MEET THE WINNER CHRISTINE WATTS

C

ompetition winner Christine Watts has enjoyed some five-star treatment thanks to Weekend and the London Shard. The 48-year-old hairdresser from Warmley has won a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes in our View From The Shard competition. Ten other lucky readers have won tickets to take in views of London from the stunning building’s viewing platform. Christine said: “I couldn’t believe it when I picked up the phone and they said I’d won. It was amazing. “I never enter competitions but this was too good to miss. “I love shoes. I’ve never worn a pair like this before – and I’d never be able to own a pair of shoes like this if I hadn’t won this competition. It’s wonderful and they are perfect.” Weekend teamed up with The View From The Shard to give away ten pairs of tickets to experience the attraction and a voucher to spend on Christian Louboutin shoes at Harvey Nichols up to the value of £500. The Shard is the iconic new building at the heart of the London Bridge Quarter. The Shard is a vertical town comprising offices, restaurants, the five-star Shangri-La hotel, residences, retail and The View from The Shard visitor attraction.

t’s not very often that I well-up when walking through a shop doorway, but when I visit Dancewell on Cotham Hill I find myself with a lump in my throat. If you know anything about the dance world, you will know Dancewell. The famous ballet shop opened its doors in 1959 and has catered for dancers from tiny tots to prima ballerinas for the past 55 years. This is the shop where my mum bought me my first pair of dance shoes in the early Eighties. It’s where I got my first leotard and proudly tried on my first tutu. It’s where I was fitted for my first pointe shoes at the age of 12 and my last pair at the age of 17. I haven’t revisited the shop for 15 years and when I do I’m surprisingly emotional about it all – especially when I see the same owner, Jill Gilling, behind the counter. So am I just a silly, sentimental old fool? “Don’t worry – it’s not just you!” smiles Jill. “This place holds a special place in a lot of people’s hearts – and we’re proud of that. “You little girls grow up with us,” she tells me. “They come in as these little dots and then come back at regular intervals for new shoes and costumes. Then they all go off to university and we don’t see them for a bit, but then they come back a few years later with their little dots. “We often have grandma, mum and toddler here reminiscing. It’s surprising how many people move away from Bristol but still come back to this shop to get their daughter’s first pair of ballet shoes or pointes. It’s a special place.” Jill has seen a fair few dancers pass through her much-loved shop’s doorway over the years; she has been involved in the shop since her parents-in-law took it over in 1979. “That was boom time, when Pineapple Studios had just kicked off, Fame was coming out and dancing was all the rage! I started

working at the shop in 1989 and have been here ever since.” Dancewell stocks everything a dancer needs, from those beginning dance through to professionals, from small groups and dance schools to major ballet and theatrical companies. There are floor-to-ceiling glass drawers rammed with hundreds of pairs of ballet shoes as well as a wide selection of tap, modern, jazz, ballroom, salsa and character shoes. The walls are festooned with brightly coloured leotards in a wide variety of styles. There are pretty tutus, bright Lycra skirts, ballet cases and dance bags. There’s also a display cabinet with a range of gifts for the dance fanatic, including keyrings, photo frames and china ornaments. But if Dancewell is known for anything it’s for its range and fitting of pointe shoes (the ballet shoes that allow dancers to stand on their toes). “We specialise in pointe shoe fitting,” says Jill. “So we have lots of young girls between 11 and 14 coming in to get their first pair of pointe shoes, which is a big milestone in their lives.” This is a very specialised service and Jill and assistant Mandy, who has worked at the shop for 30 years, are experienced fitters who have attended various training courses over the years. “People who don’t know anything about dance probably think ‘what’s that queer little shop on Cotham Hill?’” concludes Jill with a smile. “But for those involved in this wonderful world, we are very well known.” And very well-loved.

WEEKEND 9


Feel the heat to stretch and tone Warm muscles are less prone to injury during exercise, so the advent of “hot yoga,” practised in a room heated to around 40°C, makes sense. Now, for the first time, Bristolians are being offered hot pilates too, writes Kate Edser

W

e all know that it’s important to warm up before exercise, but we wouldn’t usually choose to work out in a warm environment; it’s just too sweaty. The norm is to train in an air-conditioned studio, a swimming pool heated to about 29C, or to go for an outdoor run that, even at the height of an English summer, is unlikely to occur in temperatures beyond 25C. “Hot yoga”, practised in temperatures of 37-40C, is a notable exception. True, it’s not aerobic exercise that raises the heart rate significantly, but the muscles still work hard. Ed Wood runs Yogafurie, one of only two organisations in Bristol offering hot yoga and the only one offering hot pilates – a recent addition to his repertoire.

He explains the benefits of practising in heat: “My understanding is that all of that connective tissue in the body is bathed in a protein gel and that gel is slightly less viscous at warmer temperatures, so we can get closer to our full range of movement. “I don’t know if a deeper stretch is the right way of putting it, but you’ll certainly get nearer to your actual range of movement and that will change the more you practise. “I run the class at between 38 and 40 degrees C. Under one’s skin the body is 37/38 degrees, but once you start moving in that heat the body has to work harder to stay cool and it can be uncomfortable for some people. “I don’t want to make it a mentally attritional experience. The temperature is sufficient to get the desired effect and what I don’t want to do is distract people by giving them too much heat.”

It is important to Ed that the business, based just off the Gloucester Road in Horfield, is sensitive to the environment as well as encouraging greater wellbeing and, to this end, he’s invested in some nifty heaters. “The approach I took was to get the most eco-friendly heating I could find,” he says. “There are quicker systems, but they use more power. I use the latest generation ultralow consumption heaters, which use less energy than most domestic central heating boilers. The heat produced has the same frequency and wavelength as the sun, so it feels just like practising outside in sunshine.” It’s two and a half years since Ed made the jump from working in IT to a hot yoga business, and he’s not looking back. Describing his journey, he says: “I’d always been interested in various kinds of movement. As a younger man it was martial arts, and I taught

that in my spare time. That started with taekwondo and I ended up in tai chi, which I also taught. At that time, my daughter, who was 14, wanted to go to a yoga class. “Somehow she talked me into doing the class and it was amazing. I was still practising martial arts and tai chi when I took a terrible knee injury and at that point I couldn’t do anything apart from swimming and yoga. “It was through yoga that my knee came back into function after a failed operation and talk of another operation, so at that point I made the transition completely to yoga. “A few years later I took a teacher training course and eventually left my full time job in IT at the end of 2011.” Now he teaches two classes of hot yoga five nights a week, from Thursday to Sunday, and has found another teacher to take hot pilates on a Friday evening.

HOT YOGA For the uninitiated, yoga takes several different forms. Ed’s style is “vinyasa flow”, which is powerful and, as the name suggests, involves mostly continuous movement, though there are some static poses. By contrast, the pioneer of hot yoga, Indian Bikram Choudray, devised a system based on a series of 26 Hatha yoga poses. One of his affiliated studios, Bikram Yoga Bristol, was opened in Bristol in 2009, near St Nicholas Market, by Georgina and Carl Gray.

How to tackle snoring and enjoy a silent night Dr Adam Whittle, the lead physician for the respiratory sleep unit at the Bristol Royal Infirmary, explains the very annoying habit of snoring and outlines what can be done to silence the issue

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF SNORING? ■ Snoring occurs when the upper airway relaxes during sleep. The airway narrows and is floppy, so it vibrates when air goes in and out, which makes the noise. Some people, however, are just built with a narrow throat. The problem is worsened by factors such as lying on your back (because the tongue falls back), drinking alcohol, being overweight, taking a strong sedative, or having very enlarged tonsils. It seems to be more common in people who smoke. It is worse if you breathe through your mouth, because of a blocked nose, for example.

WHAT ARE THE SELF-HELP OPTIONS? ■ Mandibular advancement splints are mouth guards which position the bottom jaw forward, thereby moving the tongue forward and widening the throat. You can buy these over the internet or from chemists, or get one fitted by a dentist. These are the most effective devices that people can buy for themselves, but some find them uncomfortable. ■ Nasal dilating strips – stuck across the bridge of the nose – can help if your nose is narrow or partly blocked, but they don’t make much difference to most people. ■ If your nose is blocked then nasal decongestant sprays or hayfever (steroid sprays) can help. Consult your doctor if you are planning to use these for long-term treatment.

WHAT SORT OF PROCEDURES CAN HELP? ■ Surgery or other treatments simply for snoring are not funded by the NHS except in very exceptional circumstances. Surgery to correct a blocked nose may be considered if other treatments, such as sprays, have not worked. Tonsillectomy can help if the tonsils are very large, but it will only be done on the NHS if the patients has repeated episodes of tonsillitis. Weight loss surgery (gastric bands etc) will help snoring if the patient loses weight as a result! The patient obviously has to be very overweight and to meet certain criteria. People with sleep apnoea can have treatment with a machine called CPAP, which blows air into a mask the patient wears at night – the increased air pressure keeps the throat open, so it stops snoring as well as treating the sleep apnoea. Mandibular advancement splints can be fitted in hospital dental or maxillofacial departments, but this will only usually be available on the NHS if the patient has sleep apnoea as well as snoring.

IS SURGERY SUCCESSFUL?

WHAT ABOUT PROCEDURES OUTSIDE THE NHS?

■ Surgery on the throat simply to correct snoring is not available on the NHS because the success rate is low (less than 50 per cent) and the effect is often not permanent. CPAP works nearly 100 per cent of the time if the patient uses the machine and wears the mask; about 70 per cent of people with sleep apnoea do manage to use this treatment. Figures for mandibular devices vary according to the device. Probably about 60 per cent of people who try them for snoring find that they can tolerate wearing the splint and that it helps.

■ Throat surgery is available in the private sector. However, the success rate is 50 per cent at best, it’s very painful, there are side effects and some patients restart snoring a few years later even if it works at first. CPAP, tonsillectomy, nose surgery, weight loss surgery, mandibular splints etc are all available in the private sector and people who are not eligible to have these funded by the NHS may find they can get them privately. Many private insurance policies will not cover procedures simply for snoring.

■ Dr Adam Whittle is a consultant with an interest in sleep medicine. He’s the lead physician for the respiratory sleep unit at the Bristol Royal Infirmary. For more information, see www.britishsnoring.co.uk

Censorship versus the right to be forgotten WATCH THE ABBEY ROAD DASH ■ Everyone loves webcams, they’re one of the few things that’s survived from the early days of the web until today. The people who run Abbey Road recording studio in London have set one up looking at the pedestrian crossing made famous on the Beatles’ album cover (abbeyroad.com/crossing). Now you can pass the time watching tourists risk life and limb re-creating that image in front of ever-frustrated drivers.

STAR IN YOUR OWN GIFS ■ If you don’t know what animated gifs are, where have you been recently? A gif is a moving animation, just a few frames long, that can be saved and shared as a simple image file. In the old days they were used for “UNDER CONSTRUCTION” signs on websites, now they’re used for fun. And if you want to make your own using your own webcam, you can, at this site: www.andtheniwaslike.co.

The European Court of Justice in Luxemburg

EVER WANTED TO BORROW A DOG?

A legal ruling about privacy has left internet experts struggling to explain its implications

T

he European Union Court of Justice last week ruled that Google must remove links from its search results when asked to do so by a member of the public. The case was brought by Spanish citizen Mario Costeja Gonzalez, who wanted to change the results that appear when you search Google for his name. The court agreed and said that Google should comply with his request. The trouble with this ruling is the precedent it sets. If anyone can insist that Google (or any other site) must remove links about them when asked, then how will that work in practice? In particular, if someone makes such a request, how can Google be sure that they are the right person? What happens when it’s someone with a very common name? Another problem: what happens when a disgraced public figure wants to clean up their

reputation? Could this ruling allow them to effectively edit the internet to suit their own purposes? The ruling has caused widespread dismay. Javier Ruiz, policy director at the Open Rights Group (www.openrightsgroup.org), said: “We need to take into account individuals’ right to privacy but this ruling raises significant concerns. If search engines are forced to remove links to legitimate public content, it could lead to online censorship.” The ruling says that there’s a balance to strike in every possible case. People would have to prove that the information they wanted removed was “inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant”. It’s a sign of a deeper problem: the internet is still young, but governed and controlled by old, outdated laws. Only when we have a new law that properly understands and takes account of the internet, will we properly be able to settle disputes like this.

■ Want to go walkies, but don’t want to have a pooch of your own? A new site called Borrow My Doggy (www.borrowmydoggy.com) lets you rent a dog for a while. It works a bit like a dating site: you have to create a profile about you, and browse profiles of dogs. It costs £8/year to be a borrower, and £35/year for dog owners. An idea that’s, er, hound to get a few tails wagging.

Place your bets for a summer of fun For racing aficionados and newcomers alike, Bristol’s local courses have a lot to offer in addition to the action on the turf, writes Steve Mellen

T

he pounding of hooves over firm ground, the roar of the crowd… the sound of Tom Jones singing. It’s all on offer for those who fancy a day at the races this summer. Although Bristol doesn’t have its own racecourse, there are two within a short drive – Chepstow and Bath. And the latter, high up in the hills to the east of Bristol, is as close to Oldland Common as it is to some parts of Bath anyway, so it almost feels like the two cities share the course. To get to Chepstow Racecourse, take the M48 across the first Severn Bridge and head up past Chepstow itself to the A465, a journey of some 20 miles, which will give you plenty of time to read the Racing Post – assuming you’re not the driver! Back to Bath, meanwhile, and should you turn up Bath Road from the A420, the view as you climb up towards the course is worth the journey alone, as the countryside opens up behind you. We should mention the height of the course, because even when the weather’s nice you’ll want to bear in mind that it can be pretty windy up on the ridge, and you might want a jumper even in the height of summer. Racing purists would say there are more

beautiful courses, but while we don’t have an Ascot or a Cheltenham close by, both these “local” courses have a wonderful feel to them and are a great way to enjoy racing. This summer, as ever, both are staging regular meetings at different times, with plenty of afternoon racing thrown in among the evening and weekend events. For those who want to get out of work early and take in a couple of races and celebrate, or not, with a pint afterwards, there are usually a couple of races left after 4pm, too. And, of course, there’s the music. Chepstow can boast not only Jools Holland this summer, but also Tom Jones – and I mean the real deal, not some tribute act. The Welsh course is also staging a beer and Balti night, and a Caribbean-themed race meeting, so there’s plenty to enjoy even if you don’t know your Tote from your Ladbrokes. Chepstow, like Bath, is also staging its own Ladies’ Day, theirs being on August 14 whereas Bath’s fashion parade will be on August 30. Bath has a real ale night, a series of summer party evenings and last but not least – The Wurzels! The legendary West Country act will be serenading the crowd on Friday, August 1 as part of a cider-themed meeting. In all, the two courses are holding 23 race meetings between now and the end of August – so there’s plenty to choose from.

New opening Quirky café with rustic charm

A

fter time spent in a horsebox and a pub, Katie & Kim’s Kitchen has finally found its first permanent site – and where better than in the heart of Montpelier? Scottish-born former art students Katie Houston and Kim Glegg have become well-known faces on the underground Bristol food scene over the past couple of years. They started out running pop-up supper clubs from their house before converting a horsebox into a mobile food stall on Stokes Croft – a business that won them a prize at the British Street Food Awards last year. After the horsebox, they popped up again at the Hillgrove Porter Stores in Kingsdown, cooking in the pub at weekends as their search for a permanent site continued. Last weekend, they finally threw open the doors of their first proper café next to the Radford Mill Farm Shop in Picton Street. Katie & Kim’s Kitchen is a modest, rustic affair with whitewashed walls, a small open kitchen at the far end and one huge communal table made from reclaimed wooden planks. The table, which must seat 20 people comfortably, was made by Katie and Kim, who also did the painting and decorating with the help of friends and family. Open all day until 9pm (they tweak the menu in the evening and add a couple of new

19 EAT IT ● ● ● ● ●

dishes – it was going to be a cassoulet that night), the daytime menu is chalked on the wall. Self-taught, Katie and Kim don’t describe themselves as chefs, more cooks, but the lack of any professional kitchen experience doesn’t detract from the fact that these young women know what good seasonal food is and, more importantly, what people like to eat. When I visited, the menu was short and to the point, with just three savoury choices and as many sweet options. There were toasted Cheddar and rosemary scones (£2.50) and fried egg rolls with parsley oil, slow-roasted tomatoes and aioli (£4), which could have been followed by custard tarts (£2) or meringues with Somerset cream and rhubarb for £5. I went for the ham hock roll (£5), which arrived promptly despite the café being busy and a queue forming at the counter. The toasted white roll (baked by Katie that morning) was generously layered with thick slices of salty bacon, a perfect fried egg with a runny yolk, a few slow-roasted tomatoes for sweetness and blobs of punchy parsley pesto and garlicky aioli. I followed that with a still-warm chocolate and hazelnut brownie (£2.50) with a crisp and cracked exterior and a gooey, fudge-like centre, the sweetness of which was balanced by a well-made coffee from an amusingly terse menu choice of “white or black”.

ext month sees the release of The Natural Cook, the debut cookbook from award-winning Bristol eco-chef Tom Hunt. Divided into four seasonal chapters covering 26 vegetable or fruit “hero” ingredients, the book shows the home cook how to produce delicious globally inspired dishes from local produce. Hunt cut his culinary teeth working for Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and he also owns a mobile restaurant (made up of yurts and canopies, naturally) that tours the country throughout the summer, serving seasonal tapas to festivalgoers. Hunt is also the founder of Stokes Croft’s Poco restaurant, which won the Observer Food Monthly award for Most Ethical Restaurant in the UK last year. The food at Poco is driven entirely by the seasons, the kitchen using a network of local suppliers, all of them named on the huge blackboard menu in the light and colourful main dining area. These include Hart’s Bakery (bread), Severn Project (salad leaves) and Haresfield Farm (eggs). Fish comes from sustainable day boats on the South Coast – on the day I was there, it had been caught by the crew of the New Seeker at Lyme Regis. The smaller front room is more tapas bar in style with exposed brick walls, high tables and

stools and a window decorated with strings of dried chillies and garlic. On a sunny Saturday lunchtime, the place was packed, the Middle Eastern trance music in the background making for an appropriately laidback setting for a lazy weekend brunch. The menu moves up several gears in the evening with a tapas-based menu that might include Plymouth squid, chips, lemon and aioli; rhubarb and pork tagine; and barley verde risotto. At lunch, there is a daily soup, a seasonal salad plate, sourdough sandwiches, bacon sarnies and cold tapas dishes. I ordered the Moroccan scramble (£7.20), a dish I’ve enjoyed a number of times. Served on a chipped white enamel camping plate, the slices of grilled sourdough toast were topped with creamy scrambled free-range eggs the colour of the sun, a few chopped red chillies, a blob of fiery harissa, two firm, deep-flavoured mutton merguez sausages and a final sprinkling of fresh coriander. Spicy, vibrant with underlying flavours of cumin and coriander, it was a full-flavoured, steadying start to the day, washed down with a well-made flat white coffee, albeit one served in a tricky-to-hold glass tumbler. There is no lunchtime dessert menu, just a jar of Cornish fairings, which seemed a bit of a missed opportunity. With such good coffee, a few seasonal cakes wouldn’t go amiss.

Dinner for grown-ups Music and merriment at Christmas

Four cheese and red onion tart, sauteed potatoes and Severn Project salad

D

ating back to the 17th century, when the docks used to run past the bottom of Christmas Steps, this higgledy-piggledy Georgian pub – for years the Three Sugar Loaves – was a sugar refinery, the consignments of Caribbean sugar cane arriving on ships a few steps from the front door. The original fire used to turn the raw sugar cane into sugar still remains as a feature behind the bar. It’s now used to house the pub’s whisky collection, although perhaps bottles of rum would be more appropriate. Earlier this month, this historic pub reopened as The Christmas Steps, a new venture from Dave Smeaton (who also has The Spotted Cow in Bedminster and The Big Chill Bar in Small Street) and the team behind the cool music magazine Crack. The pub has been completely renovated and it feels more spacious and brighter than before, particularly the top room where a floor has been removed to reveal the original double-height ceiling and windows that haven’t been seen for several decades. As is the trend these days, the designers have taken the building back to its original exposed stone walls and beams, a look that isn’t dissimilar to Stokes Croft craft ale bar Crofters Rights. Although not intentionally jumping on the craft ale bandwagon, The Christmas Steps

22 EAT IT ● ● ● ● ●

certainly has an impressive range of beers on cask, keg and in the bottle, with local breweries such as Arbor, Moor and Wiper and True well represented. The pub has also forged a link with the nearby Bristol Cider Shop and there is a range of South West artisan ciders dispensed directly from boxes behind the bar. At lunchtime, there is a concise menu including a ploughman’s, a range of sandwiches (served on Mark’s Bread sourdough), macaroni cheese and Buxton Butchers sausages and mash. In the evening, the menu extends to more restaurant-style dishes including pan-roast sea trout with samphire, fennel rosti, chilli and basil-spiced mussels (£11.95), and a 40-day aged rump steak with ale-battered onions and hand-cut chips and watercress (£14.50). I went for the warm asparagus and blue cheese tart (£7.95), the wobbly, creamy filling encased with crumbly, buttery pastry and served with pan-roasted pink fir potatoes and a well-dressed salad of rocket and mizuna leaves, wedges of tomato and slices of red onion for crunch. To follow, a faultless apple and blackberry crumble (£4.50) with a loose, rubble-like topping revealing a generous layer of soft Bramleys, the tartness of which was countered by a scoop of sweet, rich vanilla ice cream.

PUB REVIEW ADAM & EVE, HOTWELLS

N

obody could accuse the Adam & Eve of not trying its best to attract customers over the years. Like many pubs struggling for survival, this tucked-away Hotwells local has changed hands numerous times in recent years, each new incumbent trying various ways to drum up more custom. A few years ago I recall the pub going through something of a golden period when an ambitious young couple, one of whom was an experienced chef, really made a go of the dining side of the business. Their hard work helped the Adam & Eve gain quite a reputation for its restaurant-quality food, particularly Sunday lunches. When they left, another team took a very different route in order to attract more business, with open mic nights and even film evenings showing old movies such as Psycho and the 1958 version of Dracula starring Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. The Adam & Eve changed hands again fairly recently and now describes itself as a “bar & grill” offering a menu featuring local produce. When I popped in on Thursday evening, the place was relatively quiet, with a handful of customers, all of them eating and most of them making use of one of the many voucher schemes available to bargain-seeking diners.

There was a blackboard menu offering a £9.95 deal for a starter and main course – options included BBQ chicken wings, fishcakes and beef sizzlers with sticky rice. A separate printed menu listed several steak options, priced from £9.95 for the “flat iron” to £18.95 for a T-bone, with side orders (including chips) an extra £3 and sauces £1.50 each. That’s ambitious pricing for any pub, but particularly one tucked away in the back streets of Hotwells. The Adam & Eve’s new website claims that the “prime dry aged steaks simply melt on your tongue”, although the party of four next to me may beg to differ as I overheard them complaining that the steak was “on the chewy side” and that the chips were lukewarm. There was also a range of “pub classics” such as homemade burgers, fish and chips and pie of the week – all at £9.95. Of the three real ales on offer, my pint of Bath Ales Gem was OK but not in sparkling form and it was served by what can only be described as a disinterested barmaid. I have always quite liked the Adam & Eve and it has always had a lot of potential, but on this occasion it was lacking in atmosphere and sparkle. I just hope I caught it on an off night. ■ 7 Hope Chapel Hill, Hotwells, Bristol, BS8 4ND. Tel 0117 329 2025.

Meat-free and full of fiery flavour

V

egfest, Europe’s biggest celebration of vegan and vegetarian food and drink, returns to Bristol’s Harbourside this weekend with an estimated 20,000 people expected to visit the three-day event. Vegfest has been promoting the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle to tens of thousands of people in Bristol for over a decade now. This year’s event will include more than 140 stalls, serving up a fantastic variety of veggie fare from Thai, Caribbean, Colombian and Indian street food to pizzas and paella. With a diverse line-up of live music to top it all off, including headliners Boney M featuring Maizie Williams, Peter Hook (Joy Division), Abba Gold and Gwen Dickey’s Rose Royce, this year’s VegFest is sure to draw a big crowd over the May Bank Holiday weekend. See Music on page 28 for details. Meanwhile, the event will also feature talks, workshops, cookery demonstrations, a cinema tent and a kids’ area with cookery classes, workshops and entertainment. The cookery demos will take in a diverse range of topics, from vegan cuisine in the last days of the Raj to a raw Mexican food fiesta. Jane Easton, food and cookery co-ordinator at Viva!, the vegetarian and vegan campaigning charity, will be giving cookery demonstrations on Saturday and Sunday. Her Sunday demonstration is called Everyone’s Going Dairy-free and features delicious dairy-free recipes such as artichoke filo pie with creamy butterbean, sun-dried tomato and olive filling, and mango and pecan cheesecake. On Saturday, Jane will be hosting an informal talk entitled 30-Day Vegan: Improve Your Life in Just One Month, which is aimed at helping people make the switch to a vegan diet. She will also be holding a cookery demo for “sexy sides and salads”, which includes this delicious recipe for smoky black bean cakes. Jane says: “This recipe is a variant on the popular veggie bean burger and was born from my love affair with smoked paprika; the smoky, slightly chilli flavour makes it a winner and it can be used in all sorts of meals. “The pulse family – beans, peas and lentils – features some of the world’s most important staple foods. Whether it’s lentil dhal, chilli beans, hummus, beans on toast, beansprouts, mushy peas or more exotic offerings, they offer endless culinary inspiration. “They are also an inexpensive yet an excellent source of healthy low-fat protein and iron – as well as a good source of vitamins, minerals and fibre. “Regular schemes and campaigns such as Meat-free Monday are encouraging us to eat more plant foods to help the environment, our health and the animals. This is a low-carbon, meat- and dairy-free recipe that is tasty, cheap and cheerful.” Visit www.bristol.vegfest.co.uk.

SMOKY BLACK BEAN CAKES MAKES 2-4 CAKES ■ Half a red onion, finely chopped ■ 2 cloves garlic, crushed ■ Half a 400g tin of cooked black beans (or red beans such as kidney or aduki) ■ 250g/9oz cooked brown rice (for a cheat’s version, use ready-cooked sachets such as Uncle Ben and Tilda) ■ Half a tsp mild chilli powder ■ Half to one tsp smoked paprika, to taste ■ Salt and black pepper ■ 1 tbsp olive oil or a few squirts of low-cal cooking spray

■ Fry the onion in a little oil or oil spray until it starts to soften then cook in the garlic. Add the spices and cook for about a minute. Partly mash the beans. Mash most of the rice. Mix everything well together and form into three to four burgers or more. Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or leave overnight. Heat a non-stick frying pan and add the oil/low-cal cooking spray. Cook burgers for two to three minutes or until brown – if they fall apart, squidge them back together with the fish slice. Turn and repeat the process. Alternatively, bake in the oven for about 20-25 minutes on a lightly oiled baking tray – at about 190C/Gas Mark 5 – until lightly browned on each side. Turn once. Serve in lettuce leaves or a bun with a dollop of Vegan mayonnaise, tomato salsa, guacamole or tomato sauce, warmed through.

he peace and tranquillity of our surroundings finally hit us. As we relaxed in the indoor heated pool of The Oriel Hotel and Spa in St Asaph, North Wales, Bristol seemed far away. We’d only driven three hours from the city to reach the stunning mountains and sparse countryside, and were delighted to settle right in. Checking into the four-star hotel was easy, and we were impressed with our room, which was spacious and had everything we needed. The beds were big and the pillows were soft, and, while it was tempting to sleep away the afternoon, we decided to dip our toes in the hotel pool. Not huge but big enough for swimming lengths, it was an excellent added extra for our stay, on what was a typically rainy Welsh weekend. It also offered a small sauna and a range of spa treatments – and, although we didn’t indulge, we were impressed by the variety. The hotel had a big choice of food on its evening menu. Although it has the charm and elegance of an old-style British hotel, the menu was thoroughly modern, with a wide choice of classic, but exciting dishes. We started with the smoked mackerel pate and homemade mushroom soup. I continued with a peri-peri chicken breast with French fries, coleslaw and a watercress salad, while my companion was more adventurous, choosing the roasted fillet of sea bass, roasted Tuscan vegetables and crushed potatoes. All were served on slabs of Welsh slate and looked and tasted absolutely delicious. But better was still to come. Our desserts, a white and dark chocolate raspberry “flowerpot” (designed to look just like a plant in a pot!) and a creamy lemon posset, were heavenly. The next day – after a wonderful night’s sleep and despite filling up the night before – we couldn’t help but sample the delicious Welsh breakfast, with a vast choice of continental and cooked options – which, importantly, was not greasy at all. With the rain subsiding and the sun peeking through the clouds, we ventured an hour’s drive south from the hotel over the stunning mountain range to the sweet tourist town of Llangollen. We took a trip on the town’s famous steam

train, along the River Dee and through the hilly countryside, which is classed as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As the train chugged along we saw plenty of spring lambs and beautiful scenery as we journeyed seven and a half miles upstream to the village of Carrog and back. The train consisted of old-fashioned carriages with immensely comfortable seats and huge windows, so it was easy to sit back and enjoy the view. Back in Llangollen, a stroll around the town provided some pleasant souvenir shopping opportunities before we took shelter from more inevitable rain in Gales of Llangollen. Its wood-panelled bar and informal atmosphere were just right for a cosy night of good food and decent wine. We liked the idea of some hot pasta and went for the Dolcelatte and walnut tortelli, with white wine cream, and a goat’s cheese and lemon arancini. Next, we felt it only right to try the local Welsh lamb and beef dishes. I went for braised beef tortelli, while my companion chose the shoulder of lamb. Both were flavoursome and tender, and definitely warmed our insides. We finished with a vanilla panna cotta and a sticky toffee pudding, which left us full to bursting and completely satisfied. After another tranquil night’s sleep at the hotel – and one last dip in the pool – we hit the road. On the way home we decided to drop in at Erddig Hall – a National Trust property near Wrexham, widely acclaimed as one of Britain’s finest historic houses. Erddig is a fascinating yet unpretentious early 18th century country house reflecting the upstairs downstairs life of an aristocratic family over 250 years. As fans of Downton Abbey, the unique collection of servants’ portraits, and amazing upstairs rooms of fine furniture, textiles and wallpapers, definitely kept us interested. The grounds, which include a 1,200-acre country park and formal walled garden, were stunning, and great for a stroll. When we visited, spring blooms burst from every corner, and we enjoyed the gardens just as much as the house. As the time came to make our way back to Bristol, we couldn’t help but feel a lot more relaxed than when we left.

Festival season starts in the city

T

here is only a month to go until Glastonbury, so it’s time to dust off the sunblock, whistles and flip-flops (not forgetting the wellies) as we enter summer festival season. To get you warmed up, Bristol plays host to a number of big musical events this bank holiday weekend and it will be hard to walk around the city without hearing a range of live music, day or night. Whether it’s folk at the Colston Hall, Seventies disco and punk around the Harbourside, chilled club sounds at Castle Park, or the plethora of cool indie bands appearing at the city’s main music venues as part of Dot to Dot, there really is something for everybody this weekend as Bristol goes festival crazy. This weekend sees the return of VegFest, Europe’s biggest celebration of vegan and vegetarian food, which always puts on well-attended evening gigs on its stage at Lloyd’s Amphitheatre in the Harbourside. The three-day event starts tonight with a line-up of classic disco acts, including Seventies chart-toppers Boney M featuring Maizie Williams, Gwen Dickey’s Rose Royce and tribute band ABBA Gold. The festival takes on a more punkish attitude on Saturday night, with Joy Division and New Order bass player Peter Hook and his new band The Light, who will be joined by Ruts DC and Goldblade. The final night of VegFest on Sunday offers the more relaxed reggae sounds of Black Roots and Zion Train, bringing to a close what promises to be a delicious weekend of great food and music around the Harbourside. Now into its third year, Love Saves The Day takes place at Castle Park on Saturday and Sunday and, although most of the 5,000 tickets are now sold out, there are a few left. Organised by the team behind Glastonbury’s WOW stage, See No Evil and one half of the team behind the In:Motion series, Love Saves The Day brings together some of the best DJs and live dance acts around. A green-field festival with its roots firmly in clubs, this two-day event has a packed line-up appearing across several stages and tents. This year’s highlights include Annie Mac, SBTRKT, Jamie XX, Neneh Cherry & Rocketnumbernine, Sherwood & Pinch and Eats Everything, with dozens more acts guaranteed to make this the ultimate bank holiday party. If indie music is more your thing, Saturday’s Dot to Dot Festival serves up dozens of bands at seven of the city’s biggest music venues. Now in its ninth year and established as the UK’s

premier festival for unearthing the hottest new talent, previous Dot to Dot line-ups have seen performances from Jake Bugg, Ellie Goulding, Mumford and Sons, Ed Sheeran, London Grammar, The Cribs and many more. Saturday’s event sees bands playing at O2 Academy, Thekla, Fleece, Exchange, Louisiana, Trinity Centre and Start the Bus. Headlining this year’s festival will be Peace, the zeitgeist guitar band of 2014, and they top a line-up that includes lo-fi surf rockers Real Estate, The Midnight Beast, We Were Evergreen, Wolf Alice, Fyfe, Darlia, Norma Jean Martine plus many more (even Hollywood child star Macaulay Culkin). Dot to Dot organiser Anton Lockwood says: “We are really proud of our record of giving fresh young artists one of their first chances to prove themselves to a festival crowd. “Who of this year’s line-up will make the leap to super-stardom? We can’t be sure, but we do know the festival features a number of exciting and diverse new artists; Dot to Dot is your chance to see them now before the arena stage beckons.” The Bristol Acoustic Music Festival has certainly come a long way since it started 11 years ago. After a decade of being staged at the Folk House and then St George’s Bristol, the increasing popularity of the event has meant this year’s festival has been moved to the more accommodating Colston Hall for the first time, with a line-up of local and national artists complemented by workshops and a market. Sunday’s line-up sees a welcome return for Bristol singer Beth Rowley, as well as Bath-based folk heroes Stackridge, but the inclusion of crowd-pulling national acts such as Thea Gilmore, Richard Digance, Roving Crows and The Voice’s Christina Marie shows just now much this local event has grown over the past decade. Organiser Steve Parkhouse says: “Because it is a bigger, more well-known venue, we decided to add a few national acts to the line-up and maybe attract a few people to come along from outside Bristol. “Thea Gilmore, Richard Digance and The Roving Crows are a few of the well-established national acts people who can see this year, alongside great local acts like Wolfhound, Funkinsteins and Cindy Stratton Band.” ■ VegFest, Lloyd’s Amphitheatre, Friday to Sunday, www.bristol.vegfest.co.uk.

EMMYLOU HARRIS AND DANIEL LANOIS COLSTON HALL

M Anglo-American collaboration. After producing the second album by Phantom Limb in 2012, Ford asked the English band’s Stew Jackson to return the favour. In sessions at Rockfield studios in Wales and the Shed in Bath, with his fellow Limb members, he helped Ford create this new career landmark. Ford’s wife Kirsten contributes vocals, and his son Elijah, who’s been working with Jackson on his own album project, adds guitars.

ulti-award-winning singer songwriter Emmylou Harris was discovered while performing in a Washington DC coffeehouse by former Byrds member Chris Hillman, who recommended her to Gram Parsons for his first solo album, GP. After touring with Parsons’ band, the two recorded an album together entitled Grievous Angel, before Parsons’ untimely death in 1973. Harris’ musical response to his death was Boulder to Birmingham, which has become one of her best-loved songs and a country classic. Over her 40-year career, Harris has garnered a whopping 13 Grammy Awards and worked with such legendary artists as Dolly Parton, Roy Orbison, The Band, Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, and Neil Young, to name but a few. A rare UK appearance from a true country icon.

he kora (or West African harp-lute) is one of the most beautiful-sounding instruments ever created. Malian musician Toumani Diabate is its leading exponent and presiding genius, whose solo recordings, such as the divine Mande Variations, have made him an international virtuoso comparable to the biggest names in western-classical music.

This very rare performance marks the first time father and son have appeared together in the UK outside a Royal Festival Hall concert in London last year. Toumani performed at St George’s several years ago, in a sold-out show that people still talk about. This show is sure to create as much interest.

Clubbing LOVE SAVES THE DAY CASTLE PARK

B

ack for its third outing this weekend, Love Saves the Day is the Bristol dance music festival to beat. As in 2013, Saturday tickets sold out well in advance, and at time of writing there were only a few hundred left for Sunday. Love Saves the Day is the brainchild of Team Love, the driving force behind Glastonbury’s Wow Stage and street art event See No Evil. They’re also half of the team behind Bristol’s staggeringly successful In:Motion series. Saturday’s line-up is aimed squarely at clubbers with a headline slot from Annie Mac and main stage support from Eats Everything, Hercules and Love Affair and Cyril Hahn. Other Saturday highlights include Todd Terje, Nina Kraviz, Subb-Ann and Fabric main man

Craig Richards. Sunday’s line-up has a broader appeal with sets from Sbtrkt, Jamie XX, Neneh Cherry and The Streets’ Mike Skinner alongside underground heavyweights Pinch and Sherwood, Shy FX, Congo Natty and Chicago footwork pioneers DJ Spinn and Taso. It’s not just about Castle Park, though, with both days offering a choice of after-parties under the name Love Saves the Night. The sessions, at Lakota, Motion, The Blue Mountain and Bristol County Sports Club, are stuffed with big names, from living legends like Derrick Carter and Luke Vibert to contemporary tastemakers Logan Sama and Eton Messy. ■ Saturday, May 24 and Sunday, May 26, www.lovesavestheday.org.

Classical ORCHESTRA OF THE AGE OF ENLIGHTENMENT ST GEORGE’S BRISTOL

ou’d expect classy Corelli or breathtaking Bach from the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. It goes with the territory of being one of the most accomplished period instrument ensembles in the business. But it’s also one of the most go-ahead, too. The OAE’s Night Shift concerts spread the word in pubs, clubs and Shoreditch’s uber-cool Village Underground, but it’s just as happy being the house band whenever Glyndebourne takes a shine to the 18th century, and the orchestra’s repertoire daringly fastforwards to Mahler, Wagner and Debussy. Beyond as well. As part of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad it commissioned something new from Sally Beamish and the result – Spinal

Chords – gets a fresh outing bookended by Corelli and Handel, Bach’s sinewy A minor Violin Concerto, and Eastertide Vivaldi. Beamish’ piece weaves a string ensemble around a text by Times journalist Melanie Reid in which she ponders the consequences of a riding accident that left her unable to move her limbs – a reflection laced with wit as well as despair, acceptance and optimism. Juliet Stevenson narrated the world premiere and returns to deliver the words in an evening directed from the leader’s desk by violinist (and soloist in the Bach) Matthew Truscott, pictured. An Olympic legacy with heart – and hope. ■ Friday, May 23. See listings for details

Time travelling to save the world

P

ast and present collide in a hazy blur in a muscular sequel which ushers Bryan Singer back into the director’s chair for the first time since X-Men 2 in 2003. Familiar faces and new additions to the mutant fold jostle for attention in Simon Kinberg’s script, which indulges in a spot of time travel to strengthen ties between the X-Men and Wolverine franchises. Days Of Future Past delivers on the eye-popping spectacle including a breathtaking slow-motion action sequence in which a mutant (Evan Peters), who can move at superhuman speeds, diverts the trajectory of bullets before they reach the intended targets. There is plenty of soul-searching, too, for the characters, who must make personal sacrifices for the greater good if the mutant race is to survive a sustained assault by hulking robotic hunters. In a dystopian 2023, Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and his kin including Magneto (Ian McKellen), Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Storm (Halle Berry) and Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) stand on the precipice of extinction. The Sentinel programme, conceived by scientist Dr Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage), has almost wiped out the mutant population and any human sympathisers using an army of highly skilled automatons attuned to mutant

DNA. It’s only a matter of time before the Sentinels track Xavier and the surviving mutants to a mountaintop temple in China and complete the extermination. One glimmer of hope remains: if Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) can harness her abilities and propel Wolverine’s consciousness back to 1973, they might be able to stop alluring shape-shifter Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) from assassinating Trask. This is the pivotal event, which lights the fuse on the Sentinel programme under the administration of President Nixon (Mark Camacho). While Xavier and co prepare to fight the Sentinels, Wolverine’s consciousness slips back to flare-trousered 1973 where he seeks out young Professor X (James McAvoy), Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender). Professor X agrees to divert Mystique from her ill-fated path but the best-laid plans of mice and mutants often go astray and vengeful Magneto senses an opportunity to change the course of history in favour of the superpowered minority. X-Men: Days Of Future Past is a solid and highly enjoyable chapter that doesn’t get too bogged down in bamboozling science, letting protagonists do the talking with their claws and amazing abilities. A tantalising end credits teaser hints at what fans can expect from X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST (12A, 131 mins) Starring Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Ellen Page and Halle Berry.

VERDICT The blitzkrieg of slick digital effects melds seamlessly with live action elements in this breathtaking instalment of the ever-popular franchise.

Insipid songs for a film lacking fun and magic

A

LEGENDS OF OZ: DOROTHY’S RETURN (U, 88 mins) Featuring the voices of Lea Michele, Dan Aykroyd, Kelsey Grammer, Jim Belushi and Patrick Stewart.

VERDICT Directors Finn and St Pierre competently bolt together action sequences and musical numbers but there’s no discernible brio or imagination.

Score ★★✩✩✩ 44 S E E I T ● ● ● ● ●

t the end of the classic 1939 musical The Wizard Of Oz, based on a novel by L Frank Baum, Dorothy Gale clicks the heels of her ruby slippers three times and chants, “There’s no place like home”, in order to return to sepia-toned Kansas. At the time, cinema audiences didn’t fall completely under the spell of Victor Fleming’s ambitious and costly fantasy but decades of television repeats have elevated the adventures of Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion in our affections. A jolly jaunt up the Yellow Brick Road has become an annual ritual for many families, especially at Christmas, when grown men choke back tears of happiness as Judy Garland trills the Oscar-winning song Over The Rainbow. Various spin-off TV series and films, and adaptations of Baum’s myriad sequels to The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz, have failed to recapture the magic and sense of wonder of Fleming’s version. Legends Of Oz: Dorothy’s Return joins that far from illustrious list. Co-directed by Will Finn and Daniel St Pierre, this computer-animated musical is a direct sequel to the 1939 film, returning the plucky heroine and her pooch Toto to the enchanted realm in order to thwart a megalomaniacal new villain. Dorothy Gale (voiced by Lea Michele) wakes in Kansas. A giant tornado has devastated the local community and Aunt Em (Tacey Adams)

from Friday, May 23, 2014

and Uncle Henry (Michael Krawic) are reluctantly preparing to move on rather than rebuild. Back in Oz, where time unfolds much quicker than in our world, The Jester (Martin Short), devious brother of the Wicked Witch of the West, is upholding villainous family values by attempting to enslave the entire kingdom. Scarecrow (Dan Aykroyd), Tin Man (Kelsey Grammer) and Cowardly Lion (Jim Belushi) summon Dorothy back to Oz using a rainbow mover in order to spearhead a rebellion. The heroine journeys towards the Emerald City in the company of new friends including Wiser The Owl (Oliver Platt), Tugg the Treeboat (Patrick Stewart), dashing soldier Marshal Mallow (Hugh Dancy) and the China Doll Princess (Megan Hilty), who takes one look at Dorothy and quips, “So this is the little girl who vanquishes witches? I thought she’d be taller.” Legends Of Oz: Dorothy’s Return is neither fun-filled nor magical, punctuating the heroine’s odyssey with songs composed by Academy Award-nominated singer/songwriter Bryan Adams, which run the gamut of insipid empowerment ballads and up-tempo calls to arms. Michele is a chirpy yet bland central character and supporting vocal performances are similarly forgettable. Animation, meanwhile, harks from a bygone era when humans were doll-like figures with a strange sheen and large eyes. There’s still no place like the 1939 film.

fashion. Leaping on to The Bristol Hippodrome stage for five days from Tuesday, May 27, Fame will take audiences on a high-octane rollercoaster ride through the dizzy heights and crashing lows of a group of star-struck wannabes embarking on their quest for fame. Set in 2014 at the world-famous High School

from Friday, May 23, 2014

for Performing Arts in New York, young talented hopefuls undertake the journey of their lives. Ambition, triumph, heartbreak and romance conspire to steer them off course, and the pressure is too much for some. But these kids are determined to live forever and achieve their ultimate goal: fame. Bursting with jaw-dropping dance routines


and unforgettable songs that have been re-envisioned for 2014, Fame – The Musical is a show for a new generation. Award-winning director/choreographer Gary Lloyd, whose credits include Thriller Live and 20th Century Boy, was tasked with breathing new life into the famous musical. When producer Bill Kenwright asked him to revive Fame for a UK tour, he had only one proviso: “That I could bring it into the 21st century.” Gary felt the show needed a facelift and different musical treatment if it was to be produced again. “It needed updating, but it’s not that we’ve remixed the whole thing,” he explains. “Some of the songs have been stripped back to make them more intimate and tell the story

a bit more, so it’s a re-orchestration rather than a remix.” A young, energetic cast fresh from drama school was essential for the update, which features stunning contemporary, ballet, flamenco, tap and street numbers. “I wanted to cast ‘quadruple threats’ in this,” says Gary, “not only do they have to sing, dance and act, they need to play instruments as well. “The acting is very strong. We’re telling the story, not just stringing a story together with song-and-dance numbers.” Revisiting the gritty story was another reason for the update. For the past 15 years, the essence of Fame had been somewhat lost in the whirlwind of neon leotards and high kicking. “The issues are a little more understood in

this country than they were when Fame first came out in 1980,” says Gary. “Now we’re dealing with issues like learning disabilities and drugs. There’s a broader understanding. “It feels the time is right to do this kind of production with the show.” Renowned for its Eighties vibe, bringing Fame into the 21st century was a risky business and Gary worked hard not to alienate the original fans, of which he’s one. “The movie came out when I was nine and it inspired me. There was nothing else like it until Michael Jackson. “We’re updating it for a new generation that, hopefully, can be inspired in the same way.” ■ Tuesday, May 27 to Saturday, May 31.

Theatre Don’t miss THE (FULL ENGLISH) BREAKFAST CLUB THE BIERKELLER THEATRE

T

Premiered at the Royal Court in 1994, Jeffreys’ incisive critique of an age of excess employs all the wit, flair and bawdiness of a Restoration comedy. The script found another life as a 2004 screenplay, largely thanks to the support of John Malkovich. Having performed the role of Rochester with his legendary Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago, Malkovich was so taken with the story that he optioned the script for his production company, courting Johnny Depp to play the notorious Rochester with Malkovich taking the role of King Charles II.

he (Full English) Breakfast Club is an all-English adaptation of John Hughes’ darkly comic and beautifully poignant tale of teenage angst – interspersed with some cracking Eighties tunes! Five teenagers are thrown together in Saturday detention – a basket case, a jock, a nerd, a criminal and a princess – all of whom think they have nothing in common with each other. Before the day is out they will bare their souls, get stoned, laugh and cry with each other and find out that they are fundamentally connected in a way they never knew. The seminal teen comedy/drama has been adapted, produced and directed by Lisa Hamilton-James and stars the young members of ITV WEST Television Workshop. Lisa explains: ���I have taken the very American dialogue, references and characters and moved them to a British comprehensive school. “The film was a total eye-opener for any teenager in the Eighties as it showed you that you were not alone. That’s what I have tried to retain more than anything else.”

THE LIBERTINE BRISTOL OLD VIC THEATRE

L

ondon in the 1670s – Charles II is on the throne, Nell Gwynn is in his bed and the theatre and sexual promiscuity are flourishing. Citizens Theatre Artistic Director Dominic Hill brings his acclaimed new production of Stephen Jeffreys’ raunchy and bawdy historical drama The Libertine to Bristol Old Vic this month. Jeffreys’ play tells the true story of John Wilmot, the second Earl of Rochester and a hedonistic poet, courtier, playwright and rake, whose appetite for women and wine has made him a notorious figure in 1670s London and the court of King Charles II. His need to exceed every limit leads to a spectacular fall from favour, from which neither his charisma nor true love can save him.

The company returns to Tobacco Factory Theatres next week after last year’s successful show, Napoleon: A Defence, with their utterly daft, internationally acclaimed show, Extravaganza. Le Navet Bete’s Alex White said: “It’s great to be performing in Bristol again. It’s such a vibrant and supportive community both within the arts scene and outside.” Ali Robertson, director of Tobacco Factory Theatres added: “Extravaganza was a night of brilliant pandemonium when I saw it in Exeter.” ■ Tuesday, May 27 to Saturday, May 31.

Get up close and personal with Wallace and Gromit PICK OF THE WEEK Wallace & Gromit: From the Drawing Board, M shed, Bristol

A

s you’ll remember, last summer was a big one for lovers of Wallace and Gromit, Bristol’s most famous animated exports. The hugely successful Gromit Unleashed public art project saw 80 giant fibreglass sculptures of Aardman’s much-loved clever canine – each one designed and created by invited artists – released on to the streets of Bristol. Artists who customised their own Gromit included Axel Scheffler (The Gruffalo), Aardman duo Nick Park and Peter Lord, iconic designers Sir Paul Smith and Cath Kidston, and children’s author and illustrator Sir Quentin Blake. And the good news for Aardman admirers from Bristol and beyond is that there’s more fun in store this summer from the adventurous duo. On the 25th anniversary of their very first film release (1989’s A Grand Day Out), a cracking new exhibition at M shed invites visitors to immerse themselves in the storymaking processes behind Aardman Animations’ award-winning Wallace & Gromit films. Visitors will be able to wander through a life-size W&G-style home developed especially for M shed by Aardman and fellow Bristol animators Cod Steaks. Once inside, they’ll learn all about how the duo’s inimitable storylines are created, what inspires their Bristol creators – and how the plucky twosome have developed over time. Among the exhibition highlights, visitors can marvel at instantly recognisable film sets, and see the notebook where W&G creator Nick Park records his thoughts, insights and designs. The rocket used for the duo’s journey to the moon in A Grand Day Out will be on show, as will several story boards from the Wallace and Gromit back catalogue. Other production artefacts on display will include film archive, models, and a selection of objects from the Aardman archive that have never before been shown to the general public. Visitors of all ages will be able to scribble and sketch stories in the dining room of the house, as well as searching for quirky objects and contraptions from M shed’s own collections that could easily have come from Wallace & Gromit’s make-believe world. There is also a rare opportunity to see a real Oscar award (like those won by Aardman for Creature Comforts, The Wrong Trousers and A Close Shave), and to have your photo taken next to the daring duo themselves. Throughout the exhibition, visitors will be encouraged to think about how stories are created – through characters, setting and plot – and, if suitably inspired, to make and draw

their own stories to share with family and friends. “We are thrilled to be working with Aardman Animations once again,” says Vivienne Bennett, interim head of Bristol Museums, Galleries & Archives. “The exhibition will open up the world of Wallace and Gromit to our visitors, and give them a behind-the-scenes look at the animation process. We are confident that the show will appeal to all visitors of all ages and spark their own creativity. “I believe the undoubted charm of this internationally recognised brand will attract

many tourists to M shed and to Bristol.” “Having a Wallace & Gromit exhibition in Bristol this summer will be really special for Aardman,” adds Aardman’s Nick Park, the duo’s creator. “It will be great to share some of the amazing behind-the-scenes artwork that our crew produce. Many of the items that will go on show haven’t made it out of our archives for a very long time – I can’t wait to see them again myself.” ■ Saturday, May 24 to Sunday, September 7.

nature, flora and plant forms. Barbara Rae’s textured silkscreen prints, meanwhile, are inspired by Achill Island, off the coast of County Mayo in western Ireland – explosive, exuberant semi-abstract compositions that explore our impact on and perception of the world around us.

■ The latest exhibition at Gloucester Road’s thriving community art space Room 212 celebrates the gallery’s hyper-local roots and structure. All the artist exhibitors at Room 212 live locally and help to run the shop: neighbouring traders also exhibit art works. Many of the artists also exhibit in one or more of the thriving neighbourhood art trails based round about, including North Bristol Artists (November), West Bristol Art Trail (October) and the fledgling Westbury Park Art Trail (coming up on the weekend of June 6-7). This show will feature paintings and prints of local scenes (such as this delightful scene by Hannah Broadway, pictured), plus Room 212’s own range of mugs, coasters, cushions and lampshades, printed locally and using images by gallery regulars.

■ Friday, May 23 to Monday, June 30. See listings for details.

FULL COLOUR INNOCENT FINE ART ■ As spring turns to summer, Innocent Fine Art gives over its walls to a selection of recent works by two major contemporary British artists, united by their love of brilliant colours. Bruce McLean’s limited edition silkscreen prints are finished with hand painting and collage elements that give them texture, tactility and depth. Vibrant and uplifting, McLean’s canvasses (‘Tall Dutch Tulips’, pictured) are colourful, dynamic explorations of

NEAT STUDIO THE ISLAND ■ This group show features work by photographers using the studios and developing facilities based in the converted prison cells at Bridewell Island, who specialise in traditional and alternative photography techniques. “As artists we all have different approaches to our work – but what brings us together is our love for traditional photography processes,” explains Studio member Faye Joines (whose photograph, pictured, shows fans watching last year’s GAA Hurling final between Dublin and Galway). “This doesn't mean that theimagesyouwillseearethemselvesareold-fashioned – just the ways in which they are created! “We hope to be able to entertain and educate the public with the various techniques we use. There will be examples of chlorophyll prints, pinhole landscapes and experimental black and white printing – all labours of love in these digital times. “We are really looking forward to being able to showcase the work at The Island. It is one of the very few places in Bristol with darkroom facilities – without which we would struggle to create the work we do.” ■ Monday, May 26 to Friday, June 6. See listings for details.

Spend some time with charismatic ex-prostitute

PICK OF THE WEEK Jongleurs Comedy Club

T

his weekend’s top Jongleurs line-up features a set from David Ward, an upbeat comic with a nice cynical edge to him; and Jeff Leach, pictured, who has performed sold-out shows at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2011 and 2012 – but has also worked as a male prostitute (Male Hookers Uncovered, Current TV) and explored his sex addiction on Confessions Of A Sex Addict (BBC3). “Charismatic and charming… pretty darned impressive,” enthused reviews site chortle.co.uk. They’re joined by the charming, selfdeprecating Jimmy McGhie, who’s appeared on Russell Howard’s Good News, as well as co-presenting the Dave Gorman radio show on Absolute Radio; and Nathan Caton, a former Chortle Student Comic of the Year with a likeable, streetwise delivery and engaging insights on life in the modern urban jungle. In short, you’re in for an evening of eclectic but reliably top-drawer comedy. ■ Friday, May 23 and Saturday, May 24, Unit 2, Building 11, Canons Way, Harbourside, Bristol. See listings for details.

EDINBURGH COMEDY PREVIEWS WARDROBE THEATRE ■ This is the first of a string of Edinburgh preview evenings, continuing through June and July at the Wardrobe Theatre. An impressive line-up of circuit comics will visit the cosy theatre, above the White Bear pub in Kingsdown, to try out the new material that they’ll be taking to this summer’s Fringe. Tonight’s comics are Alfie Brown, an emerging comedian with a genuinely smart take on modern culture’s more nonsensical moments; and Max Dickins, pictured, twice Chortle Student Comic of the Year finalist and a hugely confident performer with an impressive arsenal of surreal, nonsensical gags in the Milton Jones vein. Dickins is currently embarked on a self-styled Groupon Adventure, in which he tries a new activity each week from the offers site Groupon and blogs about it: arising from this, Dickins has been receiving a slew of weird challenges from fans, which recently included turning out one Saturday as Bristol Rugby’s mascot Brizzley Bear. Never a dull moment, in short, and we’re confident his stage set will follow the same rules.

FREDDIE AND THE FAIRY JULIA DONALDSON

‘Hitler could not be allowed to win’ BOOK OF THE WEEK: The Last British Dambuster by George Johnny Johnson

O

n May 16, 1943, a daring raid was launched by the RAF against Germany’s war machine. Now one of the last surviving members of the squadron that carried it out has told his story. George “Johnny” Johnson is 92 and lives in Bristol. On that historic day back in 1943 he, along with 132 speciallyselectedcomrades,took off from Scampton Airbase in Lincolnshire. They had trained for six weeks to fulfil one mission that to many seemed at best foolhardy and at worst impossible. They were to destroy three dams within Germany’s Ruhr Valley, crippling Hitler’s production line in the process. It was a daring mission but against all the odds, Johnny and his crew survived. Sadly, 53 of the men who left British shores that night never came back. In this new book, Johnny relives every moment of that night and the devastating aftermath. With unique wit and keen insight he recalls the difficult training schedule, which was conducted in complete secrecy, the race against time to release the bombs and the sheer bravery of a small unit who were not only up against German’s air defences but also the uncertainty over whether they could succeed or not. Embodying a whole squadron, who left a lasting legacy for generations to come after them, his story is compelling, and his brutal honesty refreshing. “I was anxious to fight,” he recalls. “Hitler was the b*stard who had started all this and he needed sorting out.

58 S E E I T ● ● ● ● ●

“We were under threat. Everything we stood for; our country, our families and our way of life were being attacked by this maniac. “He could not be allowed to win, so for me and many, many others like me, there was no alternative. “We were in a pickle and something had to be done.” Born in Lincolnshire in 1921, Johnny moved to Bristol following the death of his much-loved wife, who he adored for 60 years. He still lives here, supported by an extended family of three children, eight grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. He is the last surviving British Dambuster, the other two members of the famous 617 Squadron are a Canadian and a New Zealander. ■ The Last British Dambuster is published by Ebury Press, £17.99.

from Friday, May 23, 2014

■ From the author of The Gruffalo this an equally charming tale, one that the whole family will enjoy to the very last laugh. This magical story focuses on Freddie, a young boy whose wish to own a pet is thwarted by a sweet fairy named Bessie-Bell. Although Bessie-Bell is kind, she is also hard of hearing – and Freddie mumbles. Freddie blames Bessie-Bell for all of their misunderstandings until the Fairy Queen intervenes. In an interview in 2010, Julia Donaldson admitted that both the plot of the book and the character of Bessie-Bell were “partly inspired because I’m a bit deaf in my left ear”. This week is Deaf Awareness Week (May 1925). ■ Published by Macmillan, £5.99.

THE SKIN COLLECTOR JEFFERY DEAVER ■ The Skin Collector has been a long time coming for loyal fans of prolific crime author Jeffery Deaver. Some 17 years after 1997’s The Bone Collector, which was adapted into a film starring Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie, comes its long-awaited semisequel, featuring Deaver’s most loved character, quadriplegic consultant forensic detective Lincoln Rhyme. The 11th book in the series, which also features NYPD officers Amelia Sachs, Lon Sellitto and Ron Pulaski, sees the team tackle the case of a serial killer terrorising New York, who picks victims at random from dark alleyways, secluded passages and dank basements. Chillingly methodical, the murderer – who has learnt to cover up his tracks from Lincoln’s book – kills by injecting lethal poison into targets, in the form of elaborate tattoos, and it is up to Lincoln and his cohorts to decipher these messages and designs, and untangle the twisted web of clues as the clock ticks. ■ Published by Hodder & Stoughton, £18.99 hardback (eBook £6.99).

WEEKEND 59


Property of the week

Brimming with character plus plenty of outside space

A

third of an acre of well-tended garden surrounds Cobblestones Cottage, while beyond is open countryside. But that’s not to say you’ll feel isolated, since this property is within easy striking distance of the M5 and the lovely market town of Thornbury, which has a plethora of independent shops and restaurants. Built in about 1700, the property has everything country folk could want, including two full-size wooden stables and a tack room, other stores for garden tools, coal and logs, open fireplaces and a multi-fuel burner that’s sure to make the “snug” a very cosy place indeed. The burner is set in a floor-to-ceiling stone chimney breast, with an inset wooden beam along which the present owner has hung horse brasses. Like much of the rest of the house, this room is painted cream with a pale beige carpet.

60 S E E I T ● ● ● ● ●

Both the lounge and the dining room have open grates in stone fireplaces, while the kitchen, which is big enough for a table and chairs, has wooden cupboards and space for a dishwasher, with facilities in the laundry room for a washing machine and a large fridge/ freezer. A walk-in wardrobe and an en suite shower room come with the master bedroom, and there’s further built-in storage in the second of the four bedrooms. The bathroom, meanwhile, has a separate bath and shower. At the front of the house is a gravelled area with shrubs and elsewhere are lawns, a coal store and patio. The property also has a dual fuel heating system, decent UPVC double glazing, a large detached double garage, with an adjoining wood store, and off-street parking for at least four vehicles.

Create a garden for your senses Gardening Bristol garden designer, Sue Oakey, explains how to create a garden that appeals to our senses of smell, touch, taste, sight and sound

T

he garden is a wondrous thing, containing all manner of sights, smells, textures, tastes and sounds. But we seldom take the time to think about the sensory aspects of our favourite outdoor space. By looking at what the garden offers our five senses, we can gain a better understanding of how to make the garden work for us. Firstly, sight. Colour is probably the first thing we notice in the garden. Colour can affect our mood, so a bright palette of oranges, reds and yellows creates energy, while blues, mauves and whites will calm even the most agitated mind. Green is a restful colour: a large expanse of lawn or borders of mixed green shrubs will allow the eye to rest. Colour can also expand the size of the garden: by placing bold, bright colours in the foreground, and paler colours in the background, the space seems to recede into the distance. Useful plants for bright colour schemes are sunflowers, dark-leaved dahlias and the exploding firework of allium christophii. While, for a calming effect, choose white cosmos, blue scabious and blue-grey Russian sage. And don’t forget a selection of insect-friendly plants: butterflies will be attracted to the bright blues of buddleia, and bees will go for the yellow stamens of pasque flower or rosa gallica. Next, taste. Plants including herbs and edible flowers offer a variety of taste experiences. There is the fresh, sharp taste of mint, ideal to add to summer drinks, or to make a refreshing tea. Pickled nasturtium seeds can be used instead of capers and added to fish dishes, while tiny alpine strawberries are delicious mixed into a fresh fruit salad. A herb garden is a treasury of taste. If space is limited, use a recycled butler’s sink, or a couple of hanging baskets. Alongside the traditional parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme, try growing some more unusual herbs, such as sorrel, lovage, caraway, chervil and tarragon. Edible flowers have become very fashionable, so allow yourself some floral flummery by growing violas, calendula, cornflowers and

borage. Crystallised viola flowers can be used to decorate cakes, while blue borage brightens a glass of summer Pimms. Sound is one of the senses often underrated in a garden. If you live as I do in a suburban jungle, sound can be used to minimise the noise of city living. A small water feature, such as a solar-powered fountain in a pond, or a bubbling pebble-filled pot can do much to mask unwanted noise. Bamboos, with their tall rustling stems, or grasses such as miscanthus or quaking grass provide an attractive visual feature, as well as a restful sound. Broad-leaved trees, for example beech, maple and lime will produce a crunchy autumn carpet. Touch is probably the sense we have developed least in the garden, with the advent of all manner of automatic machinery, and the fear engendered by health and safety of getting our hands dirty. If you are brave enough to discard your gardening gloves, try feeling the soft, woolly surface of stachys lanata, or verbascum. Or run your fingers over a sempervivum, or the spiky spines of echinops. Tree bark can also be a rich source of texture. The smooth peelings of the paper bark maple and the Tibetan cherry invite you to stroke them, while the rough bark

of the native silver birch provides a strong textural contrast. From the crunch of stepping on to a gravel path, feeling the smooth roundness of large pebbles, or stepping barefoot on to the soft, yielding surface of a mown lawn, there are many unexpected tactile elements to the garden. Finally, to smell. Think of the earthy scent when you step out into the garden after a spring shower, or the all-pervading perfume of a favourite climbing rose. The sweet scent of chocolate cosmos, rose-scented geranium and the burnt sugar scent of cercidiphyllum in autumn, through the spicy tang of lemon balm or prostanthera, are a delight. So, next time you step out into your garden, take a moment to appreciate all its sensory offerings and learn to love it even more.

Dark and mysterious thriller THE AMERICAN MAY 24, FILM4, 9PM ■ George Clooney stars as an assassin in this gritty thriller. After an assignment in Sweden nearly goes wrong, professional assassin Jack flees to the Italian countryside to lie low. He starts to consider retirement, but must complete one last job. George brings his taciturn charisma to bear on the central role, which is probably just as well since there is little snappy dialogue and action highlights of more traditional espionage fare. Instead, he focuses on the philosophical dilemmas of a professional killer.

CORONATION STREET ITV

QUIRKE MAY 25, BBC1, 9PM

G

abriel Byrne may have lived in the States for some time, but when he was offered the chance to return to Dublin for this new series, he jumped at it – and it’s little wonder. Based on John Banville’s thrillers, the Beeb has snapped it up, in a major Anglo-Irish co-production. If you like your thrillers dark and mysterious, it won’t disappoint. Quirke opens in the late autumn of 1956, where a hungover city pathologist known only as Quirke (we never get to know his Christian name) stumbles from a late-night party in the nurses’ quarters. He hopes to sleep in his subterranean pathology lab. However, his adoptive brother, obstetric consultant Malachy Griffin, is at our hero’s desk

65 S E E I T ● ● ● ● ●

completing paperwork for Christine Falls, a recently deceased patient. When Quirke returns the following morning, Christine’s body is gone and the medical expert is curious about his brother’s strange behaviour. Further investigation suggests Mal was the father of Christine’s child, and he believes the youngster has been spirited away to America under the wing of the Catholic Church. Quirke follows the trail to Boston, accompanying Mal’s daughter – Quirke’s niece, Phoebe – on a last visit to her ailing grandfather. He eventually uncovers the truth about a family secret that has remained buried for nearly two decades.

from Friday, May 23, 2014

■ It’s set to be a dramatic week for Tina – and it begins with her incurring Rita’s wrath by telling her about her fling with Peter. When Carla drags her reluctant husband to Tracy’s engagement party, he is desperate to talk to Tina. Then Mrs Barlow lets slip that she’s pregnant, just as Ms McIntyre walks in. In the first Corrie whodunit for a while, Tina is later attacked and left for dead. And the locals barely have time to come to terms with news of Peter’s affair, before they are left reeling from the discovery of the barmaid’s motionless body.

GOODNESS GRACIOUS ME SPECIAL 2014 MAY 26 BBC2, 10PM ■ When the BBC has something to celebrate, it doesn’t usually do it by halves, so chances are that you’ll have heard it’s celebrating its 50th anniversary of comedy and entertainment. To honour it’s big birthday, the cast of Goodness Gracious Me have reunited for a 30-minute special episode. Originally conceived, written and performed by British Asians, stars Sanjeev Bhasker, Meera Syal, Kulvinder Ghir and Nina Wadia won over the nation by poking fun at various stereotypes.
