  3. There are lots of Cinnabar Moths on the plants around our local marina and on the coastal path I walk with Chip. They are very pretty.
  4. Here's a feature about a young man going for a taster class to a "men only" adult ballet class that has recently been set up: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/entertainment-arts-40703299/yorkshireman-xander-parish-on-dancing-in-russia

  9. Apparently a lot of people have been complaining about the Hull 2017 website crashing as they try to book tickets for the live screening: http://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/news/fans-lash-out-hull-2017-228954 I don't think the websites can have been stress tested!

  11. Great review - thanks!
  12. Link to the thread with details of the Ann Maguire Gala:
  13. Article about the selling out of the gala: http://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/whats-on/whats-on-news/website-crashes-people-queue-330am-224596
  14. Thanks for the information about this Sebastian - it sounds wonderful.
  15. Well it does seem strange that they sold out so quickly with the website not being available. If it had been stated that a limited number of tickets would be available to the general public that may have been a better way of doing it.
