1.  Squib National Championship

From the Squib website: Two days of intensive rain seriously affected many of the seventy two competitors trying to reach Dartmouth for the National Squib Championships, including those from Weymouth who took seven hours by road to reach the regatta venue. Despite this, the Squib competitors were blessed by a magnificent sailing day in Start Bay on Sunday for the first races of the Championship, with good winds and warm sunshine.

The practice race in about 8 knots of wind did not get away until the third attempt under a black flag, and after a single lap of the 2.4 mile course it was won by Paul Aspinall in ‘Guy Falkes’. However winning the practice race amounts to nothing if you can’t win the Championship races.

We are sorry not to bring you any more local news as the guys don't seem to have a PR or Media feed.  But we all welcome them to the river, have fun and spend well guys!


2.  The Importance of Being Ernest

The Miracle Theatre is back with their take on the classic Oscar Wilde play ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ Thursday 19 July @ 7.30pm

In this high energy production Miracle adds an extra dimension to ‘the funniest play ever written’ Set in the year 1912, with the Titanic sinking, mass production just beginning on the Morris Oxford and the Turkey Trot causing outrage across the dance floors of polite society, this tale of the strange contents of a handbag found at Victoria station has been subtly adapted to extract every drip of humour and contemporary relevance.

Don’t miss our favourite professional Theatre company! Tickets are £12 and £5 under 18s. Pre show suppers available in the Flavel Arts Cafe for just £15 for 2 courses. To book, click here.
