The Open Neck Shirt 2010

The Table Football connoisseurs pub.

The latest instalment of the Open Neck Shirt will commence in the Seven Oaks on Friday 19 November at 1pm. All the usual suspects are invited and the usual venues will be frequented. As well as the Seven Oaks, I'm sure we will be visiting the Circus Tavern, Corbieres, and the Peveril of the Peak.

The Manchester Christmas Market is also a particular favourite, who could forego the delights of a warming Gluhwein and humungous German sausage!

Bratwurst time.

Looking forward to another spectacular event, but please enjoy in moderation.

Peace in Sheffield and No Redemption in Durham

As part of the Off the Shelf Festival the Shepley Book Club boys went to hear David Peace speak. Here's a photo of David with the group. David read from Damned United and talked about his Yorkshire based books. There was also an opportunity to hear from Keith Pattison who has produced 'No Redemption' a challenging book of black and white photographs of the Miners' strike in the Durham coalfield. As we enter a new age of austerity the images offer a stark reminder of the deep divisions that still exist in our society. You can view a slideshow of Keith's photographs here.

WinkBall! Wigan V Wolves

I was interviewed for 'WinkBall' prior to the the Wigan V Wolves game - here are the embarassing results. I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

At least I 'nearly' got the score and scorers right.

The wink is purely involuntary!
