Photo-a-day 31: Unusual product choice in WHSmith

20120131-174614.jpg

Not only does WHSmith appear to have Hallowe’en stock prominently displayed on exactly three months after the event, they’re also charging a whopping 69p for a Creme Egg! Needless to say, I didn’t partake!

Photo-a-day 30: Gateshead Millennium Bridge

20120123-234127.jpg

The Gateshead Millennium Bridge has always struck me as slightly oddly named: it is named not for the river it crosses, but for the smaller of the two conurbations it connects; and opened some time into the new Millennium. Incidentally, the ugly bollards in the river beneath are due to start being removed any day now.

Love Never Dies gets increasingly positive press

For all the undeserved flak it has received, Love Never Dies is one of the greatest of all Lloyd Webber’s musicals… the original cast recording sends shivers down my spine whenever I listen to it.

Charles Spencer was always a fan, but seeing an ever-increasing number of positive reviews of the Australian production of Love Never Dies, like Charles’s in the Telegraph today, fills me with happiness. It’s a breathtakingly brilliant musical, phenomenally under-rated and under-estimated. I’ll be amazed if it doesn’t return to London to rave reviews before the decade’s out.
