Filling Up The Diary

by Russell Turner - 20:13 on 21 September 2017

There’s already lots to look forward to next year. Coming up are (not necessarily in order of importance) a second UK tour (and first album) by Yes feat. ARW, more City Limits gigs, and Rick Wakeman at Tintagel (if I can get a ticket). And there’s a tenth wedding anniversary, although no decision has yet been made on how or where it will be celebrated.

Matchgirl may anticipate different events, of course, although I hope our lists contain at least one in common.

But before those there’s another notable date. In February it will be ten years since we first enjoyed a luxury stay Boath House, so we’re to mark the anniversary with a night away. Good food, relaxation and no demanding cats. Perfect.

A couple of weeks before that, Strictly Come Dancing Live returns to Glasgow – and we have tickets. The prime spots had disappeared within minutes of going on sale at 8am yesterday morning, including the stage-side seats at a ridiculous £220, but we were still able to snap up two places close to the action for sensible money – much closer than last year when we were up in the gods.

A few disgruntled punters were chuntering on the SCD Live Facebook page because Sheffield is no longer among the venues and half an hour up the M1 to Leeds is just too far to travel. Lightweights.

It’s too early to say who’ll take part, but if Susan Calman’s not among the dancers there’ll be a riot.
