernibly less fortunate. And while the Greens included the sale of the mayor’s CD1 numberplate in their budget this year, don’t be surprised to see the mayor’s car up for sale too. Or at least being replaced by an even greener machine. The hybrid Prius may not be green enough. The new mayor is likely to be taken to and from engagements in an electric car.

STRIKING A BALANCE So we can expect a new twist on some old customs but carried off with respect for a role that the Greens previously seemed not to hold in particularly high regard. Modern mayors need a formidable mix of formality and informality – and the judgment to decide which is required at any given moment. Few would doubt Councillor Randall’s capacity for dignity. But it will take every wile of a veteran politician to keep all shades of opinion happy in a council chamber split three ways. He has though already shown a capacity for inclusiveness across the political divide while serving as leader and a generosity of spirit in giving credit where it’s due to his political opponents. These traits will stand him in good stead as he brings his own understated style to serving in his new symbolic role. ■ Mayor Anne Meadows tested a mobility scooter on Brighton's streets with Chris Kift

COUNCILLOR ANNE MEADOWS – MAYOR OF BRIGHTON AND HOVE “I’ve loved being mayor. It’s like being Doctor Who. The role remains the same no matter who plays it. I didn’t think of that line – I’m swiping it from the High Sheriff! But it has truly been an incredible year. “You hide your own politics and let the city speak through you. I’m just so proud that the city I was born and brought up in, I’ve been able to represent. All the early mornings and late nights have been worth it. It’s hard work but it is worth it. Everywhere you go people are so pleased to see you. “I’ve learnt an awful lot. I’d been a councillor for 17 years when I became mayor and I thought I knew quite a bit about Brighton and Hove. As a councillor you get to know a lot of what goes on in your ward. To see that replicated right across the city is quite amazing. “It’s been an incredible and quite humbling experience. There are just so many voluntary groups and organisations out there. I’ve made it my mission to invite as many of them as possible to the Mayor’s parlour for tea. “I’ve given out certificates to Cubs and Scouts. I’ve met centenarians and small children. I’ve waved off floats at Pride and I went along to Student Pride. I’ve met older people’s groups in places like Hangleton and Portslade. I’ve welcomed royalty. I’ve never really met the rich and famous before. “Doing the memorial and remembrance services has been fantastic. When the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment came marching through the streets, that was an amazing experience. (They had just returned from a tour of duty in Afghanistan.) I had to make a speech and the crowd were clapping. It was an amazing experience. “I love dressing up. I’ve been joking that I’m going to get the chain photographed and put on a T-shirt. And when I get withdrawal symptoms, I’ll go and put it on. “Everywhere you go, people offer you cake and a cup of tea. I take the tea but I’ve had to try really hard not to always take the cake. Mind you, you never know when you’re going to eat. One day I had to go round 12 bowling clubs at the start of the season and each one offered me a glass of sherry. You want to be polite but as the day went on I had to refuse or I’d have been sozzled. “I’m sure Bill [Randall – who takes over the role this week] will embrace being mayor. The more you put in, the more you get out of it. It’s an amazing experience and I hope he enjoys it.”

BRIGHTON’S UNOFFICIAL MAYOR Mayor Anne Meadows introduced comedian Terry Garoghan as he came on to the stage at the Dome at the start of the last ever Brighton – The Musical. And she did so with a rhyme that she’d written especially for the occasion. Her verse tribute to Terry who is known affectionately as Brighton’s Unofficial Mayor – or BUM for short – had a packed house laughing before he had a chance to break into his first comic song. She said: “He really truly didn’t know what I was going to say. In the wings he asked me if I was all right. I told him not to worry about me. He didn’t have a clue that I’d written a rhyme. But you couldn’t introduce Terry in an ordinary way!” He escorted Anne to her seat after she earned the first laughs of the evening. But not before he trouped her round the stalls to affectionate cheers and applause. He has since supported Anne at an event for her mayoral charities – the Sussex Beacon, Rise and the Fed Centre for Independent Living. She has also enjoyed the support all year of her husband Tony and teenage sons Harry and Scott.

Inside Britain’s Got Talent

This week Bill Smith hands his column over to Britain’s Got Talent star Lynn Ruth Miller for an inside look at the ITV1 show. It’s got laughter, it's got tears... it's got Simon Cowell

E

very now and then, opportunity knocks on your door in mysterious ways. If you ask me to do just about anything that won’t put me in traction or murder an innocent bystander, I’ll give it a go. I was cracking rude one-liners in Edinburgh for my one woman show last August when a young, unbelievably enthusiastic girl smiled at me and said, “How would you like to try out for Britain’s Got Talent?” “When do you want me?” I said. It was that devil-may-care attitude that took me back to Edinburgh for the first round of try-outs in October.

Round one I realised the process was a bit of a soap opera and the purpose was to create a balanced TV show with a pre-decided proportion of singers, dancers, novelty acts and several “tear your heart out” stories. I hobnobbed with a band of Glaswegians in kilts with brilliant red, green and blue hair and a fantastic attitude, three girls who

thought they were the second millennium version of The Andrew Sisters, and Stuart Crout who invented a combination ukulele, guitar, piano and banjo all in one and had practised his craft on the streets of Edinburgh since he was 11 years old. The initial weeding out process is not done by the stars we see pushing buzzers on our TV screen. The film crew create two minute clips for the producers. It is these people who spend several months deciding who they want for each sequence. At this stage the best part is that no-one knows that day if they made the grade. That way, the decision comes on your computer where you can absorb it in your own way. In America they loved to film you dissolved in tears.

Round two I found out in late January that I had made the first cut and was asked to return for an exceptionally long day to meet the judges. We were allowed

“I realised how the people in Paris felt during their revolution as they waited in line at the guillotine”

to bring four friends to cheer us on. I am from another country and of a certain age; the few friends I have here are in their dotage and do not have the stamina for a 10-12 hour day. I do have a smattering of young ones and one brought me a sandwich to sustain me. Her reward was Simon Cowell’s autograph.

Round three The performers are whittled down to the top 20 or so in each city where the try-outs took place. The highlight of the afternoon for me was meeting Stephen Mulhern. We bantered back and forth and I agreed to be his gran. We decided if I actually won I would buy him a house and, you know, I would have done it. He is charming. When our big moment arrived, we sat in a long, airless hall behind the stage and waited to meet the judges. We heard one performer after another buzzed off the stage and I realised how the people in Paris felt during their revolution as they waited in line at the guillotine. I thought: “I will never get through this. Why on earth did I set myself up for this kind of public rejection?” I did my two minutes and to my amazement, no-one buzzed me. Simon Cowell told me in no uncertain terms that I bored him. Was he acting? Did he mean it? I will never know. Alesha Dixon pointed out that it was unusual to have a performer my age on the programme. The three, Alesha along with Amanda Holden and David Walliams voted for me and I got through!

Eliminated The next phase took place at the end of February in London. There were about 100 acts from all over the country, the top winners from all the previous try-outs. At 5.30pm that day, I was ushered into a room with the four judges and Amanda Holden told us we were eliminated. She was very gracious and kind but for the other two in that room with me she could have just as well thrust a knife into their hearts, the effect was the same. The young girl with me was devastated and sobbed for the next hour. I tried to console her but there was no way to stop those tears. I looked at this child, barely 17 years old, who labelled herself as a failure and I knew then that despite the entertainment value of the programme, its cost was far too high to those who lose and even higher for those who make it to the top only to realise that the top goes nowhere. I am in Brighton now and I cannot count the number of people who have stopped me on the street to ask, “Are you the lady I saw on Britain’s Got Talent?” The truth is that I am wallowing in even more fame than I expected without getting anywhere near the top. What can be better than that? Lynn Ruth Miller now presents a daily TV show Festival!, the guide to the best of Brighton Festival and Brighton Fringe. Watch it at thelatest.tv ■

14 SNAP SHOTS

Snap Shots Photographer Diana Frangi captures the faces and places that define our city. This week: Only In Brighton’s Ric Morris

Only In Brighton is a walking tour that celebrates all that is interesting and unusual about the city. It’s a curiously fact-filled, tongue-in-cheek look at Brighton. How many people know that George Everest – who gave his name to the mountain – is buried in Hove? Or that a song performed at the Brighton Dome helped trigger the Portuguese Revolution? Brighton has so much that is distinctive, everybody can find out something about it they didn’t know before.

Ric Morris has been a qualified Blue Badge Guide for 11 years and runs tours in Brighton and Soho. He has a fun and unique walking tour, ‘Only In Brighton’, which started last year during the Brighton Fringe. It was so popular that Ric decided to continue it throughout the summer. This year it has been revamped with a new route and designed to appeal to both locals and visitors. Only In Brighton runs every Thursday to Saturday throughout May at 7pm from outside Al Duomo restaurant. It costs £7 and there is no need to book. www.onlyinbrighton.co.uk

The Brighton hip-hop duo, Jordan Stephens and Harley AlexanderSule, both 20, put their support behind children’s charity Rockinghorse by officially opening its new adolescent rooms at the hospital. The project, which cost £8,250, included the refurbishment of three rooms with comfortable sofas and chairs, DVD players, table football, game consoles, and a pool table. Children and young people played on the equipment with Rizzle Kicks, before the famous pair went on to meet and have their photos taken with other children staying on the wards. Jordan said: “It’s important to have a space to be away from medical procedures, especially if you’re young and in hospital. It was really cool to meet some of the children here – they were all lovely.”

JUNK ART

A Brighton art installation hit the headlines last week when artist David Batchelor unveiled his latest work ‘Skip’ outside Moshi Moshi as part of Brighton Festival. Quickly snapped by national newspapers including The Mirror and The Daily Mail, Batchelor’s piece soon caused a very public divide over whether this was truly art, or just (literally) a load of rubbish. The skip, adorned with a neon yellow rim, is hoped to provoke opinion and to make people ‘stop and think’ according to show curators, and it certainly has!

Last week I took my family to see Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson’s show at The Dome.

id you here the one about the man that walked into a joke shop? He came out with more tricks up his sleeve than a court jester at a Magic Circle initiation. There’s a new shop in Brighton that takes me back to my childhood, the days when stuffed handkerchiefs into my fist would instantaneously disappear and filled wine glasses didn't ever spill a drop when dangled upside down. The shop is called Frighton and it’s run by Doctor Simpo. It’s a Brighton location and purveyors of all things that are fun-tastic. But this is not just any ordinary shop, it’s stacked with weird freaky stuff and accidentally knocking a chewing gum finger trap off the shelf is part of the intimate experience of Dr Simpo, who can be found if you look hard

enough, through the stacks of jokes, tricks and fancy dress, sat behind his counter in another portal wearing a huge pink wig with bones sticking out of it. Enter at your own peril, leave at Brighton’s peril. Spud guns! Remember those? I’m hiring a combo consisting of Zippy’s head, an astronaut’s body and Emu legs. What the hell for? Watch this space... BTW, drop into Frighton during the May festivals where I will be telling the world’s longest single joke. TBA on Facebook.

HANDYANDY Award-winning director, producer, writer and performer, known for current hit Outnumbered and classic oldie Drop The Dead Donkey, Andy Hamilton talks comedy with Victoria Nangle

You’ve been in the comedy world for like, forever... “Yeah, well... Why? Where’s this going? You’re making me feel old!” No, no not at all. You’ve just got so many different comedy hats. What was the first one that you put on? “Well, I suppose if someone held a gun to my head and said you can only do one well that would be writing. In the days where you had your occupation on your passport, that’s what it said, writer. That is essentially what I am. I’m a writer who likes to perform sometimes. So that’s probably how I see myself.” How did you get into it? “Um... I drifted into it really. I was leaving university, I hadn’t really worked out what I was going to do, but I’d been writing some sketches and stuff for stage shows, and a BBC producer saw one of them and said ‘are you sort of writing for a living?’ And I said ‘not really’, so he encouraged me to go along to BBC radio and submit material, and gradually I started to get stuff on and from there I began. It wasn’t a grand plan.” Is there a grand plan now? “No!” Because you are a bit of a comic Svengali... “Am I?” Well, you have done an awful lot of comedy shows. I was re-watching Chelmsford 123 the other day... “Crikey! When I was a druid! Yes, that was written by my friends Jimmy [Mulville] and Rory [McGrath] and I used to produce them in a show called Who Dare’s Wins, so I was forever making them get up at five in the morning to put on, you know, extravagant make-up and stuff – and I think that was their revenge. Put me in a very itchy sort of costume, and made me disembowel animals and stuff!” One of my favourite shows was Drop The Dead Donkey, which stopped at its height. At what point do you decide to stop making a show, despite demand? “That’s a really interesting question actually, which I don’t often get asked! That show I wrote with Guy Jenkins, and I suppose we do it by a kind of instinct really, you know? I mean, what we wanted to do with Drop The Dead Donkey – we did a lot of shows, we did getting on 70 shows, that was nine years I think, and we just thought, we wanna be in a position where we end it rather than one day a broadcaster turns around and says, you know, actually we don’t want any more. So we wanted to do a series where we sent all the characters off into the sunset and actually did it properly. So you just do it by instinct, and you just feel when the moment is right...” Very brave... “Well, it’s not that brave because what you’re doing is you’re trying to head off the point. You’re trying to avoid the moment where people have got a bit

bored with you. So it’s no braver than leaving a party before peoples eyes glaze over.” So what’s happening with Outnumbered now? “Outnumbered? We are doing a Christmas special. We’re filming that in November, which will be... cold! And hopefully doing another lot next year.”

“If I didn't invent all

these ideas in comedy, I’d probably be a serial killer or something”

There was a rumour last year, that there was going to be a TV show of your Radio 4 series Old Harry’s Game. Is that likely to happen? “No. Well, I can imagine how the rumour got out. We did a little sample for Sky, of an animated plasticine version, you know, like a claymation, and that sort of leaked out of someone’s press department prematurely so it was only ever a sample I was writing for them and they passed on it, which was fair enough. We were very pleased with it but I think that’s probably not going to happen now. It’s quite problematic, animation. It’s quite hard to place it with a broadcaster so, at the moment I haven’t got any plans to try and televise it, no. ” Will there be another series of it? “Yeah, we’re doing an Olympic special. A two-parter, recording that in July. Although I’m not sure if we can mention the word ‘Olympics’, as that’s owned by the Olympics. but basically Satan gets involved with the Olympics, yeah.”

L7 INTERVIEW

19

Old Harry’s Game and last year’s Searching for Satan have got a strong ideological and philosophical sense. It feels like you’re using Shakespeare’s tool of pointing out the truth with laughter... “Well, certainly, it irritates me when sometimes people say or talk about something like: ‘Oh it’s just a comedy!’. Comedy is always been used to convey big ideas and in many ways it’s a better medium for conveying big ideas because people are more welcoming. They don’t resist it. Whereas if they think you’re trying to give them a lecture, they will resist it. So yeah, I think probably, on a personal level, if I didn’t invent all these ideas in comedy, I’d probably be a serial killer or something, I’d probably go on a killing spree. I think it’s a kind of a safety valve. I’d better ask you about the show! What is the Hat of Doom? “The Hat Of Doom? The hat is a hat with lots of bits of paper in it, and on the bits of paper are various topics on stuff, so it’s largely dictated by what the audience draws out of the hat. I go around with the hat and then the audience picks stuff out. And in the second half – in the interval I ask the audience for the questions on the stage, written on bits of paper for me – so, most of the second half is built around things that the audience ask me. So it’s always different each night, you never find two nights the same. And there’s stories and jokes and me larking around, bits of audience participation and singing and all sorts. Bit of everything!” What’s the last thing that made you laugh a ridiculous amount? “Ooh, well the North Korean missile made me laugh quite a lot. You know, the missile that they sent up that fell apart? Well, it just fell over basically. It just fell over. That did make me laugh. I mean, I know I shouldn’t, because it’s a terrifying prospect that you’ve got a mad nuclear superpower, a mad nuclear power that’s been humiliated, but it did make me laugh.” Andy Hamilton – Hat Of Doom, Pavilion Theatre, Worthing, Thursday 17 May, £17.50/16

ANDREW KAY’S FOOD & DRINK

Food & Drink Andrew Kay enjoys the adventurous menu from the new team at The Cuthbert Pub & Kitchen

Perfect pigeon O

pen a menu in Greece, any menu, and the content will be much the same, the same applies in Morocco and Tunisia, they all do pretty much the same dishes to differing degrees of success. It happens with many national cuisines, there appear to be regulation dishes that must be offered. The same is not so here in the UK. After years in the culinary wilderness, British food has emerged, swan like, as a shining example of what the culinary world can offer. Swan like may be too pure a thought, after all, the emergence of a modern British cuisine is so much made up of different international influences, so it’s a bastard swan, a half breed – but one of increasing beauty. Offer the menu challenge in any UK restaurant of note and you will find massive differences. Okay, the usual suspects, the fads and fashions will be there, but not all of them – well not often. I was hesitant to visit The Cuthbert too soon, I rather like a place to settle in, but when I heard where the new proprietors were from I jumped at the chance. I remember The Cuthbert when it was a boozer with a bar billiard table, more recently a place which seemed to always be closed. Now it’s back, old name in place and a rather interesting new look. Imagine shabby chic, then take away anything resembling a real or a fake antique, anything painted with crackled paint and banish the Farrow and Ball colour chart. Okay, now insert 1950’s kitchenalia, printed tea towels and cross-over pinnies, colours plucked from a 1961 Dulux chart and a nice slice of kitchen sink dram and you will be close. I loved it, it took me back to my childhood. Fortunately the menu did not. Here were dishes that left me bewildered, spoiled for choice – and not just the savoury dishes, I would happily have eaten the pudding menu from start to finish, I did not (but I was tempted). So with a much appreciated G&T in hand we set off. First though a salt cod brandade, crumbed and fried and spiked ready to eat, delicious. Mr R made a beeline for the crispy pigs cheek. I was tempted too and have to say that it was extremely good and very generous too. I looked on with envy until my Pigeon arrived. I love pigeon and have always hankered after a good Moroccan pastilla – but never had one, here or there. This was a dish inspired by the North African original, but so much better. Two succulently rare pan fried breasts, a leg, a tiny pie of spiced fruits and some bulgur wheat. As with King George V (bugger Bognor) I would apply the same sentiment to bulgur, or until now. Now I know that it can taste extremely good, meaty even, filled with spice and fruits and fighting for attention on a plate already filled with muscular flavours. It was a sensational dish and a brilliant start. Mr R took the more staid route of steak and chips next but was delighted by a great piece of meat and some stunning proper chips. I tasted both and the chips are up there with those of a certain Mr HB. The steak was perfectly

cooked, we asked the chef to cook it as he saw fit and it was a good move, and topped with a rich deep green herb butter. I chose the roast cod with Bombay potatoes and spicy leeks with a coriander bhaji. Once again global influences but not in a gimmicky way but rather more respectful and refined. The fish was superb, pearly white and cooked with precision, the side dishes were great too, good spicing but too much to cover the sweet fish. Four dishes in and an amuse bouche of note and not one disappointment. So on to puds and a real dilemma. In all seriousness I could have scoffed the lot, pure greed, not hunger, the food was not only refined it was generous too. In the end Mr R chose a parfait with cinnamon doughnuts and I chose orange and honey creme brulee with rhubarb and sugar cakes. I wanted the poached pear with blue cheese too but decided it was a course too far. Now Mr R likes a pud and this one put the biggest of grins on his face, especially when he discovered that the doughnuts were filled with pistachio cream. His face was a picture of fulfilment. My brûlée hit the same high spot, a perfect custard, crystal sharp caramel and a hint of honey and orange with a small dish of hot rhubarb on the side and two rich brown sugar biscuits. How I grinned. We drank a bottle of good Tempranillo and finished with coffee. And not content to end there the chef sent out two whiskey sour jellies. I loved it but Mr R said it had a taste of Cherry Blossom polish. The Cuthbert is sensibly priced with main courses from £9.50 to £17 and the rest in proportion to that. I cannot wait to go back and very soon. The Cuthbert Pub & Kitchen, 136 Freshfield Road, Brighton, 01273 699693 www.thecuthbertpubandkitchen.co.uk

Allplay Tennis

GAME, SET & MATCH

With Wimbledon just around the corner, Latest 7 celebrates Britain’s love of tennis

Allplay Tennis is a national campaign brought to you by the Lawn Tennis Association to encourage more people play tennis. An important part of the campaign is www.allplaytennis.com which helps people find a local court, find people to play with, or find a local coach to help them with their game. The site launched in June 2011 and there are already over 7,500 people looking for people to play tennis with. Brighton and Hove is no different and with great choice of park courts across the city, now is a great time to dust off your racket or pick one up for the first time! Register now for free on the website and find out where you can play in Brighton and Hove.

t’s the summer sport us Brits love to watch on the box! Football is given a rest between seasons (except for Euro 2012!) and our thoughts turn to tennis at Wimbledon and everything that entails: whiter than white whites, carful brand marketing, strawberries and cream, and rain. Stereotypes aside, the return of Wimbledon also inspires us to pick up our own racket and loudcoloured ball and hit the court/park/garden. Okay, we may not match (or even be close to) the playing standards of 2011 Wimbledon winners Novak Djokovic and Petra Kvitova, but tennis is a great keep-fit activity and, if you start young, you may find a career you love and Wimbledon may beckon! An hour of tennis can burn over 300 calories – it sure beats sweating it out in the gym and it’s a great way to socialise and have fun at the same time. Keeping your eye on the ball can also improve balance, concentration and agility, while running around the courts will give health and fitness a boost too! What’s not to love? Luckily, here in Brighton we have everything for the perfect game: start with the right racket, which is where Nick Rivett Sport comes in. Find a playing partner or ideal venue with Allplay Tennis. For kids, Tennis Tigers is great for budding Roger Federer’s. Then, take a break from the game and enjoy the hotly anticipated AEGON International event over in Eastbourne. That leaves just enough time to relax before the fun of Wimbledon! ‘Love’ is definitely an appropriate word when it comes to tennis.

Tennis Tigers There is always a look of confusion on a parent’s face when you tell them that you can teach a child to be a competitive tennis player when they are as young as seven. Yes, they may play on a badminton court with a slightly lower net and yes, the balls may be softer, larger and easier to hit but they are competing nonetheless. Tennis Tigers introduces young children to tennis. The company both teaches and runs tournaments for the under tens. Coach and director of Tennis Tigers, Vanessa Nickerson, says: “Teaching this age group requires a special kind of teacher because it’s not an easy thing to do.  Our coaches need strong, positive personalities and an ability to understand and relate to young  children.” So, what is the result of the Tennis Tigers programme? A hundred children under ten years old play tennis throughout the week in the Preston Park area. Children from Brighton College, Downs and Stanford infants benefit from the Tennis Tigers coaching programme. “What really makes this programme work are the tournaments,” says Vanessa. “Fifty children are now signed up with the LTA as competitive tennis players.” If you think about it, this is quite an achievement, both for the Tigers and the children involved. Even better, you can see them in action in Preston Park each weekend morning. The tournaments are held on the last Sunday of each month in Preston Park, with the next one falling on 27 May at 2pm. If you have a child who is under ten years old then they should consider joining the Tennis Tigers programme. All abilities are welcome! To join this summer, please contact Tennis Tigers on 07531 879 404 or email vanessa@tennistigers.co.uk, www.tennistigers.co.uk

Nick Rivett Sport “The fifth set is not about the tennis, it’s about the nerves” said Boris Becker. At Nick Rivett Sport they are tennis crazy! They regularly test all tennis rackets they sell so they can give you impartial and personal advice based on game play and not what the manufacturers tell you in the hype! Nick Rivett Sport offers a comprehensive tennis racket, clothing and footwear range. They stock a full range from Babolat, Wilson, Head, Prince, Yonex, Tecnifibre and Dunlop. They also sell junior rackets from 17” to 26” to cater for all abilities. Their try before you buy service allows you to test the tennis rackets in your own time. For a small fee you can discuss your needs with the team and they will loan you up to three rackets for up to one week. Nick Rivett Sport has become established as the number one racket stringers in Brighton and Hove. They string regularly through the week, often with a same day turn around. The shop also has a superb relationships with local tennis clubs and coaches, and staff are always on hand to recommend the best club/coach for you. They are also happy to arrange racket demo days at tennis clubs, so please get in touch if this is of interest.

DECONSTRUCTED HAMLET DREAMTHINKSPEAK: THE REST IS SILENCE, Malthouse Estate Warehouse, 5 May ✪✪✪✪✪

N

ot knowing what to expect from Tristan Sharps is part of the excitement. His fertile brain always seems to deliver something breathtakingly new and this year is no exception. After the huge acclaim for Before I Sleep in 2010 expectations were riding high. Could they pull off a success on such an epic scale once again? The answer is yes – but not by following on, far from it. This time Sharps gives us an almost cinematic experience, a Hamlet that takes the original script and carves it up to give it a tough, modernity whilst still using the beauty of the original language. Set in a brutally minimal world of Scandinavian modernism, the set imprisons the audience on all four sides. Captive and captivated at the same time, visually challenged by activity all around and on varying levels, some film, some real. The sound has a clipped quality, the mirrored windows isolating us from the real voices and speakers delivering them to us as we move around the room. The story unfolds in a literal sense too, this time we are not expected to wander and make of it what we will. Instead we are confronted, affronted even by it. Claudius is the coolest politico, suave, suited and sinister, all smiles and insincerity. Gertrude is chillingly played with more than a hint of Cherie Blair about her. Polonius is a pompous, obsessing prig but no fool. Ophelia sinks into madness with ease as the intensity and lunacy builds to breaking point. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are public school buffoons and Laertes the city slicker bent on revenge. The ghost of the King looms threateningly in and out of the action in both projection and reality, his presence affecting every character. And through all this Hamlet broods, his mood darkening by the moment, the plot unravelling with the glowering bleakness of a Danish crime novel. Sharp gives us his signature visual trickery of course, but this time it is delivered as a side dish to an explosively revealing dissection of Hamlet that proves that as a director of real theatre he is a force to be reckoned with. Possibly the most disquieting two hours of theatre I have ever experienced and without doubt some of the best. Andrew Kay

ONLY IN BRIGHTON

Ric Morris’ tongue in cheek tour proves one thing: Brighton is unique. And, whether you’re a visitor or resident, we can all learn something new. We saw the city in a different light, as we were led from the Royal Pavilion across Brighton, ending up on Brighton beach. We paused for thought at landmarks we pass by every day without a second glance. From the history lesson of King George IV to the arrival of Tuaca on our shores (more recent than you may think!) to the businesses that made a difference (The Body Shop and Ben Sherman), this was funny, entertaining and well informed. What’s Brighton famous for? Lots. This tour is the ideal way to find out;

FOIL, ARMS AND HOG

As it turns out the stereotype is totally true: all Irish people are funny. If you don’t believe me, then you clearly haven’t seen Foil, Arms and Hog (yes, all three of them). Playing to a packed crowd, it took all of 30 seconds to kick start the first barrels of laughter. Performing their last show of the Fringe, they went out with a high as they blazed through their ever-more ridiculous sketches. Avoiding most stereotypes like drinking, potatoes and leprechauns, a sketch involving dysfunctional vicars was perhaps a bit too easy. However there wasn’t one joke I didn’t laugh at. If only TV sketch shows were this funny. Absolutely hilarious! Upstairs At Three And Ten, 7 May ✪✪✪✪✪ Woodrow Whyte

VANESSA REDGRAVE – A LIFE IN FILM

As elegant as ever Redgrave took the stage and held the audience for nearly two hours in which she never once resorted to humorous anecdote. Instead she talked about her art, her work as an actress and the fact that film had influenced her stage work rather than vice versa. Above all she believes that it is the role of the actor or actress, a word she insists is correct, to follow the director and do as one is told. It was not that the evening was without humour, she is immensely modest, self deprecating even. Of course the audience had a few who were their for political reasons, obviously misreading the title of the event. One asked if she had a message for President Obama relating to a political issue. Redgrave’s answer was succinct, “No, I’m sorry, I do not”. Well done to her for such an elegant put down. Concet Hall, Brighton Dome, 5 May ✪✪✪✪✪ Andrew Kay

CHAP HOP HOORAH!

The inimitable Mr B is a Brighton stalwart and one of the earliest proponents of Chap Hop (Hip-Hop with better diction). Having been fans for many years, this was the first time we’d actually seen him live

and we weren’t disappointed. The charismatic “Gentleman Rhymer” delighted the audience with several medleys covering the history of rap, acid house and the “Madchester” sound, whilst interspersing his own compositional classics such as ‘More Kissing in Porn Please, We’re British’ and ‘Hail the Chap’. But with a new CD out, The Tweed Album, there was a pleasantly surprising amount of new material in the show, riffing on Beatles’ later material. Komedia, 8 May ✪✪✪✪✪ Tirimasu

THE CITY WILL CRUMBLE

Although posted as a comment on the isolating nature of city life and the effect of the current economic situation on the populous, The City Will Crumble is strongest dealing with the personal rather than the socioeconomic. One scene in particular between the blogger protagonist Leda (Mariana Targano) and a policeman (Diego Poupin) is brutal but nuanced and layered, choreographed and performed to perfection. Indeed the dance and original music is strong throughout. However some of the multimedia elements err to the obvious and the production can’t quite muster the scale to deliver on its ambitious premise. The Warren, 9 May ✪✪✪✪✪ Simon Plotkin

LAUGHING HORSE – MERYL O'ROURKE – BAD MOTHER

A TRIBUTE TO GIL SCOTT-HERON

Musical hero Gil Scott-Heron died last May, and in this tribute publisher Jamie Byng, poet and host for the evening Lemn Sissay, writer/poet Salena Godden and ex-Magazine and Nick Cave bassist and film director Barry Adamson celebrated the life of this intelligent, spiritual yet troubled man, ahead of the publication of his self-written memoirs, The Last Holiday. A somewhat haphazard evening, that mirrored the sometimes haphazard yet endearing nature of Scott-Heron’s live performances, wasn’t helped by Sissay’s occasional lack of knowledge and his sometimes stuttering style of presenting. However, along with Godden, he delivered a superbly articulated spoken word performance of one of Scott-Heron’s greatest songs ‘BMovie’. And along with the beautifully shot clips of Scott-Heron performing for the camera in the last year of his life, and Adamson’s reworking of a number of songs from Scott-Heron’s last album, the evening just about flowed and enlightened.

It is said that humour comes from truth, and there can’t be anything more truthful than family relations. Meryl O'Rourke's show roots out gems from her unusual family background, her Jewish mother arriving in London as a refugee from Hitler’s persecution, her father's Irish Catholic rebellion against his own upbringing, and Meryl’s own quirky pearls of wisdom she would like to pass on to her own daughter. It's true, and it's so well crafted it's also very funny.

STAGE: BOURNE AGAIN Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures dance company bring Early Adventures to the Theatre Royal Brighton

P

robably best known for his remarkable all male reworking of Swan Lake, this year’s festival will host Spitfire, Town and Country and The Infernal Galop, the triple bill of the works that launched Bourne’s career and cemented New Adventures reputation for wit, style and sheer entertainment. Matthew Bourne has assembled an impressive cast of experienced New Adventures stars and exciting young talent. The company will be Kerry Biggin, who created the role of Kim in Bourne’s Edward Scissorhands, Tom Jackson Greaves direct from the current tour of Nutcracker, James Leece returns to the company having performed the role of Johnny in Dirty Dancing in the West End, Kate Lyons made her New Adventures debut in Cinderella and has recently been seen in Nutcracker! Drew McOnie was a memorable competitor in the first series of BBC’s So You Think You Can Dance, Christopher Marney was last seen as The Angel in Cinderella, Dominic North has appeared in more New Adventures productions than any other performer, Mikah Smillie has shown her versatility with New Adventures in a variety of leading roles and Joe Walkling made his debut with the company in the original cast of Dorian Gray. Bourne’s work has built a bridge between the high art of the dance world and the commercial theatre that for years now have embraced conventional dance audiences and attracted new ones with works like Highland Fling, Swan Lake, Nutcracker! and The Car Man. Whilst having an obvious talent to amuse his choreography is never anything less than exhilarating, demanding excellence for his company at all times.

Town And Country

Matthew Bourne said; “Early Adventures sees the company return to its roots to help celebrate our 25th anniversary. All of the pieces on this programme were created with a desire to entertain and to share some of the music and cultural icons that I grew up loving.” Spitfire was Bourne’s first hit in 1988. Both a celebration of masculine vanity and an affectionate comment on the preening grandeur of the classical male dancer. It hilariously places the most famous 19th century ballet showstopper in the world of men’s underwear advertising and mail order catalogue photography. Town and Country – Remembered as the piece that most crystallised the Bourne style; gloriously witty and ironic but also strangely moving and heartfelt. It explores notions of national character from a bygone era through the evocative music of Edward Elgar, Noel Coward

TOTALLY COMPREHENSIVE!

and Percy Grainger, amongst others. This 1991 two part dance revue features a high speed version of the classic film, Brief Encounter, a furtive meeting between two repressed gents, a jolly clog dance with a violent conclusion, a daringly wild ride on children’s scooters and an eccentric version of ‘Pomp and Circumstance’ played on the ukulele. The Infernal Galop – A breakthrough hit in 1989, this ‘Franglais Spectacular’ was inspired

by icons of France in the 1930s and 1940s; Edith Piaf, Charles Trenet, Tino Rossi, Jacques Tati etc. Through a series of surprising and saucy vignettes this is France as seen by the uptight English imagination with all the traditional clichés joyously paraded for our entertainment and climaxing in Offenbach’s inevitable Can-Can! Matthew Bourne’s Early Adventures Theatre Royal Brighton, Thursday 17 & Friday 18 May, 7.30pm Saturday 19 May, 2.30pm & 7.30pm.

LATEST PREVIEWS MUSIC&CLUBS 31

CLUBS: JUICEBOX Juicing it up on the seafront, bringing you some of Brighton’s finest party starters. DJs on rotation include Eddie The Goatboy, Matatatat, George Nunners and very special guests. Playing songs by the likes of The Strokes, The Cure, Klaxons, LCD Soundsystem, 2ManyDJs, M83, Prince and more. Life, Sat 19 May, 11pm-5am, £3/5 MUSIC: MOUNTAIN FIREWORK COMPANY Led by the lilting Irish tones of Gareth McGathan and supported by a fabulous array of musicians, MFC are simply one of the finest exponents of country blues Americana this country has ever produced. Criminally ignored by much of the alt-country fraternity, they have nevertheless built up a sizeable following despite rare outings. This special Fringe gig will be the platform for their third album. Komedia, Wed 16 May, 8.45pm, £10, 8pm

Island Universal

CLUBS: SECRET DISCOTHEQUE A celebration of the songs that formed the soundtrack to your youth. You learnt the lyrics and the dance moves, and you copied the fashion. Playing the greatest records you forgot about, making you fall in love with them all over again. ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, ’00s, the best songs from your youth. Coalition, Thurs 17 May, 11pm 3.30am, £2/3/4

MUSIC: CAMILLE O’SULLIVAN Popular figure here at festival time, she really made her mark via performances at the much missed Spiegeltent – her theatrical and alluring interpretations of dramatic narrative song (Weill, Cave, Waits, Brel et al) are of the highest quality. All Saints’ Church, Wed 16 & Thurs 17 May, 8pm, £16/£10

MUSIC: HOMAGE TO SANDY DENNY A homage to tragic Sandy Denny comes to the Dome

MUSIC: ELVIS COSTELLO Rare chance to see Declan MacManus with The Imposters. Over the years Costello has hovered above notions of ‘cool’ and ‘cutting edge’, but that was what he most certainly was back in the late 70s/early 80s when classic tunes such as ‘Radio Radio’, ‘Watching The Detectives’, ‘Shipbuilding’ (yes, he wrote it) and ‘Pump It Up’ dominated the airwaves. He’s never let up since, veering from the experimental to the full on rock’n’roll animal inside him. However, at £42.50 don’t expect to see many youngsters. Brighton Centre, Wed 16 May, 7.30pm, £42.50

W

hen artists die young, their oeuvre and image are forever burnished within our sub-consciousness, our memories never to be tarnished by poor recordings or the inevitable ageing process. Hence, the continued deification of Sandy Denny who died aged 31, a woman who endured a torrid last couple of years which included the birth of her only child just a few months before. Sandy Denny suffered a cerebral haemorrhage from tumbling down the stairs of her parents' home in Cornwall in 1978, but even then she was indubitably the First Lady of modern British folk music. The week she died, Kate Bush, then hurtling up the charts with her debut single, ‘Wuthering Heights’, had cited Denny as a formative influence and even name-checked her on the album Never for Ever. Her career really took off when she took over singing duties for Fairport Convention in 1968, the most famous British folk-rock outfit, and even though she was with the group for 18 months, in that time she sang on three of the best albums; What We Did On Our Holidays, Unhalfbricking and their most famous album Liege and Lief. She then formed Fotheringay and released one album, before embarking on a solo career, as well as a turn as guest vocalist on Led Zeppelin’s ‘The Battle of Evermore’. Released on Island, The North Star Grassman and the Ravens, Sandy, Like An Old-Fashioned Waltz and Rendezvous generally combine Denny’s first love of folk with forays into pop and rock, and while patchy affairs, still demonstrate her ability to write outstanding songs to go with that incredible voice. And so Denny’s legacy lives on, gaining momentum particularly in this folk-friendly era we live in. This festival exclusive will feature members of Bellowhead, Maddy Prior, Thae Gilmore, Joan Wasser (Joan As Police Woman), Jerry Donohue, Dave Swarbrick, Lavinia Blackwell, Blair Dunlop, Sam Carter, PP Arnold and others, performing songs form Denny’s career, as well as a number of songs that Thea Gilmore was commissioned by Sandy’s estate to write melodies for – to unrecorded lyrics, that were found in Sandy’s paperwork, and which appeared on Gilmore’s Don’t Stop Singing album last year.

COMEDY: SCOTTISH FALSETTO SOCKS – BOO LINGERIE! Fabric fun and packed full of energy, the Scottish Falsetto Socks are back with a brand new offering

D

espite the low-fi adorability of the sock puppets, this is a show aimed squarely at a comedy audience rather than a family one. Mixing puns, sketches and songs with vaudeville style backchat, this brainchild of Kev F. Sutherland has gathered fans every year since its 2005 inception, going viral on YouTube and generating new material through online shorts at a rate of knots. This latest show from the fluffy heeled ones is billed as a ‘Socky Horror Show’, giving you some clue as to the content and theme of this year’s horror styled fiasco. Promising brand new songs, sketches, socks and violence – as well as zombie socks thrown into the mix – if it’s anything like its predecessors when the Scottish Falsetto Socks Theatre last visited the Brighton Fringe, there will be silliness galore and liberties that positively make you have to laugh and their ridiculousness. All delivered in a high pitched Scottish accent and ping-pong ball eyes. There are two performances of this show, one in the evening and the other handily placed to fill a Sunday afternoon, allowing a splendid time to be had by all, without rinsing you out for the beginning of the working week the next day. Scottish Falsetto Socks – Boo Lingerie! Komedia Studio, Sat 19 May, 7pm and Sun 20 May, 4.30pm, £10/9. follow me on twitter

Invisible Flock – Sea of Voices

FILM: THE DICTATOR (TBC)

Director: Larry Charles

S

acha Baron Cohen reunites with the director Larry Charles who did such a good job with him on previous endeavours – Borat and Bruno, for this third outing of character comedy ambush. This time he appears to be a cross between Saddam Hussein and Colonel Gaddafi, an evil tyrant opposed to democracy in any guise and more than a tad deluded about his own personal talents. At great personal risk General Aladeen (Baron Cohen’s creation) travels to America to keep democracy at bay and his own people lovingly oppressed. As with every Baron Cohen/Charles project, the beauty is bound to be in the detail, as ordinary people and celebrities react – some scripted and some probably not so much – to the many buttons the General pushes in human nature. Also featuring Anna Faris, Megan Fox, Ben Kingsley and John C. Reilly.

STARS With Val Aviv

★ARIES {Mar 21–Apr 20}

The new Moon heralds a time of endless communications, it is possible that you won’t notice it one bit as you are often gabbling with a phone stuck to the side of your face. There’s big financial news to listen out for, with a promise that can change your life.

★TAURUS {Apr 21–May 21}

Have you ever felt so able to absorb information? Have you ever been such a sponge for knowledge? The more you see, the more you understand. Don’t be shy to branch out or aim higher, you’ve never been so capable or lucky as you are now.

★GEMINI {May 22–June 21}

The new Moon in your sign is the perfect opportunity to reinvent yourself and face the world with a fresh attitude. This is your new year so instead of feeling that you’re always walking on empty, you can fly on full!

★CANCER {June 22–July 22}

A time of retreat is calling you from somewhere in your subconscious. You have probably never had such a socially demanding year as this one. There are healthy ways to escape the stresses of your success, try and find one that works for you.

★LEO {July 23–Aug 22}

Friends take precedence and it’s a good time to re-think those dreams and ambitions. You’re not quite the person you were when expansive Jupiter first went into your house of recognition, so now that we see you – what are you going to do next?

★VIRGO {Aug 23–Sep 22}

★SCORPIO {Oct 23–Nov 21}

Sometimes you have to think really big in order to grow beyond your current status. Put some effort into making your dreams a reality. Through your mind, you can change the world and through your will, you can change your mind.

★SAGITTARIUS {Nov 22–Dec 20}

Spending time with new people reminds you to spend time enjoying the lighter side of life. Being of service will hold a lot of merit so don’t forget to see things from the other point of view .

★CAPRICORN {Dec 21–Jan 19}

Communications pick up and it’s not a bad thing. If you’ve found yourself struggling in silence, sometimes a conversation here and a helping hand there, will help you stay on top. Being adventurous in your beliefs is empowering.

★AQUARIUS {Jan 20–Feb 19}

On the quiet you have been silently confronting some of your biggest fears with a positive, can do attitude. You’ll have to feed that desire for uncovering the mysterious side of life and dive in. With your currant vantage point, you can only succeed.

★PISCES {Feb 20–Mar 20}

A spring clean is in order with the new Moon making a tense aspect to the idealist Neptune. Make your home reflect your artistic flair and you’re bound to be glad you did.

tuesday 15 Silk BBC1, 9pm Legal wrangles used to be enough for those in the pretty wigs and authoritative voices, but now it’s got political too. That doesn’t mean that new QC Martha Costello is entering parliament, simply that defending a member of one of Britain’s biggest crime outfits was always going to be tricky. Welcome back.

Sex, Lies And Rinsing Guys Channel 4, 10pm Suffragettes? Anyone ever heard of those? How about being able to support yourself? We suppose this could be shoe-horned into that but we’re certain it’s not what Amelia Pankhurst had in mind. This programme enters the world of ‘mutual relationships’ in which girls use their beauty and charm to get ‘gifts’ from men.

Cardinal Burns E4, 10.30pm More comedy sketches with Seb Cardinal and Dustin Demi Burns. With a title like that you’d expect at least one religious lampooning but no, tonight’s comedic catch of the day covers a class of nobodies learning how to be rock stars, Banksy’s late-night stake out getting his step-son in trouble, and pirate cabby tales.

wednesday 16 Secret Eaters Channel 4, 8pm With being told we’re too big, too skinny, eating too many carbs, all carbs, all protein etc. it can be difficult to decipher exactly the right way to eat these days. Or so it would seem when Anna Richardson visits siblings Jill and Stuart, both desperate to lose weight but certain they’re not eating enough. Tricksy.

The Apprentice BBC1, 9pm Mwah ha ha! Plenty of business pitfalls and traps for the teams to fall into this week as they are given the task of raising awareness of English sparkling wine, with the final test to pitch thier marketing campaigns to discerning wine experts. With half of them ‘testing’ the wine, will they lose focus? Boom! Boom!

The Only Way Is Essex ITV2, 10pm Can you hear the theme tune already? Is it stuck in your head? Good. Just like a song that takes over the charts for a summer (you know who you are Whigfield and Bryan Adams), this just keeps on gathering momentum until it’s stronger than the sum of its parts. Just, instead of a dance it’s got catchphrases. Reem.

thursday 17 The Great Euro Crash With Robert Peston BBC2, 9pm Taking the long view of the euro does not just mean giving it a Paddington Bear stare and tutting at it. Here Robert Peston tracks it from Churchill’s vision of a United States of Europe to the recent bail outs of Greece, Portugal and Ireland, looking at its origins, history and unsteady future.

Grandma’s House BBC2, 10pm Oh, the life of a struggling pseudo celebrity makes cringeworthy, fabulous comedy. Tanya is thrilled that Simon’s comeback to TV has started, albeit with a small interview promoting his play. But an off the cuff comment about an opera singer’s tumour looks to eclipse the thesp in him, thanks to a few popular newspapers.

The Exclusives ITV2, 9pm Another extended job interview programme. We’ve got The Apprentice, we’ve had all of those Saturday night auditions with Lord Lloyd Webber, and now it’s this. Six aspiring journalists compete for the chance to win thier dream job with one of Europe’s largest magazine publishers. Starting at the BRITs.

friday 18 Unreported World Channel 4, 7.30pm With everybody preparing to descend upon Ukraine for this summer’s European football championships, billions has been invested into the infrastructure projects to support the event.

The Mentalist Channel Five, 9pm It’s quite refreshing to have a male/female drama dynamic that doesn’t carry some undercurrent of sexual tension. Lisbon is the big sister to Castle’s mischievous younger bro – affectionately authoritative. So when her former fiancé turns up during an investigation brotherly protection is bound to kick in.

Lip Service BBC3, 9pm The busy, busy lives and loves of this group of Glasgow ladies When Sam makes an unexpected visit to the flat, a wedge is driven between her and her friends.

saturday 19 Off By Heart: Shakespeare BBC2, 9pm Over the last year thousands of Britain’s teenagers have been competing nationwide to learn some of the Bard’s best speeches by heart. Now down to nine finalists aged between 13 and 15, they’re off to workshop with the Royal Shakespeare Company on some of the greatest soliloquies ever. And then the final.

Law And Order: Special Victims Unit Channel Five, 10.40pm You know it’s Channel Five because it’s an evening of non stop crime that’s re-assuringly solved and sorted within the allotted hour. Nice when that happens. The Special Victims Unit are investigating a chap badly beaten outside a strip club with no memory. Cop time!

Sherlock Holmes: The Eligible Bachelor ITV3, 3pm Indubitably Mr Holmes, indubitably. The articulate investigator puts his incredible observational skills to the test enquiring after Lord St Simon, and why he won’t set foot in Glaven Castle. And also why his aunts are certain that his marriage will fail. Indubitably.
