The Dawdle Hall Diary

Going Bananas!


Palm tree potty Lord Horatio here once more. Read how we are going red banana barmy down at Dawdle Hall and, despite the odd “paws” in growth thanks to Whimsy the dog, looking forward to the new wonder fruit gaining mass appeal.

Have a peek at Hats Off too and meet:

Opera singer Heather Main who serenades her winning racehorses

Rising stone skimming star Charlotte Greenway

Plus engineer Ray Middlesworth who saved London’s secret underground Mail Rail

And the team at Ohio University who have come with a tiny machine that repairs the body.

Heart and soul


Hot to trot Lord Horatio here. Read how my bid to ‘keep the faith’ during a big Northern Soul revival all-nighter at The Hall, courtesy of hip nephew Alexander, led to an agonising all dayer in bed! To savour the flavour of the occasion enjoy this vintage clip of how it should have been done courtesy of our YouTube pals and sensational Judy Street.
