I thought the Elvis fan festival would be funny. It cracked me open and changed my life | Meg Watson
In my cynical early 20s, I thought the fandom would make for a novel story. But the community’s joy was so contagious I ended up joining itIt’s often said that watching Elvis Presley was a religious experience. He sent women into fits and presided over his disciples, singing gospel and gently blessing them with silk scarves. I’m not a religious person but in 2016 – 39 years after Elvis died – I saw the neon light.This was also, not coincidentally, the year I gained sympathy for journalists who pursue stories about cults which they then end up joining.

Cyrano de Bergerac review – James McAvoy is fierce in radical reboot of romantic classic
Playhouse, LondonVisual flummery and the famous nose are dispensed with in Martin Crimp’s modern take on Rostand’s proxy-wooing playThis version of Edmond Rostand’s play, as adapted by Martin Crimp and directed by Jamie Lloyd, is not exactly Cyrano as we know it. It may not even be as we like it. But I found myself gradually warming to this radical deconstruction of Rostand’s heroic comedy and totally captivated by James McAvoy’s performance as the swaggering Gascon.We are supposedly in a French theatre in 1640. What we actually see is a cast in modern dress who frequently line up across the stage using hand or stand mics. We still get the familiar story of Cyrano’s proxy wooing of Roxane by putting words into the mouth of the inarticulate Christian. But, although endless jests are made about Cyrano’s conk, McAvoy doesn’t sport the usual false appendage. While driven by doubts about his ugliness, this Cyrano is also arguably the best-looking man on stage. So what is going on? Continue reading...

Wigan’s Ian Lenagan calls RFL’s dealings with Bradford Bulls a ‘festering sore’
• Warriors’ owner calls for greater transparency• Concern centres on RFL’s purchase of Odsal Stadium leaseThe Wigan Warriors owner, Ian Lenagan, has conceded that there is a need for transparency in the Rugby Football League’s historical dealings with Bradford Bulls amid growing calls for an independent inquiry into rugby league’s governing body. The sport’s professional clubs will meet later this month for their annual Council meeting and the RFL’s handling of Bradford is firmly on the agenda.Several clubs at all levels of the professional game remain unhappy with the RFL’s past involvement with Bradford, which includes the governing body in 2012 paying a seven-figure sum to buy the lease of their home ground, Odsal Stadium – a venue which now sits empty after the Bulls decided to play their home games out of the city in 2020. In a recent meeting of lower-league clubs numerous representatives pushed for the governing body’s handling of the matter to be put on the agenda at the Council meeting. Continue reading...
