The story behind America’s newest supercar marque.

At this year’s Concours of Elegance at Hampton Court Palace, one entrant got my attention more than any other. It was a car I’d never seen before, by a marque I’d barely heard of. The car was the SCG 004S. The marque was Glickenhaus.

With my curiosity aroused, I really…

Down to a quartet thanks to Covid, Steps drew on every trick in the book to put on a spectacle, but behind the smoke and mirrors an endless succession of pop bangers only served to expose their onstage limitations in a production that all too often verged on pantomime

I first saw Steps nine years ago when they played the Brighton Centre. My overriding memory of that show was the fact there was not a single musician onstage and Steps just sang along to a backing track. Despite this, no one in the audience seemed to either notice or…

Exactly forty years to the day that they first played Brighton, OMD were back for more. Dad dancing aside, they put on a dazzling show.

It’s November 16th in Brighton and Liverpool’s OMD are in town to promote their latest album Architecture & Morality.

Fast forward forty years to the day and once again it’s November 16th and OMD are in town to promote that very same album.

The American baseball coach Yogi Berra once…

The much-acclaimed south London songstress certainly lived up to her name, bringing a joyous energy to a sold out Concorde 2

Sometimes you just instinctively know when something is special. My first exposure to Joy Crookes was on Spotify. I’d never heard her before, indeed I’d never even heard of her. …

Always great to shoot, a crimson wig and black leather bondage outfit, made Paloma infinitely more photogenic and produced a bunch of eye-catching images.

The first thing to say for regular readers is this isn’t a review of Paloma’s Brighton show. Let me explain.

Unlike most other music photographers, almost always, when I shoot a gig I’m also there to review it. Occasionally, however, I get a photopass, but not a review ticket. This…

After a Covid-induced year away, the classic cars and the dressed to impress crowds were back on track for a celebration of the bygone days of wheel-to-wheel racing.

I’ve been covering the Revival pretty much every year since 2009. It’s an event I really enjoy because there’s so much more than just the cars and the racing action to photograph. Revival is as much about the audience as it is about what’s happening in the paddocks and on…

With the first wholly organic show garden at Chelsea, Tom Massey brought a little bit of Somerset to Main Avenue. It was only natural that his garden also won the Peoples’ Choice.

In my review of this year’s long delayed Chelsea Flower Show, I made a point of saying that not only were there noticeably fewer show gardens on Main Avenue, but that my personal favourite was Tom Massey’s organic garden for Yeo Valley, Britain’s largest organic brand.

And it wasn’t just…

Finally, following a Covid-induced delay, the world’s premier horticultural show was back. And, for the first time ever, it took place in Autumn rather than Spring.

I’ve been coming to the Chelsea Flower Show every year since 2011. But in 2020, for the first time since the Second World War, it got cancelled because of the pandemic.

This year, the RHS took the unprecedented decision to further delay its most prestigious event from its traditional late…

Reflections on the most stylish cars on show at Hampton Court Palace

Today, the three-day Concours of Elegance has established itself as the UK’s premier Concours as well as one of the most prestigious in the world. Like many outdoor events, its location has a big part to play in…
