Wednesday April 6th at 7pm in the upstairs lounge at Beach and Barnicott-  was the grand finale of Fanny’s spring gigs with Rory Mcleod. She had invited 9 mostly local acts of exceptionally high standards, all of whom came up trumps, the audience was delighted and surprised as they watched from their sofas and floor cushions.

Inspired by the work of Mr Paul Murphy , Fanny hosted a spring evening of specially invited experienced and acclaimed musicians who played alongside up and coming and unsigned artists in an unpredictable and exciting show-case of raw talent.

Special thanks goes to Ian Rogers from the Orange Box Yeovil who mastered the sound beautifully, on the hoof and off the cuff. Performers included Dan Dickinson, Jack Harrison, Joe Trudgeon, Ergo Phizmiz, Will Sear, Aidan Simpson, The Sometimes and Forever Band, The Engine Room, Rory McLeod and Mr Paul Murphy Himself.

publick-transportMining its trademark vein of absurdist humour, the brilliant theatre duo Publick Transport returns to rural Dorset for two nights as part of Artsreach’s spring programme.

In these times of uncertainty laughter goes a long way, and although government isn’t an obvious comical topic, Publick Transport makes it a perfect tonic in their theatrical comedy ‘The Department of Smelling Pistakes’. This production follows Publick Transport’s touring comedy production last year, ‘20,000 Leagues Under The Office’.

robininceOn Saturday 19 March, comedian and writer Robin Ince stops off at Bridport Arts Centre on his Bad Book Club Tour. Based on the book that’s based on the award-winning comedy night, Robin gives a funny and fascinating tour through the books you didn’t know you didn’t need to read.

Combining his twin passions of science and bad literature, he clashes Cliff Richard biographies with evolutionary biology, Dutch astrology with books on how to pick up sexy girls.

The new Pod Films website is now live and ready for your visit featuring films from local photographer & film-maker Dave Young. Including his wonderful Political Masterpiece and a short film about the Electric Palace filmed for the Guardian.

Who's Afear'd of zombiesThank you to the legions of undead who turned up on Allington Hill last Sunday, to take part in the Who's Afear'd music video shoot. The weather stayed clear for a successful day filming and as promised there was blood, gore and cider (the rough cider was like Jack Frost tiptoeing down your spine and zombified many). Followed by a right shin kicking gig at the Ropeys after.

What with all this talk of Cull the Gull we thought this would be a topical way to waste your time online.
