We are always keen to support local events, so with our affiliation with the 'Friends of Lowther Pavilion' we thought we'd let you know about their forthcoming event.

The Friends have teamed up with Elaine and her team at Silverdells in Kirkham to bring to King Edward & Queen Mary School, 'An Evening with Stuart Maconie'

More details can be found on the Friends website but basically the event is on Thursday 5th March, 7pm. Tickets are £15 and include a free copy of Stuart's latest book 'Adventures on the High Teas'.
Please support the 'Friends'.

Start Of A New Week!

It's the start of a busy week at S&P and already appointments are scarce, so it's not all doom and gloom. Maybe now it is getting towards the end of winter people are feeling a bit cheery and looking forward to a new spring/summer style!

At the minute, Stewart's favourite celebrity hairstyle is Cheryl Cole (as pictured on the left), long flowing locks with extra volume and 'oomph'.

Christina's favourite celebrity style of the moment is Gwyneth Paltrow's new bob (right). A sleek, sharp modern bob with a clean and bright blonde colour to compliment.

Please feel free to comment on your favourite of the two, and each week we will add new celebrities for you to choose from!

Showzam! Festival of circus, magic and new variety

Last night Peter & Stewart visited Showzam, Blackpool's Festival of circus, magic and new variety. The festival now in it's second year brings together performers from all over Europe for the one week festival to celebrate performance of circus and new variety.

The finale of the event was 'Heat in the Streets' that we attended last night. There was a parade first of all, followed by Street Theatre throughout Blackpool. All the street theatre was surrounding the theme of Fire. There were some fantastic installations

The grand finale was in the glamorous Bonney Street Car Park. This was using fire to harness the power of steam. Although it got off to a slow start it did pick up, and ended with pyrotechnics and fire balls.

We even got the bus into town, we'd like to think that it was helping our carbon footprint, but more so that we could partake in a few drinks after the festival. We were impressed with Blackpool Transports modern, clean buses and reasonable fares. It cost us £1.90 from St Annes to Blackpool each, where a taxi is the best part of £15.00. Do try the bus if you don't already.

Afterwards we ate with Friends Jason and Kevin at Nunzio's on Queen Street in Blackpool. It was lovely food, in a very fast paced Italian Restaurant. The place was packed, but you still felt you got the personal attention and service. The food was good, and the wine was flowing!!!
