Beckham bags space in Bristol boutique From Vivienne to Victoria, Garment Quarter stocks some of the biggest names in fashion, writes Natalie Banyard

A

sanctuary for fashionistas who love their labels, innovative Bristol fashion boutique Garment Quarter brings together luxury designers and one-off pieces from the catwalk. The Penn Street store is the “go to” destination in the South West for Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, Victoria Beckham, Comme des Garcons, Versace and more. Garment Quarter is the brainchild of a group of young businessmen, with strong backgrounds in high-end fashion. With the inspiration for its name stemming from New York’s Garment District and the co-founders’ roots in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, Garment Quarter was born. Garment Quarter manger John Reid, 30, explains: “I worked in a Vivienne Westwood franchise in Manchester and myself and a group of friends who all worked in high-end fashion decided to set up a shop for ourselves. “We drew up a shortlist of cities and chose Bristol because Cabot Circus was becoming a popular shopping destination, there weren’t many independent clothes shops at the premium end, and we just thought it was a beautiful city. “We opened in 2010 and the reaction has been great. Of course it takes time for a new, unestablished brand to make it in a new city, but we’re making a name for ourselves now. “We’re very proud of the names we stock and we are one of only a handful of stores in the world that sells the Victoria Beckham brand and she still signs off every stockist herself.” The chic and contemporary boutique is teeming with rails for each of the designer names, featuring some fabulous pieces for both men and women. There’s everything

from everyday casual wear to red carpet dresses. Among the most eye-catching pieces are the statement Versace Versus Belt Print Dress; the playful Vivienne Westwood Tiger Tunic and the fun Comme Des Garcons Mens Eyes Heart T-shirt. There’s a vibrant display of men’s shoes and a gorgeous selection of handbags, including the stunning pink Victoria Beckham Seven Bag. The jewellery is also to die for, from classic Vivienne Westwood orb design rings and cufflinks to more unusual snail broaches and skeleton necklaces. Believing fashion is for all, Garment Quarter stocks sizes from a UK six to 18 for women and from XS to XXL for men, also introducing a size VII in Vivienne Westwood men’s shirting. The boutique also strives to appeal to all tastes by constantly evaluating the brand mix each season. “We have quite an eclectic clientele,” John tells me. “There’s a lot of old money in the South West and we get a lot of older customers in who bought Vivienne Westwood on the King’s Road in the Seventies. “We also have the more demure lady, who likes to buy the Victoria Beckham pieces, and the younger market, who buy Versace, which has made a massive comeback recently.” If shoppers need some expert advice, the in-store personal shopping team is available to help you find the perfect outfit for any event. Whether on your own or with friends and family, you can relax in a no-pressure environment, with refreshments included. “I think this is going to be a breakthrough year for us,” John concludes. “2014 is looking good already and Bristol shoppers are clearly embracing high-end fashion.” ■ Garment Quarter, 25 Penn St, Bristol, BS1 3AU.

Bums, tums, buggies and babies Losing weight and gaining fitness after having a baby is every new mum’s aim, but how to go about it safely and what about childcare? Kate Edser discovers a convenient solution

S BUGGYFIT ■ A former teacher and corporate fundraiser for the children’s cancer charity Clic Sargent, Vicki has always loved sports, particularly rowing and running, and always cycles to her classes, while holidays are usually spent skiing or surfing. “I can sit still,” she insists, “but I prefer to be active.” Mums must be at least six weeks post natal before joining Vicki’s Buggyfit classes, which rises to 10 weeks for those who’ve had a C-section. Vicki runs morning Buggyfit classes (£5 each) in St Andrew’s Park, just off Gloucester Road (Friday), at Horfield Common (Wednesday) and on The Downs (Tuesdays), plus “mums, bums and tums” classes (Monday) in the BS7 Gym at Gloucester County Cricket Ground. On June 8, Buggyfit supporters and their families are taking part in Tommy’s Baby Race on The Downs, which raises money for the Tommy’s charity, funding research into miscarriage, premature birth and stillbirth.

o, you’ve had a baby and now you want to get your body back. Diet alone won’t get good results, but new mums know it’s difficult to commit to an exercise class with a demanding little person to consider, even if childcare isn’t a hurdle. In any case, there’s quite a bit to bone up on in terms of what sort of exercise is safe to do in the weeks after giving birth. Buggyfit solves all these problem neatly. In Bristol, the franchise is run by experienced personal trainer Vicki Hill, whose knowledge of abdominal muscles and the pelvic floor is quite astounding. With specific training in ante- and post-natal exercise, Vicki has been running specialist classes here for nine years. As the name suggests, mums bring their babies to class in a buggy, but Vicki will have first made an assessment so she knows the physical capabilities of each woman – and her pelvic floor. “It’s all about the diaphragmatic breathing and the association between the diaphragm and the pelvic floor,” says Vicki. “It’s so important, but people just don’t know. “I talk about the pelvic floor all the time when I’m teaching. Not everyone has problems, but even if you’ve had a C-section you’ve had a lot of weight on the pelvic floor muscle for nine months. It can be a big issue for some. “The other issue is split abdominal muscles. For this, women want to do crunches, but that’s actually the worse thing to do. The more breathing and pelvic tilt work they do and the more they focus on that and trying to draw the tummy into the spine, the better – it’s all about

the deep abdominals. “I focus very much on trying to get women back in touch with their bodies. I just want people exercising in the right way. They need to also think about posture; the more upright they are, the slimmer they’ll feel. Pull up and engage the core rather than slouching with the tummy sticking out.” With her confident and upbeat manner, Vicki is keen to inspire mums to get fit and to make time for themselves. She says: “Women often forget about themselves. They’ve had nine months of hardship and suddenly they’ve got a baby. Mums often neglect themselves, so what’s also good about the Buggyfit class is that it’s entirely about them. “I don’t know the babies’ names, I only know the women, whereas at a lot of other baby classes they might be just so and so’s mum. This way they get back something for themselves.” During Buggyfit, Vicky teaches “a lot of leg and bum work, because women are squatting a lot in everyday life while lifting up their babies”. It’s important that women know how to lift properly, she adds, with bent knees in a squat position, and to engage the core and to exhale when straightening up. And there’s also a correct way to push a buggy, particularly when travelling uphill, which the women practise during the sessions. Typically, women will attend Buggyfit for a year or 18 months – at a point when the babies tend to get a bit fed up with sitting in their buggy for an hour! ■ Visit vickihill.co.uk, call 07747 614 836, or email pt@vickihill.co.uk

I don’t know the babies’ names, I only know the women, whereas at a lot of ❝ other baby classes they might be just so and so’s mum. “

Nail your beauty regime and step into summer

Jackie Harris, complementary therapy and nail services tutor at City of Bristol College, has this advice for pristine hands and feet

I

n the course of a day, hands and feet are put through a lot. If it’s not exposure to dirt, sunlight and frequent washing, they’re locked away in gloves, socks and shoes all through the long winter months. Now the warmer weather is here and our hands and feet will be more on show, it’s time to give them a makeover.

HANDS

■ We wash our hands several times each day, which depletes essential moisture in the skin. Ideally, a moisturiser or hand cream should be used after washing and drying to replace this moisture loss and help prevent skin conditions. Leave hand cream on while you sleep and you’ll see a big difference. ■ File nails regularly to help prevent splitting. It’s good practice to carry a nail file in your handbag so any nicks can be quickly smoothed away. ■ Massage special cuticle or almond oil into the cuticles, this will nourish both the surrounding skin and the nail, and is especially good for those who bite their nails! ■ Always use a base coat when applying varnish to help protect the nail from discolouration. This will also help colour “stick”. Finish with a top coat to give a lovely shine, ensure the longevity of the colour and prevent chipping.

FEET

■ After a day on your feet, it’s bliss to soak them in a bowl of warm water. Add peppermint (cooling and soothing) and tea tree (antiseptic). Alternatively, a few drops of your favourite bubble bath will work well, too. ■ Use a pumice stone or a foot rasp regularly on the soles of the feet to help prevent a build-up of dry skin. More serious problems should be referred to a chiropodist. ■ Toe nails should always be cut straight across and not too short, otherwise you risk ingrown toenails, which can lead to infections and are very painful. ■ Feet are often missed during a body moisturising regime, but they need attention! If they are feeling particularly dry, cream could be applied before bed and cotton socks worn to help maximise the moisturising effects. ■ As with the finger nails, always apply a base and top coat to the toe nails to get the best look. The two most important things we can do to maintain healthy skin and nails is to eat a healthy balanced diet and drink plenty of water.

BOOK IN Manicures and pedicures are also offered at a discounted price at the college. To make an appointment, call 0117 312 5544.

Take your loved ones on a nice day out and then shoot them castle towers, turrets and mazes, and fills with fog and pumping music once the game starts, can choose to play an all-against-all format, or a team version. And at the end, all scores are recorded so you can see who you shot and, for the purposes of holding grudges, who shot you. The high-tech gear will even tell you where you’ve been shot. It’s the kind of mass game that appeals to all ages, and people of all natures. Deputy manager Charlotte Bridge said: “We get students, adults, kids – all kinds of people. All of us who work here are big kids, too, and we like to play ourselves. “We offer one-hour and two-hour exclusives for groups, where you get the run of the whole place. Prices vary depending on what day of the week it is, and obviously weekends are peak times.” ■ Bristol Laser Fusion is open from 10am to 10pm seven days a week. The maximum number of people who can be in the arena at any one time is 30, so bear that in mind when making group bookings. Every Sunday, between 10am and noon, a special kids club is held. You have to be six years or above to take part in any session. For full details of ticket prices and group deals, see www.laserfusion.info, or call 0117 929 3699.

hey say we’re a warlike, violent nation, the British. Which seems a bit unfair given that, unlike some of our cousins across the Atlantic, we don’t settle work disputes, or family rows with automatic weapons. And luckily, while we don’t have mass gun ownership or bullets for sale in supermarkets, there are safe pursuits for those who like to exercise their trigger fingers now and then. Tucked away on Silver Street in Bristol city centre is Bristol Laser Fusion, a place where you can go with family, friends, or work colleagues and shoot at each other to your heart’s content without anyone getting hurt – although pride might take a battering. Places like Bristol Laser Fusion cater for the competitive spirit in all of us, and be it a stag do, hen party, birthday celebration or family gettogether, it’s a great way to expend some energy and get one over on your nearest and dearest. It’s essentially a combination of hide and seek and any shoot-em-up computer game you’ve ever played. Participants are given a pack that’s strapped to you and a gun. From then on, the game is very simple. You get points for shooting other people, and points deducted when they shoot you. Groups entering the arena, which features

OPEN GARDENS HIDDEN TREASURES ■ There are several gardens open to the public under the National Gardens Scheme over the next week or so.

WALKING FESTIVAL BRUNEL GROUP ■ The Bristol Walking Festival, promoting all types of two-footed routes in and around the city, takes place between now and May 26. One group that is active all year round is the Brunel Walking Group, set up to provide an alternative for people who can’t stand going to a gym and would rather enjoy fresh air and countryside views while they get their exercise. Members of the group take it in turns to organise walks on Saturdays and Sundays, and venture as far afield as South Wales. See the group’s website www.brunelwalking.org.uk for more information.

Lunch on a budget Cool café keeps it local

G

eorge Plum would probably be very proud of the fact that his splendid bone-handled cutlery is still being used by diners only a short walk from where he made it. Plum was a cutler and surgical instrument maker in pre-war Bristol, honing his skills in a workshop in Dolphin Street – a street that was demolished during the Blitz and now lies somewhere beneath Castle Park. A century after he made them, some of his knives and forks are now slicing through portions of eggs Benedict and plates of roast mackerel on rye at The Runcible Spoon, which recently reopened under new management after a period of closure. This small café/restaurant just off Stokes Croft was previously run by an entirely different team of passionate foodies and it gained a large and loyal following over the past two years, although it must have been tough to run it as a co-operative and still make enough money to carve out a reasonable living. The new owners are sisters Jessica and Katie Brokenshire, who also run the popular Sourdough Café in St Nicholas Market, and chef Greg McHugh, who previously cooked at The Rummer. Following on from the previous team, the new custodians of The Runcible Spoon are sticking to the local and seasonal ethos, but clearly trying to make it a more sustainable

business, with regular opening hours (it’s open every day apart from Monday). In the evening, the dinner menu (£25 for three courses or you can order individually priced dishes) includes such temptations as crab dumplings with crab and mushroom consommé, or duck with beetroot and celeriac purée. During the day, things are a touch simpler, with a menu that might include an £8 cooked breakfast; wilted greens, poached egg and hollandaise for £5.50, or corned beef, shallot and lovage dressing with rye toast for £5.95. The higgledy-piggledy two-floor restaurant has had a gentle makeover, including the addition of a new bar upstairs, where you can enjoy a number of bottled beers and ciders from South West producers such as Wiper & True and Burrow Hill. Downstairs is pretty much the same as before, although the cast iron range in the brick fireplace has been gussied up with a few well-chosen cookbooks and a vase of wild flowers. I ordered the smoked ling on sourdough toast with poached eggs (£5.50), which was a robust brunch dish, the firm flakes of smoked fish working perfectly with the runny egg yolks and buttery toast. I followed it with a small but perfectly formed Portuguese custard tart (£2) and a glass of delicious Stream Farm organic apple juice (£2.50).

THE RUNCIBLE SPOON 3 Nine Tree Hill, Stokes Croft, Bristol, BS1 3SB. Tel: 0117 329 7645.

VERDICT: Seasonally focused local food served in a cool, casual setting perfectly tailored to its Stokes Croft location, the new owners have breathed new life into The Runcible Spoon and it deserves to do well.

Lunch on a budget Pop-up deserves to be permanent

U

ntil last week, I hadn’t set foot in Room 8 for 20 years. Now a friendly pop-up café, this used to be the front desk of the old Bridewell Police Station and my only previous visit was to report a mugging and then attend an identity parade in the yard outside. It used to be a grey, austere place, somewhere between the sets of Life on Mars and The Sweeney, but these days, it’s home to local artists and creatives, the cells now cosy studios under the umbrella of The Island. The bullet-proof glass window of the old reception desk has gone, replaced by colourful bunting and a counter stacked high with artisan loaves, cakes and jars of granola. A room that has also been used as a gallery, it’s a modest space, with black and white tiles, wooden parquet flooring, mismatched furniture and crockery and an old Singer sewing machine. Run by artist Ursula Hutchinson and Johanna Boshier, who used to run the Cotham Sandwich Shop, Yum! Café is a temporary affair, running until May 21, although it is now hoped that this will be extended. Although a large part of its customer base has been resident artists, Yum! Café has also picked up trade from local office workers, who would normally pass the door on their way to getting their usual lunchtime sandwich.

20 EAT IT ● ● ● ● ●

With such low prices, Yum! Café is certainly giving Broadmead corporates a run for their money. The blackboard menus are concise and change daily. When I walked in, Jo was chalking up organic potato, leek and coconut milk soup of the day – a bargain at £2.20. There was also a cheese ploughman’s sandwich (local cheese, pickles, chutney and leaves on East Bristol Bakery sourdough) for £3.75, a seasonal salad of the day with bread for £5 and a mezze platter (hummus, dips, olives, bread and two salads) for the same price. Jo and Ursula certainly like to make work for themselves: they offer made-to-order “posh pot noodles” (£3.75 for a pot of Asian broth with crunchy veg, rice and noodles) and even make their own homemade version of Nutella to spread on toast – just one of the breakfast options available alongside homemade granola, juices and smoothies. I ordered a slice of homemade frittata (£2) – a deep wedge of spinach, sweet potato, red pepper and mozzarella with a noticeable thwack of chilli. This was followed by a peerless vegan Bakewell tart (£2.50) that was moist, not overly sweet and with crisp pastry boasting an impressive snap considering it didn’t contain butter or lard (the trick is to use oil, apparently).

WEEKEND 21


New opening Dude food served al fresco

A

fter 12 years, it’s all change at Spyglass, which has reopened for the summer season with a brand new name and identity. Still located half on the quayside and half on a boat moored at Welsh Back, just along from its sibling floating restaurant Glassboat, Three Brothers is a very different concept from Spyglass, which was more of an Antipodean BBQ affair. Three Brothers is essentially an alfresco burger restaurant that tips its trucker cap at the ‘dude food’ style of dirty American dining that was trendy a couple of years ago but is now starting to lose its novelty value. Personally, I’m a bit tired of seeing ramped up fast food served in blue-rimmed white enamel trays and I’ve had more pulled pork in the past year than you can shake a barbecued chicken drumstick at. Thankfully, pulled pork doesn’t make an appearance on the menu at Three Brothers, although chicken wings do – either hot and Asian-style or American buffalo wings with blue cheese dip. The menu is concise and clearly geared towards a kitchen where short-order cooks are required to bang out hundreds of meals on a busy day. That said, head chef Joey MacGibbon is clearly several notches above the usual burger-flipper, as his impressive CV includes time spent working in fashionable London res-

22 EAT IT ● ● ● ● ●

taurants Moro and Trullo – both places where you need to know your banana shallots more than your onion rings. The main section of the menu is devoted to burgers, from a basic meat patty at £6 to the signature Three Brothers Burger – a colon-busting combo of double patty, double bacon and double cheese for £9.50. It’s not all meat. There’s an Elvis Presley-style buttermilk burger (£8) and a well-priced (£6.75) vegetarian burger generously filled with fleshy marinated field mushrooms, melting mozzarella and crunchy pickled cucumber. My daughter gave the veggie burger a thumbs-up, although she clearly enjoyed the shared Smoked Dog (£5.75) more, and with good reason. Served in a soft white roll and topped with squiggles of American mustard and finely chopped white onion, the beefy hot dog (apparently made by an experienced German butcher who smokes the meat over beech wood) was plump, firm and juicy. We also shared the entry-level burger (£6) and it was hard to fault – coarse texture, precisely seasoned, cooked perfectly and nestling within a glazed bun as soft and fluffy as cotton wool. The accompanying fries (£2.50) were crisp, greaseless and generously salted. We washed it all down with Coke floats and half-pints of Wiper and True Red Orange ale – one of several well-chosen craft ales and artisan ciders on offer.

THREE BROTHERS Welsh Back, Bristol, BS1 4SB. Tel 0117 927 7050

THE VERDICT: With no children’s menu and a limited choice for veggies and piscivores, it may not have the wide appeal of Spyglass, but if it’s messy, meaty dude food and cold beers you’re after, you’ll love the Three Brothers.

or years the nocturnal Hush Hush bar, 233 Cheltenham Road reopened last month under new management as The Bootlegger, an all-day café and bar with much broader appeal than its predecessor. There is an emphasis on live music, with a small stage at the back of the deep, narrow room, next to an upright piano for relaxed Sunday afternoon sessions. There is free live jazz, blues and swing most nights. Open from 9am, The Bootlegger is somewhere you can pop in during the day for a decent coffee and, at weekends, order from the extensive brunch menu. With its reclaimed wood panelling, shiny

copper-top bar, filament bulbs and low leather sofas, The Bootlegger has the on-trend look of most new American-styled bars. There is an overwhelming range of cocktails, from classics through to New York cocktails such as an NYC-style French Martini and Manhattan. This is a bar that also takes its beers and premium lagers seriously, with Miller Genuine and Cornish Korev lager on tap alongside draught Bristol Beer Factory Southville Hop, the own-label Bootlegger Pale Ale and rotating guest ales. ■ 233 Cheltenham Road, Bristol, BS6 5QP.

Full of Persian flavour and Eastern promise

I

ranian cook Sabrina Ghayour first made a name for herself when she hosted supper clubs in London, cooking the Persian and Middle Eastern food she learnt from her mother and grandmother. Her debut cookbook distills all these recipes into a collection of fragrant dishes that can be easily recreated from ingredients found in most supermarkets. Ghayour’s food comes to life on the page with the vibrant photography from Liz and Max Haarala Hamilton, each dish captured in a riot of colours thanks to an abundant use of pomegranate seeds, spices and herbs. Lamb and pistachio patties; chicken, preserved lemon and olive tagine; and spiced carrot, pistachio and almond cake with rosewater cream are just three delicious recipes in a book crammed with Persian delights. “Middle Eastern cookery is often shrouded in mystery,” says Ghayour. “It’s the stuff of Arabian nights and full of Eastern promise, perceived as exotic and unknown. “But this is not a true reflection of the simple and honest cuisine that it is. I can understand that the way we eat in the Middle East can be overwhelming for some cultures. We do like to fill the table with a myriad of dishes, both hot and cold, with an abundance of colour, variety and both meat and vegetables. “Growing up in an Iranian family, Persian food will always be my first love, but I was raised in England and, having lived here for over 30 years, I consider myself to be British. “My style of cooking is very much based on ingredients that can easily be found in supermarkets, along with a few ingredients that may require a bit more of a search (unless you have a Middle Eastern grocer nearby) or easily ordered online.”

SPICED LAMB AND APRICOT STEW SERVES 6 ■ Vegetable oil ■ 2 large onions, roughly diced ■ 600-800g (1lb 5oz–1lb 12oz) lamb neck fillets (or use diced, boneless leg or 6 lamb shanks), cut into 2.5cm (1in) thick chunks ■ 2 heaped tsp ground cumin ■ 1 heaped tsp ground cinnamon ■ 1 heaped tsp turmeric ■ Sea salt ■ 2 generous tbsp clear honey ■ 250g (9oz) dried apricots

■ Preheat a large saucepan over a medium heat if using gas, or a medium-high heat if cooking on electric. Drizzle in enough oil to cover the base of the pan, then add the onions and sauté them until they begin to brown slightly around the edges. Add the lamb to the pan and stir the meat into the onions, ensuring you keep the meat moving, so that it becomes nicely browned but does not stew. Add the spices to the pan, season with sea salt and stir to coat the meat well, then add the honey and stir again. Pour in just enough boiling water to cover the ingredients, reduce the temperature to low and simmer for one and a quarter hours, stirring every so often to prevent sticking. After the cooking time has elapsed, add the apricots, stir well and cook for at least a further 45 minutes. Serve with either basmati rice or Persian flatbread.

aturday night and my wife and myself are in deepest Cornwall on a weekend break. Ninety-nine times out of 100 we’d be heading for the nearest highly recommended pub or restaurant for our evening meal. Then the doorbell of Moonrakers, our holiday home away from home, rings and there on the doorstep was Anne carrying a large wicker basket full to bursting with foodstuffs. No need for us to go out to eat, you see. Anne Emmett was coming to do the cooking for us. So, while we idled away the early evening watching the telly with a glass of vino, Anne was busy in the kitchen. Before too long the first course was brought to the dining table, all neatly prepared by Anne, right down to proper

napkins and silver napkin rings. Soon, we were tucking into a dill and smoked salmon terrine. It was delicious. But there was more. Porcini stuffed chicken breast wrapped in bacon (sourced from Anne’s family farm) followed. While the third course was a delicious lemony apple Canterbury tart. And the icing on the cake for this exceptional evening was the fact that we had no clearing up, or washing-up to do. Anne and her culinary expertise is one of the many delightful holiday flourishes which St Mawes Retreats, owners of Moonrakers, can offer those who stay at their properties. St Mawes is one of those perfectly proportioned Cornish coastal gems. There’s a beach, a working harbour, coastal paths, plenty of places to eat and drink, bags of character and even a fortress, the latter courtesy of Henry VIII and still in rather good nick. Moonrakers, meanwhile, was everything a grand holiday house should be. It sleeps 12, and light floods in thanks to magnificent panoramic views to the coast. There’s a games den with pool table, a Wii, flat-screen TV and so forth, while in the garden there’s a large trampoline, goal posts for footie and full-size table tennis. St Mawes is about a five-minute stroll down the hill to the harbour. Though if you headed left instead of right out of the property you would come first to the highly rated Lamorran Gardens in Upper Castle Road. Heading further afield, aside from our visit to Falmouth, we took a tour around the fortress. It’s maintained by English Heritage and offers some spectacular vistas from its fortified ground and battlements. There are a number of ferry services, some quite novel ones, plying their trade in these waters, too, so it’s worth checking them, especially those which head up-river for specialist cruises to places such as Trelissick Gardens, a National Trust property. This is the charming Roseland Peninsula, and St Mawes falls within the parish of St Just in Roseland. The weather obliged with some spring sunshine so we picked up the coastal path not far from Moonrakers. The route was a delight, offering the chance to stop every so often at some “secret” sandy coves. But the best but was yet to come. As we headed into St Just, our walk out of the village took us past the parish church there. I doubt there is another place of worship in the country which can match the glorious location of this one, sitting, as it does, at the head of a tranquil picturesque creek. Now, after chef Anne’s Saturday night culinary treat, the Sunday of our stay brought with it the usual dilemma about where to go for a traditional Sunday lunch. Ingrid, who helps look after the St Mawes Retreats properties, suggested our nearest “local”, The Victory Inn. It was a very good call. And at £6.96 was also ludicrously good value. All too soon Monday morning rolled around and our short break drew to a close. It was hard to tear ourselves away because we’d both become deeply smitten with Moonrakers… and then there was also the not insubstantial matter of deciding what we were going to buy and cook for dinner back home that night.

ith three number one albums, six top ten singles, sold-out arena shows and over 2.5 million UK album sales alone, Yorkshire five-piece Embrace were on the crest of a wave when they suddenly vanished without a trace. But now they are back with a new tour – their first in seven years – and a fantastic new album, Embrace, that conveys a darker sound while still keeping their signature anthems and huge choruses. Embrace are brothers singer Danny Mc-

Namara and guitarist Richard McNamara, bassist Steve Firth, keyboardist Mickey Dale and drummer Mike Heaton and the band recorded the new record in their own studio in Halifax over the last three years. At the end of last year, Embrace performed two secret shows for fans in their home towns of Bradford and Halifax. The shows were a showcase for various off-the-wall shock art tactics, with one gig in darkness and the other in a boxing ring, the audience dressed in white boiler suits and covered in neon paint.

from Friday, May 9, 2014

Though the shows were strictly secret, fan forums went into meltdown with both shows selling out in minutes. “They were fantastic,” says frontman Danny McNamara. “The secret gigs are always a joy – you are playing to your most loyal fans, and Embrace fans tend to be lovely people. “We had fans fly in from Australia, Japan, USA and Germany to see us on a cold rainy December night in Halifax – that’s what I call commitment!” Embrace emerged from the post-Britpop

scene in the mid-1990s and went on to enjoy a decade of success with top ten singles such as All You Good Good People, Come Back to What You Know, My Weakness is None of Your Business and Nature’s Law. In 2006, the band’s fifth album, This New Day, went straight to number one and featured the song World At Your Feet, which became the official song of the England World Cup squad in that year’s campaign and went to number three in the charts. Although it was the band’s most successful period, it started to take its toll, according to McNamara. “We had just completed our biggest ever tour, playing arenas for the first time, touring the USA, promoting This New Day and doing the official England World Cup song. “We got back from tour tired and decided to take six months off to recover and get ready for the next album. However, after six months everyone was involved in other projects and it took two years to get us all together in the same room with free time ahead. “Everyone went off and did different things but we had a band meeting and decided that if we were going to make another album, it had to be our best. Unfortunately, it took us a long

time before we were happy we had done that.” The new album took three years to record and, although the songs have Embrace’s trademark big anthems and sweeping choruses, it’s rawer and darker than previously. So, how does McNamara think the band’s sound has changed since their early releases? “I think we reconnected with our early influences – Ride, PJ Harvey, Cure, Joy Division – and have made an album for ourselves without record companies or producers pushing us to compromise and be more commercial. “We never set out to write big ballads, it’s something that happened that was slightly out of our control. “The band became very successful very quickly and when that happens you are suddenly dealing with so many opinions it becomes difficult to be true to what your original vision for the band was. “In hindsight, we weren’t prepared for our initial success at all, but we enjoyed the ride. If you read the press you’ve got to have really thick skin, or one bad review will override ten good ones in your mind. The banter in the band is what keeps us sane and together.”

THE AMAZING SNAKEHEADS START THE BUS

D asters that climate change is already bringing to the world. The single is from Fish’s new album, A Feast of Consequences, which is being hailed as one of the best in a career spanning four decades. The album was produced by Calum Malcolm, who previously worked with The Blue Nile and Prefab Sprout. More used to performing larger concert halls, this appearance at the Fleece is a rare chance to catch this towering figure (he’s 6ft 5in) at close quarters.

escribed by NME as “one of the most untethered, aggressive and downright exciting new live bands in the country”, incendiary Glasgow trio The Amazing Snakeheads make their Bristol debut at Start the Bus. The show, which is free, comes hot on the heels of a number of high-profile gigs around the UK, many of which have sold out. Last month, The Amazing Snakeheads released their new single, Here It Comes Again, which is taken from their eagerly awaited debut album, Amphetamine Ballads. With the energy of early Arctic Monkeys and the dirty blues-punk sound of Gallon Drunk and the Gun Club, The Amazing Snakeheads are full of rage, romance and dark humour, all topped with frontman Dale Barclay’s howls and songs sung in a thick Glaswegian accent. It’s an arresting and unique sound that had one music critic claiming he was so excited after seeing the band that he couldn’t sleep. Unmissable.

FISH FLEECE

P

etrol pump attendant, forestry worker, unemployment benefit office counter clerk and water sprinklers quality inspector – Edinburgh-born Derek Dick has had a varied career, but he will always be best known as Fish, the frontman of Eighties prog rockers Marillion and hit singles like Kayleigh, Lavender and Incommunicado. Solo since 1988, Fish has just released his new single, Blind to the Beautiful, which is accompanied by a striking video featuring breathtaking imagery from Greenpeace that shines a light upon the huge ecological dis-

EWAN MCLENNAN FOLK AROUND FISHPONDS AT THE CROSS HANDS

E

wan McLennan appeared on the UK folk scene with the release of his debut album, Rags & Robes, which gained much critical praise and featured in MOJO’s top ten folk albums of 2010. After an appearance on BBC Radio 2’s Folk Show, his debut was capped by winning the BBC Folk Award’s Horizon Award in 2011. McLennan’s music was immediately noted for its depth of feeling and sincerity, something that comes from his respect and passion for the music he plays. Whether singing haunting traditional Scottish ballads, or weaving the power-

ful stories that make up his own songs, his unique and earthy voice is always compelling. Having performed with, and been taught by, a number of world-renowned guitarists, from Martin Simpson to Robin Hill and Gerry Douglas, his own guitar playing is outstanding and forms an essential part of his music. The much-awaited second album, The Last Bird to Sing, has received glowing reviews and confirmed his prominence among the new generation of folk musicians. ■ Tues, May 13. See listings for details.

COMING SOON EELS

T

o the wider world, it might seem that Californian band Eels rose to the surface with their debut album Beautiful Freak (Novocaine for the Soul, Susan’s House and Your Lucky Day in Hell) in 1996 and then sank again. The truth is they’ve produced 11 albums, and it’s been a whirlwind of musical styles from this eccentric, but talented bunch. Expect dark, personal lyrics against a background of a live orchestra. ■ Friday, July 25, Colston Hall

TUMBLING BONES THE OLD DUKE

Y

ou might not believe that four men and a double bass will fit into a two-door Fiat hatchback. Pack in an additional banjo, fiddle, and two guitars, and you have an accurate vision of a slightly cramped Tumbling Bones, fresh from the US, hightailing it from gig to gig. Hailing from Portland, Maine, these boys are travelling around on their debut UK tour with only the necessities – instruments, tap shoes, a change of clothes, and a crate filled with copies of their debut album, Loving a Fool.

This indie Americana record spans rockabilly to gospel and reflects the Tumbling Bones’ performance – a roots-tinged spectacular that includes a cappella three-part harmony, Appalachian clog dancing and fiddle wizardry. Drawing on bluegrass and pre-WWII folk, Tumbling Bones play a mix of original compositions and traditional material infused with the infectious energy of the rock’n’roll they were reared on. ■ Thurs, May 15.

Clubbing HEIDI PRESENTS THE JACKATHON MOTION , AVON STREET

H

eidi, whose Jackathon tour arrives in Bristol tonight, is a perfect example of the international nature of today’s house and techno scene. Like techno hero Richie Hawtin, she grew up in the city of Windsor, on the Canadian side of the Detroit River. By 2005, after moving to London, Heidi had hooked up with Berlin duo M.A.N.D.Y and was playing clubs all over Europe. Soon she was making regular appearances on BBC Radio 1 and heading up her own parties.

Heidi’s DJ style is rooted in the early days of house, with smoother, deeper cuts sitting naturally alongside minimal funk and occasional outbreaks of acid. Jackathon nights are all about the unity of house and techno, and the line-up tonight bears that out. The special guest is Jackmaster, co-owner of Glasgow’s Numbers, and one of the most gloriously unpredictable DJs on the circuit. ■ Friday, May 9, 10pm-late. www.motionbristol. com

Classical BSO/KARABITS: BRAHMS SYMPHONY CYCLE COLSTON HALL

A

s the Colston Hall’s season-long Symphony Project draws to a close there’s a must-hear interloper hovering that crowns the series in all but name. Yet since the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra doesn’t hail from Austria (or Germany, if you want to be inclusively pedantic!), Kirill Karabits’ concentrated journey through the complete symphonies of Brahms doesn’t quite fit the Project’s criteria for matching symphonies with an orchestra from their country of origin. No problem there for the last concert, which

points the Moscow Philharmonic at Shostakovich’s 9th Symphony and the mighty No. 10 on Wednesday, May 14. But, stand-alone or not, the Brahms looks set to be a real season highlight.

Too much lunacy in a crazed circus

I

n the mid-1980s, musician Chris Sievey gave birth to Frank Sidebottom, a sharp-suited comic persona with a large papier-mache head, who was forever 35 years old and carried a hand-puppet sidekick named Little Frank. This cartoonish alter-ego became ensconced in the Madchester music scene, made regular appearances on television and famously gave birth to Caroline Aherne’s mock talk show host Mrs Merton on one of his radio shows. Having faded into relative obscurity in the 1990s, Sidebottom made a series of comebacks and remained a cult favourite on the music and comedy scenes until Sievey’s death in June 2010. Journalist Jon Ronson’s script, inspired by his memories of Frank/Sievey and co-written by Peter Straughan, taps into the appeal of other outsider musicians like Daniel Johnston and Captain Beefheart as it dramatises the efforts of a group of misfits to record an album. Oscar nominee Michael Fassbender, who was terrifying in 12 Years A Slave, spends almost the entire film encased within a giant fibreglass noggin, concealing his emotions from us as well as the other cast. The unlikely narrator though is Jon (Domhnall Gleeson), a musically challenged, socially awkward young man, who composes lyrics in his bedroom. During a walk along the beachfront, he

encounters a band called the Soronprfbs, whose keyboardist has just suffered a mental breakdown. “Can you play, C, F and G?” asks the band’s manager Don (Scoot McNairy) and Jon is hastily enlisted to play a gig that night, where he must gel seamlessly with theremin player Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal), French bassist Baraque (Francois Civil), percussionist Nana (Carla Azar) and quixotic lead singer Frank (Fassbender). The concert is a disaster, but Jon keeps his place and joins the band on a rural Irish retreat to record an LP. In this idyll, Jon discovers that Frank plays with madness every day and demands unachievable perfection from the band. There are undeniable moments of fiery brilliance in Lenny Abrahamson’s film, including a sexually charged encounter between Jon and Clara in a hot tub. But these cannot compensate for the lunacy that Frank wears like a badge of honour. Every member of the band is dysfunctional to the point that we struggle to relate to them. “I used to have sex with mannequins, it’s a condition,” casually confesses Don, one of the more down-to-earth members of the crazed circus. Gyllenhaal sinks her pearly whites into her role with gusto, but Gleeson’s delusions of musical grandeur wear thin well before the Soronprfbs embark on an ill-fated trip to Texas to perform at the South by Southwest music festival.

FRANK (15, 95 mins) Starring Domhnall Gleeson, Michael Fassbender and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

VERDICT: Jon Ronson’s memories of the man and the myth provide an unlikely spark of inspiration for Frank, a musical comedy that is, to be frank, too self-consciously bonkers for its own good.

Score ★★★✩✩

■ New York’s Metropolitan Opera blazed a trail when it first started beaming its productions live into cinemas back in 2006. Many thought it’d prove a short-lived flash in the pan. How wrong could they be? Now everyone from the Royal Shakespeare Company to Glyndebourne is at it – and the Met is smiling all the way to the bank! Rossini’s sparkling take on Cinderella is next up, but don’t expect pumpkins, glass coaches or slippers. There’s a happy ending, though. And it couldn’t be happier given that Cesare Lievi’s production boasts the incomparable Joyce DiDonato singing her first Met title role opposite consummate maestro of the high Cs, Juan Diego Florez, as the prince charming himself, Prince Ramiro. Conducted by Fabio Luisi, Cenerentolas don’t get much starrier. ■ Sat, May 10, Vue Bristol, Longwell Green (and other cinemas), 5.55pm, £12/50-£16.70. 0871 224 0240 / www.myvue.com

Arnie’s back but we wish he wasn’t

C SABOTAGE (15, 109 mins) Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington and Olivia Williams.

VERDICT: Like the muscle-bound characters, Ayer’s picture foregoes subtlety and diplomacy, preferring a full-on assault of wanton violence.

Score ★★★✩✩ 44 S E E I T ● ● ● ● ●

orrupt police officers learn they are not above the law in the latest action thriller from David Ayer, who has walked the beat before in Training Day and End Of Watch. In Sabotage, the Illinois-born writer-director melds the testosterone-fuelled camaraderie and grittiness of his earlier films, cutting between explosive gun fights and unsettling scenes of videotaped torture. When a member of internal affairs warns one dirty cop, “If that cartel finds out you stole 10 million dollars, they’re gonna slit your throat from ear to ear,” he isn’t joking. Dismemberment, disembowelment and evisceration abound and Ayer delights in the aftermath of ritualistic slaughter. Implausibilities stack up faster than expletives in a script co-written by Skip Woods, including a hilarious moment of forced sexual tension between Arnold Schwarzenegger and a female co-star. “Credibility is like virginity. Once it’s gone, it’s gone forever,” a senior police officer philosophises later in the picture. Sabotage loses its credibility in the opening 10 minutes. Schwarzenegger plays John Breacher, the cigar-chewing ringleader of a team of undercover DEA agents, who infiltrate criminal organisations and destroy them from the inside. Their latest target is a drug cartel safe house, where team member Lizzy (Mireille Enos) has gathered vital intelligence about a stockpile of cash.

from Friday, May 9, 2014

Breacher and his bad lads – Monster (Sam Worthington), Sugar (Terrence Howard), Neck (Josh Holloway), Pyro (Max Martini), Tripod (Kevin Vance), Grinder (Joe Manganiello) and Smoke (Mark Schlegel) – use the raid as a smokescreen to steal 10 million dollars from the cartel. Unfortunately, the stolen loot vanishes, leaving the DEA agents out of pocket and facing tough questions from department chief Floyd Morgan (Martin Donovan) and internal affairs. In the absence of physical proof, the team returns to active duty. One by one, an unseen adversary picks off the DEA agents and Breacher reluctantly accepts help from ballsy detective Caroline Brentwood (Olivia Williams) to identify the culprit. Sabotage portrays Breacher and his buddies as loud-mouthed, obnoxious hooligans, who can ignore their moral compasses so long as they get results. Schwarzenegger looks his age in close-up but still takes the lead in big set pieces while Williams struggles to impose herself in a woefully underwritten role. Action sequences that bookend the film are polar opposites in terms of plausibility. While the nervy DEA assault on the safe house sets pulses racing, the climactic showdown is a preposterous game of automotive duel on the streets of Atlanta that wouldn’t look out of place in the forthcoming Terminator reboot. All that’s missing is a knowing smirk to camera from Schwarzenegger. In this instance, we hope Breacher won’t be back.

rom intimate encounters in front rooms to epic adventures in public places, Mayfest 2014 offers a broad range of unusual, playful and ambitious work from leading theatre makers from Bristol and beyond. For 11 days from May 15, this unique festival of contemporary theatre will take the city by storm with a vibrant concoction of cabaret, live art, dance, circus, music, installation and all manner of other delights. Mayfest kicks off with the best party in town at Bristol Old Vic. There will be music, drinking, dancing and plenty of camp capers from award-winning performance artists and sequin wearer Scottee. Headlining this year’s programme is the much-anticipated UK premiere of The Roof from the creators of 2010’s impressive sell-out

hit Electric Hotel. A high-octane mix of freerunning and contemporary dance, this is a 360-degree performance that will capture imaginations under the night sky in Millennium Square. Mayfest creator and co-artistic director Matthew Austin told Weekend: “We’re very excited about The Roof, which premieres at Mayfest before a three-week run at the National Theatre as part of LIFT (London International Festival of Theatre). “We’re building an urban landscape right in the middle of Bristol on Millennium Square. The audience, wearing headphones, will be in the centre of a huge pop-up arena where the drama will unfold around them. “It’s a big coup for Bristol, one of the biggest outdoor theatre shows to ever happen in the city, and we’re getting it first.”

from Friday, May 9, 2014

More unmissable shows are Dance of The Magnetic Ballerina, a striking and beautiful dance solo from Czech artist Andrea Miltnerova, and Smashed, which invites audiences to a tea part with nine jugglers, 80 apples and four crockery sets! Other highlights are an all-male version of Wuthering Heights, Opera North and The Tiger Lillies presenting the sublime cabaret Lulu, and #TORYCORE, a punk gig where all the lyrics are taken from chancellor George Osborne’s Budget speech! The performances will take place at various Bristol arts venues as well as some more unusual ones, including the autobiographical performance Mental in a member of the public’s sitting room and Nightwalk, which invites audiences to walk through Leigh Woods in the dark.

Young Mayfesters can also enjoy a disco at Bristol Museum and experience a children’s version of the festival’s late night cabaret bar, The Blind Tiger. Matthew says: “If you’ve never experienced Mayfest before, you can try us out for as little as a fiver. It’s a great way to try something that’s a little out of the ordinary, and we’re promise to show you a good time.” ■ Mayfest, Thursday, May 15 to Sunday, May 25, various venues.

DANCE FOR DEMENTIA THE REDGRAVE THEATRE 20TH CENTURY BOY THE BRISTOL HIPPODROME

M

E.ARE.YOUNG is a fast-paced multi-media comedy depicting the lives of three young girls struggling in a world where jobs are scarce, everyone has a degree and Facebook determines your happiness. The high-energy show is written and performed by DollyPop, a local, all-female company that strives to present modern problems from a feminine perspective. DollyPop co-founder and recent Bath Spa graduate Jade Berks explains: “We wanted to almost take the pressure off our generation. “A lot of this pressure we found is generated by social media; Facebook seems to be a selfindulgent competitive platform to boast about your life, and this isn’t helpful to anyone.”

ore than 100 dancers from across Bristol will join together to create a fantastic fusion of different dance styles for a worthy cause. From African to Irish and ballet to Bollywood, Dance for Dementia will be an entertaining night of dance, raising much-needed funds for Alzheimer’s Society. The showcase, which takes place at The Redgrave Theatre on Sunday, has been organised by Katie Smith from Downend. A keen dancer herself, Katie was inspired to raise money for Alzheimer’s Society after her grandmother passed away from the disease. Katie says: “My grandma loved to dance, and after organising Dance for Dementia 2013 which raised £1,950 for Alzheimer’s Society, I am excited to bring these talented Bristol dancers together again to support a great cause.” The event will include dancing from some of Bristol’s finest acrogymnastic, African, ballet, belly, Bollywood, cheer, contemporary, Irish, Latin, modern, Scottish, street and tap dancers in a unique and exciting show. The Lord Mayor of Bristol will be attending the evening performance. Rachael Sweet, from Alzheimer’s Society, says: “Dementia is caused by diseases of the brain and affects over 4,400 people in Bristol alone. Events like this help us to support people to live well today and fight for a world without dementia tomorrow.”

ig out the platform shoes, fling on the feather boa and apply the glitter – a smash hit new musical inspired by the life of rock legend Marc Bolan is set to explode on to the stage nearly four decades after the iconic star’s tragic death. West End and musical theatre star Warren Sollars and well-known TV faces Sue Jenkins (Brookside/Coronation Street) and Luke Bailey (Waterloo Road) will lead the cast of 20th Century Boy at The Bristol Hippodrome next week. Featuring some of the greatest pop songs ever written, 20th Century Boy tells the story of Marc Bolan and his band T Rex, exposing some of the myths and taking the audience on a tearful, yet

joyful journey through Marc’s fascinating life. Rocker, poet, electric warrior, king of glam and godfather of punk, Bolan was arguably the biggest rock star the UK had ever seen. Before his tragic death in 1977, just days short of his 30th birthday, Bolan lived life at breakneck speed, creating a series of iconic images, a string of number one hits and an army of obsessive fans. Featuring the smash hits Get It On, Ride A White Swan, Metal Guru, I Love To Boogie, Hot Love and many more, 20th Century Boy is a glorious story and celebration of glam rock at its colourful best. ■ Monday, May 12 to Saturday, May 17.

A window into unique and vibrant world PICK OF THE WEEK The Boy Behind the Counter at the Rearview of Gloucester, at The Gallimaufry café/bar

P

erspective is key in art – something of which Bristol photographer James Koch is only too aware. In the exhibition of his photographs now showing at The Gallimaufry café-bar on Gloucester Road (where James also works), you’ll find a “back-to-front ode” to this most unique and vibrant of shopping streets. Gloucester Road’s vigorous street life, its unique character and strong independent ethos has been much documented. James’ celebration of the street where he passes his days, though, has a very distinctive perspective. All of the photographs have been taken, over six years, in the reflections of shops along the street, mostly at dawn or dusk – creating a warm, colourful and distinctly surreal portrait of this streetscape, with its scenes, colours, characters, shops and inimitable personality. In these unusual and arresting images, two worlds collide – the interior of the shop and, reflected in the window, the life of the street outside. Or, as James puts it, the images depict “a regular selection of familiar Bristol people and places. Just not quite as you’ve seen them before.” James, who arrived in Bristol for his studies “some time in the Noughties”, has spent many mornings over the past few years walking around his adopted hometown with a Sony Cybershot camera. “These walks have introduced me to a new way of seeing and thinking,” he reflects now. Local shopping streets quickly became a focal point for his photographic projects. “Picton Street, St Mark’s Road, Cotham Hill, Gloucester Road… these streets just seem to attract more interesting folk.” So how did his unusual choice of viewpoint come into being? “I’m not really sure where my liking for shop-window reflections originated. But the challenge of effectively combining these two images, the street scene and the interior of the shop, is definitely something I enjoy. Maybe it’s just cowardice that keeps me on the outside looking in, actively avoiding confrontation. Having said that, after one shoot in St George I was visited by two anti-terror squad officers who wanted to know why I was photographing a personal mobility centre. To which, to be fair, I had no answer…” Whatever his original motivation, James has stuck with his unique technique. “I’ve come to realise that this way of seeing is more true to life anyway. When we look at the world around us, it’s never really a clear picture that we get. Emotions, desires and memories combine to alter what we see, muddying the view.” For example, see his Blue Monday, pictured.

James explains the picture’s genesis. “Katze, a shop opposite The Gallimaufry, often hangs a T-shirt with an animal print in its window. At sunset the light was hitting the wolf and catching the whites, while the black material disappeared from view. I played around with different compositions, but instinct told me that this was the frame and that it would come in time. I like the final image and what it suggests. We’re all animals, after all!” And is Gloucester Road just another example of the characterful high streets that flourish across Bristol – or does it enjoy an atmosphere all of its own? “On one level, the

street’s sheer length makes it into a gigantic playground for me. The sun follows me up one side and down the other. But, yes, I think there’s also something unique about it – the sheer breadth of function, from florists to fish shops and from record stores to restaurants of every conceivable nationality, makes it interesting. And all of this thriving commerce is run by, and supported by, the residents of Redland, Bishopston and Horfield. “There’s a unique energy to this street, which I try to capture in these images.” ■ To Friday, May 30.

OBSESSIONS THE ISLAND

SALLY STAFFORD INNOCENT FINE ART ■ Clifton Village’s Innocent Fine Art welcomes more elegant, delicate landscape paintings by this muchrespected West Country artist. Inspired both by a year of intense travelling and by her Gloucestershire home, the show includes images of the golden grasses of central Portugal, almond blossom in southern Spain (Mirage, pictured), the meadows of Skye, the Forest of Dean and, especially, the River Severn which passes in front of Sally’s home. The textures and luminous colours in Sally’s work

are created by fast, intense layering of paint, ink, wax, pigment and metal leaf. In contrast, the finished paintings have a contemplative stillness and peace. In Sally’s words: “Connecting with the natural world through quiet observation and reflection, then recreating that moment on canvas is a challenge that engages me emotionally and physically.” ■ To Saturday, May 31, Innocent Fine Art, Bristol. See listings for details.

■ This photography exhibition by 15 second-year students at the University of the West of England explores the theme of human obsessions in all their infinite variety. Particular obsessions explored include the personal connection between gamer and game in Grand TheftAuto(inphotographsbyGeorge Bale); escapism as portrayed through landscapes (Laura Williams); and how childhood memories warp over time (Chloe Upton). Elsewhere, Amy Rance’s portraits and still lifes document our emotional relationships with colour, and how these are represented in our clothing choices; Rhiannon Buckle’s portraits (pictured) trace our obsessionwithskinandbeauty;andJade Spurling’s zine is inspired by friendship and a fear of loss. “If you want to learn what someone fears losing, just watch what they photograph,” Jade explains. “The zine focuses on photographing the thing that scares me most: losing my friends.” ■ To Monday, May 12, The Island, Bridewell St, Bristol. See listings for details.

GROUNDED GRANT BRADLEY GALLERY ■ Bristol artist and poet David Johnson exhibits this series of colourful oil and acrylic paintings, documenting his travels around England’s landscapes and seascapes. David, who made the radical transition from businessman to artist and writer, paints from his studio on Stokes Croft. He has previously exhibited at the Royal West of England Academy, as well as a number of smaller galleries around the South West. David's intimate, elegant etchings showcase a range of techniques including drypoint, aquatint, sugar-lift and photo-polymer. “With this selection of images, David has produced art on a human scale that will live happily in the home and provide constant pleasure to the eye,” enthuses Marten Rostel at Grant Bradley Gallery. “His aim is to share the excitement and buzz of artistic creation with viewers and lovers of visual art.” ■ Saturday, May 10 to Saturday, May 31, Grant Bradley Gallery, Bristol. See listings for details.

WEEKEND 55


The bone-dry comedy of a world-weary cult hero

PICK OF THE WEEK: Rich Hall’s Hoedown Tuesday, May 13 to Saturday, May 17, Tobacco Factory Theatres, Raleigh Rd, Bristol, 8pm, £16. 0117 902 0344/tobaccofactorytheatres.com.

T

his bone-dry comic from North Carolina has won a devoted following around the world thanks to his waspish observations and world-weary persona. Hall has also revealed himself as a brilliant documentary-maker, too, as the likes of How the West Was Lost and The Dirty South – informative, entertaining enquiries into the myths and realities of his native Deep South – have proved. He’s also, famously, the inspiration for The Simpsons’ grumpy bartender Moe. His stage shows, though, are what Hall’s cult-hero status rests upon – with audiences lured to his expertly crafted tirades, quick-fire banter and wonderfully surreal and off-kilter musical sequences. This evening mash-up of music and comedy will feature Hall’s own band of “talented and chronically unemployable urchins”. “The floor will reek of liquor and spent dreams,” we’re promised. Don’t miss.

JONGLEURS COMEDY CLUB THE CUBAN

O

ur favourite comic to grace Jongleurs this weekend is Erich McElroy, a supremely amiable US expat who’s a big fan of British life – which he dissects in great and joyous detail, from pub etiquette to sexual mores. McElroy’s slightly earnest, American take on English machismo, is very endearing. He’s joined this weekend by laddish Home Counties comic Bryan Lacey, who’s a dab hand at improvisation and audience interaction, and

musical/variety double act The Raymond and Mr Timpkins Revue (pictured). Plus Paul Pirie, an uncompromisingly blunt Scottish comic who spices his anecdotes with some very witty physical comedy and facial expressions. ■ Jongleurs Comedy Club Friday, May 9 & Saturday, May 10, The Cuban, Unit 2, Building 11, Canons Way, Harbourside, Bristol, 9pm/doors 7pm/last entry 8pm, £15/£22.50 with main meal/£25 main meal & dessert. 08700 111 960/www.jongleurs.com.

Property of the week

Your own slice of mansion living

T

his distinctive and imposing period house, the wing of a much larger mansion, occupies a prominent and elevated setting on The Hill, a landmark to the east of the A38, with far-reaching views across the Severn Vale. It sits in extensive, beautifully kept and secluded gardens, with sweeping lawns and magnificent trees, a terrace, block-paved parking and a three-car garage for which permission exists for conversion to a residential annexe. The Arts & Crafts mansion was built in 1901, then subdivided in the 1920s, with The Red House now the largest part. It is a grand house in its own right, with a wood-panelled hallway and galleried landing above opening to the balcony; a triple-aspect drawing room, formal dining room, study, kitchen/breakfast room, pantry, wine cellar and a further substantial living room overlooking the garden.

60 S E E I T ● ● ● ● ●

The master bedroom with en suite plus two further bedrooms and period-style bathroom are on the first floor, while at the top of the house are three further double bedrooms, one of which is also en suite. Almondsbury is the first village to the north of the M4/M5 interchange, so is ideal for commuters looking for a country lifestyle while remaining within easy reach of the city of Bristol. A primary school and community shop are at the heart of the village and Marlwood Secondary School is just four miles to the north. There’s also a church, The Bowl pub, a GP surgery and dental practice, while The Mall at Cribbs Causeway is just one junction further down the M5 and Parkway station is approximately 3.7 miles to the south. A little further out, the market town of Thornbury offers a variety of shops, restaurants and a leisure centre.

Garden to reflect seasons of life Gardening When children have flown the nest, their parents often take the opportunity to change the once family-orientated garden into more of a grown-up affair. Bristol garden designer Tom Phillips explains how it may be done

A

s garden designers, we often get calls from existing customers asking for alterations, or additions to their gardens. As yet, we haven’t had a call from a new owner, asking us to rip out one of our designs but it is inevitable that it will happen one day! Garden styles evolve and customers have widely varied needs. We get plenty of calls from people with young families, where a garden is full of steep steps and hard edges which need softening. However, there are plenty of customers who play out the whole family cycle from fledgling chicks to empty nest, without moving house. During this time the garden evolves to the rapidly changing needs of a growing family. Out go the sand pit and plastic toys; in come the climbing frame and trampoline, until suddenly, one day, a calm descends on the garden and the kids have started to move out. At this point, the garden takes on a different prospect. Of course, children will always be back for extended visits, but at this stage in life, with extra time available, the outdoor space presents a new challenge. Maybe that challenge is to finally get that veg bed sorted out, or indulge in a new pond, and get the garden just the way you want it. Many people want a space that they can enjoy with minimal extra maintenance. In this garden, pictured, we approached the design to include repositioning an existing pond, which had seen better days. Our clients wanted plenty of space for planting, but to include a small lawn. One side of the garden had been slightly raised and, because the garden was walled, we were able to create a decent raised bed using reclaimed Victorian bricks. At the point where this wall approaches the house, we built a semi-circular brick seat surrounding a small

circular patio. The seat is just big enough to seat the family of four people snugly. It is next to the rear patio doors, so works well for the occasional quick morning coffee, or an evening sundowner. Adjacent to this paving we fitted a deck which runs up to the back doors. The whole garden was raised 150mm during the construction and the deck now slopes gently down from the house. We also refurbished the existing rear patio, changing the shape from square to quarter circle using matching bricks to define the shape. Raising the garden helped to reduce the step up to this paved area. There was a collection of grey Victorian stable bricks which we wanted to find a use for. We combined these with tumbled Indian sandstone setts to form the backbone of the snaking path leading across the garden to the rear gate. This leads under a rose arch and past the new raised pond which was constructed using the same bricks capped with sandstone setts. A final plan in the garden is to build a pizza

oven on the main patio, so householders and visitors alike can enjoy the smell of freshly baked, homemade pizzas.

Rising star aims for Eurovision greatness BEN FOGLE’S ANIMAL CLINIC MAY 13, CHANNEL 5, 8PM ■ Adventurer Ben Fogle is temporarily hanging up his walking boots, ice pick, and rowing oars to set up camp at the University of Liverpool’s Leahurst campus, which is home to one of the UK’s top veterinary colleges. He is going behind the scenes at the campus’s state-of-the-art operating theatres to follow the daily dramas that come with treating the 10,000 sick animals brought in every year. In this first episode, staff treat a horse called Polo, who is at serious risk of dying from colic.

EPISODES MAY 14, BBC2, 10PM

EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 2014 MAY 10, BBC1, 8PM

B

lue, Engelbert Humperdinck, Bonnie Tyler – over the last few years, the UK has sent some pretty big names to Eurovision. And let’s be honest, the results have been underwhelming. So, this year it seems the powers-that-be have taken a different approach, and picked a rising star instead, in the form of Molly and her song Children of the Universe. Not that the singer, whose full name is Molly Smitten-Downes, is a total novice when it comes to performing in musical competitions. In 2012, she picked up the Best Urban/Pop Act prize at Live and Unsigned, and in 2013 won Best Song at the Best of British Unsigned Music Awards. Molly says: “There is a stigma around Eurovision; it would be foolish not to realise that,

but there are great acts that come through the contest... That’s what I’m doing it for – I’d like to have a career as a songwriter and where else am I going to get an opportunity for 180 million people to hear my work? How do you top that?” But as she takes to the stage in Copenhagen, Denmark, the competition is going to be tough, especially when she’s up against the host nation’s Basim, German trio Elaiza, France’s Twin Twin, and Spain’s Ruth Lorenzo, who British viewers may recognise from The X Factor. However, the most eye-catching entrant may be Austria’s bearded drag artist Conchita Wurst, who should definitely give commentator Graham Norton something to talk about.

■ The last time we caught up with the fictionalised version of Matt LeBlanc featured in this sitcom, his affair with TV network boss Merc’s wife had just become public knowledge. When we meet him again in this, the third series, his life is in tatters, and not just because of that indiscretion. But what about Sean and Beverly, the English writers at the centre of the series? Have they managed to patch up their differences and get their marriage back on track? Well, yes – for now.

MASTERCHEF: THE FINALS MAY 16, BBC1, 8.30PM ■ There’s good news for domestic bods – MasterChef is about to launch another eager amateur chef upon us – but we can rest assured that whoever is crowned champion has been brought up to scratch by some of the best in the business. Judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace take no prisoners. After a formidable eight-week competition, the three finalists must push themselves to the limit for one last time.
