For the first time in over ten years I visited Ayr and Ayr Beach. It makes a great walk, especially at low tide but even at high tide the beach is still accessible. There’s loads of history in Ayr itself and it’s a very pleasant easy walk from the breakwater pier and harbour area plus […]

12 – 25 April, 2019 If ever a film deserves the accolade crowd-pleasing then it is Wild Rose. A Glasgow story of a young woman’s determination to follow her dream, it has the rousing, heartmelting qualities of The Full Monty or Billy Elliot. Jessie Buckley lights up the screen as Rose-Lynn Harlan. Her impossible dream is to become a county music […]

19 – 25 April, 2019 The great Toni Servillo is at the top of his game playing Silvio Berlusconi in Paolo Sorrentino’s baroque, state-of-the-nation epic.
