Leicester Curry Awards hits a new high with a tasty event

The Leicester Curry Awards 2018 took place at Athena for the second year running. It was an enjoyable evening featuring high quality food, entertainment from Leicester's Got Talent winners and of course the highlight - seeing the awards go to the city's best restaurants and takeaways and raising the awareness and quality of Indian food throughout the county.

The awards now switch to Toronto, Canada, for the first ever award of this type in the country. If the evening goes anything like it has in Leicester, it will be an enormous success and a tribute to the small team at Pukaar News who organise it.

Remploy handbooks

Remploy is the UK's leading disability specialist supporting disabled people into mainstream employment. These workbooks have been produced for disabled people, those with health conditions, and employers to help build careers, not just fill job vacancies.

I found this on YouTube the other day. It's a video from an exhibition I put together, 'More Than Two Tones' at the Herbert in Coventry a few years back. I remember it well - especially what was achieved on such a small budget!







Nick designed and built this collapsible travelling art stand for artist/poet

Tanny Tizzle to use at an arts event in Birmingham. The display was designed to be collapsible, transportable and take up little space when stored. The panels use foamboard that can be doodled on, painted, pinned into and taken out to be hung or framed.

See some images of it in action.

What I'm listening to...

Thursday 21 June

Currently listening to Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino by the Arctic Monkeys. Not sure about Alex Turner's new goatee look, but this is a stripped down version of the Monkeys - with the band taking a backseat to Turners vocals. A more muted album, less rock, more LA where Turner now lives and much closer to the Last Shadow Puppets in sound.

Love it!

Also listening to:

Speech Debelle - Tantil Before I Breathe

Mary Casio - Journey To Cassiopeia

London - Slowly Rolling Camera

Shadow Works - Mammal Hands

Thursday 21 June

I'm curently working on a book for Reggie, my father, who will be 100 years young in August. The book is all about my father's life since he was born in 1918, his experiences growing up in Aston, Birmingham, working as a Letterpress printer, and his time in India and Burma during World War II. It is a fascinating story and I am in a bit of a rush trying to get it finished and printed in the little time I can find to work on it!

At the moment, it's 1940 and Reggie has joined the Welsh Borderers Regiment at Glanusk Park in Wales!
