Brighton and Hove will soon have its own terrestrial TV channel which you’ll be able to watch on your TV in your living room and on your laptop or on your mobile. That’s modern democracy. And of course localism, especially news, democracy and political debate, will be a big part of Brighton’s new channel. Question Time on BBC 1 has proved that political TV need not be boring and we believe The Vote Show on thelatest.tv amplifies this. And how could The Vote be boring? New leader of Brighton and Hove Council, The Green Party’s Cllr Jason Kitcat, has been having a well publicised Twitter feud with Labour’s Chief Whip in The House Of Lords, Lord Steve Bassam. For the first time they debate in person and it’s riveting TV. As if that’s not enough they are joined by one of the greatest debaters in The Conservative Party Cllr Mary Mears, and I don’t just mean in Brighton. Bill Randall talks about his year in office as first Green council leader while The Treason Show’s Mark Brailsford looks back at the year that was for The Greens. Frank le Duc does the Dimbleby bit and I know I’m biased but I’m hooked! – Bill Smith, MD, Latest TV If you want to be part of Brighton’s TV channel come to our open democratic meetings at Latest MusicBar every Monday at 5.30pm.

latest brighton & hove news In brief ■ SKATE PARK FOR THE LEVEL GIVEN BACKING BY PLANNING OFFICIALS A planning application for a sunken concrete skate park at The Level is due to be decided by Brighton and Hove City Council’s Planning Committee tomorrow (Wednesday 8 August). A report to councillors backs the plan for a skate park and associated landscaping, which would be to the north of Rose Walk. The report says: “The existing skate park, which is sited to the south of Rose Walk, comprises high wooden structures which date from the 1970s, is an unsightly and poorly maintained element of The Level which detracts from the open space and harms the setting of the listed buildings in Richmond Terrace.” The plans have attracted 70 letters of objection and 157 in support as well as a petition in favour signed by 182 people. The report addresses concerns about the loss of green space by saying more grass will be laid than lost if the skate park is built. The report goes on to say: “The proposed skate park would provide improved and enhanced skating facilities within the city while providing a better balance overall to the northern half of the park. The proposal, by virtue of design through use of sunken levels and low boundaries, would preserve the historic layout of The Level and would ensure that the traditional open space character is retained.”

■ INVENTOR TO HELP TEDX BRIGHTON CONFERENCE RETURN THIS AUTUMN Marc Koska, the Sussex inventor of the non-reusable syringe, is to organise the second TEDx Brighton conference. The free conference will be held on Friday 26 October at the Corn Exchange when 300 people are expected to attend. Last year 100 people attended the first TEDx Brighton at the Sallis Benney Theatre. The all-day independently organised event is intended to offer a series of thought-provoking talks lasting from six to eighteen minutes on the theme of the generation gap. It has been licensed by TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design), the organisation behind the global webcast conferences set up to share ideas worth spreading. Mr Koska, who also set up the Safepoint Trust to educate health workers and the public about safe needle use, said: “TED is a very contemporary and unique forum and to bring it to Brighton in the form of a TEDx is a wonderful challenge. I am looking forward to helping curate an amazing day on the theme of the ‘generation gap’ that will set a new standard in Brighton for vital conversations.”

■ STUDENTS LEAVE GEAR WORTH £4K TO HELP FUND WORK OF YMCA Sussex University students left clothes and electrical goods worth more than £4,000 when they moved out of their campus rooms at the end of the summer term. The university and the Students’ Union have been working together to ensure as much is reused or recycled as possible, minimising the amount destined for landfill. They gave 25 bags of clothes to Sussex Central YMCA as well as 60 electrical items. The charity aims to sell the goods in its charity shops. It said that the money could fund a week’s emergency accommodation for up to 24 homeless young people or training to help up to eight young people find jobs. Students packing up for the summer holiday were asked to take their reusable items to designated areas. Becca Melhuish, from the Students’ Union, and Rachael Adari, the university’s support services manager, co-ordinated staff, students and other volunteers as they sorted the donations. Items that may be suitable for new students, such as books, CDs, DVDs and kitchenware, have been kept for a free shop for freshers in September.

brilliant example of how businesses and technology have come together to boost the economy. Brighton & Hove is currently developing a bid to become a flagship ‘Future City’ in a nationwide competition to explore how in the future cities can bring together their many systems, through technology and innovation. If we are successful in the competition, we could receive £24m to make our proposals a reality. Our bid will illustrate an economic and environmental vision worthy of this diverse and enterprising city. Included in our plans are ways to promote ‘open data’ policies and create smarter

transport systems around the city. It also squares with our plan to become a ‘One Planet City’. One Planet Living shows how we can reduce our ecological footprint. Our city already has a great track record of supporting businesses in the environment sector, and we would like to continue to lead the way in new green technologies. For example the Eco Technology Show is a brilliant example of local passion for creating technologies which promote business opportunities and jobs and protect the environment. We will be inviting local businesses and communities to get involved, and look forward to submitting our final proposals. Join the debate on Twitter with the #bhfuturecity tag.

Harbour hopes – and plots for the future Huge changes proposed for the ports of Newhaven and Shoreham bode well for Brighton. Frank le Duc reports

T

he two ports either side of Brighton and Hove have both spelt out ambitious plans for the future. Both Newhaven and Shoreham councils are keen to revive the working ports and to make better use of land that is no longer needed for harbour-related business. Given the need for new homes and jobs in both port towns as well as in Brighton and Hove, there are grounds for hope. Much though remains to be done. While those closest to the harbours could be expected to gain most from the fresh optimism and the various plans being prepared, Brighton and Hove ought to benefit too. The city sometimes seems to exist in splendid isolation. Perhaps our physical geography plays its part. It’s nestled between the Downs and the sea and sits hemmed in as part of a bigger coastal conurbation. Just as it acts as a magnet for tourists, it draws more of our neighbours for work than the reverse, although many thousands commute to London each day. Perhaps the feeling of a place apart reflects the independence granted when the two towns formally combined 15 years ago. Whatever the reasons, there are encouraging

signs that those leading our city are increasingly willing to talk to our neighbours. With our need for new homes and jobs high on the agenda, it’s a willingness that makes much sense. Land is in short supply in Brighton and Hove while the plans taking shape in Shoreham and Newhaven – and in Mid Sussex – could benefit from what the city has to offer. Whether it’s skills and training, workers or customers, Brighton and Hove can help Newhaven and Shoreham to grow and improve. Both ports have recently produced master plans setting out their vision for the future. These have energised developers, other business owners, as well as local politicians and officials. Some of those people are based in Brighton. The draft City Plan was discussed at a recent event – organised by property firm Centurion – the case for Brighton and Hove to look beyond its borders was well made and the two port towns were a key part of that proposal. Recent announcements and planning applications are an indication of the extent to which the ports are about to undergo dramatic changes. As we try to strengthen our local

economy and shake off the recession, it is clear that joining a wider conversation about these changes is a must if we are to maximise the mutual benefits.

A NEED TO CONSULT There was a time when a sizeable number of people commuted to Newhaven to work at the harbour and in the surrounding warehouses, workshops and factories. Closures and lay-offs have taken a heavy toll. More than one in eight adults in the town are on some form of Jobseeker’s Allowance. And while some regeneration has taken place, the incinerator saga in particular has created mistrust and discontent. The West Beach closure has also soured public sentiment. So the recent sale of the Lewes Road Recreation Ground has given rise to mixed emotions. Few want to see open spaces built over when there is so much brownfield land locally. Some felt that the deal was done too quickly and with too little chance for the public to have their say. But the flipside is the prospect of a hotel and casino being built, with the developer looking to put a water park in the area too. Round Table Entertainments, a company set up to see through the £350 million project by the Kuwaiti European Holding Company, hopes to create up to 500 jobs. Its proposals are one of a number aimed at making Newhaven more attractive for tourists. Proper consultation has been promised. Councillor Steve Saunders said: “As one of the district ward councillors for Newhaven Valley I was and still remain disappointed that the residents were unable to be consulted at an earlier stage about the sale of the land at Lewes Road Recreation Ground and the potential loss of such fondly regarded and well-used recreational and amenity land. I am, however, aware of the

Boho Green also has various Councillor Rob Blackman, the lead member for other green projects in the pipeline which could business, economic development and tourism, involve the creation of jobs at the harbour. said: “We apologise that more information was Access to and from the port is constrained and not forthcoming but it is not uncommon when money has already been spent improving public negotiations are of such a scale and magnitude transport links. Some reconfiguration may be that they have to be kept confidential. In order to possible at the Hove end – one of the sites where secure the developer’s interest in our district we have honoured this and had to move very rapidly. We hope that residents will understand. We are acting completely within the law and now we are very keen to involve residents. The views of residents and businesses of Newhaven are vital to this project.” After the Eastside planning decision in May the town’s MP, Norman Baker, said: “To grant planning permission for the Asda site and to refuse the application for the Tesco site may well constitute an error of historic proportions which will have serious long-term consequences for the town. Newhaven is at a crossroads and the council’s planning committee has chosen absolutely the wrong turning. “By favouring the Asda site the council will: – Fatally undermine what is left of the town centre in shopping terms. – Damage the prospects for job creation by allowing housing and retail to be built on longprotected industrial land. – Divert scarce ‘planning gain’ resources into a dead-end road, pushed by the county council, which the port says it doesn’t want or need. – Pull the rug out from under the port master plan and so threaten the very future of the port.” Mr Baker’s unusual and vehement intervention over a planning matter gives an indication of the strong feelings around the way land is developed in the town. It also reinforces the need for a genuine and effective consultation if trust is to be built and the benefits realised in terms of investment and jobs.

CLOSER TO HOME There is already a healthy dialogue taking place over Shoreham Harbour. The current port management team are outward-looking. And since plans by SEEDA – the abolished regional development agency – for 10,000 houses and flats were shelved, hopes of revitalising the area have seemed more grounded and realistic. Brighton & Hove City Council, Adur District Council and West Sussex County Council have set up a joint project team with a view to attracting jobs as well as building some homes. Last year the port handled more than two million tonnes of cargo for the first time – a record year despite the recession. Parker Steel’s recently enlarged processing plant has created jobs. Plus Edgeley Green Power has also submitted a £12 million planning application to Adur council for a 32 MW eco-power station at the harbour’s Fishersgate Terminal next to the existing gas-powered facility. The intention is to burn a range of bio-fuels such as vegetable, plant

housing may well be concentrated. But the planning process for change on such a scale is lengthy and the work would be so costly that the sums would be unlikely to add up. But while we may not end up with ideal solutions, encouragingly the port seems energised and there is a general air of optimism. The revitalisation continues and the pace seems to be picking up. Rodney Lunn, the port chief executive, said recently: “Our business community is thriving.” Both Newhaven and Shoreham are vying to be the onshore base for energy firm Eon’s Rampion wind farm. Both have marinas for pleasure boats although nothing on the scale of Brighton Marina. And both have a modest inshore fishing fleet with leisure fishing also catered for. With the port master plans acting as catalysts, both places now have much more going for them. It is good to see some love being lavished on Newhaven and Shoreham and it’s encouraging to think that Brighton and Hove might contribute to, and benefit from, that process. After all, we’re all supposed to be in this together.■

“To take action against her would alienate the Greens from many Christians.” What is at issue is not, say some Greens, the religious beliefs held by Councillor Summers.

LATEST INBOX Telly Talk: Respect Your Elders BBC1’s programme Respect Your Elders explored one of the most important decisions we must all make in our lives. Actress June Brown (best known as Dot Cotton in EastEnders) declared her preferences for her end-oflife care and medical treatment, including her choice not to be resuscitated should she stop breathing. A 2011 YouGov survey of over 2,000 people found that over 80 per cent of people felt strongly about what end-of-life

medical treatment they did and didn’t want, yet only 3 per cent of people had recorded this in an Advance Decision form. An Advance Decision form allows you to record in advance what your treatment preferences would be, in the event that you lose the ability to communicate. The charity Compassion in Dying provides Advance Decision documents free of charge. We also help by providing patients, carers and healthcare professionals with support and advice on end-of-life care via our freephone: 0800 999 2434 (Mon-Fri: 11am – 3pm) Sarah Woottem, Chief Executive, Compassion In Dying, via email

L7 INTERVIEW

11

You filmed The Bourne Legacy in several locations including Canada, South Korea and the Philippines. Which was the most memorable location? “I really had a lot of fun in Alberta, Canada just because it was around Christmas time and it was snowing. You don’t really get that in California. It was really beautiful although I hated putting on the beard.” How freezing cold were you in those scenes in the snowy mountains? “It was very cold. The most memorable thing was being in the water at negative temperatures. That was pretty intense. There’s nothing you can do to prepare for it. You just go in and freeze and hope your heart doesn’t stop.”

BOURNE AGAIN

The Bourne Legacy sees sinister governement agencies pulling strings yet again, mixing old faces with a new action star. Jeremy Renner tells all about his recruitment to the Bourne series, self-employment & Steve McQueen

How did this role come to you? “It came to me in a very Bourne-like way. Someone flew out to Germany where I was shooting Hansel And Gretel. They knocked on my door, handed me a script and said, ‘When you’re done with it, call this number...’ It was very spy-like. So I read it, loved it, and thought I’d be an idiot not to do it.” Did you have any qualms about doing this role given that you know Matt Damon who played Jason Bourne in the previous films? “The only qualm would have been if I was being asked to play Jason Bourne. So, it was really easy because I’m not. Now that the trailers are out you get the idea of what the film is about.” Who is your character, Aaron Cross? “At his basic, Aaron Cross is a guy that wanted to belong. He’s a guy who wants to fit in and be a part of something. He’s completely the opposite of who Jason Bourne was. Bourne was just trying to find out who the hell he was, but this Aaron Cross knows exactly who he is. He knows what he wants to do and that’s being a part of this team.” You have an amazing motorbike chase scene in Manila with Rachel Weisz clinging on for dear life. How did you prepare? “To prepare, I had to get used to that motorcycle.

Can you talk about your new production company, The Combine? “It’s a great way for me to be creative from a different perspective. Instead of just being the painter, painting the house, now I’m a guy contracting the house. That’s what producing a movie is like, having a little bit more say in the matter. On jobs, I tend to take on more work than necessary anyway. I’m not just an actor who comes in. I consider everything and I really like cinema and movies. The Combine allows me to aggregate some people who I think are really talented and am crazy about. Then they can make movies that the studio won’t make or maybe they make one of those a year. I think there’s a great pipeline for amazing cinema like The Hurt Locker or The Town or films that aren’t $150 million massive franchises where you put on some tights and need CGI to be made. I’m willing to put in the legwork for it.” You plan to star in and produce a Steve McQueen biopic. Was he an idol to you growing up? “I think he’s an icon. I was never really a crazy rabid fan by any means, but I certainly have seen quite a few of his movies. I just thought he was a really interesting guy and interesting to explore. It’s an honour to explore his journey.” What makes him so iconic? “I think the things we know about him are only just the backdrop to who he is as a person. He’s a walking dichotomy. He’s the most generous and giving and at the same time he’s the most stingy and frugal. He’s constantly the polar opposite of himself. His upbringing was also really interesting. I can’t wait to jump into this project.”

Snap Shots Photographer Diana Frangi captures the faces and places that define our city. This week: Arthur Brown’s son, author Julian Wolfendale

I traced Arthur first through the adoption agency, which took a couple of months as there was no internet then. I wrote him a letter saying I would understand if he didn’t want any contact. He was very glad I had finally tracked him down. We met and I was stunned that there stood not only my father, but he was ‘crazy’ Arthur Brown, known to the world as ‘The God of Hellfire’ and the king of the hippies. I told him who I was, we looked at each other and cried. I didn’t know what to say, or even what to call him. It didn’t matter. I have his eyes.

Julian Wolfendale’s book, Damaged Goods, is his life story and how he met his biological father at the age of 30, ‘God of Hellfire’ Arthur Brown. Julian was given up at birth, then adopted and went through a tough childhood. With music and topical references from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s, this story will have you reaching for your record collection. Damaged Goods is available to download on Kindle and from www.amazon.co.uk

If the man with the “bat” hit the ball far enough away, he would attempt to “run” between the wooden sticks and another group of sticks a short distance away. If the ball was hit in the air and a member of the opposing team caught it, the player with the bat was “out” and had to go and sit down furiously angry while pretending to be a good sport about it. The only other thing I can think of was that we dressed in white to play the game, odd as this sounds, with sort of “pads” tied around the knees of the fellow with the bat, who also wore a codpiece.

Answer: absolutely nothing except for a typical week in my pool of chaos that every now and then needs levelling out with fruit and nut loaf with crushed banana and a smattering of syrup. The robots have been creeping back into my life; I’ve just polished off a 100 x 100 robot on canvas with nail varnish. In order to complete such an undertaking, I needed no distractions from domesticated life so I set my new Street wombled Robo Mop onto 1hr 3O minutes to clean the kitchen floor, while painting in such a

ANDREW KAY’S FOOD & DRINK

Food & Drink Andrew Kay tastes the wines and the steaks at The Hove Bank Steak & Ribs

Rare & red

G

rowing up with a grandfather who was a rather fine butcher, it should comes as no surprise that I am a seasoned meat eater with a reasonably good knowledge of fleshy parts. The misunderstanding has always been that we dined on fillet, the truth is that we dined on cheap cuts, all of which were dished up with the kind of culinary skill that cheaper cuts required, skills that I use to this day, when I can find those cheap cuts that have become the stock in trade of the gastro pub! Invitations arrive here on a daily basis, which is rather nice, and I am happy to fulfil as many as seem appropriate. When one arrived from The Hove Bank I was immediately reminded of the fabulous picture of Blythe King on our cover a few weeks back. She had been one of my junior reviewers and she had a great time at The Hove Bank, including whippy ice cream. Now I love good ice cream, by which I mean artisan ices at artisan prices, but there is something appealing about a Mr Whippy, and that is one of the fun things they offer. The second lure was the presence of Henry Butler of Butler’s Wine Cellar. Henry is my wine merchant of choice and I spend too much time and money in his shops. Knowing that he was there meant that the restaurant was A, working with a local supplier, a policy I wholly approve of, and B, choosing wines with a man who has an impeccable palate and the sense to supply affordable wines of quality. On arrival we had a glass of prosecco, delicious dry stuff clearly a cut above the average bottle. It went down well and we even commented on the nice packaging. But that was merely a pre-amble to the core of the evening where an invited group would taste the red wines alongside a selection of the meats. And what great meats! Selected for flavour rather than provenance we looked at the sirloin, rump, fillet, T-bone and pave. When asked if they were locally sourced the answer was clear; some were but on the whole they were chosen for quality and flavour. Now I am a big fan of buying local but I always, given a choice, go for quality. I am glad they do the same. Raw meat viewed, Henry started popping open some wines. We started at entry level, the house red and very good it was too. Perfectly quaffable stuff that worked well with the meats which had started to arrive. Cooked medium rare, I tended to go for slices Latest 7 supports from the centre of the steak where it would be at its bloodiest. This may have been misconstrued by my colleagues as the bloodiest slices were also the biggest. I offer no apology, I know exactly want I like and it isn’t medium to rare steak. At home I tend to cook rump, it is VOTE NOW affordable and it is full of flavour. At www.brightonfoodawards.com

The Hove Bank the rump was excellent, as was the T-Bone and sirloin. I didn’t bother with the fillet, fillet is for dainty mouths who are unprepared to chew and care little for the flavour – I am sure it was good. I even liked the burger and I’m not a burger fan, but I discovered that some of the meats are supplied by Paul at Bramptons in Kemp Town Village, so the quality was assured. He also supplies the pave rump, a Scottish beef of superb quality that had us all smiling. It comes at a premium but my word it is tasty. As the meats arrived so did more wines, all of them excellent and some truly delicious. Henry has a knack for finding wines that you will not find on the supermarket shelves or in your local newsagents. I hate that; high street wines priced beyond reason on restaurant menus. I would also add that the management at The Hove Bank are not greedy with their mark ups and would rather sell you a second bottle of wine at a good price than scare you away. Three cheers for that! We tasted away, happily comparing notes and discussing the wine and food. Ribs arrived and delivered exactly what one would hope for, basted in their own basting sauce. We were given all the steaks cooked with that sauce as well as cooked without. I liked the sauce, especially on the ribs where the rich earthy pork could handle the sweet spicy concoction. I liked it too with the chips, but felt that it was best served on the side and not on the beef. It’s a personal choice and I am sure many will like the baste cooked on their steak. You might imagine that we all left after that, but no, we were all invited to stay for dinner! Which we did, although I could only manage a small rump with a green salad. It was a very pleasant evening and one that I would recommend. You could just go along and dine, or maybe they could do a similar beef and booze tasting for a party, now that would be fun.

Light bites Brighton & Hove Food Festival September sees the return of the Brighton and Hove Food Festival Autumn Programme and as ever I will be out and about making public appearances across the city. The first will be at Hotel du Vin for Make Your Case. We piloted this in 2011 and it was a raucous evening of lively debate and booze. This year presenters will have three minutes to introduce their wine, blind, and then the assembled audience will vote. At the end of the evening one wine will be revealed to be the winner and one audience member will go home with a bottle of each of the wines presented. I will be joined on stage by co-host Henry Butler so it should be a ribald and gastronomic treat (Friday 7 Sept, Pub du Vin Ballroom, tickets £20 to include wine and food platters). This year the Live Food Stage sponsored by Latest 7 will be on Hove Lawns as part of the festival’s international market on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 September. Once again I will be

joined on stage by local chefs and food producers but also by guest chefs from France participating in Chef Exchange at L’Eglise in Hove. We will also be presenting the awards for our new food and produce competition the Big Brighton Bite Off with classes for kids, adults and professionals – for more details take a look at the festival’s website. I will also be taking part in an industry event in conjunction with Brighton & Hove Chamber of Commerce and open to the hospitality industry. Hospitality Out of the Box will be a seminar format event in which industry professionals will discuss how best to promote your business. If that sounds too serious then you will probably find me at the launch in Bartholomew Square having a stab at the noodle eating competition. There are many more events, details of which can be found on the website at: www.brightonfoodfestival.com

MAGICAL VISION THE FAIRY QUEEN, Glyndebourne, 28 July 2012, ✪✪✪✪✪

A

nyone who uses the cliché ‘less is more’ has quite clearly never seen the Glyndebourne production of The Fairy Queen. Jonathan Kent’s vision dispenses with any idea that logic will prevail, and in mixing the references, period and form, he manages to make an exhilarating whole. Setting the piece in a room which is an expanding cabinet of curiosities gives full rein to fantasy and fun, as well as finesse. As a work this is in itself a cabinet of curiosities. The finesse is delivered with fine soloists and the fabulous Glyndebourne chorus as well as the precise and vivacious playing of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment under the direction of Laurence Cummings. They fairly rip along when required and play with purity and restraint too. The form; part opera, part play, part masque, may seem strange to a modern audience – plays within plays, ballets, bonking bunnies, fairies, demons, gods... all pulled together, despite the disparity, to make what has to be some of the most engaging theatre for many a year. Purcell’s music is a delight and the clusters of songs that frame the play are very fine, filled with both humour and pain. The rude mechanicals are appropriately ‘rude’, Oberon and Titania fruitily fabulous and Puck menacingly mischievous one moment, innocent and sweet the next. Throwing together so much could be a disaster but Kent, Cummings, designer Paul Brown and choreographer Kim Brandstrup have baked a rich, dark fruitcake of a production that had the audience delighted from beginning to end. Andrew Kay

SUMMER SCHUBERTIADE – MARCUS FARNSWORTH (BARITONE) AND JAMES BAILLIEU (PIANO)

This venue, vulnerable to farmyard noises, is not yet ideal for Lieder recitals and the dry acoustic gives no feedback to the singer. However, the familiar Schubert songs came across beautifully and reassured us that all would go well. I am so grateful that I was introduced to the unfamiliar Kurtág works by such convincing and sensitive performances. The unaccompanied baritone songs had such extraordinary vocal agility, range and delicacy. In the Benjamin Britten songs, Farnsworth’s rich tone and perfect diction was complemented wonderfully by Baillieu’s attentive characterisation and virtuosity. Let’s hope this

excellent partnership comes back to Sussex soon. Charleston Barn, Firle, 28 July 2012 ✪✪✪✪✪ Andrew Connal

CHARLOTTE CHURCH

Clever PR trick or genuine attempt to ‘be real’ after a somewhat unreal childhood? My money’s on the latter, particularly as when offered dressing facilities, Church said ‘she’d find some toilets to get changed in’. But this commonplace band behaviour belied a truly exceptional voice, and an exceptional gig featured new material and a new direction unleashed at a grimy indie venue. If, with all that voice training the vocals nodded to musical theatre at times, in her upper registers Church sang with a truly haunting and unworldly power, beauty,

INSPIRAL CARPETS

Music fans are rightly starting to feel fatigued by the current glut of reunion tours, but this show was everything that a comeback gig should be. The Inspiral Carpets were always more musically talented than most of their contemporaries, and the passage of time has not diminished their abilities. Spurred on by the presence of original singer Stephen Holt after 23 years apart, the Manchester legends rattled through an impressively raucous greatest hits set, without a bum note to be heard. The band clearly loved every minute of the gig, but not half as much as their legion of diehard fans. Concorde 2, 27 July 2012 ✪✪✪✪✪

CAMP BESTIVAL

Camp Bestival is aimed squarely at festival goers with a propensity for breeding. For the adults, a twinge of nostalgia with Adam Ant, Kool and the Gang, even Happy Mondays. For the acts that manage to straddle the age divide the reception was fantastic and this year the two that performed this trick were both relative newcomers. Hot Chip are a strange bunch. Solid and at first quite static but once funked up at a steady BPM they cruised along. The second act and highlight of the festival were undoubtedly two twenty year olds, the Rizzle Kicks, bouncing onto stage with an attitude just the right side of arrogant. The festival is spectacularly well organised. Someone has been able to create the right vibe and this is vital for the hundreds of crew, thousands of festival goers and even the humble security guard on the gate of our far-off camping field.

Absurd Person Singular Photo by Robert Day

STAGE: AYCKBOURN DOUBLE BILL The classic Absurd Person Singular is coupled with new play, Surprises, at Chichester Festival Theatre

C

hichester’s Festival 2012 continues with two productions by Alan Ayckbourn, one of Britain’s most popular and acclaimed playwrights. Surprises is a brand new play, presented alongside his award-winning classic comedy Absurd Person Singular. These two plays are co-productions with Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough, and feature one company of actors. Surprises is the gently funny and poignant depiction of several intertwined love stories set in the near future that explore the central theme of longevity. Absurd Person Singular follows three couples in three kitchens over three Christmases. This darkly comic story of culinary disasters, emotional breakdowns and social climbing established the tragi-comic genre that has become synonymous with Laura Doddington (Zandy) and Ben Porter (Titus) in Surprises Ayckbourn’s finest writing. In 1974 it won the Photo by Robert Day Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy. Surprises is Ayckbourn’s 76th play in a career spanning over 50 years, while Absurd Person Singular was first staged in 1972. Ayckbourn recently became the first British playwright to receive both Olivier and Tony Special Lifetime Achievement Awards and was knighted for services to theatre in 1997. His work includes Man Of The Moment, A Chorus Of Disapproval, Woman In Mind, A Small Family Business, The Norman Conquests, Absent Friends and Relatively Speaking. He was Artistic Director of the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough, from 1972 to 2009, where the majority of his work continues to be premiered.

O

ne of the finest American singer-songwriters of recent years is a regular visitor to these shores where he has built up a sizeable following for his highly literate and melodic outpourings. Initially signed to Conor Oberst’s (Bright Eyes) label, his first album, Where The Humans Eat, was recorded in the Catskills Mountains of New York State; a relatively stripped back affair, it featured one of the outstanding sociopolitical songs of the noughties, 'Oxygen'. At age just 18 here was a raw yet mature talent that already sounded world weary and yet utterly inspiring to a new generation of singer-songwriters. His second album, If The Ocean Gets Rough, was a much more polished affair, but every bit as good as his debut and cementing his reputation as an artist big of heart and big on talent. Every now and then he works with other artists such as The Chemical Brothers (providing vocals for ‘Battle Scars’) and more recently Lianne La Havas on her ‘No Room For Doubt’ track. We’ve yet to see a follow up to his last album released five years ago, but the word is he’ll be showcasing some new material as well as dipping into his already rich repertoire.

LATEST PREVIEWS COMEDY&EVENTS

COMEDY: PAUL ZERDIN – PUPPET MASTER YouTube phenomenon, chatted with the Queen, sold out Edinburgh show – ventriloquist Zerdin has it all When did you first realise you wanted to use ventriloquism as your medium? “I don't think I ever realised it, I just fell into it. When I left school I was doing magic and I'd been given a book on how to be a ventriloquist. I'd been interested in it but I'd never thought of it as a career choice. I was trying to get an agent and the only person that was interested in me was this lady called Jenny and she said ‘I love what you do but I've got loads of people that do magic, you need something that's different, what can you do that's different?’. I said, ‘Well, I've got this ventriloquist act that I'm working on’, and she said, ‘well, carry on working on it and when it's ready come back and see me’. And so that kind of decided it really for me in a way. I had quite a bit of success early on and I got a bit of telly when I'd just started literally doing the ventriloquist act, and so then I became a kids’ presenter for a couple of years doing ventriloquism and presenting. I thought I might as well carry on doing this really and see where it takes me.” Ventriloquists seem to get quite a bit of prejudice against them. Why do you think that is? “I think it's because people think they're weird, and I suppose there is something a bit weird about it. I think people have seen those films – ventriloquists have been depicted as a bit mental, as you know, murdering psychopaths, and I don't think that particularly helps the image, if I'm completely honest!”

EVENTS: FRIGHTEN BRIGHTON CLASSIC HORROR FILM FESTIVAL From the brains behind the Classic Horror Campaign, Cyberschizoid and Scare Sarah present the Frighten Brighton Classic Horror Film Festival – a whole day of gruesome movies. As well as the macabre movies, special guest presenter Miss Emily Booth, notably the horror hostess with the mostest from the UK's Horror Channel will be there too. Shock Horror magazine will also provide free copies of their magazine to some of the lucky attendees. The bar is open all day with food and popcorn available from the Komedia Café so you won’t go hungry. Komedia, Sat 11 Aug, 12pm, £15 all day pass or £5 per film EVENTS: BRIGHTON WALKS – MURDER AND MYSTERY Brighton has been the backdrop to many infamous murders. For instance, it's the only place in the country where a police constable was murdered in his own police station. Lyn Neville tells you gruesome stories of poison and shootings as she guides you on this fascinating tour of the city. Meet at Brighton Town Hall, Sat 11 Aug, 7.30pm, £7/£5

EVENTS: THE PRINCE REGENT’S GARDEN FETE Celebrate George IV’s 250th birthday with a traditional fund-raising garden fête. Chance your luck on the stalls, sing along with a brass band and raise a handkerchief to the Brighton Morris Men. All proceeds go to supporting the Garden Fund. Royal Pavilion East Lawn, Sat 11 Aug, 2pm–6.30pm, free EVENTS: BRIGHTON WRITERS RETREAT A procrastination-busting, one-day writing retreat to help you get a move on with your writing project. The workshop is about quantity, not quality, with lunch, competitions, tea and biscuits to get you motivated. Perfect for people with a project in progress that has stalled or been put aside. Booking essential. The Writers’ Place, New Writing South, Sun 12 Aug, 10am-4pm, £35 COMEDY: LIVE ’N’ LAUGHING – MATT RICHARDSON Multi-award winning Matt Richardson performs, along with fabulous support acts and a happy atmosphere at this yet again renamed venue in town. bloc1 (formerly Psychosocial), Wed 8 Aug, 8pm, £7/4

What's the oddest reaction you've had from an audience member to just the idea of ventriloquism? “I was in Denmark doing a TV chat show and I'd been over there and guested for it five times now, and I remember I'd taken the puppet out in one of the shows and the woman just screamed. Absolutely screaming, as if it was some sort of devil doll and she'd never seen anything like it before and it was just a little cheeky looking muppet really. I wouldn't say it was particularly frightening, maybe if you're a four year old then you might be frightened, but this was a grown woman and it was just funny, she was just screaming.” What do you plan to do next? “I’m doing a pilot for a sitcom. It's my own show, which I'm recording in September. I'm doing a festival in South Africa and then I start my autumn tour. It’s kind of like Seinfeld meets The Muppets, so it's a show based around a world that's all about learning really, me and the characters at home and what you’d see if I was mad.” Paul Zerdin – Puppet Master, Pavilion Theatre, Worthing, Thursday 9 August, 7.45pm, £15/13.50, www.worthingtheatres.co.uk follow me on twitter

ver wondered if the boys who go to see Disney films feel left out? Just checking, because it always seems to be about empowered princesses doing it for themselves these days when maybe the odd prince finding his way might not go amiss for one summer holiday. Anyway, Princess Merida (Kelly Macdonald) is a feisty redheaded Scot, an expert archer and daughter of King Fergus and Queen Elinor (Billy Connolly and Emma Thompson). Unsurprising then that she’s also rather headstrong and determined to make her own way in life, breaking with tradition and unwittingly releasing chaos into the kingdom. Best go ask a witch for help then – no! D’oh! Hey presto, here’s a curse and even more strife. However will she restore order and emerge older and wiser by the end? We’ll just have to watch and hope for the best. Also featuring the voices of Julie Walters, Robbie Coltrane, Kevin McKidd and Craig Ferguson. Showing at Odeon and Cineworld now in 2D and 3D.

With Val Aviv

Telly Talk

★ARIES {Mar 21–Apr 20}

A claustrophobic relationship can leave you frustrated, especially if you’re not given adequate recognition. Take a step back, you don’t really need approval and others don’t need your bullets. You have the power to make light of everything.

★TAURUS {Apr 21–May 21}

You’re very torn between taking a risk, which could be deemed brave or stupid, and playing it safe, which could mean the beginning of the end. Remember that reality is what you make it: if you believe in the possibility of success being yours, then it will be.

★GEMINI {May 22–June 21}

Your ruler Mercury moves into the highly energised and larger than life sign of Leo, which brings added charisma and charm to your daily encounters. If confidence is nine tenths of the magic, then you will not be short of magic.

★CANCER {June 22–July 22}

Love can move you to unhealthy extremes, but you should sense a little light relief as Venus makes everything less intensely serious and more enjoyable. You may have to be tough on the inside now the pressure is on, just don’t lose your cool outwardly; it’s a long game.

★LEO {July 23–Aug 22}

A secret admirer plays a big part in your destiny although you may not see them as much as either of your schedules will allow. You could keep a special place for them in your dreams. Negotiations are tough, but deals have both short and long term prospects.

★VIRGO {Aug 23–Sep 22}

Getting what you want may feel like walking up a downward escalator; it seems tiring, pointless and frustrating. To take a rest and allow yourself to go with the flow may seem like you’re going backwards, but the tide will soon turn in your favour.

★LIBRA {Sep 23–Oct 22}

We make our own luck to some extent and we also create some of our own misfortune. Sometimes when we want things so badly, we over-react to the little things that appear to stand in our way. Avoid seeing the negatives; it’ll help them vanish.

★SCORPIO {Oct 23–Nov 21}

Our brains will keep processing new information no matter how radical. If a previous experience has left you a little embittered, it could be time to re-evaluate what you thought you knew and look upon life with renewed faith. The past does not equal the future.

★SAGITTARIUS {Nov 22–Dec 20}

It has been said that our greatest teachers are our enemies, they help us to overcome challenges, they make us stronger and they help us become conscious of that which is unresolved in our psyche. If it weren’t for the competition, how could you be a winner?

★CAPRICORN {Dec 21–Jan 19}

Love is transforming you in profound ways; it may be appropriate to show your appreciation by expressing deep affection. You may be seen as a stickler, but really you’re focused on the job, let the people around you know that you do care.

★AQUARIUS {Jan 20–Feb 19}

You don’t need to exhibit lugubrious nonchalance about the world because one or two of your dreams are not rooted in reality and you’ve finally just realised that. Anything great that’s ever happened started out as a dream; reality is yet more exciting still.

★PISCES {Feb 20–Mar 20}

Obligations don’t have to be an uphill treadmill; in actual fact, it’s more like a cascading snowball of joyous mayhem, or drama. Wear the right head and you can have a lot of fun. Finances alone can’t make you happy, only you can make you happy.

Real, real, real

M

any moons ago, people watched Big Brother in droves, it lived on Channel 4, and a star was born. Not actually from the house itself (sorry Brian Dowling) but from the snazzy indents that were essentially the bits with a phone company’s logo on and a strange man holding the first Big Brother winner – Craig Phillips – captive in a wardrobe. This was Avid Merrion, creation of Leigh Francis. Bit of an unlikely break some would say, but fast forward a decade and a bit and Francis’ most popular character to date – Keith Lemon, star of Celebrity Juice and soon to have his own film – is now turning the tables on that chrysalis and starring in a brand new reality programme, all about him.

“He hasn’t lost any of his affectionate venom as the years have passed” It might seem odd to put together a reality programme about a fictitious character, but perhaps it’s a little more honest than taking so-called ‘real’ people and putting them into constructed scenarios; dropping them into a completely contained house for the summer under the assumption that when they come out there’ll be a job waiting for them presenting late night casino telly, or flogging steak knives on the shopping channel. At least Lemon La Vida Loca is clear about its deceptions from the start. Promising to film behind the scenes of the movie being made (it really is being made!) and his life, this bizarre concept seems to work. With the smattering of celebs surrounding Keith and his girlfriend Rosie it’s actually very funny watching people react to the mini scenes the pair create in front of them. In fact, it’s almost the inverse of the majority of contemporary reality shows, with the stars choosing the dramas and the crew and extras having to respond, providing the ‘naturalism’. The first event in the peroxide pair’s tumultuous life is Rosie

moving down from Leeds and in with Keith. With gratuitous amounts of nudity, pornographic duvet sets and swingball (and you can imagine how well they went down at the swanky estate agent’s office) Leigh Francis isn’t pulling any punches with this latest vehicle for his creations. Lemon is ideally situated to poke the bear that is celebrity culture – he rubs shoulders with them every week, be they ‘talented’ actors or reality ‘personalities’. Having started with a comment on fandom, it’s good to see he hasn’t lost any of his affectionate venom as the years have passed. Playing swingball with Dane Bowers, the D-lister asks Keith Lemon if he’s played against any celebrities “apart from me”, only to get a boastful and clearly fictitious response. It’s clear that all the cool kids know they’re not really that cool and are content with that. The really cool kids, the ones who won’t appear on the show and whose noses are actually put out by the supposed depiction of their lifestyles, are lampooned by their own aloofness. Could it be that the ultimate fanboy has subversively levelled the playing field of celebrity, turning celebs into his fans? Surely this means the world is about to implode! Best not to think about it too much. Lemon La Vida Loca, ITV2, (started last week) Thursday 9 August 2012 follow me on twitter

sunday 12 Olympics 2012: Closing Ceremony BBC1, 9pm After the Opening Ceremony what the closing ceremony will have in store is anybody’s guess. Only scheduled for two and a half hours this time, you can bet the medal-winners will be beaming like Cheshire cats. Quite an achievement London and the UK, pat yourself on the back.

Thelma’s Gypsy Girls Channel 4, 9pm Thelma’s fashion design course for ten Gypsy and Traveller ladies is coming to a close, and an allegation of racism in the factory sours the mood. The girls have their last challenge – to design and showcase their own dresses on the catwalk. To prepare they go to a fashion museum, where cultural differences arise again.

FILM: Fantastic Four E4, 8pm The last few weeks have been filled with superheroes – running around tracks, rowing, lifting weights – and so with the close of the Olympics it might just be time to return to our fictitious heroes, leaving us feeling less inadequate (but also less likely to go to the gym). The 2005 Marvel flick about the dangers of space.
