Tom Allen: The smartest comedian on the circuit? Absolutely!

Tom Allen’s unique style of sharp, acerbic wit and camp, riotous storytelling has seen him sell out shows all over the country. Due to phenomenal demand his 'Absolutely' tour has now been extended and you can see him at The Red House Theatre, Plymouth on November 11th. Here, Tom talks to Craig Maplesden about his career, supporting the likes of Michael McIntyre and Sarah Millican as well as his choice in attire Hi Tom, many thanks for taking the time ou to chat to us. You’ve just started your new 34 date ‘Absolutely' Tour which comes to The Red House Theatre, Plymouth on Nov 11, tell us about what audiences can expect from the show?

Well actually I’ve been on this tour since last year so it’s actually a 150 date tour but I am over the moon that it keeps getting extended and this has meant I get to come to Plymouth! It’s a show about me trying to be fabulous but still having to live with my parents. It’s about the pressures of modern living but it also covers getting invited to a hen party, experiencing road rage and a mis adventure on a water slide.

I’ve always really liked wearing suits since I was a kid. Which I think my parents always found kind of strange. Wearing a dinner jacket to the supermarket isn’t always welcomed in Bromley when you’re 9.

I understand that you started your stand-up career at the age of 22. Was this always the dream or did you have alternative aspirations when you were younger? I used to think I wanted to be an actor but I didn’t like having to wait around for someone to ask you to be in something. I guess I’ve always really loved telling stories and I love it when someone has a good anecdote. But when I was growing up it felt like stand up was full of straight men in smokey bars and I thought I wouldn’t fit in with that. But thanks to role models like Victoria Wood and Jo Brand and Alan Carr it felt like that started to change. You made your breakthrough winning ‘So You Think Your Funny’ in Edinburgh and the BBC New Comedy Awards. Did you need any convincing to put yourself forward for these competitions?

Yes absolutely. I didn’t think I was a stand up I just talked a lot and told stories and said what I thought was funny. I wasn’t telling one liner jokes or whatever. But I’ve learnt that if you can connect with people and make them laugh that’s all that matters really. You’ve supported the likes of Michael McIntyre, Sarah Millican and Romesh Ranganathan to name a few. This has taken you all over the world. How do audiences differ in different countries and do you have to tailor your shows at all? My tailor is the same for all of my shows. Is that what you meant? Oh I see - sorry - no I think it’s important to talk sincerely about how you see the world from your shoes. If you tailor it to different audiences then I’d say there’s a risk that you don’t offer anything from yourself.

14 woinplymouth

You are the best dressed comic on the circuit. How many suits do you own and was the look created or do you prefer more formal attire? Well that’s a very kind thing to say. I’ve always really liked wearing suits since I was a kid. Which I think my parents always found kind of strange. Wearing a dinner jacket to the supermarket isn’t always welcomed in Bromley when you’re 9. I think in a way it’s a form of drag. I always want to seem like I’m a grown up. So I wear grown up clothes. I own about 15 suits. I’ve always been inspired by clothes from the 1920s and 30s I think because I watched a lot of black and white films growing up. I was an unusual child. As a teenager, you were the youngest member of the Noel Coward Society. Have you modelled yourself a little on him? Well I think as a creative person he managed to step outside of the norm and sum up a version of the world at the time. I guess that’s what a lot of creative people want to do. I admire that he had such a distinct style and worked hard all the time. A life lived to the full - wouldn’t that be something? How are you taking to touring, have you found out anything interesting about yourself? Oh certainly! I’ve found out that some motorway service stations are better than others. That one in Gloucester, Oh my goodness it’s like some sort of paradise. I still think about their chocolate and oat cookies. If you could ‘style' a fellow comedian, who would it be an why? I wouldn’t dream of changing anyone. They are who they are - that’s what style is.

Now in its second year at Royal William Yard, and as part of the wider Mayflower 400 programme, the festival aims to grow and will open and close the Mayflower 400 commemorations during Thanksgiving in 2019 and 2020. Claire Honey, Project Manager, said: “Last year’s festival was an amazing spectacle, enjoyed by more than 5,000 people over three days. We are really excited to welcome new artists, creating unique, awe-inspiring experiences that will delight both adults and children.” New for 2018, the festival will add a fourth day for even more festival fun, running from Thursday 22nd to Sunday 25th November. Illuminate will also host a number of engaging artist-led workshops in the run up to the event, for children to get involved with the celebrations. Illuminate offers various opportunities for families and children to take part in interactive activities or simply to wonder at the incredible illuminations lighting up the Yard. The event will see installations by local and international artists.

Local artists include University of Plymouth alumni Paige Alexander, 1000 Errors and Jamie Knight. Two international artists invited to showcase their work at the festival are Xavi Bové and Thomas Voillaume. Spanish artist Xavi Bové’s piece, Visual Songs, is an interactive installation which aims to create a link between songs and their visual representation. His work allows families and children to dance to music, creating their own piece of art with their movements. Each visitor has a personalised experienced and can have their very own print out of their creation to take home.

Alongside the amazing installations, Illuminate is working with YOKE The Salon to provide neon hair braids and face art throughout the event. Enjoy performance, art installations and spectacular illuminations whilst sporting your own Illuminate look! Illuminate is a free event, open to families and people of all ages, which will run from the 22nd to the 25th November, from 5.30 –10pm at Royal William Yard. Visitors will be able to enjoy a vast range of food and drink from the Yard’s fantastic resident eateries as well as food and drink stalls.

Le Navet Bete's Aladdin

Barbican Theatre are excited to offer Plymouth two festive treats this Christmas. An Evening with Krampus at Barbican Theatre 11 – 22 December 8pm (plus 3pm Fridays)

Tickets £14 (inclusive of all booking fees) For ages 16+ An Evening with Krampus is brand new cabaret style theatrical experience offering Plymouth ‘a darkly delicious festive treat’! Leave the kids at home and enjoy our alternative Christmas show featuring comedy, live music, storytelling and song.

This new show is being developed by Barbican Theatre and The Wheel. Both are committed to supporting emerging talent, so naturally An Evening With Krampus features some extraordinary emerging artists from the Plymouth area. Expect a bit of a spectacle, plenty of entertainment, and certainly a fair amount of mischief!

An Evening With Krampus is perfect for those looking for an alternative to the traditional Christmas show. Director Kevin Johnson says: “We are really looking forward to getting into the rehearsal room and delving into the Krampus myth. In Central European folklore, Krampus punishes children who have misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards the well-behaved with gifts. In our production we aim to fuse live music, song, cabaret and comedy to create an indulgent, seductive and joyful alternative Christmas treat for grown ups whether you have been naughty or nice this year!” Why not make a night of it and book at table at The B-Bar for some authentic Thai food. They also have a great cocktail bar and a range of local beers and ales. Book a table by calling 01752 242021. View their menu at www.b-bar.co.uk

what's on take special care to bring the quality and breadth of films, friendly atmosphere and grown-up cinema experience with them.” Plymouth Arts Centre’s 61-seat cinema in Looe Street enjoyed a record year in 2017, with nearly 18,000 admissions across 135 films. Its live event cinema, film festival, and regular talks by internationally renowned film makers such as director Ben Wheatley, and Oscar winners Roger Deakins and Mia Bays continue to build in popularity. Plymouth Arts Centre recently showcased yet another sell-out summer season of Open Air Cinema at iconic waterfront locations, Tinside Lido, Mount Edgcumbe and Royal William Yard and plans to continue to do so in the future. Tim Bolton, Vice Principal at Plymouth College of Art, said: “Plymouth College of Art shares many fundamental values with Plymouth Arts Centre and we have enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship spanning numerous years. We welcome this opportunity to continue to collaborate with them, to enrich the arts and cultural fabric of the South West. “We’re confident that the new, enhanced space will improve the viewing experience for cinema-goers, and hope that together our shared resources will enable Plymouth Arts Centre to continue their mission to bring independent cinema to the city.”

Plymouth Arts Centre is moving! After months of negotiations, Plymouth Arts Centre can announce that the future of our unique independent cinema is secure and will relocate to a new home and double in size. A new 118-seat auditorium with a state-of-the-art sound system is to be built in Plymouth College of Art and will open to the public on 10th January 2019. Chair of Plymouth Arts Centre's Board of Trustees and Principal of Plymouth College of Art, Andrew Brewerton, said: “Moving from the Looe Street address is emotional for many people, but the fact is that it is no longer fit for purpose. Audiences are the heart of Plymouth Arts Centre and the thing that drives it forward.

“We’re confident that the new, enhanced space will improve the viewing experience for cinema-goers, and hope that together our shared resources will enable Plymouth Arts Centre to continue their mission to bring independent cinema to the city.” “It will continue to be run by Plymouth Arts Centre’s Cinema programmer Anna Navas and the team from Plymouth Arts Centre, who will

“This will certainly benefit all students of Plymouth College of Art and neighbouring students at the University of Plymouth, and we also expect that our proximity to The Box, when it opens, will enable us to give whole new audiences access to the kinds of independent, arthouse cinema that Plymouth Arts Centre do so much to champion.” In recent years, Plymouth Arts Centre developed a national reputation as champions of gender equality in the film industry, as an early adopter of The F-Rating and Birds Eye View’s Reclaim the Frame. They have also taken the initiative in introducing younger audiences to independent cinema by launching a popular £4 ticket price for those aged 25 and under. But the withdrawal of the Art Council’s NPO funding for the Arts Centre in April 2018 put extreme pressure on all areas of the charity’s organisation. The new plans are the result of months of work by the Board of Trustees and partners to create a sustainable future for the organisation. The Board has taken the difficult decision to sell the Arts Centre’s Looe Street building. The resources are not in place to continue to deliver both the cinema and the visual arts programme, and given the current circumstances, the Trustees have reached an unavoidable and reluctant decision to halt the visual arts programme for the time being. PAC Home, the centre’s highly regarded network of artists and arts professionals, is developing plans to continue independently. The cinema will continue to operate at its current home in Looe Street until the beginning of December 2018.

Plymouth Arts Centre will be launching a major fundraising campaign to support the cinema. If you would like to donate or become a friend, visit www.plymouthartscentre.org/support-us for details.

Plymouth Introduces:

Land of the Giants

Launching December 14th, Pavilions Introduces is a new format supporting the grass roots local music scene. Headlined by Plymouth's very own Land Of The Giants, we speak to the band about the forthcoming gig, music awards and playing in front of a home crowd. It’s great to see you will be helping launch the new ‘Pavilions Introduces’ in December. How much are you looking forward to the gig and how important is it that a venue like the Pavilions supports the grass roots local music scene? So many venues have closed down recently including Maker which was the last grass roots music venue on the Rame Peninsula. Its really sad to see this happening. I think that what the Pavilions are doing for the local music scene could be the start of something new and exciting for the scene and to be a part of that is really special.

certain though. Mince pies. Lots of mince pies. There might even be a new tune. Who knows? Is it fair to say that this will be your biggest show to date? If so, what extra planning goes into a gig like this and how does it differ to a normal show? For sure. This is going to be huge. The last time we played in Plymouth was at the Hub and it went off. The home crowd were wild and it was so lovely to see so much support for local live music. The Pavilions should be even more explosive especially with Tankus the Henge playing alongside us.

For those who are yet to see you live, or hear your music, how would you describe your sound?

Its been a busy few weeks running up to the announcement getting everything in place and of course a show of this size takes extra planning.

I get asked this question a lot and its a hard one to answer because no two songs are the same and it don't really think we have a particular sound. We fuse quite a lot of styles together which I think creates a really unique vibe. I wouldn't put us under one particular genre but you can expect to hear some Funk, Reggae, Ska and Blues!

Big shout out to Plymouth Pavilions, Tom Keel (Bombarda Agency), Faith Ogilvie (Marketing Whizz) and Tom (Curly haired bass player) who have all been key in making this happen.

Your recent Boomtown Fair performance just confirmed your status as one of the most energetic, foot-stomping bands on the scene at the moment. What can we expect from this forthcoming show at the Pavilions? I don't want to give too much away as that would ruin the surprise but we have got some seriously tasty treats in store for you lot. One thing is for

34 woinplymouth

You were recently awarded 'Best Band' in the Southwest Music Awards. Is this something you take great pride in, or are awards secondary to playing live and seeing the reaction of fans? Awards like these are a great achievement and we are really proud to have been awarded it. However, there is really no greater high than playing in front of a crowd of people that are seriously enjoying watching you play. For me, this is the real achievement when it comes to playing music.

You’ve been touring constantly over the past couple of years, which must mean you have gotten to know each other quite well. Who has the most annoying habit and what is it? Ted Bakers bottom burps. Enough said. As a local band, who special will it be to play at the Pavilions in front of a home crowd? The Plymouth home crowd is one of the wildest bunch of animals anywhere in the world. We expect to see some serious crowd participation. There has been some huge acts that have graced that stage over the years and the fact that we now have the opportunity to do the same is a dream come true. It really is gonna be something special and if you don't buy a ticket then you will be missing out. It’s gonna be one spicy evening! What plans do you have for 2019 and can we expect any new music? You’ll just have to wait and see.

Paul Doidge,Executive Chef for the New Continental Group

Mitch Tonks of Rockfish and The Seahorse, Dartmouth

Three wise Chefs give us their perfect Christmas Dinner

Moorland Garden Hotel's Head Chef, Jake Westlake

If you are looking to add a little sparkle into this years festive fayre, we have asked three of Plymouth's most respected Head Chefs to come up with some perfect recipes to impress family and friends alike. 2, Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat, then add the onions and salt. Fry gently for 10 minutes, stirring now and then. Sprinkle over the sugar, and add the balsamic vinegar then continue to cook, stirring more regularly as they become softer, allowing them to catch slightly on the base of the pan before stirring, until they are richly caramelised. Season to taste, then set aside. 3, Bake the pastry for 20 minutes. Remove, carefully flip, then bake for 5 minutes. Remove the tray from the oven again, then flip the pastry back over and set it aside for a few minutes until it deflates slightly.

Paul Doidge's Blue Cheese Tart Serves 4-6

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cooking Time: 45 minutes Although we make our tarts individually at the Mission, using this recipe is a great way of sharing with friends and family

Ingredients:

Plain flour for dusting 500g all-butter pastry Butter for greasing 3 tbsp olive oil 4 red onions, finely sliced

40 woinplymouth

½ tsp salt 1 tsp granulated sugar 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar 200g creamy blue cheese thinly sliced 30g watercress 30g walnut pieces, lightly toasted

Method: 1, On a lightly floured surface, roll the pastry into a thin 30cm x 38cm rectangle. Carefully lift it onto a lightly buttered baking sheet, then prick all over with a fork. Chill in the fridge for at least 20 minutes.

4, Spread the pastry base with the onions, leaving a 2-3cm border around the edges. Top with the cheese, then bake for 5 minutes until the cheese has just melted. 5, Remove the tart from the oven and slide it onto a large wooden board. Scatter over the watercress and toasted walnuts, then slice the tart and serve straightaway, while the pastry is still warm and crisp.


At The Seahorse we can roast it on the bone and cut the fish tableside, and our guests get to enjoy the whole turbot experience! Method: 1, Heat the oven to 220C. Season the turbot with salt and rub with olive oil before roasting on a tray in the oven for 15-20 minutes. 2, To make the Hollandaise sauce put the egg yolks, mustard and water into a bowl and whisk to combine. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water and whisk until the eggs have doubled in volume and thickened. Whilst still whisking, gradually pour in the melted butter and combine to a smooth and thick sauce.

Mitch Tonks'

Roast Turbot with Hollandaise For 2 people

Turbot is the king of all flatfish, its texture is firm and it has a particular stickiness that comes from the natural fat and membrane between the thick flakes of fish which render whilst cooking. The bigger the fish, the simpler the cooking is the rule we apply to turbot; we try to buy fish 5kg and upwards in weight, and if possible sell the fish whole or in half to the whole table. At The Seahorse we can roast it on the bone and cut the fish tableside, and our guests get to enjoy the whole turbot experience!

3, Remove from the heat and add a squeeze of lemon, a little salt and a pinch of cayenne pepper to serve. @mitchtonks @seahorserestaurant

Ingredients:

2 turbot steaks about 300g each Sea salt 1 tbsp olive oil 2 egg yolks ½ tsp Dijon mustard 2 tbsp water 150g unsalted butter, melted 1 lemon Pinch of cayenne pepper

Method: 1. Grease and line with parchment paper a springform cake tin. 2. For the base: melt the butter for the biscuit base and add to the blitzed biscuits. Mix together and place in the lined tray. Leave to set. 3. To make the mousse: In a bain marie melt the butter, golden syrup and caramel condensed milk together. Soak the gelatine separately and add to the mix when it has softened, then leave to cool. Once cool, whisk the double cream until it shows soft peaks then fold through the mixture and once mixed, add to the top of the biscuit base. 4. For the jelly: soak the gelatine. In a pan, carefully bring the water and sugar to the boil, quickly add the cocoa powder and reduce to a simmer on low for 4-5 minutes until it shows a shine, keep a watchful eye or it can catch on the sides. Whisk in the gelatine and leave to go cold before placing it on top of the mousse.

Moorland Garden Hotel Millionaire Mousse Makes 6 – 8 portions

Boringdon Hall’s Scott spent the afternoon at the Salcombe Gin School where he dabbled in some distillation, concocting two of his own unique gin recipes which will be used for the evening’s menu. The afternoon began with a guided tour of the distillery and a run through of the art of distillation. It was then over to the Gin School laboratory to get the magic creations underway on one of the beautiful mini-copper pot stills. Scott carefully selected the botanicals and ingredients for the recipes, one with a nutty, coffee base which will be used for the post-dinner digestif and the other with a citrusy flavour, to go into his dessert for evening, the “Rutaceae” ruby grapefruit mousse and gin sorbet. “It’s great to be able to learn about other people’s passions, so when we got the opportunity to work with Salcombe Gin I jumped at the chance… I really enjoyed my day there and fully recommend their gin school to any gin lovers”- Scott Paton To book your place on the Boringdon & Salcombe Gin Gastronomy evening on Friday 1st February, give Boringdon’s team a call on 01752 344455 or book through their website – www.boringdonhall.co.uk

Winter is coming….. Book now for you Christmas Lunch or Party Night at The Corinthian

A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, thanks to the Victorian's During the middle ages, Christmas had become a prominent festival in England. Many of the countries dignitaries would celebrate with a Christmas Feast, with one notable event being held by King Richard II in 1377 where 28 Oxen and 300 sheep were eaten. Such feasts would see a Christmas Ale being supped whilst carols were sung by dancers.

1843 was a significant year for the 'rebirth' of Christmas. Although Charles Dickens did not invent the Victorian Christmas, his book A Christmas Carol (1843) went a long way to popularise and spread the traditions of a festival. Its themes of family, charity, goodwill, peace and happiness encapsulate the spirit of the Victorian Christmas. The preparation and eating of the feast, decorations and gift giving, entertainments and parlour games - all were essential to the celebration of the 'Victorian Christmas' and were shared by the whole family. In the same year, Henry Cole commissioned an artist to design a card for Christmas. The illustration showed a group of people around a dinner table and a Christmas message. The message on the card read 'Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year' and was taken from an informal letter, written by an English admiral in 1699. At one shilling each, these proved too dear for the ordinary Victorian family and so weren't initially successful. However, the idea caught on and many children - Queen Victoria's included – were encouraged to make their own Christmas cards. By the 1880s the sending of cards had

Despite its popularity, the reformation and subsequent Puritan parliament triumphing over King Charles I of England in 1644, resulted in Christmas being banned in 1647. This resulted in Pro-Christmas riots breaking out in major cities. The restoration in 1660 lifted the ban, but the celebration of Christmas was still disapproved of by the Anglican clergy. It wasn't until the beginning of the 1800's that Christmas took the form that we recognise today.

Many attribute the rise in popularity of Christmas in the 1800's to Queen Victoria, and it was her marriage to the German-born Prince Albert that introduced some of the most prominent aspects of Christmas.

In 1848 the Illustrated London News published a drawing of the royal family celebrating around a decorated Christmas tree, a tradition that was reminiscent of Prince Albert's childhood in Germany. Soon every home in Britain had a tree decked with candles, sweets, fruit, home made decorations and small gifts. Also in 1848, confectioner, Tom Smith, invented a new way to sell sweets. Inspired by a trip to Paris where he came across 'Bon-Bons', a sweet wrapped in paper, he came up with the idea of the Christmas cracker: a simple package filled with sweets that snapped when pulled apart. In years to follow the sweets were replaced by small gifts and paper hats. Finally, in the late 19th century, decorating the home at Christmas had became very popular. Using twigs and sprigs to decorate a room for a celebration had dated back to Medieval times, but in the 1880's families were encouraged to spend more time creating a more elaborate affair.

Sauvignon Blanc food and drink the alternative style of Greywacke by stephen Barrett

Over the past thirty years (yes!) Sauvignon Blanc has been with us in the UK in one form or another. Tasting it with a recognisable label has been a comparatively new phenomenon as most wines consumed in the UK market were void of this info. Then around the 1980’s the Australian wine revolution kicked in and offered us labels that were clear and precise. The name of the grape was emblazoned on the front of the bottle. Chardonnay suddenly appeared and changed the drinking habits of our wine sipping nation. But Sauvignon Blanc seemed to be lacking around this time as big and bold Aussie reds and whites dominated our palates. The simple reason we did not see Sauvignon Blanc as much was Australia made very little. Sauvignon Blanc is simply a cool climate grape and apart from obvious isolated micro-regions not much was being produced. But wait wasn’t France making Sauvignon Blanc around this time? You wouldn’t have known it as the current white wines of the time often just had the name of the town, hamlet or district on the bottle not allowing recognition of the grape. Sancerre, Touraine and Pouilly Fume were certainly on wine lists and being quietly and stylishly consumed without most wine drinkers knowing that Sauvignon Blanc was the only grape allowed when making these white wines. Around 1979 the first commercial Sauvignon Blanc started to come out of New Zealand. This was also around the time David Hohnen of Western Australia’s Cape Mentelle Vineyards hired winemaker Kevin Judd to make Sauvignon Blanc in Marlborough and started to produce the now fabled Cloudy Bay wines. Fast forward to 1985 when Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc started to win medals for what best could be described as a “fruit-forward textured” style as opposed to the more acid-mineral based style of Sancerre. A star was born and the rest as they say is history! We now consume zillions of bottles of the stuff purchased from Supermarkets, Wines Shops, and Wine Merchants and on-line. New Zealand had found a real winner and for many this Gooseberry/Passion fruit dry style of wine was their wine of choice. Most of the New Zealand’s Sauvignon Blanc is now shipped in bulk and bottled in the UK. This has enabled volumes to be transported easily and has for the most, kept the price in check. All in all a good thing for the ever-thirsty markets! But have you ever wondered about different styles of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc? Might you be aware there might be another grape added to the wine or the use of oak might add a textured curve to the finished taste? Does this matter? It seems not as our thirst for a simpler fruiter taste seems unabated. Marlborough is in New Zealand’s South Island and is by far the largest area planted with Sauvignon Blanc. The majority of the grapes are machine-harvested three years afer planting. There are also sub-districts in the Marlborough, the soils and aspect affects the taste of the grape and eventually the wine. Coupled with other wine making techniques in the winery different styles have emerged to create “house styles” that some of you would be familiar with.

Buckland Abbey

Step back in time and experience an Elizabethan style Christmas at Buckland Abbey. With cooking in the kitchen, decorations throughout the abbey and the traditional Lord of Misrule causing mischief – it is a Christmas not to be missed. The doors to the Great Barn are swinging open to reveal a Christmas from the natural world. The centre of the barn will be dominated by a 20,000 pine cone painted tree which has been lovingly created by visitors, local scout groups and volunteers. Come and see this awe inspiring sight from the 1st December. Once you have admired the Great Barn, you won't want to miss Christmas in the Abbey. This year the house will be transformed into an Elizabethan home of feast and festivity with local groups from the National Association of Flower Arranging Societies (NAFAS), who have been busy creating impressive floral displays that will fill the Abbey with plenty of colour and lots of festive cheer. The exhibition this year focuses on Francis Drakes circumnavigation of the world and around the sights and the smells of Christmases abroad and at home. Why not come and visit between Saturday 1st December and Wednesday 2nd January to see these impressive floral creations. Also a very special guest is coming to visit Buckland on weekends throughout December. Time travel back with us to 1577 where Francis Drake is travelling around the world and spending his first Christmas at sea in Morocco. It is here many miles from home that the crew have appointed their own ‘Lord of Misrule’ who managed the festive fun and games. Throughout this December come and see the Lord of Misrule who will be telling Christmas tales of life on the high seas and handing out a special gift to those who join in with the merrymaking. Booking is essential and times can be booked online via the Buckland Abbey website.

And finally, no New Year festivity is complete without a traditional Wassail. Come and join us as Dartmoor Border Morris leads the Wassail as we celebrate and hope for a good harvest next year. Just remember to bring your pots and pans to make lots of noise! Before the wassailing can begin, you will also be entertained by a traditional mummers play, which is an ancient custom of ‘making diversion in disguise’. The dancers will put on masks, dance and put on a play with a silly plot. Sunday 6th January 4pm till 5pm.

The artwork represents the ebb and flow of life and seasons at Cotehele, with flowers and foliage interwoven with reproductions of the First World War artefacts the local community have shared for the four years of the centenary exhibitions. You can come and watch the artwork being constructed in the hall from 29 October until 9 November, and watch Dominique at work alongside the garden team as they build the Christmas Garland, which will be made with a new colour scheme this year as part of the commemorative event. Once completed, the Commemoration Garland and the artwork will both be on display from 10 November until 6 January, except Christmas day and Boxing day. Over the festive season, there is also lots of other events to enjoy – including choir performances, family trails, wassailing, gallery exhibitions, roasts in the restaurant, and even a visit by Mother and Father Christmas. Visit our website www.nationaltrust.org.uk/ cotehele for more details about everything that is happening at Cotehele at this magical time of year.

christmas shopping If you prefer to support the Independents then Plymouth has its own Independent Quarter. The West End contains some smaller chains and more independent shops selling everything from all year round gifts, toys, jewellery and home products to name a few. Frankfurt Gate also offers up a number of independent shops, the like of which you won't find in the city centre. Plymouth's Shopping credentials took a major boost on October 5th 2006 with the opening of the £200 million Drake Circus Shopping Centre. No longer will you need to trek up the motorway to Bristol to do the big Christmas shop! Drake Circus is the West Country's most popular shopping centre. Inside you'll find many of the UK's top brand names and the biggest stores in the region all under one roof. With over 70 shops, you can browse for the latest fashions or discover great gifts for friends and family. There are loads of places to stop and eat and on a cold Winters afternoon it is the perfect place to shop. Drake Circus also benefits from having 1270 parking spaces making a visit not only memorable but easy at the same time. Staying on the 'undercover' theme, Plymouth's City Market is highly recommended and located within the city centre. The Market boasts a huge variety of family-run stalls selling household goods, arts and crafts, clothes, books, jewellery, computer accessories and much more. At excellent value for money, their fresh produce includes a diverse selection of fruit and veg, Devon lamb, locally caught fish, beautiful Cornish pasties and possibly ‘the best pork pies in the world’.

Plymouth: Top of the tree for Christmas shopping If you are at all worried about what to get that special someone this Christmas, and more importantly where to buy it, then don't be. Plymouth has a wealth of Independent shops, national chains, stylish boutiques and a collection of shopping centres that can offer the perfect gift to even the most difficult to buy for. It's that time of year again. Love it or hate it, the advent of Christmas means the buying of presents and the hope that your choice of gift is one that is appreciated by its recipient and not found a week later on e-bay. With approximately 250,000 residents to cater for, it will be no surprising that Plymouth has a wealth of Independent shops, national chains, stylish boutiques and a collection of Shopping centres that can offer the perfect gift to even the most difficult to buy for. The main city centre is a modern, pedestrianised area, traditionally starting at the Sun Dial (the perfect place to meet up for a days shop) and taking in Cornwall Street, Mayflower Street, Royal Parade and New George Street with Armada Way, which in itself offers up the under rated Armada Centre, sweeping from the railway station right up to the Plymouth Hoe.

Within such a short distance you will find a plethora of the big chain shops, department stores such as House of Fraser, Debenhams and Marks and Spencers, plus a number of independent shops that would satisfy even the most battle hardened shopper. The city centre is well laid out with a number of car parks to make access to shops and entertainment easy. The Piazza, which is adjacent to the Sun Dial, offers up a variety of events with its Big Screen regularly showing news bulletins and major sporting events. With plenty seating, relaxing coffee shops and restaurants the Piazza is an ideal place for shoppers to take a break. If you're not too worn out with your festive shop you can get into the Christmas spirit with the Plymouth Winter Festival ice rink which is also situated within the Plaza during the holiday period.

Once you've had your fill of shopping (if that's possible) take a well deserved rest at some of the Barbican 's finest tea rooms, fish and chip shops, restaurants and pubs – the perfect end to a days retail therapy. 66 woinplymouth

Finally, if you want to combine your shopping with great food and a lively atmosphere then the Barbican is the place for you. A short walk from the city centre, Southside Street is the main shopping street on the Barbican. Populated with jewellers, art galleries, the World famous Plymouth Gin shop and Visitor Centre, toy shops, antiques centres and much more besides, shoppers can enjoy a fulfilling retail experience against one of the cities most breathtaking backdrops. Once you've had your fill of shopping (if that's possible) take a well deserved rest at some of the Barbican 's finest tea rooms, fish and chip shops, restaurants and pubs – the perfect end to a days retail therapy. Wherever you decide to shop in the city, you will always find something for that special someone, making the whole Christmas shopping experience hassle free and if you can include a bite to eat and a glass or two of festive cheer then maybe next year you'll look forward to it. Over the course of the next 22 pages, we will highlight some of Plymouth's best shopping destinations, Christmas markets and independent retailers; that makes the city one of the best retail destinations in the South West!

Exeter Cathedral Christmas Market Nearly twelve months have passed since the events team at Exeter Cathedral took on the running of the popular Christmas Market for the first time. In this blog Cressida Peers (Events and Christmas Market Manager) gives an early insight into what’s back, and what’s changed In 2017 we worked hard (in partnership with local contractors and traders) to deliver a market that has become a popular feature in the region’s seasonal calendar, drawing in hundreds of thousands of visitors into the city and onto Cathedral Green. Since the lights of the market went dark in December, and the wooden chalets went into storage in the Devon countryside, we have been busy working behind the scenes to build on the success of last year’s event, and put together plans for this year’s Exeter Cathedral Christmas Market, which will open in around six weeks on Thursday 15thNovember 2018. The ‘food village’ to the north of the Cathedral is back by popular demand, with many traders applying to return for another year as well as some new faces. We have also looked to expand the number of craft and gift stalls for this year, with around 90 stalls in total expected to open in November (including six chalets that are being shared on a fortnightly rotation by businesses from In Exeter). You’ll have to watch this space for full details of the traders, which will be released during the coming weeks. Whilst the layout of the market will largely remain the same, there are some small changes due to the ongoing building work in Cathedral Yard. We have also taken the opportunity to widen one of the more popular routes within the market to try and make access better for visitors, as well as retaining the ramps along the steps that lead down to the ‘west front’ of the Cathedral itself.

Last year’s rustic tavern on the Cathedral Green, with its busy covered seating area, was a great success, and we’re proud that the bar (operated by local company The Oddfellows) picked up a well-deserved Exeter Living Award at the ceremony earlier this year. We have also listened to your feedback and are delighted to announce that this year there will also be another drinks outlet you visitors can buy mulled wine, mulled cider and last year’s popular mulled apple gin (the recipe is still secret!) to take with you as you explore the market - all adding to the Christmas experience!

Spaces are limited due to capacity so booking tickets online is essential to guarantee entry… *Small charge for these activities Chocolate workshop Join Chocolatier Nicola Brook, making festive chocolate truffles. There will be a choice of truffles to dip, decorate and beautifully box. Give them to someone special for Christmas or keep them for yourself…..it’s up to you! You will take home 6 truffles with a gift box included in the price. This workshop will run on both days of the festival in two sessions, one at 11:00 – 12:00 and session two at 13:15 – 14:15. Tickets are limited. To book a ticket, simply add this workshop to your order when purchasing your entry ticket.

Finally, it’s time to announce the competition to perform on the bandstand at the opening night of the Exeter Cathedral Christmas Market. Once again we are looking for the best of Devon’s musical talent to perform to shoppers at the start of the market, and we want YOU to apply. All you have to do is email christmas.market@exetercathedral.org.uk with a link to a video of yourself, your band or your group performing, and we’ll choose our favourites (in association with Devon Live) in time for the launch night. We’re also accepting applications to play on the bandstand at other times during the market.

Foraged Christmas Wreath Making Workshop Join Sheron King from the Mad Hatters Studio. Learn how to make your own woven wreath base from foraged material and then learn how to hand make and embellish with rustic vintage paper roses, leaves and berries.

Exeter Cathedral Christmas Market opens on Thursday 15th November at 18.00 and is open daily up to and including Sunday 16th December. The market will then be dismantled to allow for final preparations to be made for the busy Christmas services on the 24th and 25th December, which thousands of people attend each year.

Love your Indies

Much has changed over the past 20 years on our typical British 'high street'. Technological innovations, economic pressures, ever evolving products, tastes and strategies have influenced the landscape as well as our shopping trends.

The growth of out-of-town shopping, compounded by the impact of on-line retailing has created enormous challenges for the traditional high street and especially for local, independent traders as they battle with adapting to change but also maintaining their uniqueness and independence. With tougher economic conditions gripping the UK since 2008, the entering into the unknown with Brexit and many national chains severing their links, the traditional high street is now showing signs of reverting back to an older model - when Britain was considered a 'nation of shopkeepers'. If you ever wondered what the benefits of using Independent shops may be to you, your town and the local economy, then read on:

Traceability: Most local retailers will know exactly where they

or their provider gets their products from. This enables your independent retailer to let you know

80 woinplymouth

where the product was made/grown giving peace of mind as the purchaser. With recent scandals involving supermarkets and 'meat' providers this extremely sensitive situation can be avoided.

Unique Items:

Independent shops are the perfect place for a unique gift or item. Typically, a local trader will focus on local producers whether they be a local artist, designer, author or farmer - items that you will not see on the shelves of a national chain.

Boost to the local economy: Recent research suggest that 63 pence in the pound spent at a local, independent retailer would find its way back into the local economy, compared to just 40p with a larger business.

Increase in house prices:

The impact of a thriving independent high street has a knock-on effect to the cost of local house prices. On average, house prices in a prosperous area such as these have risen by ÂŁ40,000.

Community: Continuing the community theme – as more

towns promote and support local retailers, in turn local retailers will support the local community by holding events, fayres and markets to entice more people into the local community as well as add a 'social' aspect to the area.

Personal touch: As soon as you walk into an independent shop

you immediately notice the difference. Not only will you generally find the owner of the business on hand to give you their advice, background to the product and expert opinion but also you will inevitably find that (depending on the item) you can 'try before you buy' – giving you peace of mind and a sense of 'customer service' that has long been a distant memory for many larger businesses. You may also find that you get more for your money. How many times has there been an extra roll thrown in for a familiar face to the local bakery or a little discount when purchasing a couple of items. Again, something that is alien to the big chain and certainly something the member of staff will not be sanctioned to give.

Choice:

Having Independent retailers within any shopping area gives us as buyers choice. Many town centres and high streets have recently been criticised for being 'cloned' - offering the same uniformed goods, products and services. As we all have different tastes and styles, independent retailers can offer this choice which adds something different to what would be a very boring high street. With the years busiest shopping period on the horizon, we take a look at some of the best independent retailers the city has to offer, as well as showcase some fantastic gift ideas.

property With the end of the year fast approaching, and with the country still uncertain of its future, we speak to Chris Mervyn of Mansbridge Balment who gives us his thoughts on the local market and tips for 2019. Chris Mervyn, Marketing Director. Mansbridge Balment Plymouth Ltd

10% fewer mortgages approved in Sept 18, more signs of market slowing down As the year comes to an end, there has been even further evidence that the property market is slowing down. Yes, traditionally, the pre-Christmas period is a time where there are less sales and mortgage approvals going through, but the High Street saw a dramatic drop in people taking out new mortgages to buy a home in September.

Grab the bull by the horns

As a house seller, 2019 is all about being brave. If you’ve been planning a move but are worried that you haven’t seen anything you’d like to move to – and that’s stopped you from putting your house on the market in 2018 – then 2019 is the year to ‘grab the bull by the horns’ and get moving.

This year, what we have seen time and again is good estate agents managing clients moves in a structured and considered way because of a lack of stock and a nervousness to commit to sell. Even when there are no visible properties of interest to purchase available, good quality agents have re-assured and obtained the right buyer to fit to timescales that allow a property to be found. The very best estate agents appraise so many properties that often it’s a case that the right property has already been seen and it’s simply a phone-call to obtain that viewing. As one of the biggest selling agents in Plymouth we’ve done this already countless times this year and I see this ‘chain-building’ skill as key to having success in the market in 2019 too. You may have already seen a few properties advertised with a ‘SOLD’ strap on Rightmove and Zoopla and quizzed yourself how come you’d missed them being available? This will be why. Sold price wise, whilst there will be pockets of areas where sold prices will rise in Plymouth and surrounds - these will be driven by demand and quality. In my opinion the market will see little growth as a whole. We certainly won’t see the normal 3-5% growth in sold house prices that we normally advise for a year ahead. Asking price wise, we may see the advertised prices being a

few thousand more, due in part, to an inclination for a homeowner and some estate agents feeling everything is more expensive a year on. Savvier agents and buyers will typically see through this and this will reflect in sold prices staying fairly level.

It’s not about getting a high number of viewers, it’s about getting the right viewer and I’d much rather over deliver and under promise than tell you what I think you want to hear. And what about Estate Agency as a whole? A tougher market (where stock and prices fail to go up substantially) means that trust will be given to those agents who have knowledge and expertise – and a realistic approach to selling / moving their clients. It’s not about getting a high number of viewers, it’s about getting the right viewer and I’d much rather over deliver and under promise than tell you what I think you want to hear. Thank you for listening.

Research shows that banks approved 38,505 loans in the month (Sept 2018), a drop of 10.1% on the same time last year. This is the third month in a row that the number of approvals has fallen, and is the lowest total since March 2018. If these figures are to continue, then experts agree that there is likely to be fewer mortgages approved this year than in 2017.

The High Street saw a dramatic drop in people taking out new mortgages to buy a home in September. For the past five years, mortgage lending has struggled to make any sustained progress and this recent data confirms that this remains the case. Figures, from UK Finance, also show that fewer people re-mortgaged in September 2018, after a rush of activity in August, when the Bank of England raised interest rates. There is understandable nervousness about placing your trust in the property market at present. With the outcome of Brexit,and Britain's future when we leave the EU, coming towards its conclusion; and with the impact this may have on the property market uncertain, the aforementioned uncontrolables are putting people off buying, resulting with the number of new mortgages falling to a seven-month low. Although credit card spending continued to rise during the September 2018, to £10bn, 3.4% higher than in September 2017, the figures show that most of that money is being re-paid.


Are rental costs unaffordable for young adults in the South West?

How can our children better afford a roof over their heads? We are rapidly becoming a nation where property assets are increasingly being held by the old and where the young face the alternative of being forced to stay longer with mum and dad or getting fleeced by high market rents that ultimately prohibit them from ever saving enough to get a deposit together to buy their own homes. The problem arises from a supply side issue in the property market i.e. there is simply not enough property available to meet demand and hence prices (and subsequently rents) are being pushed ever higher. The ultimate longterm answer has got to be the building of more affordable homes to buy, and possibly even more importantly, the building of more homes that can deliver affordable rents. The government’s recent announcement that will allow local authorities to borrow more in order to finance the building of more homes to rent is a positive one. This will eventually help to deliver an increase in the affordable housing stock, but even with the cash in place, new houses will not be created overnight. Suitable building land will need to be found and the slow and lumbering planning process will have to be gone through. It will all take time to deliver results. A more curious initiative that is being talked about is the prospect of the government offering tax incentives to landlords to encourage them to sell their properties to their tenants who have been renting them for three or more years. Bearing in mind that a series of tax changes has been put in place in recent years to make Buy-To-Let less attractive as an investment proposition to property investors, offering a new tax incentive to landlords would seem slightly strange. In these stressed fiscal times, the logic in giving a tax incentive that does not result in any net increase in the housing stock could be debated. The government’s Help-To-Buy scheme does offer cheap equity loans to make mortgage borrowing initially more affordable to first-time-

buyers. It has now been taken up by over one hundred thousand borrowers. The scheme is available on new build housing, but it is questionable as to whether it has actually led to more construction taking place. The Treasury has allocated a total of £10bn to support its Help-To-Buy initiative and we are nearing that position. It is not known whether the scheme will again be extended or whether one of the very few mechanisms for getting young people into their own homes will soon fall away.

The government’s recent announcement that will allow local authorities to borrow more in order to finance the building of more homes to rent is a positive one. With current rents being so high (see opposite), in some circumstances it can be cheaper monthly to pay mortgage payments than to rent. What our children really need are the means today to afford mortgages today. There are ways to counter the issue. For example, some lenders will accept their parents as guarantors of their children’s mortgage payments. This has the effect of boosting children’s incomes and by doing so, increasing the amount that can be borrowed. Unfortunately, this doesn't cure the ills of the property market by itself, but can help our young people own properties where they can make their homes.

Recent reaserch from the BBC has concluded that for two-thirds of 22 - 29 year olds, across Britain, are paying in excess of 30% of their income on renting a property. According to many housing organisations, spending more than a third of income on rent is unaffordable. Figures collated for the South West region shows that the average 22 - 29 year old will spend 34% of their income on a one-bedroom home. According to House of Commons Library research, renting has more than doubled over the last 20 years, and 65% of 16-24 year olds and 42% of 25-34 year olds now rent privately.

According to many housing organisations, spending more than a third of income on rent as unaffordable. The BBC data also shows that a gross annual income of £ 24,800 would be needed in order to rent a one-bedroom home across England, without going above the 30% ceiling. In 1980, the average percentage of income spent on renting was just 10%, although many of these proeprties were rented from local councils or housing associations, rather than through a private landlord. Cost of renting in Plymouth: Figures relating to Plymouth show that both percentage of wages spent on renting, within the same criteria, are slightly lower at 33% (compared to 34%). This equates to an average of £ 546 per month being spent on rent for a one-bedroom home. For the same age group (22 - 29) renting a two-bedroom home, the average percentage rises to 38% and £ 633 per month being spent suggesting that sharing may offer an option for younger renters. However, when we look at all age groups renting a 4 bed home in the city, the average income percentage rises to 50% and £ 891 per month. Although this may seem high, as a region this figure is a staggering 75% and £ 1,350 per month outlay on average.

property Three digital tips for property sellers looking forward to 2019 Watch your tracks

How will Brexit affect UK housing Market? As the UK prepares for its departure from the EU on March 29th 2019, we take a look at how our leaving could effect the housing market and in particular, house prices and mortgages. When the result of the refferendum became known, in the early hours of June 24th 2016, there seemed to be little affect on the UK's housing market. Despite the sudden fall in the value of the pound, householders took time to take stock and consider their position. But as the UK are called to the Brexit departure lounge, estate agents are saying the unknowns surrounding Brexit are weighing on the property market. As we can see opposite, the number of mortgages approved dropped 10% in September 2018 compared to those at the same time last year. And with the governor of the Bank of England, Mark Carney, stating that a disruptive no-deal Brexit could slice 35 per cent off house prices, there is no wonder that potential buyers have the jitters. Although both negotiating parties have declared that a deal is the best outcome, Mr Carney’s warning represented an extreme scenario. So with the outcome still uncertain, what affect could Brexit have on the property market? Across the country, average prices remain on the rise, with the average Plymouth home now costing £ 179,650. Sales in the city were 5% up on the previous year and 8% up on 2015. National trends have also seen house prices rise by 3.2% (August 2018), although this is the slowest rate of growth in five years. This growth has been stymied by a drop of 0.2% in London. Is this a trend that may continue after Brexit, as fewer numbers of investor-buyers and stretched affordability in the UK’s most expensive markets? We will wait and see! It seems fairly clear that for homeowners in areas that are seeing prices fall, will take a cautious approach and see what happens after

As the UK are called to the Brexit departure lounge, estate agents are saying the unknowns surrounding Brexit are weighing on the property market. our exit. Although nothing may change directly after MArch 29th (as with the initial result in June 2016), there may be more of an idea after the formation (or lack of) a transition deal. One positive about the current situation, is that Brexit, and the uncertainty surrounding it, has helped keep mortgage rates low and hence the costs of home ownership low. After the referendum vote, the Bank of England cut rates to a record low of 0.25 % and has only recently raised the base rate to 0.75% (August 2018), just the second rise in a decade. If there were to be a disorderly exit, Mr Carney has indicated rates will continue to rise, but slowly. Many householders have taken the opportunity to lock in their existing mortgage rates through five-year fixed-rate deals in expectation of those increases. Obviosuly, a rise in interest rates would push up mortgage costs creating less wealth for householders. Finally, any final deal on Brexit would need to be passed in a parliamentary vote. If an agreement was approved by Westminster, both financial and proeprty markets would be reassured to a degree, albeit the long-term relationship with the EU would still have a major bearing on the future. The Bank of England has said its stress tests indicated banks could support the economy through a “disorderly Brexit”, since they had passed tests covering a scenario more severe than the 2008 financial crisis.

Before the Internet, properties were primarily marketed via newspaper advertisements, signs and in agents’ windows. These mediums had a remarkable and often overlooked advantage over modern forms of advertising – they left no easily traceable marketing or sales history (a digital footprint). In the newspaper age, an owner could dip their toe in to test the waters. If they didn’t like the result, they would take the property off the market or reduce the price. Without a digital footprint, there was very little long-term harm to the value of the property. The marketplace quickly forgot. Conversely, the Internet remembers everything and forgets nothing. A digital footprint intensifies the danger posed by an extended marketing period as it creates a wealth of knowledge provided at the click of a mouse and, in negotiation, knowledge is power.

Christmas advertising

Brace yourself for various versions of the same Rightmove statistics being wheeled out in the run up to Christmas to justify clients instructing agents to sell their house during the festivities. The usual script is that there is a “seasonal surge in activity” that clients “really need to make the most of“. The real truth is the Christmas holidays are the absolute lowest autumn/winter point for activity on Rightmove. Yes, millions of people are on Rightmove over Christmas but its a fraction of their usual traffic. Any “seasonal surge” is really just the public getting back to normal patterns and it happens after New Year not Christmas. Whilst creativite thinking is admirable, the sheer chutzpah of some agents marketing departments to spin a narrow selection of statistics to their own advantage, the truth is you’re better off waiting until mid January to launch your property to the market.

Digital eavesdroppers on viewings

If you’ve got a smart speaker (Alexa/Google Home or the like) in your property, you might want to advise your agent before viewings. It can be a little disconcerting to all involved if the speaker picks up and reacts to conversations between agent and viewer. You'd be surprised how often this happens!
