  • Wouldn’t You Though?

    What looks like a work of art is actually a boombastic powerhouse of sound that is winning awards all over the place. Check out the coolest Bluetooth speaker EVER!

  • #WHATIREALLYREALLYWANT: EMPOWERING A NEW GENERATION

    I’m a bit slow off the mark with this – hats off to Lou, editor of Muddy Cornwall who spotted it waaaaay before me (*sniff*) – but if you haven’t already seen it, it’s definitely worth a gander. It’s a vid featuring global female artists (none of whom I recognise but there you go, that’s middle age […]

  • The Muddy Summer Festival Guide: Kent and Beyond

    I’m a dedicated festival lover but, let’s be clear, I’m not a hardcore roll-in-mud and wet-wipes-at-dawn music-fan. Oh no. I’m just going to come out and say that I’m a namby-pamby glamper. All the way. So I get excited at this time of year when there’s so many awesome music festivals going on right here on my doorstep. […]

  • Review: Priscilla Queen of the Desert

    Prepare yourselves. The Priscilla tour bus is coming to Kent – woo-hoo! First the Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury (Mon 21 – Sat 26 Mar) then Orchard Theatre in Dartford (Mon 25 – Sat 30 April). My fellow Muddy editor over in Surrey has already seen it – here’s her exclusive Muddy sneak peak so you have plenty of time […]

  • Review: Annie, the musical, at the Assembly Hall

    My nearly nine-year-old is an Annie aficionado. She’s watched all three movies, bought the soundtrack, learnt the lyrics and perfected the art of feisty back-chat that would make our heroines in the orphanage proud. So she made the perfect companion and critic when I went to see Annie at The Assembly Hall, last night, on the first show of its five-day run […]

  • The Muddy Guide: Thurs 25 Feb – Weds 2 Mar

    Vogue 100: A Century of Style exhibition, National Portrait Gallery, London, 11 Feb – 22 May My fabulous, finger-on-the-pulse colleague Muddy Berks gave me the heads up on this one and I couldn’t wait to tell you about it. Having been at the forefront of fashion, beauty and portrait photography since its launch in 1916, British […]

  • Lesley’s stay young secrets!

    What does Lesley Joseph listen to before a big night out? Meatloaf’s Bat Out of Hell of course! She stole the show as Dorian on TV’s Birds of A Feather and continues to do so now the girls have reunited over 15 years later for another series. She’s also playing one of my all time favourite characters – song-belting, […]

  • The Muddy Kent half-term survival guide, Feb 16

    It’s half term already.  I know, it’s hard to believe.  Five minutes ago, we were picking pine needles out of the carpet – now it’s time to figure out how to keep the little darlings amused for a whole week again. Lucky for us, there’s loads of fun stuff going on across the county and beyond.  Indoors, […]
