Pre Oxjam Stuff / Fiver Film Club.

Just a couple of quick things. First, I filed a complaint to the PCC on behalf of the White Lion. I also emailed and tweeted the journalist in question, though she as yet to respond. I’ll let you know the PCC response. We’re pushing for a retraction of the on-line article and an printed/personal apology.

We have a very special film club at Cafe Roya tomorrow evening, with a local filmmaker responsible for some critically acclaimed documentary work dropping into show some of his work. Entrance is £5, and that includes, amazingly, a meal cooked up by Roya. If you’d like to join us, drop me an email at thebeestonian@gmail.com . It should be a fascinating (and belly-filling evening).

It’s also the most busy and terrifying week of the year for me as we enter the last few days before Oxjam. It’s been a long process, but hugely enjoyable. This is my third year I’e been involved and we’ve now become a bit of institution round town, with our distinctive pink tin badges worn en masse. There is so much going on we decided to put out a special Oxjam issue of The Beestonian, which we’ll have out in Beeston soon. If you can’t wait that long, we’ve got the online version up right now, have a gander here. I might also be popping up on radio here and there, keep an eye on The Beestonian Facebook page for info on where and when to hear my non-sonorous nasalings.

This might be the last blog post for a few days: Oxjam will be swallowing me up for a bit, and then I have just a day off before kicking off with another massive project: more on that later. If you have a burning issue you fancy getting out, send me an email with an your idea on it and I’ll host it up.
