AUSSIE BUSHFIRE FUNDRAISER
As an Aussie I'm devastated by the terrible bushfires in Australia, and so we are hosting a fundraising presentation of the episode "Southern Double-Cross". Set Down Under at "Kangaroo Downs", the episode has kangaroos, 'Outback justice" and criminal accents. Join us at the Half-Moon Putney on Tuesday 25 February. Tickets are £12 and all proceeds to the Cobargo Community Bushfire Recovery Fund. 
CABOT COVE ON THE BIG SCREEN
If you missed "If It's Thursday, It Must Be Beverly", we're presenting it in all its pastel pink glory on the huge screen at the Prince Charles Cinema, Leicester Square on Thursday 20 February. Witness the brilliant sex scandal that engulfs the Cabot Cove Salon, in wide screen! 
JB COMES TO OXFORD
Very excited to be bringing the show to Oxford for the first time, to the glorious venue Freud. Set within an old church with dramatic high ceilings and moody stained glass, Freud Oxford is the perfect fit for the classic episode "Broadway Malady". Tickets on sale now for the Wednesday 26 February event
FABULOUS FAN GIFTS!
Three lovely fans have donated gifts to me in the last month! Pauline at the Stage Door in Southampton presented me with a glamorous fan, perfect for episodes set in sunny climes. And fans Ursula and Celestine presented me with a handbag - a vital JB accessory I had somehow neglected to include with my costume. The handbag premiered at the RVT this month - thank you!
RETURN TO THE CUBE CINEMA
Our first show at the adorable Cube Cinema in December was a sell-out hit, so we're delighted to be returning on Friday 21 February with "If It's Thursday, It Must Be Beverly". The compact cinema only seats 100 and 70 tickets have already been sold, so get in quick!
MURDER, HE REVIEWED
Welcome to the first of my mini-book reviews, of tomes that celebrate all things Cabot Cove. This fun memoir by one of the creators of the show has some nice insights into the show, in particular the casting of Angela Lansbury as JB Fletcher. Fischer was unconvinced at first, because the actress was better known at the time for playing hard-nosed characters or harridans! (He changed his mind when he met her in person, thankfully!). 
CALENDAR FOR MAMA ROUX'S 2020
Birmingham venue Mama Roux's is a stalwart venue for the show, and we're excited to announce the 2020 dates for the show: Thursdays 26 March, 25 June, 20 August and 5 November. Tickets are sold through Native.fm and will be on sale soon.
NEW FANGELA VIDEO
I put together a video made up entirely of photos taken by fangelas that were posted on social media! It only goes for a minute - but have a look and see if you're in the final cut. Thanks fangelas! 
C'EST MAGNIFIQUE AT THE RVT
The home of Solve-Along, the historic Royal Vauxhall Tavern, played host to the premiere of the "Parisian" adventure "A Fashionable Way to Die" this month and it was hilarious. Thank you to everyone who contributed their je ne sais quoi to the evening. If you have another international episode you'd like to see, email suggestions to solvealonga@gmail.com. The next RVT show has only 30 tickets left, with the new episode announced soon!
SOUTHAMPTON BEHIND BARS
The Stage Door Southampton gets tough on Saturday 14 March, with the episode "Jessica Behind Bars". Watch JB get caught up in a riot (and then a murder) at a women's prison, for this girls-only episode that proves that Fletcher is the new orange is the new black. Book soon here!
