Magic from MJ-UK

For those of you with good memories or who are such avid followers of our adventures that you just know everything about our general Magnificentness, you may already be aware of our connections with MJ-UK Music & Arts, a youth theatre group based in nearby Cirencester.

Last year the Blokes did a fund raising concert with them in Bingham Hall in the capital of the cotswolds, and this year they are doing another one of their amazing shows, a new production of a new musical that recently completed a decent sized run in that there London Town, called "The Clockmaker's Daughter".

Reports from those in the know describe it as a blend of Les MisĂ©rables + elements of Sondheim + Disney, all with a local cast of terrifically (curmudgeons would say sickeningly) talented group of youngsters.  They are all working very hard to make it a great show, so

Watch their feature video at http://mj-uk.com


Follow their journey at https://www.facebook.com/MJUKMusicAndArts and https://twitter.com/MJUKMusicArts if you do that sort of thing

And get your tickets from http://mj-uk.com/index.php/tickets/


And maybe you will see one or two familiar faces there (most likely near the bar!).

Spooky Men on the Radio


In case you had facebook switched off yesterday, or just don't do that sort of thing, you may not have noticed that a crack team of black clad sonic operatives descended upon the nation's hallowed institution that is the BBC, Radio 3 no less, to do some singing and chatting stuff.

But, be ye not sad, the sounds of Spookyness on the airwaves can still be heard via your favourite digital device, or failing that, computer or smart@rse phone via http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b06402ny.

And you can, and really should, catch them in the flesh in the real world via their on-going sojourn suffering over-generous breakfasts across these lands - see http://www.spookymen.com/gigs.php for a full list of where you can catch them.
