1.   Boats on the river

Andy Kyle reports this strange trihull trisail boat near Warfleet, it isn't a joke, but what on earth is it?  Tony Pike took the Classic Craft at the top of the news and the one at the bottom of this news, he commented "if ever I saw a boat that could replace the Charlotte Rhodes, this would be it".  Come back "Son of Onedin Line" ?


2.   Vicky Cristina Barcelona tonight!

Dartmouth Film Society's final film for the summer season is VICKY CRISTINA BARCELONA directed by Woody Allen and starring Penelope Cruz, Scarlett Johannson and Javier Bardem.

At its heart is a complex web of desire between a brooding artist (Javier Bardem), his hysterical wife (a show-stealing Penelope Cruz) and two Americans - one straight-laced (Rebecca Hall), the other more sexually and romantically adventurous (Scarlett Johansson) - on a European mission to find themselves.  Set in Barcelona, discussions about life, love and the Spanish guitar abound, gallons of rioja are drunk and much paint is thrown around.

Guest tickets for sale in The Windjammer £3.30 from 7.30 - 7.55. Our bar in The Guildhall opens at 7.30 - the film to be shown at 8pm approx.

On Weds 29 July at 5pm  they have the new family friendly stand-up comedy show from Patrick Monahan for everybody aged 6 to 96. Lively, interactive and physical comedy from one of the country’s friendliest, cleanest and most charming comedians with music and probably a very big dog.

Patrick will be appearing again at 8pm with his brand new one hour stand up show ‘My Kind of People’ – featuring stories about his journey to find people like him – a non-drinking, non-smoking, Irish Iranian Teesider! Patrick impressed Flavel audiences as a Comedy Festival compere here 2 years ago so if you missed him then don’t miss this 2nd chance to see him in Dartmouth before he really hits the big time! With support from Alan Seaman, ‘Hot Potatoes and Common Vegetables’.

Then on Fri 31 July at 8pm the brilliant Australian storyteller Kent Valentine with the show he t
ook to Melbourne’s April Comedy Festival ‘How to Love Everyone’. A story about Star Wars, pigeons, and Weston-Super-Mare. He will be supported by Matt Price who as the regular Flavel Comedy Lounge compere never gets a chance to get a word in…..his debut solo show is hotly tipped for glory at Edinburgh catchily titled ‘My Girlfriend Was Beaten Up By a Small Time Wannabe Gangster and This is What I Did about It’. Not as bleak as it sounds, honest!
