Halloween at the Fox and Goose
Photograph by Patrick Trollope

IT was a dark and misty night as creatures of all sizes and shapes, over the age of 18 mind, came out to party on 31 October 2015, as the Fox and Goose Halloween Party "Dusk Till Dawn Special" took place. The venue, located on Cable St, is in the very heart of Southport Town Centre and both the Fox and the Bar opposite, The Ship and Anchor were heaving. Both had some fantastic bands on, which brought out quite a following. As it was Halloween, in the Fox and Goose, both bar staff and punters got into the spirit of things, dressing up and having fun. Even our Editor, Patrick, dressed up, taking our stage props to the bar, fitted like the Electric Chair… Interestingly, we have a best costume competition running, with the best costumes of the night being selected by our monster squad at the venue and then photographed on the chair… If you like one of the costumes on our Facebook Page competition section, click on the like button and the best costume will be announced in the next edition! Also on the night was a fantastic competition run by the bar, giving out a prize of £66.60 to the best costume that they had selected on the night! Winner and 2nd and 3rd place can be seen above and also on our photographic coverage page, by clicking on here, plus many more photos. Adding to the awesome atmosphere was the local not for profit group, MakeItWorkshop CIC, who are based in Cambridge Walks, Southport. 1 of the volunteers from the group helped those in costume and those without by offering some fantastic stage make up... Then you also had the fantastic Wigan based, classic Rock Covers Band, Road-Hog, who delivered a stellar performance throughout most of the night… Not only that, but the bar also held a few charity collections as well… Did you attend? If you did, please do let us know what you thought of the night via emailing us to:- Keep an eye out for more Fox and Goose, Sound Lounge updates soon… they are cooking up some more amazing things as Christmas and New Year Approaches. All 3 venues on Cable St, are quickly becoming the place to be, with fantastic staff, plus friendly customers, just what is required for Southport's Nightlife!

Southport Grand Bonfire & Firework Display 2015

A dazzling show was delivered at this year's:- 'Southport Grand Bonfire and Firework Display,' which was hosted by Southport Hesketh Round Table. The event was extremely well attended and all the patrons we spoke to said that this was the best yet, and we cannot disagree. Apart from the Guy falling off the bonfire, everything appeared to have gone to plan and we will have some video footage online for you, via our Facebook page very soon, plus in the next edition, lots of photographs for you to parade though…  This year's event was sponsored by Champion Accountants. The compere for the night was Andy Gilbert, from Sandgrounder Radio (Southport Radio). To find out more about Round Table group number 1199, please visit their website.
