1.  BRNC Big Band : Tonight !

The Flavel will be swinging to the sounds of the BRNC Big Band tonight.

Last heard in Dartmouth back in November at the brilliant ‘Strictly’ evening, the Big Band’s programme for their fund-raising concert at the Flavel will include popular Glen Miller classics as well as more contemporary numbers by the likes of Michael Bublé. The vocalists for the evening will be the excellent Mick Jones and Caroline Barton.

The Big Band is made up of members of the multi award-winning BRNC Royal Navy Volunteer Band, under the direction of Phil Watson. This is the band’s third concert in support of the Flavel, in what has become a February hardy-annual. All proceeds will go to the Flavel Arts Centre.

The concert begins at 7.30pm and tickets are £8 and £5 (under 18). A Pre-Show Supper can also be enjoyed in the Flavel Arts Café - 2 courses for £12, (£8 for under- 18s). Advanced booking is essential. For supper bookings and tickets call the Box Office on 01803 839530. Tickets are also available online by clicking here.


2 Social Media and Facebook

The aim of the Dartmouth dot TV crew is to market Dartmouth as a sustainable quality tourist destination and to "Keep Dartmouth Special". We are successful in doing this on quite a modest budget, and sometimes out of our own pockets.

About 15 years ago it was sufficient to send holidaymakers a small and mostly colour brochure, but then the internet came along and a web site was de-rigueur.  But now some say that websites are passé and Facebook is everything.  Not quite, but it's certainly looking that way.  Obviously we have our own highly successful website crammed with photographs, news and where to stay, eat and play, click here to see it.

But what about Facebook ?  Dartmouth dot TV runs the largest Dartmouth Facebook page by quite a large margin.  Facebook co-operates with us and helps promote our page.  This week we ran a feature entitled "Lazy Sunday Afternoon : An hour ago in Dartmouth" that achieved over 15 thousand views and is increasing right now!  Before that we did a feature on the new Dartmouth In Bloom ( DiB ) and had even more views at 21 thousand.

But the stunner is the article we published on Dartmouth earlier this month called " Spring is in the air ! Lunchtime in Dartmouth today" where we got a certified 57,806 views, yes nearly sixty thousand !  You can see it by clicking here.

So many views and such high visibility will drive holidaymakers to Dartmouth without a doubt.  If you are a Dartmouth Business you really ought to advertise with us, or at least sponsor us with a small financial donation please?  Click here to help us help you and Dartmouth.


3.   Untouchable (Intouchables) : Tonight !

Directors: Oliver Nakache, Eric Toledano : Actors: François Cluzet, Omar Sy : 112 minutes : Cert. 15. Biography/Comedy/Drama

‘An irreverent, uplifting comedy about friendship, trust and human possibility, Untouchable has broken box office records across Europe, and is to be France's entry for the best foreign language film Oscar in 2013.’ It's a polished account of the odd-couple friendship between Philippe (François Cluzet), a rich, handsome, cultivated quadriplegic, and his new carer, Driss (Omar Sy), an intelligent, charismatic, uneducated young working-class West African who has done time for robbery. Philippe loves Bach and Schubert, nights at the opera and extreme sports…. Driss is more of an Earth, Wind and Fire man. What draws them together is their total honesty, (Driss never sees Philippe as an object of pity), sense of humour, shared appetite for life and contempt for stuffy bourgeois hypocrisy and the general gaucheness of nearly everyone around them. They are mischievous, incorrigible…… and inseparable.

This film is on tonight.  Films are screened at The Guildhall, Victoria Road, Dartmouth. The bar is open from 7.00pm and the films start at 7.30pm Guest tickets are available on the night for £4.00 each from “The Windjammer” Victoria Road between 7.00pm & 7.25pm only. No guest tickets will be sold on the door. For more information call Clive Osborne on: Tel. 07968 026449
