An early film

The Bradford Film Festival draws to a close after offering a mixed bag of entertainment and intellectual challenge. Me? I like to leave the theatre knowing I've got my money's worth. Starting with the extended chance to take in the atmosphere of the Pictureville Bar. Mainly because we arrived an hour early thanks to a typo in the programme! Still, the beer's good.

The 1925 silent and thankfully Lloyd-Webber-free version of The Phantom of the Opera was brought to sound by Cipher – a world premier, if you please! Saxophonist/flautist Theo Travis and bassist Dave Sturt were mesmerising with their subtle interpretation of the  classic melodrama. They're on tour – check out their website.

Today's lovely thing

When you expect to come home to an empty house – and he's come home early to cheer you up!
