  • Cool stuff to do this weekend

    The Lipsinkers, The Firestation Arts Centre, Windsor, Sat 25 March Camp, cult and brilliantly bonkers… The Lipsinkers are transporting their unique and radical drag show to Windsor with its mix of showbiz insanity and queer political spoof. Forget Ru Paul and Danny La Rue, this show’s weird, wild and very naughty. There’s even an after hours session –DJing disco and […]

    Watership Down, The Watermill, Newbury, Thur 16 to Sat 23 June If, like me, you sobbed your way through the book as a child, be prepared to relive all those poignant moments, but well worth getting through a packet of tissues for, as it sounds amazing!
