Sunday September 1st Marcus Moore and I hosted our first 'Here Today' 8pm in the wonderful Star Anise Arts Cafe, Gloucester Street, Stroud. Nic Allan, the master-chef owner of the cafe welcomed us with his twinkling blue eyes, muscular apronned body and bottomless depths of kindness and helpfulness.44 people appeared ate drank chortled at the show and went home leaving us happy and relieved that this strange beast we had invented had been enjoyed and had legs. Our secret musician, Pete Rosser, was skilled & sweet and our mystery guest, Lis Parker, funny and fascinating.

Tuesday October 1st, a little less nervous, Marcus and I did our second 'Here Today' at the splendid Black Book Cafe , Nelson Street, Stroud. When we arrived to set up, Kelly, the friendly manager, was hoovering the expensive blue carpet that we and our guests pranced about on. 35 people appeared, ate cake, drank coffee and gasped and laughed at what unfolded. Our secret musician, Patsy Gamble, was mellow and magic and our mystery guest, Eliza Dewar, enthusiastic and enthralling.
