John Godber first presented the show ‘Bouncers’ in 1984 at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Since then, many productions all over the UK have been shown with a revised 1990s theme. Queue the cheesy 90s music, Nicky Campbell hosting Radio 1 instead of ‘Long Lost Family’ and DJs with microphones who think they’re hilarious. The play itself revolves around four bouncers on the door of a nightclub and the kind of customers they’ll come across throughout the night. Just four actors…

Hollywood Ending is a pop-rock band formed in the summer of 2011. They earned their first break on Season 4 of Radio Disney’s Next Big Thing competition finishing in 3rd place. Since then, Hollywood Ending has already toured the US, Canada and parts of Europe and I got the chance to see them perform while supporting McBusted at the end of May. Before the band actually came on stage, a video was shown on the big screen of the band…

Personally, although I went to a boarding school founded by Henry VIII and attended chapel every morning before school, I am not 100% dedicated to Religion.  However, each year I…

The record stands at 930 pairs, but we know that we can beat that if we get as many schools as possible involved, and we’re planning to beat it…
