First Listen to….Folding For You by Maisy Beth Crunden

The debut single from the singer was written for Andrew McPherson’s upcoming film Paper Cranes. Charmingly folksy in style, this debut single from the singer is certainly very delicate and sensitive that will perfectly enhance Andrew McPherson’s film that explores mental health, feeling lost, andfinding hope in isolation – just some of the themes that… Read More

REVIEW: evermore by Taylor Swift

This second surprise album from the singer/songwriter is a thoughtful continuation of Folklore.

Never has this been quite so strongly heard as it is on this latest album. For… Read More

REVIEW: Potted Panto, Streamed.Theatre

Highly energetic, Potted Panto is an immensely enjoyable family show that is a real love letter to pantomimes – reminding us just how much a part of British culture panto is in all its silliness and just… Read More
