MON 30 SEPT - SAT 5 OCT One of the longest-running shows in West End and Broadway history, Andrew LloydWebber’s CATS will come to Royal & Derngate from Monday 30 September to Saturday 5 October. Based on TS Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s record-breaking adaptation features one of his most memorable musical scores, spectacular set design, extraordinary costumes and stunning choreography, making CATS is a uniquely magical musical. On just one special night of the year, all Jellicle cats meet at the Jellicle Ball where Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benev-

olent leader, makes the Jellicle choice and announces which of them will go up to the heaviside layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life. Music, dance and verse fuse together in an enchanting blend of fantasy, drama and romance. CATS opened at the New London Theatre in 1981 (winning an Olivier Award for Best Musical) and played almost 9,000 performances. It closed in 2002 having celebrated 21 recordbreaking years. On Broadway it was the winner of 7 Tony Awards (including Best Musical and Best Director) and ran for an amazing 18 years making it second only to The Phantom Of The Opera as Broadway’s longest running musical.

CATS continues to be a worldwide musical phenomenon, seen by over 50 million people, in over 300 cities in 26 countries around the world. It was last seen in the UK in 2008 where it enjoyed a hugely successful tour playing to sell-out audiences across the country. CATS takes to the Derngate stage from Monday 30 September to Saturday 5 October, starting at 7.30pm each evening, with matinees at 2.30pm on Wednesday and Saturday. Tickets priced from £15 to £38 can be booked by calling Box Office on 01604 624811 or online at www.royalandderngate.co.uk

Ha Ha Holmes! 4UBSSJOH+PF1BTRVBMF FRIDAY 27 SEPTEMBER There’s a beast on the moors, a crime to be solved, and with the Ha Ha team on the case – what can go right?! Starring nation’s favourite Joe Pasquale, Ha Ha Holmes! as Sherlock Holmes, this hilarious adventure takes place on Fri 27 Sep, 7.30pm. You’d be absolutely barking mad to miss this pipe-smoking new show from theatre’s funniest parodists as Holmes and Watson embark on their most dangerous adventure yet ... hunting down The Hound of The Baskervilles. It’s elementary! It’s also downright hilarious as comedic national treasure Joe Pasquale takes on the role of Sherlock Holmes. As one of the UK’s top stand-ups Joe brings mirthful merriness to the proceeding,

but will he be skating on thin ice? With writer Ben Langley as Doctor Watson and Andrew Fettes as everyone else, this sure-fire wonderfully ridiculous show is well worth an investigation. Has the beast bitten off more than he can chew when confronted by our crime stopping team? Will Holmes find his deerstalker and will the deer be happy when he does? Stick some shag in your pipe and visit 221b Baker Street for the most gripping comic caper of the age! Tickets for HA HA HOLMES! are priced £20 and can be purchased by calling the Box Office on 01933 270 007 or online at www.thecastle.org.uk

One of the world’s favourite musicals, Fiddler on the Roof is directed and choreographed by Craig Revel Horwood, the Strictly Come Dancing judge and master of the musical stage. This exciting new production will visit the Theatre Royal Nottingham from 17-21 September as part of a major UK and Ireland tour. Fiddler on the Roof is one of the most popular and beloved of all stage musicals and one of Broadway’s longest-running of all time with a marathon run of over 13 years and over 3,000 performances from its pre-

miere in 1964. It won nine Tony Awards, had four Broadway revivals and was made into a film of the same name starring Topol. This new production captures all the emotions of laughter and joy to tears and sadness and is filled to the brim with memorable and instantly recognisable songs including

If I Were a Rich Man, Matchmaker Matchmaker, Sunrise Sunset, To Life, Tradition and many more. Tevye, the local milkman in his village of Anatevka, has always stuck by his traditions but suddenly his headstrong daughters decide that they want to marry for love rather

than accept whatever Yente the Matchmaker comes up with. Tevye loves his daughters but has to convince his wife, and the villagers, that their decisions are actually falling in with tradition. Even if it means conjuring up ghosts of dead wives and scaring his own wife to bits in order to get her to agree. Tradition is all well and good but, in the end, the world moves on, as do the villagers but maybe not for the reasons they would have liked.

Laughing Matters

Fri 13 Sept PURPLE VAN MAN: SEAN LOCK De Montfort Hall, Leicester

#FOFäU'VOESBJTFSJOBU5IF /PUUJOHIBN3PZBM$PODFSU)BMM FRIDAY 13 SEPTEMBER ‘Laughing Matters’ started life as a project at the University of Nottingham in 2012 to come up with a new social enterprise. JTT realised that the skills and techniques used by stand up comedians could be used to tackle many of the problems faced by certain social groups such as those recovering from addiction. We decided to develop comedy based workshops with a focus on creative writing, stage presence and performance with the aim of helping to increase confidence and self-esteem, develop creativity and effective communication skills. Fast forward to May 2013 and the first ‘Laughing Matters’ Pilot featuring participants with past experiences of substance misuse took place.

What struck a chord the most was the fact that so many people were willing to give the course a go. Ask most people if they could write and perform their own comedy material in front of an audience in as little as four weeks and they would run a mile. However, we found that in the right safe and supportive environment people are willing to open up, speak up and have fun. Participants were able to gain a real sense of achievement from their work and develop skills that can benefit them in many areas of their life. Importantly the courses can offer a unique shared experience which can bring out the funny people often didn’t even know they had !

Jack has been kept away from the live comedy stage by appearances on shows like QI and Never Mind The Buzzcocks, 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Have I Got News For You, co-writing and starring in four series of BBC 2’s hit sitcom Lead Balloon and writing his memoirs, Thanks For Nothing, which he modestly dedicated to himself (‘Without whom none of this would have been possible’). He has settled in admirably as host of Radio 4’s legendary I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue, filling the shoes of the late, great Humphrey Lyttleton with

slightest annoyances and misdemeanours. The new tour will see him back doing what he does best, wringing hilarity from life’s many disappointments.

So what prompted his decision to return to touring? “I want to spend less time with my family”, Jack says.

Pink Floyd fans are in for a treat when one of the UK’s top tribute bands The UK Pink Floyd Experience comes to our region this September, performing some of the group’s greatest hits from the ‘60s and ‘70s. The nine-piece band replicates perfectly the authentic sounds of Pink Floyd, performing songs from albums such as Piper At The Gates Of Dawn, Sauer Full Of Secrets, Atom Heart Mother, Meddle, Dark Side Of The Moon, Wish You Were Here, Ummagumma, Animals and The Wall, in the ultimate tribute to the iconic band.

The nine band members are all seasoned musicians, with the line up including three choreographed and costumed female backing vocalists. Lead vocalist and guitarist Paul Andrews fronts the band, with a voice that is remarkably similar to David Gilmour’s, replicating every nuance and intonation. With the state-of-the-art sound and a spectacular light show, the concert aims to recreate the atmosphere of a real Pink Floyd live show.

A first of its kind; the production tours the UK this Autumn beginning at the Royal Festival Hall, London. The show is a unique audio-

visual collaboration between electronic music pioneer Scanner, Heritage Orchestra, and visual artist Matt Watkins. This sonic and visual spectacle turns the tables on the conventional concert experience. Rather than classical interpretations or cover versions, Live_Transmission is a fearless dismantling of Joy Division’s visual and musical motifs, creating a hugely powerful immersive event that pays homage to the signature spirit that defined the group as one of the world’s

most progressive bands. The entire show pivots around the virtuosic ferocity of drummer Adam Betts, guitarist Matt Calvert (both of instrumental noise-rock band Three Trapped Tigers) and bassist John Calvert (Ghostpoet).

ART AND CULTURE NEAR YOU...

Ronnie Wood

4JHOFEMJNJUFEFEJUJPOTOPX BWBJMBCMFBU$SPGU8JOHBUFT(BMMFSZ Ronnie Wood, born in 1947 in Middlesex, born into a musical and artistic family. Before beginning his musical career he received formal art training at Ealing College of Art, London. Throughout the years, the artist and the musician have been

inseparable. As his musical career progressed, Ronnie continued his passion for painting and drawing; his subjects ranging from band members and musicians he admired, knew and sometimes played with, to family and close friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and of course, the self-portrait. It is as natural to find him with a pencil as with a guitar, drawing portraits of contemporaries and finding inspiration from his musical influences. Wood has been painting and sketching ever since he was a child and is a passionate and dedicated artist, taking inspiration from artists such as Egon Schiele, Henri Matisse, Vincent Van Gogh and Pablo Picasso. Nowadays Wood is adept at creating pieces from landscapes, to portraiture, abstract to architectural; creating his original pieces in charcoals, oils, watercolours, spray paints, oil pastels and acrylics. Varying his style and his medium depending on the feeling or mood he is trying to evoke with his work. Painting at full throttle, and with technical prowess, Wood gives the art lover an exhilarating and thrilling front row view of the Stones on stage,

12

WOW Issue 57

as his vibrant paintings convey the electricity of a live performance. The intensity that Ronnie Wood brings to his guitar playing on stage is brilliantly echoed on canvas and paper as he translates the rawness of a Rolling Stones performance through rhythmic lines, bold colours and awesomely accurate facial expressions.

ust in case you thought it wasn’t possible to improve a classic English country pub such as The Fox Inn in Hallaton, be prepared for a surprise, because the proprietors Wendy and Mass have just made three huge strides forward for our comfort, satisfaction and delight. Not only has the recent reburbishment has been a huge success, there are plans afoot for some splendid additions to

the traditionally local, seasonal menu for the coming autumn... and, perhaps most exciting of all, to open a vintage shop on the premises. With its sunny garden by the village pond, there’s no more relaxing or entertaining spot for a late-summer drink watching the ducks and moorhens indulge in their laid-back disputes. And as the autumn nights draw in, new life has been breathed into the old pace by the subtle refurbishment which has seen the cosy bar and dining room joined together to allow warmth and laughter to flow through the whole pub. Entirely traditional in feel, the pub now works better for everyone sampling the

Woodford’s Wherry Norfolk Ale and the procession of great guest beers that have recently led to a Cask Marque Award. Where the Fox menu has always boasted fresh, seasonal ingredients in their hearty and wholesome pies, meaty platters and home-made soups, Mass and Wendy are about to up the ante in style: “The shooting season starts at the beginning of September,” Mass announces, “so we’ll be introducing dishes featuring local game – pheasant and partridge and more.” And discerning shoppers across Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Rutland will be excited to hear of Wendy’s plans

to open a shop at The Fox, a sister establishment to The Nook, the thriving vintage and gifts shop next to the Falcon in Uppingham. “Watch this space!” Wendy says of the outbuilding at the back of the pub, currently being given a stylish spruce up. “There’ll be furniture and clothing, posters and paintings, lots of gift ideas, old and new. We plan to open for business in October!” THE FOX INN, North End, Hallaton, Market Harborough, Leicestershire LE16 8UJ Tel: 01858 555278

Take A ‘Short Cut’ To Wainwrights 4IPSUIBJSTUZMFTBSFFWFSZXIFSFUIJTTFBTPO We’ve spotted all the latest celebrities with super short hairstyles & pixie cuts including Beyonce, Michelle Williams, Emma Watson and the gorgeous Halle Berry! Short hairstyles are having a super stylish moment for 2013. Be bold and call in for a consultation at Wainwright’s and get a little inspiration from these celebrities who prove that short hair can be super versatile and perfect for summer.

Suitable for all hair types from thin to thick hair, curly to straight, and whether you’re looking for a style to

suit round faces or long faces, short haircuts and bob’s are the easiest way to add instant chic to your everyday style. For the ultimate in daring short hairdos, look no further than Anne Hathaway and her short hair pixie crop. Growing out her cropped hairstyle into a slightly longer hairdo, Anne shows just how many different styles her short hair can pull off with effortless ease. And if the crop isn’t quite for you, why not opt for a short bob hairstyle instead a la Victoria’s Secret model Karlie Kloss. Her glossy bobbed hairstyle is the perfect style for round face shapes. Just add red lipstick. Another short hairstyle pioneer has to be Michelle Williams with her elfin crop. Growing it out into a cool asymmetric but still short hairstyle, this is the perfect haircut to rock if you’re looking to go a little more edgy with your ‘do. The crop’s and Bob’s moment has officially arrived. Get ready for hair liberation and get down to Wainwright’s in Bennett’s place.

Prolagene Gel has been a very unique product over any other product I have ever used, it is perfect for burns, sunburn, scars, anti ageing, soothing and acne. It was originally used in a burns unit in France back in the 70â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.

Containing L-Proline, Decleor thought why not create a new range based on the gel, with the technology for a new anti ageing rage. L-Proline and Soy Extract make the iconic L-Proline Complex to boost collagen and tightens the skin support structure. To enhance the L-Proline Complex is Iris Essential Oil which increases cell renewal and our â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;heroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ingredient Hylauronic Acid which plumps the skin with moisture. By using Decleor Aromessence Iris Serum and the new Prolagene Lift - Lift & Firm Day Cream = 81% Firmer Skin in 28 days, clinically proven! Six products make the range complete. Lift & Firm Day Cream for Normal skin - 3D Effect lifting and firming day cream for skin lacking in firmness to rejuvenate the skin by lifting, tightening and smoothing.

Lift & Firm Day Cream for Dry skin- this is the same as the cream for normal skin, it just has an added ingredient Oleo15 which is 15 times more concentrated than Olive Oil, to give the skin more comfort for a drier skin. Lift & Brighten Eye CreamDouble action eye cream, for eyes contours lacking in firmness and radiance, with antiwrinkle, anti-puffiness, anti-dark circles effects. Exclusive massage application technique to enhance drainage, lift and firm the eye kids. Intense Youth Concentratethis is the most exciting product!

FRI 20 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; THUR 26 SEPT The latest film from Richard Curtis (Notting Hill, Love Actually) is a rare thing, a romantic sci-fi comedy, guaranteed to please all film goers. About Time stars Bill Nighy, Domhnall Gleeson and Rachel McAdams. Tim (Gleeson) learns from his father (Nighy) that the men of the family can travel through time, and although this doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t extend to changing history, Tim determines to find a new girlfriend and make the world a better place. Neither ambition proves easy to accomplish, but after moving from Cornwall to train as a lawyer in London he eventually meets the gorgeous but diffident Mary (McAdams).

n all our long and pleasurable years of dining out across Leicestershire and Northamptonshire, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve rarely come across any establishment that pays so much attention to the

preparation and presentation of a menu â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to the whole dining experience â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as the Swan at Braybrooke. The stylish restaurant and pub scores immediately on atmosphere and history, welcome and comfort; but the Swanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s menu takes far longer to prepare, and a blissful time to appreciate. To proprietors Jo and Tremain, together with Head Chef Djafar, the food served up here is a real labour of love â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with local, fresh, seasonal ingredients of premium quality sought out with obvious enthusiasm and pride. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve crafted a

donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to mention WOW when you book your table

menu to appeal to those who enjoy the modern British favourites,â&#x20AC;? Jo says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;as well as foodies who prefer a bit of flair!â&#x20AC;? The result of the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ethos can be tasted in every mouthful of every dish on the menu, none more impressive than the Chefâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Specials which change twice weekly. They offer such delights as the smoky, exotic Avocado Diverso starter (avocado served with crab meat & smoked English trout and finished with horseradish and marie rose sauce, ÂŁ6.95) and mains as irresistible as Salmon Fillet Thai Broth (ÂŁ13.95) and Mixed Pork Casserole (Pork Fillet, sausage and bacon slowly

cooked with mixed beans, topped with smoked duck and rustic bread, ÂŁ10.95). The Swan comes heartily recommended for evening meals and Sunday lunches â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not forgetting the homemade ice-cream! â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but the final word goes to the man behind the scenes. Head Chef Djafar has worked in Richard Bransonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s London restaurant â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Babylon at the Roof Gardens â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and more recently as head chef at San Carlo in Leicester. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sure youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find something tempting on the menu,â&#x20AC;? says Djafar, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and we look forward to welcoming you to The Swan.â&#x20AC;?

A partner in the Leicestershire law firm since 1987, Martin is head of Bray & Bray’s department looking after Wills, Probate and Powers of Attorney.

Martin’s business credentials, professional expertise and astonishing list of private interests all begin to run together as soon as you meet

the man himself. That’s because his work and private life all revolve around people: there’s just no disguising his interest in getting to know clients, colleagues, local people, even humble interviewers! It’s this good humour and keenness to interact that have led Martin into all kinds of community work – “giving something back to the community that has been so kind to my business and my family,” he says, referring to his 21 years working behind the scenes on Harborough’s

Late-Night Shopping Committee and Harborough Improvement Team. A former Round Tabler, he also gives his time to the local Chamber of Trade and Lions Club, often accompanied by his wife, Cllr. Dr. Sarah Hill. Martin’s many “interests and enthusiasms” include fine food and wine, and all things automotive. “I’m a very good cook,” he admits, putting his ultra-productive use of time down to not owning a TV. “I make all my own sausage and brawn, and cure my own

bacon. I’ve got a labrador. And a go-kart... and a tractor!” Be sure and drop by Bray & Bray if you need assistance with family, property, tax or any other point of law. Or just drop by to ask Martin about his dry cured bacon. Rest assured, you’ll be made thoroughly welcome.
