Live Music – Ameira: The Final Farewell

Normally I start these with my standard – On this day and this date Scunthorpe Nights went to this event etc. But I can’t this time because it was actually a Scunthorpe Nights event in association with SMB management.

Review – Funny Scunny Grand Final

Its been a long journey. We’ve laughed, we’ve laughed inappropriately, we’ve laughed because its not funny as much as it was and we’ve seen some genuine talent. The Funny Scunny Grand Final at The Baths Hall on the Thursday the 27th June was the culmination of the previous 3 knock-out heats. And the billing was…
