One of Britannia Panopticon’s claims to fame is that the sixteen year old Stan Laurel (of Laurel and Hardy) made this first stage appearance there. There’s plenty of memorabilia to see including costumes, musical instruments, photos and posters. There are […]

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 05:07:56 +0000

I visited the Museu Nacional de Soares dos Reis in Porto on a Sunday when I thought that it was free to enter. It was rather embarassing as when I sauntered in, a member of staff came after me saying that I had to pay an admission fee. I turned out that free admission is […]

The International Poster Exhibition is on at The Lighthouse in Glasgow until 25 November 2017. It’s part of the Graphic Design Festival Scotland. My favourite poster was one depicting Martin Luther King wearing a Trump-like baseball cap with the caption ‘This was not my dream’.

When I was in the Spanish city of Malaga, I decided to treat myself to lunch at the Kaleido Restaurant, which is situated on the prom at the port. I’m usually on the lookout for a menu of the day for around 10 Euro. At Kaleido, the lunch set menu was more expensive at 17 […]
