1 THEATRE Handbagged, Loft Theatre, Leamington, February 21 to March 3 Moira Buffini’s Olivier award-winning comedy looks behind the closed doors of Buckingham Palace to speculate what really happened in meetings between the Queen and Margaret Thatcher. The play interweaves politics with personality, lacing cutting exchanges with dry humour.
No-one who lived through the Thatcher years can forget their struggles: the passions, the hatred, and the commitment that divided Britain in those turbulent times. And such struggles: the end of apartheid (resisted by Thatcher); the IRA bombings (one of which nearly killed her and most of her cabinet); the miners’ strike; the poll tax; the Falklands war; Ronald Reagan. And through it all, two powerful women who, according to this play, had little in common and didn’t like each other much.
They join Malian music legends Amadou & Mariam and diverse array of alternative and innovative acts at the event, which is based near Tanworth-In-Arden and runs from Thursday July 26 to Sunday July 29. Tickets for the 5,000-capacity event will be released for general sale at 10am on Friday February 23. For the first time in its five-year history, the festival site will open up a day early exclusively to 500 weekend ticket holders on Thursday July 26.
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".
