So sad to see another hard working small business turning the 'Closed' sign on the door one final time. As much as this is Shrewsbury's direct loss, it's also another shiny little light of enterprise snuffed out on every high street in Britain. After over 35 years of dedication and passion in quality independent retailing, we wish Graham and Nicola all the best for their future as they hopefully take a well deserved break and move onto a new chapter in their lives. ...

Global superstar Dame Joan Collins is set to tour the UK in September and October with her brand new one-woman theatre show Joan Collins Unscripted which hits Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury, on September 13.
This weekend visitors to Shropshire’s Stokesay Castle will be treated to a journey into the past as the castle comes alive with the sights, sounds and smells of Medieval England. The two day event will see a cast of colourful characters making Stokesay their home as they live and make merry in the castle grounds.
Over the Bank Holiday weekend renowned re-enactment group ‘The Harringtons’ will be setting up home in the beautiful castle grounds. Explore their medieval encampment, meet your 15th Century ancestors, try armour on for size, and find out what life would have been like for the castle’s garrison as they continue life away from the campaign.
History-hunters young and old will love stepping back in time, and seeing Shropshire’s medieval past come to life – all to the back drop of one of the best preserved Medieval manor houses in England.
Visitors can enjoy ‘Stokesay Stories – Medieval’ on Sunday 28 and Monday 29 August. Family entrance is £21.50, adults are £8.30, and children are £4.90. English Heritage members can enjoy reduced price entry.
