Can I recommend the film Darkest Hour, starring Gary Oldman as Winston Churchil.  We saw it in Angouleme in the original version with French subtitles and it was excellent - a wonderful perfomance by Gary Oldman and the supporting cast:  wonderful!

Hi - can anyone confirm what an Association must do when they have live music?I believe there are fees to pay somewhere, to some organisation....   And is it the Association organising the event who pays - or the artists playing - or the mairie of the commune where the event takes place???

does anyone know where I can buy some indoors fireworks OR fireworks that are not rockets or bangers?  I live in a rural area -in the middle of harvest - with animals and children who are sound sensitive.  Guy Fawkes is coming up and this year I would like to indulge!   So..in the Charente/Charente Maritimes is there somewhere who can cater for the above.  Have tried Gifi (all bangers and rockets) and the mega fete shop at Cognac (same)any ideas would be welcome.

Have been using a Sky minidish since 2003 with FTA box and no problems until start June 2017. Thought the problem was ancient dish so thinking of replacing with new Sky minidish, but it seems these are now Zone 1 or Zone 2. Do I need to use a Zone 2 or will a Zone 1 dish work?  Looking at Amazon, seems both dishes are same dimensions (60cm x about 40cm) but perhaps the LNB is different. Any advice on this?

Does anyone know of cinemas in the POitou region that have the capacity to screen films in 70mm? Just been reading about Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk that is due to be released in a few weeks with the possibility of 70mm screenings.
