thanks to all those who’ve sent appreciations and good wishes – I am especially touched by this piece in the CTW Newsletter – and to
those organisations, professional and amateur, who have offered us
complimentary tickets with no expectation of a blog review.
some of you will have noticed, I am trying to see as much live
entertainment as my wallet and my wife will allow – apologies to
those I’ve missed.
year turns, and the reviewing calendar is empty.
more blogs, no more double bookings, no more press night perks.
45 years and thousands of reviews, in print and online, it’s time
to hang up the “reviewing bag” - pens, notebooks, torch, cough
sweets, water – and put my feet up.
do you mean ?
brief, no new entries on this blog, except for some archive pieces,
which will be tweeted and shared in the usual way. But still the
occasional piece for other sites, adjudications for any group that
might care to commission them - and maybe Facebook mentions for the
events I shall pay to see.
thanks, of course, to all those who’ve invited me, to the
performers who’ve entertained me, the papers and the websites that
carried my words and to my driver and amanuensis, without whom I
should have given up long ago …
