TheVote Governors meet to decide whether Hove Park School should become an academy

T

his week and next week, Hove Park School is hosting a series of consultation meetings as the head and governors consider whether it should become an academy. The first meeting for parents and carers was due to be held yesterday (Monday) and the final meeting is scheduled for next Wednesday (21 May). Students will also be briefed and given a chance to share their views. An information booklet is upfront in tackling some of the concerns that the governors have anticipated. It says: “We are not considering having a sponsor, like BACA and PACA. We are not interested in changing the times of the school day or having different holidays to the rest of Brighton and Hove. We are not interested in changing anyone’s pay or conditions.” BACA and PACA – the Brighton Aldridge Community Academy in Falmer and the Portslade Aldridge Community Academy in Mile Oak – were poor performers. Their sponsor, the Aldridge Foundation, is chaired by the former Portslade schoolboy turned millionaire businessman Sir Rod Aldridge. He helped attract funding for new buildings costing £40 million in total, and results are better. This is not true of all academies. Hove Park was a poor performer, but that is not why the governors have expressed an interest in the school becoming an academy. Under

I

t’s that time of year again, when we celebrate the Brighton Festival and Brighton Fringe, both running throughout the month of May. They are our annual celebration of music, theatre, dance, circus, art, film, literature, debate, outdoor and family events in venues across the city. The Brighton Festival kicked off with the annual Children’s Parade, which was bigger and better than in previous years. A total of 83 schools and 5,000 children put on a wonderful parade for all, and I was delighted to see everything from

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to Frankenstein’s monster represented in their remarkable costumes and floats. It’s so wonderful to see our children enjoying the city, being creative with arts and music for the parade. These annual festivals showcase many global stars, including the work of this year’s guest festival director Hofesh Shechter. They also give a vital platform to many local arts groups and performers, helping them go on to future successes. There’s a huge range of events – including plenty of free ones – to keep residents and visitors busy.

Derek Trimmer

“On the agenda is the need to modernise the school buildings” community – children, parents and teaching staff. We are calling on all governors to reject the idea of Hove Park School becoming an academy.” The subject was due to be debated when the council met on Thursday with Councillor Sue Shanks, who chairs the Children and Young People Committee, proposing a motion opposing academies in principle. She believes that having any more academies locally would make it harder for the council to fulfil various statutory duties. These include planning school places, improving school performance and protecting – or safeguarding – children.

Brighton & Hove City Council leader Jason Kitcat on the boons of festival time

the current head, Derek Trimmer, Hove Park has become one of the fastest improving schools in the country in the past three years. Mr Trimmer and his staff are already working with one of Hove Park’s traditional feeder schools on performance. And the education watchdog Ofsted has already praised the improvements at West Blatchington Primary, the school in question. As an academy, Hove Park could help others. In the case of feeder schools, this would potentially improve Hove Park’s results even more over time. But the prospect of academy status has provoked a vocal campaign. Parents, local politicians and union members have protested. And last month about 150 opponents went along to a public meeting at Bishop Hannington Memorial Church in Hangleton. The campaigners – Hands Off Hove Park – say they want “a Hove school, not a Gove school”. They want a school that has a stronger relationship with its local authority, Brighton and Hove City Council, rather than just the Department for Education, headed by Michael Gove the Education Secretary. They have started a petition, which has attracted more than a thousand signatures. It says: “We want Hove Park School to remain within local authority control because we believe it will be better for the whole

It’s a huge boost to the local economy too. Between them, these two internationally-renowned festivals attract over 350,000 people to their events and performances, and bring tens of millions of pounds to our wider local economy. In Brighton & Hove we already have over 1,500 companies involved in areas like advertising, architecture, design, music, theatre, computer games,

Those governors who favour becoming an academy fear that if the school doesn’t make its move now, it may well have a sponsor foisted on it. Worse, it could become subsumed by one of the growing number of multiacademy trusts (MATs). They would rather that the school was a leader and able to set its own agenda. And on the agenda is the need to modernise the school buildings – something that has not proved possible under the current arrangements. Mr Trimmer, who taught drama before he became a head, is keen to innovate too. He has already given every pupil an iPad. He has other ambitions for his pupils but is constrained by the national curriculum. If the school becomes an academy, he will be freed from this constraint. And if he is to win round those who oppose the prospect of Hove Park Academy, he will need to give an award-winning performance.

television and radio. They’ve established a critical mass of expertise and skills, and continue to attract new companies to the city. Part of our work as a council is supporting the local economy, ensuring that we continue to be fertile ground for these kinds of small businesses, which employ so many and contribute so much to Brighton & Hove. Brighton & Hove is already an industry-leader in the arts. Through supporting these festivals, we hope to continue to make arts accessible to all, and continue to reap the cultural and economic benefits they bring to our city.

This week’s headlines from across the city Pic: Victor Frankowski

SIMPLY THE FEST Thousands of youngsters from 83 schools took to the streets of Brighton for the annual Children’s Parade. The traditional curtain raiser to the Brighton Festival proved as popular as ever with a crowd of about 20,000 lining city centre streets to cheer the 5,000 youngsters on the way. With the sun shining down on the usual collection of creative colourful costumes, raucous riffs and addictive dancing, this year's event was one of the best yet. The theme was the arts, with different sections of the parade focusing on different genres including dance, theatre, film, visual arts and books. FLASHING MUMS A group of mothers put their breast foot forward in taking a stand against a major retailer. After a mother was asked to leave a Sports Direct store in Nottingham for feeding her son, parents locally decided to show solidarity. The Latest TV cameras captured the flashmob outside the firm’s shop in

North Street, Brighton, last week. But did their display win over support? To see our report, visit www.thelatest.tv.

MUSEUM REPRIEVE Campaigners who want Portslade to have its own museum have been given three months to come up with a plan. They have pinned their hopes on the chance to use the old police station on St Andrew’s Road as a site for a museum. And they were told that they had three months to find a way forward after a passionate plea by ward councillor Alan Robins. The local authority wants to use the old police station for housing and planning permission has already been granted. But council leader “A group Jason Kitcat said that circumstances had of mothers created a three-month delay – which put their campaigners can now use to their advantage.

LICENCE TAKEAWAY Two takeaways – rated by some as Brighton’s best kebab shops – have had

their late night licences revoked after staying open later than allowed. Casba and Casba 2, both on Western Road, have licences to stay open until 1am and 2.30am respectively on a Friday and Saturday. But, after receiving reports that all three were still open as late as 5am, Sussex Police and Brighton & Hove City Council took action. With the owner Aris Dema not responding to the authorities, the licences were revoked at a special hearing which means they now cannot legally serve hot food after 11pm and before 5am. It is the first time that this step has been taken against a city takeaway. GRAND SALE The prestigious Grand hotel on Brighton seafront has been sold. The building, which was the focus of the world’s media after the Brighton bomb in 1984, was put up for sale by the de Vere group with a £50 million price tag. The sum and the name of the new owner still remains a secret. But, talking to The Argus, The Grand’s general manager Andrew Mosley said it had been passed on to “good hands” and that he expected the current management to stay in place.

What a fool believes With Michael McDonald

H

i! I’m Michael McDonald, singer-songwriter with The Doobie Brothers. You know, ever since I penned our GrammySong-of-the-Year-Award-winning number one hit What A Fool Believes with Kenny Loggins way back in 1978, I have been collecting examples of what a fool believes – in other words, writing down the common misconceptions that you hear every day as you go about your business. I’ve got a whole folder of the stuff and I was thrilled when the guys here at Bare Cheek asked me to share them all with you, cos I just know we’re going to have a whole heap of fun. So, strap yourself in for one helluva ride as we take a tour (and believe me, I’ve done a few of those in my time) of the crazy world of ‘What A Fool Believes’.

FIVE MORE FANTASTIC FACTS ABOUT FABULOUS HOVE

LATERAL THINKING

1

Hove has a flat-pack “back up” stored in warehouses in nearby Portslade, which can be pressed into service if the real Hove is ever destroyed by an earthquake, typhoon, terrorist attack or similar.

2

In 1992, in an attempt to improve its image and increase tourist trade, Hove Council decided to create a mascot. “Henry Hove”, an anthropomorphic earthworm in a pork pie hat, was used in promotional materials but was abandoned in 1994 after an actor dressed as the mascot was messily decapitated by a malfunctioning waltzer during a carnival on Hove Lawns in front of 700 people.

3

People banned for life from Hove include cyber-love-cheat comedian Jason Manford, Dempsy And Makepeace star Michael Brandon, and fictional Whizzer And Chips character Shiner.

4

If predictions on global warming are accurate, by 2061 the only parts of the United Kingdom above sea level will be Aldrington and Pontypridd in Wales.

NO. 39: THE FLUGELHORN A musician enters a heavily built-up area at three o’clock in the morning and proceeds to play the whole of Porgy & Bess on a flugelhorn at earsplitting volume. Not only does no one complain, but the man receives many letters of thanks and is shortly elected mayor. Why?

SOLUTION TO LAST WEEK’S PROBLEM Jimsen’s trousers are see-through ones made of cellophane, revealing every part of his body from the waist down. Brough’s screenplay is contrived and hackneyed.

In & Out • Lark Rise To Candleford • Storm windows • Stressed Eric • Chaos theory • Magnum PI

Well, that’s it for this week. Nice talking to you all. I’m always on the lookout for these common misconceptions and eager to hear any you can think of. So if you’d like to take the trouble to write them down and send them to me, I’d be very much obliged and the best will appear in this column credited to your good selves, of course.

Celebcity with Jo Brooks Paperboy, Trevor Sorbie at Pride, Katie divorces (again) & Adele drops a hint

GREAT ESCAPE L

ast Wednesday saw the launch of The Great Escape music festival that showcases emerging artists from all over the world. Over 400 up and coming bands play in 35 Brighton venues. The hub this year is at the Speigeltent on Steine Gardens - now a Fringe festival stalwart and the perfect grimy venue to see a band. The band opening the festival were local lads Paperboy, fast becoming one of the hottest acts to emerge from the City - mark my words it won't be long before the band will be signed and playing larger festivals! I watched the band with Madness guitarist Chris Foreman, who was equally impressed, and coming from one of the biggest British bands in our history that is good praise indeed. If you want to catch Paperboy's next gig they will be appearing at the St Anne's Wells Garden Festival on Saturday 17th May get yourself a picnic and see this band!

SORBIE AND PRIDE

We are delighted to say that hairdressing legend Trevor Sorbie will be a part of Brighton Pride 2014 as his Brighton salon are announced as Official Partners for this year’s Pride celebrations. The salon team will be a part of both the Pride parade and the Preston Park event on August 2. The wonderful Pride ambassador and cabaret legend Dolly Rocket (pictured here with Trevor Sorbie Brighton Salon Manager, Alison Stevens) popped into the Nile Street salon to seal the deal. Alison commented; “We are incredibly excited to be supporting Brighton Pride 2014. Pride is such an important event in the city that we felt we had to come on board to show our support for the great work the organisation does in raising awareness and funds for the LGBT community.”

HUSBAND NUMBER THREE

Without doubt the hottest story of last week was the very public announcement by Katie Price that her marriage to Eastender bit-part player Kieran Hayler (husband number three) is over, after accusing him of having an affair. The reality TV personality and model posted the news on her Twitter account. The tweets made for shocking reading: “Sorry to say me and kieran are divorcing him and my best friend jane pountney bee having a full blown sexual affair for 7 months,” (sic) she wrote. She went on to say: “No human being deserves this especially being 6 months pregnant. Worse pain in the world.” Katie then posted the following statement on her website the next day: "I appreciate most people will have seen my tweets on the subject of my marriage to Kieran. I make no apologies for them though it will be appreciated that, sending them immediately after Kieran confirmed to me what he had been doing for the last 7 months, those tweets were a sign of my heart breaking. That he was doing it with a close friend of nearly 20 years is hard to understand. “This statement however is from my head, not my heart. I am appalled that someone I loved, trusted and believed in has behaved in this way. If he had so little respect for our relationship I would have hoped he would have thought about our child or the one that we have on the way. “That he did not means he will no longer be part of my life. I will do all I can to ensure he maintains a relationship with his children should he want that. “I am so grateful for the love of my children and family at this time.” Katie, now 35, has one child with Hayler – a son, Jett – who is nine months old.

ADELE ALBUM HINT

Brighton based songstress Adele has hinted that her much anticipated third album will be released later this year. After the massive, award-winning successes of 19 and 21 - the next album (which could be called 25) will be the first album since the birth of her son, Angelo. The Tottenham born singer dropped a massive hint about the album on her twitter feed, saying: “Bye Bye 25... see you again later in the year x.” I think we can take that as a pretty big hint about the title, don't you?

Catch-22

REST OF THE FEST From wartime drama to hip-hop dance battles, Brighton Festival 2014 still has plenty to offer this May

I

Sinué

(from which, as many will know, the famous phrase originated). From the absurdity of war and bureaucracy to a world of sublime acrobatics, Brussels-based performance company Circus Feria Musica continues its foray into contemporary circus arts with new creative production Sinué (21 & 22 May) at Brighton Dome Concert Hall; loosely based on Petit Jules, an illustrated tale by Anne Ducamp. Featuring stunning and skilled movement set to electro-acoustic hurdy-gurdy and bursts of percussion,

the multi-leveled set is an urban playground for the five skilled artists to explore and promises to be a family-friendly treat for all.

With the extraordinary cast of characters including Yves St Laurent, Christian Lacroix, Susan Sontag, Julian Barnes, Martin Amis and Kristin Scott-Thomas, White will mix anecdotes, serious artistic and historical concerns with the soap opera of urban life in this lively and entertaining event. Brighton Festival’s closing weekend features two very special performances. From jazz-tinged sophistication to profound spirituality, the renowned Philharmonia Orchestra (24 May) returns to Brighton Dome Concert Hall in rousing form with a range of 20th century masterpieces. Conductor John Wilson, one of the most engaging communicators in music today, makes his Festival debut with a programme that combines verve and veneration via Bernstein’s ‘Symphonic Suite’ from On the Waterfront, Ravel’s Piano Concerto In G and Stravinsky’s Symphony Of Psalms. In Brighton Dome Corn Exchange – and with tongue firmly planted in cheek – Belgian dance collective close the Festival with their show Opening Night (25 May).

And don’t forget, the critically acclaimed international festival of hip hop dance theatre Breakin’ Convention (27 & 28 May) is back in Brighton as part of Festival Extra. With high energy performances from UK and international companies alongside local Sussex-based crews, this hugely popular Sadler's Wells Production – now in its 11th year – is hosted and curated by eminent UK hip-hop theatre artist Jonzi D. The 2014 lineup includes Olivier Award-nominated ILL-Abilities, an international group of B-boys who have overcome extraordinary challenges to redefine society's view of disability, London’s Ukweli Roach, who presents an ensemble performance about temptation and vice, and France’s award-winning Wanted Posse.

PRETTY VILLAIN 11 Pics: Viv Nicholas

HUNTING for WITCHES The timeless tale of hysteria and superstition by the acclaimed American writer Arthur Miller

P

retty Villain came into being after an acclaimed, sold out production of Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire at the 2012 Brighton Festival. The company consists of a professional, award-winning director and writer, two professional actresses and a local business owner with a passion for theatre. Theirs has proven to be a formidable range of skills; however, despite their obviously very different backgrounds, the team has worked seamlessly together. Pretty Villain’s desire to produce high quality, accessible theatre in Brighton is once again on display at this year’s Brighton Fringe. The Crucible is the dramatised story of the Salem witch trials that took place in the Massachusetts Bay area around 1693. The play is in part based on reported events and is widely considered to be one of the greatest plays of the 20th Century. When the village girls of Salem are discovered dancing in the woods they are accused of witchcraft. To save themselves, they turn the accusations back on their accusers. Politicallymotivated hysteria grips the town; no one is safe from imprisonment or hanging. While a previously solid community turns on itself, one couple struggles to stand above the madness and hold on to the truth. Arthur Miller wrote the play as an allegory of McCarthyism (the 1950s investigation into alleged communism in America). He saw parallels between the McCarthy trials and the historical events of Salem, particularly in the way in which Congress demanded names of conspirators. Miller himself was convicted of ‘contempt of Congress’. In Miller’s own words: “the main point of the hearings, precisely as in 17th century Salem, was that the accused make public confession, damn his confederates and guarantee his new allegiance by breaking old vows”.

The Crucible is a play rich in themes and dynamics. You could say it’s about life under a totalitarian government and what happens to the individual who stands up to the regime. It is also seen as a comment upon what happens to a sense of community when superstition turns to hysteria and violence; there are modern-day parallels with Rwanda and Bosnia. By staging it as a promenade production, the audience and actor share the same space and the audience is placed at the heart of the action. The audience, emotionally, will leave

with more than they came with, including a connection with the actors. It’s sure to be one of the highlights of this year’s Fringe. In 2013, Pretty Villain produced The House Of Bernarda Alba and according to Plays International it was an “excellent treatment of the piece”, while the Brighton Fringe Review said it was “a well-directed and adeptly performed production”. They then performed Life x 3 – “You’ll love Life x 3” (The Latest) – and finally Underneath The Lintel: “Pretty Villain continues to impress with the authenticity of its offerings” (Plays International). Pretty Villain will stage two further shows in Brighton this year, in October “Hysteria grips the and December. for The Crucible are available from town; no one is safe Tickets The Fringe Box Office, www.brightonfringe.org or 01273 917272 from imprisonment For more information on the company or hanging” visit www.prettyvillain.com

It probably will kill me in the end, but I simply love the three weeks of art and entertainment that makes it the biggest arts festival in England and second only to Edinburgh nationally. Being as great as it is, I am amazed at some attitudes. Supposedly cultured friends seem loathe to embrace it, poo-pooing the event with statements like “Oh, we don’t do the festival”. Why not? I mean, why ever not? There is a rich menu of stuff to do and plenty of it for free. Even the paidfor events reflect a tightening of budgets with lots priced at £10 – only a few quid more than a seat at the cinema these days. The other attitude I see is snobbery. What’s in it for the common man? Well, plenty I reckon. Free events that see masses cramming into open

WIN ECOLOGIST GUIDE TO FOOD

Recent years has seen a revolution in food with even TV chefs taking notice of the virtues of organic farming and fair trade. However, as journalist Andrew Wasley discovers in his new book, there’s still many shocking practices in the food industry – from animal rights abuses to environmental disasters. With a

foreword by Conservative MP and former Ecologist editor, Zac Goldsmith, Ecologist Guide To Food draws on the magazine’s four decades of archives to examine why much of our food seems to come with a hidden price tag. However, Wasley is just as keen to assess the alternatives and champion those positive pioneers who are already going against the grain to produce food that doesn’t cost the earth. For your chance to win a copy of the book you'll have to tell us: When is World Food Day?

E

veryone’s in Venice! It’s all going down! Steph is cross with Erik for inviting Spenny; Spenny would rather take a romantic gondola ride with Jamie than Emma; Wheeze is most probably wondering what the hell she’s doing there; and there’s a deformed dwarf running around in a red raincoat stabbing people. Binks has been in bed for days. Jane is there, desperately repressing the motherly urge to wash her bed sheets, which are soiled with her daughter’s tears. The boys are playing golf and Sam is pretending that the golf ball is Stevie’s face. They throw some “Big Chat” around, and Sam calls Stevie “No Threat Stevie”. Big chat indeed from such a small, small boy. Then Riley texts Stevie asking him out. More like “So Threat Stevie”. Victoria and Sophie are sitting in a pair of strange exercise Jacuzzis. It’s a pointless scene really, but who cares – we’re just happy to watch these fabulous girls surrounded by decadent bubbles and loving life. On Stevie and Riley’s coffee date we learn that they are lying to us. They’re actually drinking ... tea! Bitter Sam, however, has been on a bitter shopping trip to bitter Liberty and bumps into these two. Did I mention he is bitter? He accidentally calls Riley a man by stating that “tea is a masculine drink”. Sam’s self respect can “The giant rose then be spotted frolicking in the bushes, naked. attached to her dress Back in Venice, Steph is all “Why are you here?” to Emma. is weighing down her Emma tries to answer, but the giant rose attached to her dress responsive synapses” is weighing down her responsive synapses. Erik makes it quite clear that he finds Spenny disgusting. We like Erik this week; he’s looking less boat-faced. Later, Spenny gets Steph alone. She tells him she would rather kiss a urine stained floor than kiss him (I added the “urine stained” bit). But alas, Spenny has bought her a Prada handbag! The only thing that Steph can possibly do now is shag him. Riley has one of these taps in her house that pours out boiling water. It means you don't need to boil the kettle. News has hit Venice that Steph and Spenny hooked up. Lucy is ashamed of Steph, and if it hadn’t been for Mark Francis totally coincidentally passing by I think Lucy would have spat in Steph’s face. Emma has a go at Steph and says “I’m not staying here anymore”, which would have more effect if it wasn’t their last night; none of them are staying there anymore. Alex texts Binky and asks to see her. And she texts back the two letters that we are all dreading: “M” “Q”! Jokes, it is actually: “O” “K”. Next week’s predictions: Stevie gives Riley some of his banana (cake); Binky will allow herself to be sucked back into Alex’s vortex of deceit, only for yet another Rumour to crop up. Next week’s episode is called “Return of the Rumour”, which is a bit like “Return of the Jedi” but with the word “Rumour” in it instead. Andrew’s blog can be read at drewjbullock.wordpress.com

ANDREW KAY’S FOOD & DRINK

Food & Drink Andrew Kay falls for the simple pleasures of Indian home cooking at Curry Leaf Cafe

Daal-icious I

first met chef Kanthi Thamma on the Live Food Stage at the Brighton and Hove Food and Drink Festival. He was there assisting his then employer, a much respected local chef and successful restaurateur. When it came to the five minute challenge section of the show, I suggested that Kanthi might do the challenge rather than his boss. They agreed, and he created one of the best dishes of the day. Since then Kanthi has done many jobs, travelled abroad to demostrate his kitchen skills and even worked as a tutor chef for Jamie Oliver – but now we have him back in his own kitchen at last, and he is cooking up a storm, not only in the Curry Leaf Cafe but on a wide range of social network and review sites. And all this within weeks of opening. I would normally leave it a while before going in to judge for myself, but the word on the street (and the net) was so hot I couldn’t resist an early meal. I was not to be disappointed. Joined by Mr L, we made an early booking on a bank holiday Sunday. We arrived at six and it was already starting to fill up; by seven they were almost full, so the old advice that ‘booking is essential’ may already be neccessary. Kanthi came out to greet us with his business partner Euan, and I suggested that we leave our menu choices to the chef. Kanthi was delighted to oblige and suggested that he create tasting platters for us to share. Perfect, I thought, lots to taste but not too much to eat. We started with some excellent mini poppadoms and a large spicy one served with a range of excellent pickles – not your standard jarred stuff, but really delighful fresh ones including a peanut sauce that was a very nice surprise.

We moved on to a plate of starters. The tandoori chicken tikka was truly juicy, packed with herb and spice flavours and had none of that scary red colouring that always looks so fake. Fish cakes were equally exciting and were protein-packed rather than starchy; a very good thing when so many fish cakes are almost entirely made of potato. At the same time there were really delicious fried potato balls – batate ambade – that more than satisfied the need for balance. The minced lamb geelafi kebab was once again a juicy delight, with well judged spicing that allowed the flavours of the lamb to live rather than drown in fire and spice. Finally, karwari jigha (prawns to you and me) in a crust of semolina that was sweet, salty and fiery. These were more than good, they were stunning. That was just for starters, but in sensible proportions. Our main courses followed the same pattern of a selection of smaller portions that would give us a cross section of dishes from the menu. One the side came three kinds of rice, each cooked perfectly, piping hot, and I have to say worthy of being differently named. I often find that rice dishes have very little different about them to justify their existence, but here each was worthwhile in its own right. On our platter there were three curries and two side dishes. I started with a dish that I know uses Kanthi’s mother’s own recipe. Nellore chapaal pulusu is a light curry of sea bream fillets in a tamarind infused sauce. I loved it. The spicing, judiciously delicate, allowed the sea bream to stand out and the tamarind gave it a vibrant lift. In contrast, murgh zafran do pyaza is a rich nutty chicken dish packed with spice and balanced by the creaminess of the nuts and seeds. This required chunks of excellent naan bread to do the essential mopping up. Hyderabadi gosht was equally delicious and in need of mopping material, too. Tender slow-cooked lamb basked in a rich sauce flavoured with garam masala and dried coconut; I was hard pressed to choose a favourite dish. Funnily enough, in the end I chose the daal, a distinctly musky stew of soft lentils that really hit the spot. Daal is so often served as a sad bowl of sloppy pulses lacking any distinguishing features, but here they were raised to magnificent. The sambar was pretty good too and wonderfully refreshing but I was, I confess, in love with the daal. We stayed with our tasting theme for dessert and tried the three icecream flavours that Kanthi has produced with Seb Cole from Boho Gelato. Coconut and lime sorbet was a cool and refreshing delight; mango and pistacchio a fragrant creamy treat, too. Top marks though to an adventurous and experimental beetroot and cardamom icecream that had us purring with delight, the sweet earthy beets matched perfectly by the warming muskiness of the spice. I loved this liaison between two great chefs. Curry Leaf Cafe is already busy – booking will be essential, I have no doubt. I cannot wait to return and next time I am going to try one of their fine loose leaf teas, too. It may be early days but this place is packed with promise already.

A RECIPE FOR SUCCESS Their quality food and ethical approach has made Coggings & Co Brighton’s best new burger restaurant

C

oggings & Co is all about great burgers made with local ingredients which have been sourced with care, prepared with skill and served with warmth. Andrew Coggings is no stranger to the restaurant hospitality scene in Brighton, having originally moved here 10 years ago as general manager at The Grand. Two years later he left to set up his own gastro-pub company and over the following seven years he won several awards and gathered quite a following at The Preston Park Tavern and The Chimney House. Whilst both pubs were recognised in many national guides, perhaps the greatest accolade was when The Preston Park Tavern was voted ‘The most sustainable pub in The UK, 2013’, which acknowledged the fantastic ethical working practices that Coggings had established over the years. When Andrew sold The Preston Park Tavern in January 2014, it didn’t take him long to find a new project. Last month, Coggings & Co opened at Seven Dials, with the specific aim of serving the best locally sourced burgers for miles around.

To help him, the whole management team from The Preston Park Tavern joined him, including the head chef and both assistant managers. This means the restaurant has been able to offer an unrivalled standard of food and service which has attracted rave reviews from the moment it opened. The key is obviously the burgers, which are handmade daily from meat supplied by Redland Farm at Horam. The cut used is chuck, which is perfect due to its richness of flavour and balance of meat and fat. When presented in a brioche style bun, it is a perfect combination which has prompted many customers to boast it’s the best burger they’ve ever tasted. But it is not only beef burgers which are a hit at Coggings & Co. The menu features free-range chicken breast burgers as well as vegetarian burgers, such as spiced cauliflower and sweetcorn fritters with cucumber raita, chilli jam and pickled carrots. All the burgers come with triplecooked chips and you even have a choice of how you want them cooked! The option of beef dripping or organic vegetable oil has been a great talking point since opening. Having made his previous operations so child-friendly, it is no surprise that the kids’ menu at Coggings & Co has proved so popular. The choice of a main course, local ice cream and a drink, all for £6.50, has led to families singing the praises of the new restaurant.

The drinks list has been given equally careful thought and the range of local beers, lagers, ciders, juices and wine is second to none. From draught Harveys and Hepworth Organic Blonde, to Wobblegate ciders and bottled beers from Harveys, Longman, Dark Star and Chapel Down, it all demonstrates the attention to sourcing from quality local suppliers which is consistent with the Coggings & Co ethos. Local wines from Bolney and Plumpton as well as organic wines from further afield also show the time and effort put in to the design of the wine list. Even the refurbishment of the restaurant itself before opening was done in the most ethical, sustainable way possible. The restaurant tables were made out of recycled pine by The Brighton Woodstore and the decorating done by local eco painters Pure Decoration. Even the artwork is local, from Brighton based photographer Heather Buckley. Coggings & Co may be new, but it has already established itself as being the best place to go for a burger in Brighton.

With Val Aviv

★ARIES {Mar 21–Apr 20}

You do need to give credence to your finances, that nagging feeling you get every time you wistfully throw caution to the wind is there to help protect you in the future should that bill come in. Love is suddenly compulsive, alarming and intoxicating; taking you into the fiery depths of being.

★TAURUS {Apr 21–May 21}

Though it may be happening in secret, your love life is probably the most important aspect of note, as the underworld god Pluto re-enacts a seduction and captivation of a feminine goddess, this time, with your ruler Aphrodite.

★GEMINI {May 22–June 21}

One friend takes you on a journey of self discovery, while mentally you’re peaking as your ruler enlivens your curiosity and your ability to readily comprehend the finer details of your innate logic. The full Moon will demand that you focus on your health, duties and work.

★CANCER {June 22–July 22}

Teaming up with a powerful individual whose motives are sincere can bring fortune into the public domain. A gentle hand and a touch of grace, steered by a focused individual helps you to direct the course of your destiny, that is not just what you long for, but what you need.

★LEO {July 23–Aug 22}

This time of year as the Sun crosses the zenith of your chart, you mustn’t shy away from public appearances and taking a firm tiller at the wheel. A little dogged determination coupled with relinquishing the need to create a drama is your best angle.

★VIRGO {Aug 23–Sep 22}

Love comes out of the blue, in the form of a person, a financial blessing from an outside source or indeed even a chance win. Momentary intoxicating romance can affect you deeply as you’re open to experimentation, it will spur on a significant change.

★LIBRA {Sep 23–Oct 22}

As your ruler is heavily imbued with the seductive forces of the universe a significant shift in personal relations spurs you on to forming alliances, which have the potential to revolutionise the existing game plan.

★SCORPIO {Oct 23–Nov 21}

A pleasant turn of events sees you making some positive changes at work, not just regarding the actual work that you do, but how you relate to co-workers in your field. The full Moon in your sign brings light to suppressed emotions.

★SAGITTARIUS {Nov 22–Dec 20}

A sudden romantic fascination could be the vehicle to inner transformation, although there is no guarantee that this need be a long drawn-out affair. Keeping secrets will not serve you well, as Mercury insists that a little logical communion with a significant other pays dividends.

★CAPRICORN {Dec 21–Jan 19}

The road to personal power is not an easy one. As the hero on his journey must learn many lessons; that of letting go, being the most heartrending of all. What you can find through acceptance, can lead to a breakthrough.

★AQUARIUS {Jan 20–Feb 19}

When you allow things to stagnate, a pressure builds and generates the motivation to give birth to new life. On the ever spinning wheel of fate, there are moments when you can actively be the initiator in your private drama. Believe you can, and it will be so.

★PISCES {Feb 20–Mar 20}

The longing to escape the humdrum demands of daily life may leave you feeling a little deflated. Don’t get down in the mouth now, not when the universe has set up a beautiful alignment which should bring forth new prospects with big rewards.

Right fright Behind the scenes of Latest TV with Richard Shayler

W

hat’s that noise? Huh, who’s there? Argghhhhh! Oh, phew it was just the printer... But I’m the only one in the office!? GHHHHOOSSSSTTSSSS!! Oh hang on one ghastly minute, how to write a TV blog for an up and coming TV channel? Yeah, that’s my print out... I’ve got every right to be jumpy though, readers, because one of the pieces we filmed this week was the fantastic Ghost Walks of The Lanes. Headed by the brilliant Silas (Rob Marks at the weekends) our newest presenter and Juice FM’s very own Guy Lloyd went down to learn all about the dark spirits who have been haunting city locations for years. Guy started off very confidently but slowly got more and more scared. He kept it together right until the end and didn’t even need the spare pair of underwear he had brought. I wish the same could have been said about his cameraman. But I can’t, because I was that cameraman... Moving swiftly on, we swapped pants for plants as we headed down to Architectural Plants in Horsham. What a stunning place! Essentially it is a garden centre, but it really is so much more than that. We were shown around by gardening guru Paul Donovan. As well as being a knowledgeable bunch about how to transform any dilapidated plot into a stunning garden, the staff there also have a considerable collection of exotic plants, trees and foliage. This includes an impressive plot of bamboo shrubs, one of which Paul believes to be the biggest in the country – a fact that quite simply bamboozled the whole team! Box trees on stilts, Japanese acers, huge bonsai trees, shearing lessons, landscape gardening tips and an amazing coffee machine with biscuits were just some of the experiences

the team took away from the day. When we got back to the office everyone said that they were green with envy, and that we should make like a tree and leaf before they got angry. Not sure if they were joking or not, but safe to say we ‘shooted’ out of there. Elsewhere, we jumped right into the 21st century by capturing our very own Angi Mariani as her head turned into a piece of modern art. We went down to City College Brighton & Hove to witness our Ang join Rohan Lowe in having their heads examined for the state-of-the-art 3D scanning. Rohan wasn’t quite sure about the whole thing at first, but eventually put a brave face on and headed down there early. He wanted to stay ahead in the art game and was heard to describe his mood as apprehensive and heady. After the shoot however, he said he had never felt better. Stronger, even. One could describe his disposition as HEADstrong. You should definitely all HEAD down! On a serious note, chancellor George Osborne came to town to announce the release of £420 million for the redevelopment of Brighton's Royal Sussex County Hospital. Planning permission for the major scheme, which will see some of its 19th century buildings demolished, was granted more than two years ago. So we asked the chancellor why it took him so long to sign off the deal. To see our report, visit www.thelatest.tv. And finally, as you're all aware, it's festival season in our amazing city. From international acts to emerging musical acts and enthusiastic school children, the next few weeks will see Brighton & Hove turned into a hub of fun, frenzy and fantastic entertainment. And we will be out and about filming the highlights. Make sure you stay tuned to www.thelatest.tv to see what we've been up to! See you next week – that's if I can brave the office after being spooked! For more details, check out www.thelatest.co.uk and www.thelatest.tv

SUN-SHINE

SUN Concert Hall, Brighton Dome, 3 May 2014 ✪✪✪✪✪

H

ofesh Shechter is an extraordinary talent and Sun a vibrant work that poses the seemingly simple question about good and bad. But perhaps that simplicity is his intent; the cardboard cut-outs a comment on our own simplistic attitudes to black and white, good and evil. What is not simple is his extraordinary skill in creating complex and stirring visual theatre. His use of sound is second to none, his use of light, and often the lack of it, is genius. Shechter is certainly not afraid of the dark – in every sense. His dancers are a fluid but precisely drilled team, at times merging in the dim, misty gloom into one amorphous seething mass and at others critically sharp, violently exposed and dangerous. And in that is perhaps a key, to a love of danger, of the darkness in us all. I hope one day to see this immense talent express tenderness and love using his incredible physical and visual vocabulary. Andrew Kay

HEDWIG & THE ANGRY INCH

With its diamond shaped set, it was like being on stage with the band as they kicked off with their heavy rock opener. This outlandish yet poignant stage and film piece is a gig, monologue and ensemble effort combined to make for a captivating, funny and excellently executed show. The band were well-rehearsed but the supporting actors seemed a little nervous. The titular character, played coquettishly by Fintan Shevlin, absolutely stole the show, improvising with local references while getting up close and personal with the audience, and thoroughly deserved the standing ovation. A unique revival that felt fresh and truly exciting. New Venture Theatre, 2 May 2014 ✪✪✪✪✪ Steve Clements

BOB AND JIM: SEX FIRE

Bob and Jim have sparkling cockney repartee from the off, utilising ‘all of the kinds of comedy’ from mime to musical, all the while with both feet firmly planted in a land inhabited by Chas’n'Dave and music hall chutzpah. Special highlights included their own choreographed celebration of feminism, as well as a collection of old school party games involving the audience. Occasionally a section fell a little flat – like the slightly stretched costume changes – but it was clear they could see this and were mentally tweaking it for next time. A gloriously fun hour, for the most part, from two hugely likeable performers. The Burrow, 5 May 2014 ✪✪✪✪✪ Andrew Connal

WHAT’S ON STAGE

STAGE: GARDEN OF DUBIOUS DELIGHTS Peter Whelan’s The Herbal Bed is New Venture’s June production

“Y

ou must not presume to think you know the extent of the dark kingdom, Mistress Hall, or the furthest reach of Satan’s grasp. Even here in the shadows of this holy place he can stand breathing at our shoulder.” Based on actual events which occurred in Stratford upon Avon in the summer of 1613 and written by Whelan in 1966 (author of Great War morality in The Accrington Pals), this play looks at universal themes of love, marriage, loyalty, independence and social class. Whilst set in Elizabethan England it is written in accessible modern language for a modern audience. It is difficult to imagine the world-view of people in the early seventeenth century. The separation between social classes was rigidly enforced and the moral rule of the Church was absolute – partly out of feudal deference, but also because of an absolute belief in an afterlife and the possibility of eternal

damnation. Peter Whelan takes his audience close to understanding this in The Herbal Bed. Set in Stratford upon Avon in the summer of 1613, Susanna, William Shakespeare’s eldest daughter, is accused of adultery with family friend and neighbour Rafe Smith. Her husband, respected physician John Hall, is desperate to clear the family name and pushes her to sue for slander. But how can they avoid the fact that one summer’s night while her husband was away, Rafe Smith was seen secretly leaving their herbal garden? This is a serious charge, and three people’s private lives are subject to the glare of intense public scrutiny in this tale of passion, loyalty, independence and religion. The case ends up before an Ecclesiastical Court, where the family’s souls, as well as their moral reputations, are in danger. The action takes place mainly in the ’physic’ garden where many

medicinal herbs were grown, and in the doctor’s dispensary adjoining the family house. Director Tamsin Fraser is staging the piece in New Venture's Studio space, which will place the audience very close to the action. She aims to create a period feel for the piece, but to 'sketch in' locations rather than have overelaborate, realistic sets which might get in the way of the gripping dialogue of this unforgettable drama. The Herbal Bed, New Venture Theatre, 20-28 June 2014, 7.45pm (No Monday eve). Matinee: Sun 22 June at 2.30pm. Tickets for the show are available £9 (Final Fri/Sat £10) First Fri & Tues all tickets £7 and can be purchased online at www.newventure.org.uk for further details phone Box Office Information on 01273 746118 STAGE: AWAY FROM HOME It is the UK, 2014 – The Civil Partnership Act is ten years old, same sex marriage passes into law, and it is a criminal offence to stir up hatred against people on grounds of their sexual orientation. After years of struggle the final stigmas have been removed. It is okay to be gay and being out isn’t an issue. And yet, homosexuality remains a taboo

23

subject in English football. Not one of Britain’s 5,000 professional players is openly gay. The national sport is leagues behind. Hot on the heels of the retired Aston Villa player Thomas Hitzlsperger revealing that he is gay, theatre producers Working Progress Theatre Company and Hartshorn Hook Productions announce the tour and London run of Away From Home, a visceral new play that tackles the issue of homophobia in English football. Kyle is comfortable with his life as a male escort until the day he is hired by a premiership footballer, and finds himself falling in love. But can Kyle maintain a relationship with a closeted footballer in a country where not one pro player is out? Can he go on pretending that the homophobia endemic in the game is nothing to do with him? Does he know what a relationship means, when, for him, sex has only ever been a transaction? Can he ever tell his friends – and his family – the truth? Away From Home premiered last summer when it was granted the great honour of opening The 24:7 Theatre Festival, Manchester’s annual new writing extravaganza. It is co-written by Rob Ward and Martin Jameson, whom, with three decades experience in theatre, TV and radio (Casualty, Emmerdale, Holby City and numerous dramas for BBC Radio 4), also directs. Ward, taking the part of Kyle, is a founder of Working Progress Theatre Company. Playing to packed houses, garnering rave reviews and receiving standing ovations, Rob Ward won the Audience Award for Best Actor at 24:7 and the work took the North West Equity Vicky Allen Memorial Award for best production. It has also recently been nominated for three Manchester Theatre Awards and won best new play, best fringe and best fringe performance. This production of Away From Home is supported by The Arts Council of Great Britain. Away From Home, 22-26 May, Marlborough Theatre 01273 273870

COMEDY: KEVIN ELDON INTERVIEW Award-winning comic, actor, comedy collaborator and more, Kevin Eldon, headlines an awesome line-up for The Neuro Foundation. He spoke with Victoria Nangle. How are you today? Slight neck ache, but otherwise generally filled with at least one joy of spring. What got you involved in this fundraiser for The Neuro Foundation? I was approached by a local guy Jay Law via a comedian friend of mine Simon Munnery. Jay's son suffers from neurofibromatosis. Neurofibromatosis is a genetic condition that mainly affects the nervous system and skin, but it can vary hugely from person to person. It causes tumors to grow, so in serious cases can be life threatening. There's currently no cure. All money raised from the

gig will go to The Neuro Foundation who fund research into the condition. The foundation also have 6 nurses on staff (more needed) who provide guidelines and assistance to GPs, schools etc across the country and they provide a support network to people all over the world affected by neurofibromatosis. They rely entirely on donations as they don’t receive any government funding, so every penny counts. For more details go to www.nfauk.org.

It’s a cracking line-up – with John Kearns, Ed Aczel and Benny Boot to name a few. How involved were you in gathering them together? I’d be fibbing if I said I’d hand picked them – due to a communication cock-up I was only able to confirm comparatively late in the day. However, I’m delighted and honoured to be sharing the bill with such a talented bunch. I thoroughly enjoyed your musical shenanigans at the concert celebrating Nick Pynn at the Dome’s Concert Hall not long ago. Will we be treated to more melodic treats? Not so much more, as possibly mostly the same. But I’ll do them all in a different accent and say different things between them. You have worked with some legends of comedy – from Chris Morris in Jam to a wonderful double act with Bill Bailey clearly influenced by

European electronica. Is there anyone you’ve yet to work with who you’d like to, comedically? Vic and Bob’d be a real thrill. I love em. What is the most bizarre thing you’ve done in the name of entertainment? I’ve travelled to Leicester. Do you have another award-winning solo show in the wings waiting for this year’s Edinburgh Fringe? I don’t. I don’t even have a flop waiting in the wings. I spent about two days in January contemplating doing another one but then I found my shoulders had fossilised with the very thought and I gave myself another year off. Maybe next year I’ll finally get round to tackling that difficult second solo show. What are your plans for the next 12 months? I’ll hopefully just keep doing what I usually do which is to throw myself into various telly, film, live and radio projects. Plus the writing. Oh and there’s the missus and little un. I’m rather fond of them, don’t you know, so we’ll be hanging out, shopping, going down slides, arguing about ice cream consumption, that sort of thing. In reference to that – what would you like for Christmas? Driving gloves and aftershave please. What non-comedic/performance ambition is still nagging at you to be fulfilled? I’d like to play Albert Tatlock in the stage show ‘Coronation Street – The Sharples Years’. Anybody under 50, I’m afraid you’ll have to google that. Thank you very much. Have a glorious rest of your day. And you and you and you. Kevin Eldon And Some Colleagues, Sat 17 May (1.30pm), £12/10, Brighthelm Church & Community Centre, boxoffice.brightonfringe.org

MUSIC: BARRENCE WHITFIELD & THE SAVAGES Jeff Hemmings talks with Barrence Whitfield

G

etting on 60, there seems to be no letting up with Barrence Whitfield, a highly energetic performer who, along with his dirty soul and rock’n’roll band, has been enjoying a new lease of life of late. Firstly, there was the first album for nearly 20 years, Did The Savage Soul, and then an appearance on Later... With Jools Holland. “Yeah, we had a good time doing that,” says Barrence. “Jools kept thanking us for being on the show.” Barrence Whitfield & The Savages released their first record back in 1984. “I’m from Florida, grew up in New Jersey and then went to Boston University, where I was there for the blink of an eye, and then went to Emerson University, and kinda dropped out of there and that was where the band started. I studied journalism, I wanted to be TV anchorman – not the man in the movie! – but more a serious newsman. “But music was always in the blood, and I met Peter Greenberg (of garage rockers The Lyres) and that was where the candle got lit.” With Greenberg, they concocted a fearsome blend of gritty soul, r’n’b, rock’n’roll, with influences such as Little Richard, Otis Redding, James Brown, and Boston’s legendary garage-rockers The Standells at the forefront. And, as luck would have it, someone from the UK came a-knockin... “Andy Kershaw had a friend called David Woodhead, who was playing with Billy Bragg, and they were playing the Washington DC area, and he had a friend who turned him onto our first record. He brought it back to Kershaw in the UK, and he played it on Radio One. And as Kershaw later described it to me, his head went through the ceiling, he just went nuts. Six months later he came over to Boston to see us. and to film a segment for The Old Grey Whistle Test. The next year we went over to Britain to play. I owe it all to Andy Kershaw and other guys like John Peel, who championed my work.” Live, Barrence is a force of nature, truly a man on fire. “I enjoy doing what I do, I have fun, I love to entertain, and to see the faces of the people in the audience. You light my fuse, and I’m like dynamite, like TNT, nitroglycerin. “It’s music that all can appreciate – if want to dance, if you want to scream, if you want to dive on the floor and act a fool, or if you want to yell at me, it’s fun and it’s exciting. It’s not dangerous, except to your health!” The Haunt, Friday 16 May, 7pm, £12.50 Follow me: latestjeff

T

here’s more to life than books – there’s also talks about books. Brighton Festival has plenty to offer this week, including a graphic artist, an atheist and a whole lot of missing Romanians. If the Farage vs Clegg debates are anything to go by, a lot of people’s take on immigration seems to be based on apocryphal anecdotes and stats they heard in the pub. We’d like to think that without the obligation to score party political points, The Immigration Debate (Dome, Sat 17 May) will be more productive in addressing the issues. Is multiculturalism a myth? Are they coming for your jobs? Who are ’they’ anyway? Find out at this panel debate with outspoken Times journo David Aaronovitch, former equality commissioner Trevor Phillips, academic Paul Statham and historian Dr Madge Dresser. Simon Fanshawe, as usual, is on hand to chair the meeting. What they really need are some decent infographics. Author and designer, David McCandless, might be able to help (Dome, Thu 15 May). Discussing his book, Information Is Beautiful, David talks about the power and elegance of visualised information – which he uses to tell stories and coax out connections from data that might otherwise be impenetrable or simply overwhelming. It’s at the point where art meets maths (a good Venn diagram would explain it nicely), so it was always going to be geeky. It’s also probably the first and only time a graphic designer has managed to turn his day job into a stage show. AC Grayling (Corn Exchange, Sun 18 May), on the other hand, is probably the first and only author to rewrite the Bible from an atheist perspective. If that strikes you as sort of self-important, you might want to ponder the reason he felt it necessary. Hear the man speak and you may well find yourself siding with this philosopher and humanist. A master of measured argument, AC is a common-sense rationalist with an affable donnish manner and a somewhat silly silver mane. His latest book, The God Argument, sees him continue the good fight against the good book with a calm, uncontroversial stance – a far cry from the froth and fury of Richard Dawkins’ God-baiting antics. However, since Brighton is considered the most secular place in Britain, we’re curious why it’s here that he’s chosen to preach to the unconverted. Maybe God knows.

TOTALLY COMPREHENSIVE!

P

op punk gets a bad rep. Punk in general, actually. The seventies spit-andsafety-pin scene had some air of respectability behind the sneer in its politics, but all that dirt and heroin made it impossible to break into the mainstream. Instead, the original punks grew up and sold it back to their children in the pop punk of the nineties. By then, Thatcherism was so deeply entrenched that the only rebellion was against teachers or parents, with brattish 30-year-olds like Blink 182 or Sum 41 whining on MTV between McDonald’s adverts about not wanting to grow up. The three chord simplicity of the first wave was a template to empower those with little or no training to find a voice for the feelings of disenfranchisement; somehow most 90s bands sang about dicks, tits and frat-boy pool parties and got away with it. Noughties’ emo carried some of the musical themes along with the existential crises that advertising’s psychological warfare created, but it seems there has been a punk renaissance of late with Cloud Nothings, Speedy Ortiz and Joanna Gruesome. Canadian band Pup have just released their debut album, carrying all the same energy of their predecessors but with more latent skill and less impudent belly-aching. They are musicians first and foremost, simply choosing the palette of punk to explore their boundaries. They’ll be showcasing the record full of guitar solos and skipping time-signatures at The Haunt on Tuesday night. Brighton’s Shrine will be at Brighton Electric on Wednesday, heading up a night full of niche-rock bands. Math-, post- and prog- are the main prefixes here, but with support from Vasa, The Doppler Shift and Porshyne, it’s the pick of the night. Birdskulls fuzz up and slow down the punk sound to give it more of the Dinosaur Jr/Mineral feel that was concurrent with grunge. Supported by Hindsights, Milk Teeth and Echo Rain, they’re at the Hope on Thursday for a fiver and Cosmic Thoughts round off our punk history week at Fitzherberts on Friday. If that all sounds like too much hard work, save your pennies for the weekend, where the critically acclaimed electronic trio Factory Floor will be starting a party with Drohne and AK/DK at Coalition on Saturday, before winding down to Bo Ningen’s psychedelia at the Haunt or a new, improved (read: sober) Cat Power at the Dome on Sunday.

tuesday 13 The Mentalist Channel Five, 10pm You know how Jane killed Red John at the end of the last series but then got hooked in to help the powers that be fight crime again? Yeah, seems not everyone has forgotten that Jane shot a man (insert your own Johnny Cash voice there), and a grand jury is empanelled to determine whether he should be tried for murder.

Monks BBC1, 10.40pm From the new series of Comedy Playhouse comes this little gem, starring Brighton’s very own Seann Walsh as chief protagonist Gary. Gary has been defrauding the dole office for ten years and when faced with a long stretch inside decides he can join a religious order to save himself. A doddle, right? Yup.

The Vampire Diaries ITV2, 9pm Vampires. You’d think that being young and beautiful forever would be enough, but even eternal life gets complicated. Damon determines to protect Stefan and Elena by keeping them in the cabin, but soon his curiosity gets the better of him as he tries to uncover their secret. Jeremy is kept in the dark. Nice.
