  • Big finale for BRASS 2014
    The streets of Durham City were alive with the sound of brass as hundreds of people flocked to enjoy the atmosphere at the grand finale of BRASS 2014. Brass: Durham International Festival came to an end on Sunday, with some of the country’s best street bands performing a cover of Walking on Sunshine as part of Streets of BRASS. More than 30,000 attended 119 events and performances during the 10-day celebration of County Durham’s musical heritage and culture, developed and delivered by Durham County Council. This year’s packed programme included three world premieres – British Sea Power’s Sea of Brass at Gala Theatre; Fractal Sparks at Durham Cathedral, featuring music from Jo Hamilton and a brass-inspired set from Lanterns on the Lake; and Steamsong, a multimedia opera by award-winning composer John Kefala Kerr. The festival also provided the opportunity for young people to enjoy performances by world-class musicians at local schools; while audiences of all ages were invited to join in the fun at community centres and village halls across County Durham as part of BRASS’ community tour. Cllr Neil Foster, Durham County Council’s Cabinet member for economic regeneration, said: “BRASS always brings a fantastic atmosphere to Durham, with an exciting and intriguing mix of collaborations, live performances and street entertainment. “I’m pleased that this year has been another resounding success, with sell-out shows at Durham Cathedral and Gala Theatre and the crowds turning out in force for our outdoor events. “Once again, the musicians have gone out of their way to put on a performance and audiences have really shown their support.”
  • I-Spy fun at Killhope
    There’s plenty for little eyes to spy at Killhope: the North of England Lead Mining Museum this summer. Eagle-eyed young visitors are being challenged to spot a range of artefacts, wildlife and exhibits thanks to a new activity book. The museum now has its own I-Spy guide to help inquisitive youngsters make the most of their day at the museum. The 64-page colour pocket book features dozens of pictures complete with descriptions. Children are encouraged to try and spot all of the items and record them in the book in order to score as many points as possible so they can achieve an I-Spy certificate. Shelagh Connor, Killhope visitor services officer, said: “Everyone loves to play I-Spy so we’re really excited to have our very own book dedicated to all the exciting things you can see at Killhope. “The book is packed with dozens of pictures of interesting items, exciting exhibits and fascinating artefacts as well as lots of animals, plants and flowers, so it should a good challenge for children to spot everything.” Copies of the book are available from the museum shop for £2.50.

  • A Chorus Line brings Broadway to Durham
    Budding Broadway performers will be competing for a chance to dance when A Chorus Line comes to Gala Theatre next month. Students from Gala Theatre Stage School (GTSS) present their version of the classic musical from Tuesday 5 to Saturday, 9 August. Set during auditions for a new Broadway show, A Chorus Line provides a glimpse into the lives and personalities of a group of hopefuls desperate for the chance to take to the stage. The characters come from a variety of backgrounds and have varying levels of talent but for all of them this is the chance of a lifetime. During interviews with the show’s director they all gradually reveal the events that have shaped their very different lives. Kate Sorahan, GTSS director, said: “For the past four years, GTSS has brought huge musicals to the stage in Durham, bringing audiences to tears with their productions of Les Miserables, Miss Saigon and West Side Story and getting them dancing in the aisles with Grease. “This year, we thought it was time we stripped everything right back with a show that gives the performers the chance to really demonstrate their amazing talents. “With a minimal set and simple costumes, A Chorus Line puts the cast ‘on the line’ by focusing attention on their acting, dance and singing technique rather than elaborate costumes or a lavish set. “It has been a difficult process at times as the dance routines and vocal harmonies are very demanding but, yet again, the cast have pulled out all the stops and worked incredibly hard to produce a show that really is musical theatre at its finest.” Based on true stories, A Chorus Line opened on Broadway in 1975 and enjoyed unprecedented success, winning nine Tony Awards as well as the 1976 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the New York Critics’ Circle Award. The original production ran for more than 6,000 performances, becoming the longest-running production in Broadway history at the time. It is still the sixth-longest running Broadway show of all time. With brilliant songs, great drama and stunning choreography, A Chorus Line is a musical masterpiece not to be missed. Tickets are priced from £12.50 to £16.50. To book, visit Gala box office, call 03000 266 600 or go online at www.galadurham.co.uk

  • Speeding Cars & Double Parking, 14th July
    There is a serious issue with cars speeding through the estate. Turning into my drive I have nearly had the back end of my car taken off by someone going too fast. This is an accident waiting to happen and I am surprised a child has not already been knocked over. Also in areas of the estate there is an issue of cars double parked. This is to the extent you can not see around the corners what is coming until it is too late.

  • Ragwort flowering, 10th July
    From Guide Post Corner to the A66 a number of flowering Ragwort plants have appeared. Ragwort is a noxious, notifiable weed and the landowner has a responsibility to remove it when notified of its presence. Durham County Council is the landowner. It's likely that the next few weeks will see it flowering on both sides of the A66 Westwards to the County boundary. The Highways Agency is the responsible authority for this section of road.
    Nearest road to the pin placed on the map (automatically generated by Bing Maps): A67, Bowes

  • Speeding cars on egglestone drive onto holwick close, 10th July
    I live on holwick close on a corner plot outlook onto entrance of egglestone drive. I again report the speeding cars in this area. Someone will be killed by this irresponsible behaviour. I have neatly had the back end of my car taken off when manoeuvring onto drive as cars speed around corner. Speed bumps are not a deterrent. Something has to be done here before a child is killed.

  • Dangerous overhanging nettles on South Street, 8th July
    On the west side of South Street near the bottom where I think it is the edge of St Margaret's churchyard, at this time of year the nettles have grown very tall and are beginning to droop down over the pavement. This makes walking down that pavement rather hazardous as the nettles, and some brambles, are sticking out a long way at head height. Could they please be cut back? There is a large batch at the top end of this wall, and odd ones or twos every so often as you carry on.

    Nearest road to the pin placed on the map (automatically generated by Bing Maps): 48 South Street, Durham

  • Potholes, 7th July
    M writing to you regarding the state of the road up at Rose Lea, Witton Gilbert. There is a huge amount of potholes and cracks in the road which is a major concern and hazard to the vehicles and children playing in the street. Due to this serious problem I have had to have repairs done to my vehicle. I would appreciate your full attention on this matter.

In the lecture, Dr Buckland will discuss two such figures from Scotland, the engineer Henry Dyer and the physician N. Gordon Munro.
