Peep Show the final season: The end of a generation

Peep Show - Season 9

Now that the cynical, honest and hilariously awkward sitcom that is Peep Show has reached it’s final season, it marks the end of what was a witty satirical critique of the voyeristic, self absorbed modern naughties man.

Autumnal abundance: A novice’s guide to wild mushrooms


The season of autumn signifies the coming of rain, the end of summer and the impending inevitability of winter, but it’s not all doom and gloom.

Tramlines Music Festival: The Journey that became a Pilgrimage

It was Friday the 24th of July 2015, and that could only mean one thing; I was off to Tramlines ‘Inner City’ festival in Sheffield for the 4th year running. Bearing in mind that I live in the Home Counties around London, it’s quite a way to go, but boy is it worth the journey.

It was still the cheapest festival I have ever been to, and it remains so, even with this years ticket at £30 for the weekend. This year, for the first time; weekend tickets sold out.

After they had finished “cleansing” the country, it had ...
