This December i am doing something a bit different... Join me and the sofa city players at St Denys Boat Club for a haunting show based on the poem "The Raven" by Edgar Allen Poe plus ghostly tales from Michael O'Leary. Book your ticket for an evening of theatrical musicality, and celebrate Christmas in a traditional spooky way!
Whilst the club is shut, you have some time to watch some YouTube videos..

The Marine conservation Society visited the boat club today, as part of their survey of non native species.

They found Bay Barnacles (Amphibalanus improvisus) from North America, thought to have been brought over in the 1800s. And is the only barnacle that lives in estuaries.
Tube worms (Fincopomatus enigmaticus)which are originally found in the Southern Hemisphere but are now very common and thriving here.
