Saturday 19 July 2008 - Saturday Breakfast Show

The Saturday Breakfast Show is a great way to start your weekend if you're looking to do something in the Brentwood and Billericay area - and beyond.

Listen out for those events and happenings in and around our district and quite often hear what they're about directly from the people who are involved.

Out and About with Phoenix FM is sponsored by Essex Farmers Markets and this week I spoke to local playwright Jill Woods, Gill Hagan organisor of a Pampered Chef event and Chris Brewer, Curator of the Cater Museum in Billericay.

Jill Woods is a local playwright who's play, Singles Night was being performed at the Little Theatre in Hornchurch in aid of the Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary.

Gill Hagan was holding Pampered Chef evening for keen cooks to try new recipes and buy new kitchen gadgets whilst raising money for the Saint Francis Hospice - not an evening to massage the chef's poor feet and manicure their nails, as I thought.

Gill has some more fund raising events lined up so no doubt we'll be hearing from her in the future.

Chris Brewer is the curator of the Cater Museum in Billericay High Street which reopened its doors after a £40,000 lottery grant enabled refurbishment and modernisation work.

The Mystery Voice this week was that of Alice Cooper who had been hosting the Classic Rock and Roll of Honour launch ceremony in London

The Blatantly Obvious Quiz asked the question 'In which month do Russian celebrate the October Revolution? The answer is of course, November.

And the Breakfast Brainteaser, what is black when you buy it, red when you use it and gray when you throw it away is Charcoal. Correctly identified by staff at The Hair Company in Crown Street. Well done, to them.
