Wow, what more can I say, than, "That was absolutely delicious!" I've just come back from an afternoon tea treat with my 'DIGESTIVELY-CHALLENGED' family members and it was a complete success. The Great Northern Hotel create afternoon teas like most other hotels do, but before you sign off with no interest, theirs have a BIG difference... GLUTEN-FREE / COELIACS / DIABETICS / MEN please read on... ! Your table awaits in the 1852 Restaurant for something you've probably dreamed of and more. So, let's start the ball rolling on this glorious afternoon delight... If you're a MAN you may

We attended a practice session tonight for the musical of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels... being played by the Peterborough Operatic and Dramatic Society this March at The Key Theatre. The group has been going since the early 1900s believe it or not and there’s a complete mix of people within their group working full time in the day as they then also give up their spare time to their passion or love of acting, dancing and singing whether they are ex-professional from London’s West End or amateur.

Howdy partners... we’ve had an ‘ace-high’ time tonight down at Red Rock and ‘Blazing saddles’ we managed to skedaddle out of there... and we’re feeling rather ‘flush’. What are we jabbering on about? There’s a fabulous new escape room hidden away at the Greyhound stadium at Fengate. There’ll be no ‘namby-pambying’ around and you’ll be dusting the sawdust from your brain with this western themed room. Our team of 4 bandits were digging up all sorts of mind-boggling clues...at one point we thought we were ‘goners’... But we made it out alive using our skill to rob the bank for

Chocolate Making & City College

A little while back the City College Peterborough brought out their 2017/2018 catalogue for small courses and the one to catch my eye, obviously, was:  'Sweets & Chocolate Making: Would you like to be able to make your own handmade chocolates, sweets and marzipan fruits? This short course will demonstrate how to make your own sweets and how to box them to give as gifts.' Errr - yes! Even though I've not done a course at the college for around 12 years I booked in anticipation of learning something new! (Just £22 for 3 hours - bargain!) And, what a
