The comic-book scene in France is like nothing anywhere else in the world. Here it is dubbed The Ninth Art, and enjoys book sales comparable to that of the national literary market. While in the UK and America our knowledge of Franco-Belgian comics may extend only as far as Asterix and Tintin, the fact is there are thousands upon thousand of titles covering a whole range of genres and sub-genres for […]
The trouble with traditional Nativity plays is they tend to be rather dull. Everyone knows the story, there are no surprises, plot-twists or jokes – which hardly makes for a very Merry Christmas!

Nine entertaining plays featuring Mary, Joseph, The Three Kings, Scrooge, Santa, Rudolph, […]

Recent news shows that my work earlier in the year for Association Babelle has paid dividends – and the team there are now gearing up to realise their dream of opening a Hammam (Spa) in central Strasbourg. The location of the Spa is to be the Palais des Fêtes – an old brasserie and architectural […]
