Christmas seems a long time away, but here at the Pavilion Theatre preparations for the new panto start straight after the last panto finishes.  Tickets for the new pantomime go on sale in early January, even before we know who will be playing the lead roles!

This year we announced our all star line up in May.  In August our stars are invited to meet up at the theatre, try on their costumes and get into character for the first time.  Members of the press are invited along to take photos and have a chat with our stars.

On a wet and muggy afternoon in mid August, the Pavilion Theatre is buzzing with dance auditions and the excitement of welcoming this year’s panto stars.

First to arrive are our fabulous pantomime Dames, Jamie Morris and Tarot Joseph.  They have both appeared in panto at the Pavilion before in…

The soldiers have arrived!! With the film out on DVD August 17th 2015 from Safecracker Pictures. Its time to leap into the world of Soldiers of The Damned.

It ’s the Eastern Front, 1944. The Russians are pushing the German Army back through Romania. Major Kurt Fleischer, war-weary commander of an elite troop of German soldiers, is ordered to escort a female scientist into a mysterious forest behind enemy lines to retrieve an ancient relic. As his men begin to disappear in strange circumstances Fleischer realises that the scientist is part of Himmler’s occult department and there is something in the forest that is far more deadly than the Russians.

Wanted: Your recommendations for the best places to enjoy coffee and cake in and around Chester

It’s been an action-packed summer in the city – or four cities and a town, should we say.

We’ve enjoyed exploring our own beautiful city, along with day trips to Liverpool and Manchester and two short breaks to the historic city of York and to the stunning birthplace and home town of Shakespeare that is Stratford-upon-Avon.

Shakespeare and history aside, one key ritual on all of our travels this summer is to take the time to sit down, rest our weary tourist bones and enjoy a cup of something caffeine-laden along with a sugary treat or two. It’s an opportunity to recharge the batteries and enjoy some time out or to have a good chat and put the world to rights.

While in York, we called into what has become a regular haunt on our visits to…

Syfy cancel Haven

HAven logoThe Troubles are over.

According to TheWrap, Syfy has decided not to commission any more episodes of Haven, the series based on the Stephen King novella The Colorado Kid. The final 13 episodes, comprising the “second half of the fifth season” (ie the sixth season in all but name) will air later this year.

Showrunner Gabrielle Stanton told TheWrap that the end had been prepared for.

“I’m sure as a fellow TV fan, there’s nothing more annoying than when a show kind of feels like it might be wrapping up, but they just don’t address it, they don’t come to any kind of satisfying conclusion,” she said. “I always think that’s cheating the audience a little bit, of a nice satisfying ending. So we really looked at these 13 episodes as if… If we were indeed going to end, what would be the best ending we could possibly do for Haven?”

Over in a flash: Creative writing workshop at Chester Library

Superwoman author Shirley Conran once famously declared that “Life is too short to stuff a mushroom”.

Well, I’m all for a bit of wisdom and inspiration and I think Shirley would agree with me in adding that life’s also too short to ignore your passions and dreams.

I love creative writing and so with that in mind I signed up for a flash fiction workshop at Chester Library.

The Summer Flash workshop, organised by Chester Writers with Chester Library as part of adult learners week, was led by award-winning local author Clare Dudman.

You may at this point be wondering what on earth flash fiction is. Well, in a nutshell, it’s a short short story – anything from 50 words (known in the trade as a dribble), to around 1000 words.

Some 14 local writers took part in the workshop, having a go at a series of exercises, from…

Going Private For Dental Care is the Right Option

So quite a while back I wrote about a problem I had with a tooth that had to be removed due to an abscess on the root of the tooth and the problems that had led from that terrible day with an ill-fitting alternative that my dentist had made!

Since that day, it’s been nothing put a nightmare, not being able to eat properly and constantly having to keep a denture in with a load of denture fix, due to the fact that it’s never been fitted correctly in the first place, not even to mention the problems with the tooth that they chipped while trying to remove the denture when it was first fitted as it was so tight it had to be pried from my mouth.

With all these problems and many more, it’s been a bumpy road trying to get things sorted, then months and months down the line, I made a decision that is going to be an expensive one, but is the only option I have as the NHS dentist really isn’t helping with the problems that I have had since 2014, the decision was to go private!

Yes it is going to cost a fortune, but at least once the work is done I won’t have the atrocious problems that I am having now, now more not being able to chew food because my side teeth don’t touch when chewing, no more constant swallowing to force pressure on to the plate at the roof of my mouth to keep it in place, which is horrible when you are talking to people and no more being terrified that at any moment the stupid denture will just fall out for now other reason that  it’s been incorrectly made!

The option I have taken for the private dental work is an implant which is used to support one or more false teeth. It is a titanium screw that can replace the root of a tooth when it fails. Just like a tooth root, it is placed into the jawbone.

Dental Implant

An 3D X Ray of my jaw and where the Dental Implant will be placed

I do have to say that I am a little nervous about having the work done, after all it is something that I have had to carefully think about before going ahead with it, but after getting in touch with a dentist that I used to have many years ago and finding out that he now has a private practise I was set at ease.

Willows Dental in St Asaph is perfect for me, it’s only down the road for me, I had my first consultation with them last month and after looking over my teeth and taking lots of measurements and casts of my teeth, it was down to discussing what should be done for me to get rid of this awful denture.

The other day, I met up with Dr David Lee at the practice and discussed the work for the implant, he set me at ease with explaining how it would be done, the after care and so much more. So, in July the work will start for my implant for a nice new tooth and my bottom teeth which will also be sorted out as well, this is great, never got any of this great advice from my other dentist!

So suffice to say, I’m now both excited and nervous about the day, but it’s all good, although it is going to cost me a bit of money, it’s worth it to be able to not have any more embarrassing problems with a denture that has never been fitted right since day one!

Wish me luck folks ;)
