Testes! Ego am finding this Latin mullarcius a bit of a dolor in the rectum! So I'll probably just restrict the old lingua latina to headlines from now on.
Any-old-quam, I hear that a date and name for the putative Ramsgate Arts Festival has finally been, er, finalised. So put 28, 29 and 30 August (August Bank Holiday weekend in old money) in your diaries for... da-dah... Summer Squall! Click on the pic to go to their websitium.
Quite what they'll be putting on, though, is anyone's guess. I'm thinking jugglers, fire eaters, wind sculptures and scary-yet-somehow-arty clowns. But what do I know? (Don't answer that). The Ramsgate summer season is filling up, what with the rotters at Thanet Council organising their own rival Monster Bass arts festival in the Millionaires' Playground, the possibility of an open air rock festival in the park, Ramsgate Week courtesy of the Shirley Temple Yacht Club, and another rock concert to go alongside powerboat racing in September.
I haven't heard much talk about Ramsgate Rocks though. Usually it's in July and diverts enough folding into the pockets of the bar owners on the front to keep them in Range Rover V8s with personalised number plates (class!) all year round!
