Friday 29th January From Lady to Ladette...

 This morning at 7.30 I went Bananas with Andy and Mike who told me about their show, which they are currently touring and will be arriving on our doorstep in February Half Term.

Andy and Mike have known each other since they were 12 years old. They both grew up in Romford Essex and their love for performing started at the same drama group, where they wore the 'loudest' clothes known to man (ask anyone who was around then). For many years they have performed as a duo...'Annie and Fannie' in Cinderella, local radio, and various comedy sketches.

Over the past two years Andy has worked as a presenter for Cbeebies, and Mike has been pursuing a career in radio and new media.

It was great fun talking to them both and I will try to post the interview on my page sometime next week so you can listen again!

Andy and Mike’s Big Box of Bananas is at the Queens Theatre, Hornchurch on the 19th February @11am. Tickets cost £6.50 for children and £8.50 for adults. To book tickets, call the Box Office on 01708 443333 or book on line at www.queens-theatre.co.uk

It's in half term so why not treat the kids to a fun packed show full of imaginative writing and perfect comedy timing. This rib-tickling double-act have delighted youngsters across the country with this fast-paced, high-energy and charmingly chaotic show!

Then if that wasn't enough Dean Neill came in to chat with me at 8.30 about his new Protek Goalkeeping that he has been the mastermind behind its creation. Glove which is being launched on Sunday the 31st January at the Brentwood Center from 6pm .

Dean Neil, as well as being a goal keeper for a number of South East Essex Clubs, including Billericay Town, has successfully coached several keepers up to Football League standard and has ambitious plans for the future for an exchange deal between some of his students and top young goalkeepers in Italy.

A number of top Footballers will be at the launch including Ipswich’s current number two stopper Ian McLoughlin and Ex-Gillingham skipper Paul Smith and Vince Bartram, on Portsmouth’s coaching staff, will also be there to help make it an unmissable night for all those with an interest in the art of goalkeeping.

If you can't make it to the exhibition you can find full details on Dean Neil’s development of the glove on the website www.rosareth.com or phone him on 07960 350514.
