New York, Los Angeles, Burnley

Eddie Izzard arrived at the teeny weeny Burnley Mechanics after his dates in the States to try out some new material before his UK Arena tour this autumn. Tkts were like diamonds but we managed to get enough to also take along our niece and nephew as a surprise present. Greeted like a rock star he started his performance late at night at 10.30pm leading most to believe he would just perform an hours worth of new material to test the water on a new crowd. However he went on to perform a full brilliant show.
A football team newly promoted to the Premiership: Eddie Izzard at the Mechanics and yesterday Marillion announce the Mechanics as a venue for this Autumns unplugged tour. We are half expecting Madonna to announce dates here next week!

Northumberland May 2009

First you will notice there is still no TR for China. So what I have done in the meantime is updated all the photos in the album with more detailed descriptions and finally put the last of the photos in there. When Virgin Holidays satisfy us that they are capable of running a tour and answer some rather simple questions I will get around to putting up a TR.
May saw us in Northumberland and what a lovely area of the country it is. The weather was beautiful and the scenery fantastic. I should have done more research into the food because apart from a lovely lunch in "The Sanctuary" at Alnwick Castle food was a little dissapointing.
