Restaurant reviews: Fusionz, Langley

I STARE reproachfully at the lime pickle nestling in its gleaming silver bowl, a menacing mix of green and brown. A huge fan of Indian food, lime pickle is the one dish that fills me with dread. A bad mouthful can leave you feeling like you've swallowed a lump of heavily spiced detergent, while a good one leaves your tongue tingling. I needn't have worried - this homemade sauce is delicate and delicious.

Reviewed: Macbeth at Reading Library with Quite Nice Theatre

A damp, dark and windy All Hallows eve, the night when witches walk and spirits speak to the living... What better night to watch a production of Shakespeare's spookiest (and most blood-soaked) play, Macbeth? By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes...

Reviewed: The Woman In Black at Theatre Royal Windsor

On Monday night I went to see the opening night of Stephen Mallatratt's stage adaptation of The Woman In Black at Theatre Royal Windsor. It was to be the third time I had seen this classic chiller and, knowing how terrifying it is, I was as excited and fearful as the first time round.

Reviewed: The Strange Case Of Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde

From the expertly crafted set to the actors' near-seamless movement between characters and the pitch-perfect music, Hull Truck's production of The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde is a stunning piece of theatre.

Reviewed: Exit Ten at Sub89

It's 9.05pm on Thursday, October 11, and we're backstage at Sub89. Exit Ten frontman Ryan is getting changed to go on and chatting about how much cheaper it is to rent a motorhome than a tour bus, as long as you don't mention that you're in a band. He's clearly very excited.
