Does anyone know where I could hire festoon / garland lights for a party? I'd like to string lights in trees for a party planned at the end of September (the sort you see in streets in every town in summer or at Christmas!), but can't really afford to buy them... If you own any yourself, I'd be willing to pay to hire them also... Any advice gratefully received... Many thanks...  :o)

For anyone is interested in enjoying and supporting theatre in English, an engaging and original play - The Charlie Question - is being premiered at the Festival Off d'Avignon from 7th to 16th July 2017, prior to its run at the Edinburgh Fringe in August. The show, produced and performed by "je ne sait quoi theatre" - an entirely self-funded student theatre company from The University of East Anglia in Norwich - takes a compelling new look at the way we perceive, understand and talk about freedom of speech in today's society. For more information concerning the show, performance times and tickets, please visit the following links: http://www.avignonleoff.com/programme/2017/the-charlie-question-s20735/ https://www.jenesaisquoitheatre.co.uk/the-charlie-question

Has AngloInfo changed its website? I find it much more difficult to navigate now and several of the links are deadends? Has anyone else found this? I have been using it for about 5 years and have always found it so helpful. Tks.

I would love to be able to pass on details to them for Bands that travel around France for weddings thats play Modern music/ blues/ jazz and swing and Harpists etc. For me to pass the details on I need to give them website details and maybe you tube recordings. Thank you x

G'day everyone,I have recently moved to Provence in Sillans-la Cascade and although I am Australian I was hoping to access some British TV while I am here, and for prospective guests. I purchased a TNTSAT decoder and after some initial research, have discovered that I will need to invest in a proper Freesat or Skybox decoder and install a minimum (?) 1.1 metre dish on my house.If anyone has had experience with purchasing these items for your house/ motorhome in the South, it would be greatly appreciated for you to drop me a message so I could have a better idea of what is required and what specifications are functionable.I realise it is much easier to access these features towards Paris, and the further south you go, the larger the dish and the higher the cost it is to install. Albeit, this is no different to any service in this region :PThanks in advance folks, once more your comments would be massively appreciated.Alex.
