Spend some time at the market...

by mjmarble

Spend some time at the market in the center of town. Its not unlike or unique from markets throughout Europe, but it was just nice to paruse various British wares. Part of the whole take time and smell the roses thing...

Give this a miss

by LouiseTopp about Yummy's? More like Crappies!

Opposite the railway station is a Chiniese take away called Yummies, it has red letters written upon a yellow back ground. I have been to some Chiniese takeways in the past and they are very good, my friend works in a Chiniese resturant which has top marks; then we discovered this takeaway.

Last night we ordered some food because it was on our way home, we waited age's only to be told that we had been forgotten about!!

We will not be gracing the doorstep of this shop again, and will take our money elsewhere! Food was bloody awful and we didn't get what we ordered in the end, except probably food poisoning as it was only half cooked due to the fact of them trying to get rid of us in a hurry!

Stonehenge of course

by scott_txguy

Right around the winter solstice, the sun is really low on the horison all day. I was surprised how low it was. When taking photos, you MUST take this into account, even when overcast, as it will have the same effect as using really light sensitive film on a sunny day.

Good entertainment

by LouiseTopp

The City hall is a great venue, it hasn’t been there for many years. You can watch many tribute bands & entertainers performing here, & some of the shows are really good. There’s a large entrance hall just inside the entry which has the reception desk & restroom, round the corner is a bar while upstairs is the local radio station studios “Spire FM”. The actual stage is through a set of swing doors, there’s thought to be a ghost of a woman seen walking across the stage. There’s large speakers at the front & the projector room is up right at the back. Some of the people who have played here are:

• Paul Denials
• Tony Hadly
• En-Masse (Salisbury’s pop/soul vocal group)
• Maddy Prior (who plays Medieval music)
• The Band of H.M. Royal Marines
• Voulez Vous (Abba Tribute band)
• Australian Pink Floyd Show
• ELO (electric Light Orchestra)
• Blues Bands
• Serum Chamber Orchestra
• Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra
• Barry Cryer
• Spirit of the Dance (from Michael Flatleys River Dance)
• Rockin' on Heavens Door
• Nashville Nights & Dixie Days
• The Levellers
• Solid Silver 60's
• Ken Dodd
• Davy Jones (Monkees)
• The Bohemians
• The Sooty Show
• Derren Brown (did Mind control on Channel 4 in the UK)
• Joe Brown & Marty Wilde
• Joe Longthorne
• The Fureys & Davey Arthur
• That'll Be the Day!
Buddy Holly actually played here in 1958. There are facilities for the disabled, its a lovely place to go for an evening, & would recommend it to anyone.
