That was 2010, then …

23Dec10

If you’re in Bristol or Bath, you might want to get the bumper Christmas two-week special edition of Venue, which comes complete with all manner of things, including a review of the news and ishoos of 2010 Round These Parts, some of it by me. You can indeed read some of it on the Venue website. For the full Director’s Cut, though, which comes complete with a lot of lists, you need the mag. Here’s a flavour,though; some of my favourite local media headlines from 2010:
