REVIEW: Harry Redknapp speaking at Media Festival

Walking in to an already half-packed room filled with an excited crowd, the blue lit-up stage was ready in anticipation for Harry Redknapp’s casual entrance. Grabbing a seat fairly central to the stage, I heard muttering from the groups beside me about Harry’s time in the jungle: “Do you think he’ll talk about jam roly-poly’s,”…

Unknown artists, unknown venue, a known love for music

Cornwall isn’t popular for its music venues. Nevertheless, there’s a lot of (increasingly) well-known music that’s making its way down to the South West.
