109 Church Street, Blackpool, FY1 1HU.

Dining with "The Dukes" Amaro, 109 Church Street, Blackpool FY1 1HU. Telephone: 01253 299644.

Open daily: 5pm to midnight. Completely new restaurants are getting fewer and farther apart – more often than not they’ve already been a café or bar, or have simply emerged from a “massive refurbishment” with little more than a new name and this year’s favoured colour scheme. Time flies when you are having, well, food actually, so it’s surprising to realise that mould breaking Amaro has been in situ for over 18 months. Maybe that’s because the new build of the three-floor former clothes store seemed to take longer to complete than the recent work

on Blackpool Tower. But it’s a wait which seems to have paid off. Its look is modern, crisp and fresh, an open plan kitchen area, a decent amount of space between the tables (having an upstairs overspill and party space certainly helps), a small reception area and a view of……. well, you can’t have everything can you. It’s perched on the edge of the St John’s Church partly pedestrianised precinct which in pretty much any other town would mean a lot more outdoor tables and chairs, a

lot fewer taxis – and some coordinated attempt to make this a designated and dedicated café/restaurant zone rather than an under-utilised town centre amenity. The good news is that once the shops are shut there’s still plenty of footfall from people on their way to and from the nearby theatres – and Amaro’s extended opening hours means it benefits from pre-show speedy eaters and post production punters digesting their evening entertainment along with their later lasagne.

It’s not the most obvious of names. Google will inform you that Amaro is Italian for “bitter” and the name of a herbal liquor commonly drunk as an after dinner digestif - potent and bracing but not for everyone. This Amaro however sets out to be friendly from the git go and aims to please as many people as possible (chips as a starter option will certainly win the kids – and some of the dads - over) with its mixture of modernity and reassuringly traditional touches such as crudités’ (ok it’s an idea imported from France but what

www.amaro-restaurant.co.uk

the heck) and bread sticks. The menu is more a greatest hits than a tips for the top collection but the vegetarian parmigiana sounded (and was) good for a slightly different starter (it’s on the set menu selection). A baked aubergine with tomato sauce and roast ham topped with parmesan, it is served bubbling hot and proved a great way to start the meal. Our other starter was a more predictable choice – spare ribs. Served with a rich and thick barbecue sauce they were delightfully meaty and tender enough to tackle on the plate rather than sticky up any fingers. There’s a decently sized (rather than over facing) selection of pizza, pasta and meat mains. The linguine al frutti di mare sounded interesting. Billed as “mixed sea fish and shell fish” with olive oil, garlic and parsley in a soon to prove ubiquitous tomato sauce it was way too heavy on the mussels at the expense of much else maritime but served its purpose. The tagliatelle meatballs on the

other hand were first rate. They tasted genuinely homemade – almost fragrant – and the ribbon pasta set them off perfectly in the by now familiar tomato and basil sauce. Very moreish. For once we had room for desserts. The lemon tart (“rich buttery crust with a creamy and zesty lemon filling”) was a disappointment – nowhere near “zesty” or lemony enough) but the cheesecake (“made with fresh mascarpone on a crunchy base” and served with a raspberry coulis) lived up to expectations. A decently chilled bottle of crispy Delle Venezie sauvignon and a little too much Lionel Richie background music completed our debut visit to this welcome and friendly addition to the town centre Italian offerings. Robin and Sue Duke.

STAR OF THE SHOW

IT’S A MAGICAL RIDE THIS XMAS A magical carpet ride awaits families this Christmas at Blackpool Grand Theatre. TV soap regular Mark Moraghan (Holby City, Coronation Street) will don the cloak as evil villain Abanazer in this year’s pantomime - Aladdin. Starring alongside him will be Blackpool lad and BAFTAwinning CITV presenter Barney Harwood as the eponymous cheeky lamp rubbing hero. They head a cast of familiar favourites including BBC Radio Lancashire and Grand panto legend Steve Royle as Wishee

Washee and Radio Wave’s Hayley Kay, who returns to the panto for 2016 in the role as Slave of the Ring. Steve’s appearance will make this his 14th Grand panto! Playing alongside them will be Philip Meeks as Widow Twankey and comedy magician Mark James as PC Pong. Marketing Manager Andrew Howard said, “We just love pantomime season at The Grand and with such a stellar line-up we’ll be hoping for another record-breaking year. We’re delighted Coronation

Street star Mark Moraghan is our baddie and local lad turned Blue Peter presenter and BAFTA winner Barney Harwood is back as our hero. “Putting on the panto takes a lot of hard work but it’s a really rewarding experience seeing the magic it brings to so many children at Christmas time.” Aladdin plays from Friday December 9 to Sunday January 8. Tickets are available from blackpoolgrand.co.uk or by calling the box office on 01253 290190.

PANTO TIME AT FLEETWOOD MARINE HALL Look out behind you it’s panto time at Fleetwood Marine Hall – but blink and you’ll miss it because the fifth consecutive Christmas pantomime in the port isn’t hanging around. Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs is in the town from Thursday December 8 to Sunday December 11 as part of a UK theatre tour. Former EastEnders star Joshua

Pascoe, famous for playing Ben Mitchell in the nation’s much loved soap, stars as Muddles alongside Blackpool cabaret star Victoria Roberts who plays the Wicked Queen, and singing star Kate Greenwood as Snow White. Joshua who was once nominated in the British Soap Awards for villain of the year is thrilled to be putting his evil ways

behind him to play Snow White’s comical best friend. “It’s great to be playing such a fun character,” he says. “I love panto and I’m really looking forward to some good old festive fun in Fleetwood this year.” Tickets can be booked online at www.marinehall.co.uk, in person at Marine Hall or by calling 01253 887693.

Eleven years after playing a tiny role in a Dukes Christmas production, Lucas Button has returned to the Lancaster theatre as star of the show. Now a graduate of London’s Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Lucas is playing Pinocchio at The Dukes until January 7. And just two weeks after it ends its run, 21 year old Lucas will be rehearsing with the English National Opera for their production of The Winter’s Tale at the London Coliseum where he will be directed by the Olivier award winning actor, Rory Kinnear. Back in 2005, Lucas was one of three boys taking it in turns to play Tiny Tim in A Christmas Carol, after his dad, Peter Button, a Dukes box office assistant and duty manager, suggested he audition. “I remember wanting to do every performance, even on Christmas Eve. It was the first time I found something I really enjoyed doing and I knew then that I wanted to be an actor,” Lucas said. Several years honing his skills as a member of The Dukes Youth Theatre followed, culminating in him playing Hamlet in 2013. For the past three years, Lucas has been a student at the London drama school which has Dame Judi Dench, Harold Pinter, Carrie Fisher, Christopher Eccleston and James Nesbitt among its success stories. While there, with friends he formed a new theatre company, Mad Like Roar, who performed their first show in London earlier this year and plan to take it to the Edinburgh Festival next summer. To book tickets for Pinocchio, ring The Dukes box office on 01524 598500 or visit www. dukes-lancaster.org

Following last year’s critically praised production of Cinderella at the Lowther Pavilion in Lytham, Polka Dot Pantomimes are back with Jack and the Beanstalk. The producers claim it will be the most spectacular pantomime ever staged at the Lowther with spellbinding scenery, dazzling costumes and impressive special effects – not to mention an enormous giant which, they say, has to be seen to be believed. This year’s pantomime, features local star Jack Wealthall as Jack Trott and West End performer

Rebecca Taylor-Grayson as Fairy Sunshine. Jack is a graduate of the Blackpool and the Fylde College’s School of Creative Arts and most recently appeared in the new musical production, Stop the Train, which after a successful tour appeared at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe festival. He is a huge fan of the Lowther Pavilion and being a Blackpool lad is thrilled to return for his third year at this venue. Rebecca Taylor-Grayson is also returning to the Lowther for her third year, this time playing the magical Fairy Sunshine - sprinkling magic fairy dust wherever she goes. Her previous credits include the West End musical Mamma Mia. Daniel Griesser plays the ever lovable Simple Simon – and don’t forget the boos for Jemma Harris as Poison Ivy. Jack and the Beanstalk runs from December 14 to 30. For more information contact https://www. lowtherpavilion.co.uk/viewshow. php?id=jack-and-the-beanstalk or call the box office on 01253 794221.

A GRAND CHRISTMAS Poulton-le-Fylde Band is set to delight audiences once again with another festive celebration in this year’s Grand Christmas Concert. This annual get-together at Blackpool Grand Theatre features a songbook of everyone’s favourite carols and best-loved Christmas songs – complete with musical sheets to sing along from. Playing under musical director Dave Collins and alongside host Father Geoff Bottoms, the talented band welcomes in the festive season in rousing style on Monday December 19. This year’s Grand Christmas Concert is the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time with friends or family. For many, the Christmas Concert is an unmissable date in the calendar, starting the holiday season with a magical evening of traditional festivities, mulled wine and mince pies – and all in the beautiful surrounds of the Grade II* listed Grand Theatre.

Andrew Howard, Grand Theatre Marketing Manager said: “Year on year people look forward to the Grand Christmas Concert. It is the perfect antidote to the manic presentbuying and planning in the run-up to the holiday season, giving audiences the chance to recapture the spirit of Christmas with exceptional music, great company and good cheer! And with our Christmas panto Aladdin running throughout December, the Grand really is the place where the whole family can enjoy a traditional Christmas.” Tickets are available from blackpoolgrand.co.uk or by calling the box office on 01253 290190.

THE WISDOM OF OZ Welcome to first of the new Citizen film review. The name’s Oz and I am a film fan, NOT a film critic. My obsession with everything cinematique was passed down to me by my Dad - James, with the emphasis on the appreciation of awe and wonder. I would like to dedicate this first months review to Mereside’s very own, Big Jim, who died earlier this year, 82yrs of age. So, in the words of the Flight of the Conchords ‘Its Business Time!!!’ Films you should have watched this year!“The Hateful Eight”, “The Revenant”, ‘Deadpool’ and ‘Creed’, the latter being the very last film I took my Dad to see. And it’s a couple of these titles I’d like to focus on for my cherry poppin’ slant for two reasons really, one they are both complete masterworks but more importantly they both feature one of the most dependable and versatile, character actresses of recent times, Amy Adams. ‘Nocturnal Animals’ features Adams as the estranged Artdealing wife of writer ex-husband Jake Gyllenhaal. The film is almost like a moving Edward Hopper painting with Tom Fords direction as a crashing car vehicle for his even more colourfully measured screenplay, one that has a surprise mechanism that makes a simple premise become a quiet genrebending head-wreck,without the need for superheroes of alternate realities. A tense harrowing and almost horrific at times, Nocturnal Animals is most definitely the

sum of its parts, an ensemble cast to die for that includes - the phenomenal Michael ‘Taterhead’ Shannon, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Jake Gyllenhaal, who is on fire in his prime and of course the main event in this film Amy Adams whom with her almost dream like performance could well of just walked on screen from an early 90’s David Lynch film, straight onto the sumptuously framed sets and locations created and realised in the mind of former fashion designer Tom Ford and his filmmaking friends. One of the many pieces of Televisual treats I viewed this year was the Blu-Ray, Ultimate Edition of Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice “BvS”. A special edition that felt like watching CGI dry for a Gandalf age, but among its saving graces which included Ben’s Bat & Bruce, Wonder Woman and her Wunderbar theme tune and of course kicking off her great year, was Amy Adams. Who’s brownie points will have gone up immensely due to BvS box office success which for Amy, is a sure fire way to gain future producer credits and a probable 5th Oscar Nomination for one of the best films I’ve seen in years. Denis Villeneuves ‘Arrival’ an Alien invasion film where the aliens invade and inhabit the minds of both the characters and the audience, rather than inhabit the airspace above every iconic landmark on Earth. Think David Fincher directing a remake of the The Abyss in a field rather than the Marianas trench, Arrival is another intimate film told on a

grand canvas with a stunning and tonally pitch perfect performance from Miss Adams. This film affects the audience during and long after. Director Villeneuve’s 5th Masterwork is full of brilliant ideas and musically scored by Johan Johannsson with such a deft touch, the sound design fuses to it effortlessly, like the the alien Heptapods ink to the glass viewing screen featured inside the gravity defying black ‘shell’. Decent support comes from Jezza Renner, Mickey Stuhlbarg and Forrest Whittaker, this is ultimately Amy’s’ Game. A subtle, reserved, nuanced performance that hits big when it needs to and bigger when it doesn’t. Director Villeneuve, is the real deal, ‘Incedenies’ being his masterpiece and Arrival is no different, a film so emotionally charged no less cinematic in a global way it cements the claim of Denis Villeneuve being the directorial lovechild of Stanley Kubrick and Steven Spielberg. Whether its Kuberg or Spielbrick it matters not, what matters is a certain sequel next year, Blade Runner 2049, but till then film fans. there is plenty of winter warmers to view down the local Picture house. So until next month, Stay Safe, Stay Frosty and Starlove to you all!! OZ.
