Charities step up to provide Christmas cheer

As government progressively shrinks the welfare state, it is increasingly left to the voluntary sector to tackle the ensuing social problems. Again this year it is charities which will step into the gap to provide some Christmas cheer for families and individuals deprived of the resources to do it for themselves. Nick Terdre reports.

Shapes of things to come

It’s hard to miss artist Ben Browton around town. These days, he is sometimes known as Agent Orange, the persona behind the TOXIC project. He has also been Sister Bendy on Eurotrash, and a member of a tranny punk band called Candy Darling. But back in the heady days of punk, Ben was the singer with a legendary band called The Shapes. They have reformed and are currently touring the country on the You’ll Do Yourself A Mischief tour, which ends at The Union Bar on Saturday 14 June.
