This is a one-hour truly immersive piece of theatre – audience involvement is a must during this hugely entertaining event. So we have the chance to take part in a snowball fight with the young Ebenezer Scrooge – after the cast hand out paper snowballs, and to dance up and down the beautiful former St Mary’s Chapel where the show is staged. We can sing along with the cast when they go a –carolling and munch mince pies and quaff mulled wine.
There are some excellent LBGT choirs in Brighton and Hove, but to my mind the gay men’s group Resound and their female counterpart Rebelles, are technically head and shoulders above the rest. In the last few years, the 2 choirs have come on leaps and bounds in their tonal quality, adventurous choice of music and confidence. Hope for the holidays – a new Hove, their latest offering – is no exception.
Calling himself “The Roving Typist”, C.D. Hermelin visits parks in New York City where he writes impromptu stories for strangers for a fee. Story patrons provide some ideas on what they’d like in a story and pay what they choose for the finished text. You can find out more about “The Roving Typist” in the short film below. If you’d like your own story, and can’t visit Hermelin in NYC, you can visit his website and order your own short story.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
