Look out for a fantastic season of specialist art and children's films, theatre and dance over the coming months. October half term we have some Little Digger Events to look forward to with some Monstrous Tales and, a Limitless production of, Our House! The Musical which is promising to be a superb show! www.sandpittheatre.co.uk
We have plenty of exciting shows for our Little Diggers. Renowned children's companies such as Half Moon and Paddleboat Theatre Company will be bringing the forest and the outdoors to life, so don’t miss out!
If comedy is your thing then look out for Happy Idiot’s production of Not: Lady Chatterly’s Lover, with 5 star reviews from Edinburgh Fringe and all the dramatic looks you need for a hilarious night out.
Presenters, start your engines! With TIFF and "back-to-work" out of the way, the regular concert season rumbles to life, and, if our Editor's Opener can be trusted, "Seeking Synergies" seems to be the name of the game. Denise Williams' constantly evolving "Walk Together Children" touching down at the Toronto Centre for the Arts; the second annual Festival of Arabic Music and Arts expanding its range; a lesson in Jazz Survival with Steve Wallace; the 150 presenter and performer profiles in our 19th annual Blue Pages directory... this is an issue that is definitely more than the sum of its parts.

Happy Matariki! It has been an another action-packed term at Mangere College. Among the highlights featured inside the newsletter; the school hosted a fantastic Performing Arts Night, the winter sports season has kicked off, students have been able to take their learning outside the classroom on a number of field trips and we even have a new haka. So check it all out inside and stay safe over the holidays.
We may be well over half way through the year, but for me September almost feels like a new beginning. A chance to forget the sins of the summer (too much frivolous spending and ice cream) and look forward to the new season ahead.
This issue takes a look at those new beginnings from the start of the new school year, check out our education special on page 39, the autumn/winter theatre season and interior trends. It’s also our wedding special! We have 20 whole pages
dedicated to weddings across the East of England.
From page 67 you’ll find everything you need, to help plan your big day. However, before the weather changes there’s still time to enjoy the last of the summer events as we list the best festivals, fetes and foodie fairs taking place this month.
Have a great September
