The house I grew up in... was a semi-detached in Bolton with a nice little back garden leading to a farmer's field, so there were incidents of cows breaking into the garden on a regular basis.

One of the best reasons for travelling to Hinckley is to experience the annual pantomime at the enterprising Concordia Theatre, converted in 1972 from a derelict hosiery factory. This year's production of Sinbad the Sailor, devised, directed and costumed by John Hill, is a minor miracle. The audience marvelled at the strange alchemy that turned the efforts of more than 50 dedicated amateurs to pure gold, as precious as the ruby that Sinbad eventually recovers to ensure that all will be well.

Dress codes, as anyone who is aware of such things knows, are dead. Instead, a new, improved and rather more brilliantly diverse appearance is the order of the day at any half-glamorous event one might care to mention. Even the red carpet - for the past five years, home to an endless procession of strapless, corseted, fishtail gowns - has seen skirt lengths rise in recent months, and then fall, and then rise again, depending only upon the whims of the celebrity in question. There's no predicting what people may or may not wear these days, then. And that is a good thing.

In 1987 Vivienne Westwood, erstwhile queen of punk and grande dame of British fashion, entitled one of her most memorable collections Harris Tweed. "My whole idea for this collection was stolen from a little girl I saw on the Tube one day. She couldn't have been more than 14. She had a little plaited bun, a Harris tweed jacket and a bag with a pair of ballet shoes in it. She looked so cool and composed, standing there. Everyone around her was being noisy and rowdy but she looked quite serene. She looked lovely."
