  1. Everything you need to know about Pirates

    With Harry Paye day fast approaching, this year’s event will take place on Saturday 20th June down at Poole Quay and through the town itself, we though it was high tide that we took a look at some of the fascinating facts about pirates.

If it's got the blood pumping for a fun family day out then join us for Harry Paye day you won't be disappointed. The fun will begin at midday and run until 6pm.

There will be cannon, musket and fencing displays taking place throughout the day for you to enjoy too. There really will be something for everyone including the little ones, with children’s fun fair rides and competitions for them to take part in.

    Christmas has come and gone and once again the New Year will roll around before any of us have time to properly play with our presents. As far as television is concerned, you may be wondering what’s coming up on the night itself and how you’re going to prepare for it. Fear not, for the research has been done for you! BBC New Year Show The BBC will, as ever be hosting live coverage of all of the New Year’s events, including the London Fireworks. A series of big names from the world of music are sure to be present, along with what is sure to be a rousing rendition of Auld Lang Syne. Jool’s Holland Hootenanny Show It wouldn’t be New Year television without Jools Holland’s annual offering. This one promises to maintain his typical high standards, with performances from a diverse range of musicians. This promises to have something for everyone and a healthy smattering of music you won’t have heard before. Channel 4 Channel 4’s offering is hosted by Alan Carr and includes guest appearances from James Corden, Keith Lemon, Ben Cohen and Abbey Clancy.  This will be a party, with stand-up, along with music from Professor Green.
