Just posted a few photos on The Two Halves Facebook account

This may sound strange but tonight I had photos in my email inbox from Qatar of the sunset at Margate. The Sunset photos were taken from outside the @TheTwoHalves micropub overlooking Margate's beautiful harbour . I have posted the photos on The Two Halves Facebook account
Have a look at the facebook page, Shaun and Jackie have just heard that they have won the Thanet CAMRA pub of the year award and they will be presented at the Thanet Beer Festival which is being held again at Margate WINTER GARDENS March 30th and 31st of March 2018

Something for the weekend? Thanet CAMRA’s Pub of the Year 2018

I know the connotations of the expression but in this post it to do with The Two Halves micropub on Margates seafront right on the edge of the wonderful Old Town, and overlooking the Harbour. The Two Halves has just won Thanet CAMRA’s Pub of the Year 2018 and as always Shaun and Jackie will have something different to drink for the weekend hence the post title. (I pinched from their facebook page) To win this prestigious award from Thanets CAMRA has been a dream of Shauns but Jackie wont let it go to his head he is still the striker of the spile so he often gets soaked
I tried to find a shot of him striking the first spile when The Two Halves opened in 2015 but I must have put it somewhere safe so the above picture is from a post about the opening  CLICK HERE TO READ IT
So Something for the weekend refers to the brew or drink of your choice from Shauns ever changing choice of craft beer brewed by artisan brewers far and wide. Dont forget the artisan ciders wine and craft Gins.

Last week was winter this week it is SPRING

Last week I made an executive decision that I will not be going out of the house until June at the earliest! Now I am thinking the decision was made in haste, Blue Skies beautiful Sunshine maybe a rethink is required. I am now saying towards the end of May!

Voice100 Premiere at Turner Contemporary in Margate.

On Wednesday 7 March 2018 at approximately 6.20pm my latest sound installation VOICE100 will premiere at Turner Contemporary in Margate. Commissioned by POW Thanet for International Women’s Day, VOICE100 is a 5-channel spoken word sound installation that presents the changing experiences and perceptions of women since (some) women started to receive the vote in 1918. The work is created from 100 interviews I undertook with women, men and children aged 5-98 years.

The premiere is taking place during the opening night of POW! Thanet's week long celebration of women, with various art events taking place across Thanet. The opening starts at 6pm with a MASSIVE choir led by Emily Watts. The gallery will also be open late, so it's well worth popping down for an evening of art and fun. The full POW! Thanet programme is available here:

This event is free and you can just show up, but you are encouraged to obtain a free ticket from Brown Paper Tickets to enable POW to keep track of audience numbers.
