Interview with The Hamburg Express

About a week a lady from the Hamburg Express (online newspaper) contacted me about doing and interview for a new weekly feature they have started. Needless to say I was totally over the moon about it. She said she read my store reviews on Qype and it piqued her interest. The interview was posted today and will run for a week. Here is the link,

I found this link to the site where UK citizens living abroad can register for a postal vote so thought I'd share it here:

Not sure whom I'm going to vote for, but I suppose I ought to!

Much Ado About Nothing - a great success!

Much Ado About Nothing, by William Shakespeare, directed by Carol McNamara, was a great delight and proved that a Shakespeare comedy isn't the hard fare that people imagine if it is approached in the light-hearted vein in which it was written. Audiences loved it, as was proven by our average sales of 84%, and our crowning glory was Jasper, a lovable, well-behaved English Springer Spanial and excellent acting dog! Wit, wickedness, song, dance and a happy end - what more could you want!

British Day donates 22,500 Euros to charity

British Day in Hamburg is always a resounding celebration of German-British friendship, but it also serves a further good cause. The 14,000 visitors who enjoyed the daytime programme and the British Day Open Air Proms Concert on 5 - 6 September at the Hamburg Polo Club helped raise 22,500 Euros for charity, bringing the total donated over the past 19 years to more than 350,000 Euros.

Cheques were handed over by British Day initiator Peter Rogers at a reception at the Anglo-German… Continue

Great start to A Christmas Carol

Well, our audiences seem to like it - standing ovations, endless applause and best of all, beaming bright faces leaving the theatre! Tickets are selling extremely well and are hard to come by in the second week. One of our greatest successes, it seems! Who would have thought that having 36 people on stage in a production could run so smoothly. Many thanks to our director Rebecca Garron, assistant Julia Weitschat and our wonderful musical director Florian Miro, not to mention all the… Continue

Opel Dello carpark no longer available for theatre patrons!

Our flyers have all gone out already, but the news is that patrons of Theater an der Marschnerstraße are no longer able to use the Dello car park - it has been sold and will be redeveloped! So when you come to see our November production A Christmas Carol, bear that in mind. It might be best to come by train - U-Bahn Hamburger Strasse.
See you there!

Let me introduce myself ...

Hello Britain in Hamburg!

I'm John, as you will have gathered from my profile. I'm stuck back here in Birmingham, where I work for Birmingham City Council as part of the 'Excellence in People Management' programme. (I can bore you with the details on request.)

I have one foot in Hamburg because my fiancée has recently started working there and I'm looking to relocate as soon as I get a job.

My first two visits to Hamburg were school exchanges, and I enjoyed… Continue

Watch Mark Lyndon's take on British Day on RTL

For fans of British Day - or for that matter of British actor Mark Lyndon - this clip on the RTL Regional website is a must. Suzan Üner and her film crew spent most of Saturday (5 Sept) at British Day with Mark as their guide. What Hamburgers think of the British, what Mark thinks of the Scots and how Mark copes with a side saddle - it's all here, with a good dose of the humour we expect from the man who… Continue

Open air cinema tonight

es heißt, dass allein der Flügelschlag eines Schmetterlings das Wetter beeinflussen kann. Ob Sprichwort oder Lehrsatz aus der Chaostheorie, festzustellen bleibt, dass auf Wettervorhersagen kein großer Verlass ist. Dementsprechend werden wir nach den Unwetterwarnungen für gestern, die heutige Abschlussveranstaltung unseres Open-Air-Kino in der HafenCity definitiv vor Ort stattfinden lassen.

Wir freuen uns auf zahlreiche Besucher, eine ebenso tolle Stimmung wie am Donnerstag und einen… Continue

Due to bad weather warning tonight’s open air sneak preview takes place in Streit’s Cinema

sämtliche Stoßgebete haben nichts genützt. Dunkle Wolken überschatten unser heutiges Open-Air-Kino in der HafenCity. Das ist mehr als ärgerlich. Nicht zuletzt weil der gestrige Auftakt mit "Slumdog Millionair" ein wunderschöner Event war.

Dennoch müssen wir der Unwetterwarnung für Hamburg Rechnung tragen und die heutige Open-Air-Veranstaltung leider absagen. Wir verlagern die geplante Sneak-Preview kurzerhand in das Streits Filmtheater am Jungfernstieg. Vorstellungsbeginn ist um 23… Continue
