  • Pure GINius!


    A site for sore heads…

    Cornish juniper grows wild on the Lizard peninsula, the only place in Britain where the evergreen conifer can grow. Maybe that’s why Cornish gin tastes so good – our berry harvests are brilliant…

    So it’s no surprise that, for those who wish to avoid the full-on festivities of the Golowan in Penzance, the annual excuse for tasting your way to silliness that is the Cornwall Gin Fest is coming again soon to Truro. Held on the Plaza, this is a ticketed event with three sessions to choose from – Saturday afternoon, June 24th, Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon, 25th June 2017.

    For more details, see Cornwallginfest.co.uk. Mine’s a Tarquin.

    “Happy love?” “Like a bloke…”

    I was going to start this post with ‘I’m never going to be able to get all that in my mouth’ (more…)

  • Coming out of the stigma cupboard…

    Harriet Dyer makes no bones about the fact that she has Bipolar Disorder, and her jerky often random delivery style takes a while to attune (more…)

  • Germany, France, India, Japan

    No, it isn’t a World Cup football group. Far from it – it’s the global reach of June’s programme at the Penwith Film Society, showing at the Newlyn Filmhouse (which is a great favourite of ours for the films they show, the comfortable seats and the bar/restaurant upstairs). The month of June sees the ‘Masterpieces of European Cinema’ season continue with The Innocents (France; 2016) and Fear Eats The Soul (Germany; 1974), but the film that caught my eye is the Indian classic about a woman whose marriage is turned upside down when she is forced by her redundant husband to go out to work, only to find that she is adept at business in a way he cannot match. The Big City is on Monday June 12th; for more information, see www.penwithfilmsociety.co.uk/
