Manchester Pride Launch Party

My partner and I were happy to attend the Manchester Pride Launch Party at the Radisson Edwardian hotel in Manchester City Centre. It was well attended and it was good to meet Jackie Crozier and the other event organizers, plus the Radisson hospitality was excellent.

However, the journey to Manchester was another matter! We allowed plenty of time thank goodness because the minute we got onto the A1 we had wall to wall traffic all the way there. And it was a Wednesday...so where was everybody going we wanted to know? We arrived in Manchester City Centre at 5pm, big mistake - even more slow moving traffic. And when we tried to grab peoples attention to get directions they were either on their mobiles or had iPods attached to their ears!!! We got there eventually with 10mins to spare.

Did I mention the parking...no?...Well that's another story!!!

The journey back home was great, no traffic therefore no problems.

Time Out With Friends

Spent a relaxing few days down South with friends I haven't seen for what seems like ages. It was great just to chill and catch up. One had to work, but as she says being on stage is fun and not like working at all, but on the other hand I know it is hard work because I go on stage myself. Gloria had to stay at home, mores the pity...there's always next time though, hopefully in the not too distant future when my friends tour up North and we can all catch up again.

Take care everyone

Intothebleach live at Glusburn



Saturday 31st March. Venue Glusburn, Yorkshire.

Sam and her band rocked Glusburn, they went down a storm with the audience, and it was so good to see her again. Dig the orange suit.

After we all danced the night away, thanks to their cracking performance (you really must go and see them visit www.intothebleach@aol.com for details) we took time out behind the scenes to catch up on news and gossip. Girl power = Sam, Gloria and Ellen.

Check out their video on www.myspace.com/chrisdm36

I saw an empty champagne bottle - wonder if Hyacinth was there? Did any of you see her? If you did then please let me know.

The Man Who Would Be King

Went to see 'The Man Who Would Be King' performed by The North Theatre Company. Absolutely fab. Looking forward to seeing their next production in the autumn.
