On Literary Flits
London Theatre Direct tickets for The Miser
“Suspect everybody! Take into custody the whole town and suburbs,” cries the Miser as his hoard is stolen.
Griff Rhys Jones returns to the stage in Molière’s The Miser (L'Avare) showing at the Garrick theatre this spring.
Newly adapted by Sean Foley and Phil Porter, Griff Rhys Jones will be joined by BAFTA and British Comedy Award winning comedian Lee Mack, who will be making his West End debut and by Mathew Horne of Gavin And Stacey and The Catherine Tate Show. Performances started yesterday, the 1st of March, and continue until the 3rd of June.
Get your tickets via London Theatre Direct!
Fanatical about protecting his wealth, the paranoid Harpagon (Griff Rhys Jones) suspects all of trying to filch his fortune and will go to any length to protect it. A matchmaker motivated only by money, he sets his sights on wealthy spouses for his children, so his riches are safe from their grubby hands. As true feelings and identities are revealed will Harpagon allow his children to follow their heart, or will his love of gold prove all-consuming? Passion and purse strings go head to head in this rip roaring comedy, by France’s greatest dramatist.
World Book Day at Waterstones
I couldn't not spotlight a bookshop in this post, especially as today is World Book Day! A feature on many British highstreets as well as in Ireland, Belgium and the Netherlands, Waterstones was founded in London in 1982. I like that stores stock a pretty wide range of titles, considering space limitations, and bargains can be found, particularly when buying a few books at once. Online purchases from the Waterstones website can be delivered free to your local store for collection which is great for receiving larger-than-letterbox-size parcels on weekdays!
I like that several stores are trying to foster bookish communities in their towns by putting on events that are well worth attending. Author talks and book signings are not only fun in themselves, but also a good way to meet like-minded readers. For World Book Day, many branches will be hosting events and working with their local schools to promote child literacy. With every child in the UK and Ireland who is in full-time education entitled to a World Book Day book token, there’s no better incentive to pop down to your local Waterstones and start diving in. The tokens can be exchanged for any one of the ten specially-produced World Book Day books (whilst stock lasts) or redeemed against a full-priced Children’s book or audio book worth £2.99 or more. World Book Day tokens are worth £1 or €1.50.

The Caravan And Motorhome Club membership
We joined The Caravan Club as an essential part of our UK tour in the summer of 2015. Their network of small and basic Certified Location campsites was perfect for us, both for their price and tranquillity so we soon recouped the cost of our membership. For caravanners and motorhomers wanting more entertainment and facilities, the Caravan Club has a good choice of all-singing all-dancing sites too. Altogether membership gives access to over 2700 campsites and we have stayed at several affiliated ones in France and Spain.
Announced in February, a rebrand to The Caravan And Motorhome Club is intended to better reflect a broadening membership; embracing diversity and reinforcement the sense of community. The Club is upgrading facilities across the entire site network, including having wi-fi on every single site by the end of this year. They already have facilities for motorhomes to empty their waste and refill with water on almost 90% of the network and are expanding their worldwide travel, so we’ll have even more inspiring places to go.
With both Mother's Day and Easter looming into view, it is time to be thinking of chocolate gifts (when isn't it!) and I think Choc On Choc has probably the most original range I have ever seen. My eye was first caught by their miniature books and I was soon also delighted by the ideas of a Chocolate Vinyl And Cassette Duo or a gorgeously detailed Chocolate Cheese Board.
Choc on Choc's unique chocolate designs are beautfully crafted and lovingly hand made in their Somerset factory. Artisans mould each delicious piece from casts made of plaster, a crafting technique which allows for really intricate designs, using best quality Belgian Chocolate - the dark is 53% making it a delightful and manageable taste, without the bitterness you would get from say a 70% dark chocolate. The White is 28% smooth, creamy and delicious!
Choc On Choc sell via NotOnTheHighStreet.com so you can be confident in their customer service and your purchase.
