A play by Shelagh Delaney

Directed by Linda Kent

A Taste of Honey is set in Salford in North West England in the 1950s.

It tells the story of Jo, a seventeen-year-old working class girl, and her mother, Helen, who is presented as crude and sexually indiscriminate.

Helen leaves Jo alone in their new flat after she begins a relationship with Peter, a rich lover who is younger than she.

At the same time Jo begins a romantic relationship with Jimmy, a black sailor. He proposes marriage but then goes to sea, leaving Jo pregnant and alone. She finds lodgings with a  homosexual acquaintance, Geoffrey, who assumes the role of surrogate father.

Helen returns after leaving her lover and the future of Jo's new home is put into question.

Saddle up for a charity cycle for all abilities with the Willow Wood Mini Manc Bike Ride.
Tameside's Willow Wood Hospice is working alongside the Tour De Manc to offer the family friendly and short distance alternative so that everyone can get involved.
It takes place on Sunday 7 July from 10am at Tameside Cycle Circuit, Richmond Street, Ashton, OL7 9HG.
There are four professionally organised routes:
1-8km on a flat cycle track, ideal for young or inexperienced cyclists who can choose their distance on the day. From £5 to take part.
16km, mainly country lanes and quieter roads if you cycle for fun and fitness. From £5 to take part.
32km, more of a challenge, incorporating some testing hills. £15 to take part.
48 km, some significant inclines for those with stamina. £15 to take part.
You can sign up and get more information at:
The Tour de Manc itself, sponsored and supported by Tameside Council, takes place on the 5 May with the 104 mile long route travelling through all 10 boroughs of Greater Manchester. With over 9,000ft of climbing to complete, it's the ultimate challenge.
Tour de Manc is a charitable sportive - run 100% by volunteers, using cycling as a force for good to raise significant funds for registered charities.
For 2019, Tour de Manc has chosen as its lead charities: Royal Manchester Children's Hospital; Booth Centre, a Greater Manchester charity providing a day centre for the homeless; and HaTS, an independent charity which supports the patients and the families of the Haematology and Transplant unit located in Manchester's Christie Hospital. Riders also have the opportunity to ride for charities of their choice.
Tameside Council's sustainable travel officer, Michael Hughes, said: "We're delighted to support this fantastic event, which offers something for everyone to get involved in and will have a wonderful atmosphere. As well as raising significant funds for good causes, cycling is a great way of getting fitter and healthier and a sustainable way to travel."
A Willow Wood spokesperson said: "We're proud to once more partner with Tour de Manc to provide the very best cycling experience for our supporters. There are four routes so whether you cycle for fun or fitness or like a real challenge, there'll be one that's right for you. And while the distances are shorter, the routes incorporate some significant hills to test stamina. All routes will be well signed and there will be a mechanic out on the roads for minor repairs. Come rain or shine, saddle up for what will be a great event."

FOR anyone who has a little Peter Pan about their character, and has never fully grown up, the new exhibition at Portland Basin Museum should be a real treat.

Items on display include books, jigsaws, card and board games, dolls and teddies, as well as much-loved classics ranging from Scalextric, Lego, My Little Pony, Cabbage Patch Dolls, Toy Story and Thunderbirds through to Atari and gaming memorabilia.
There will also be a fun interactive area with lots of games and toys to play with, and a dressing up area for children.
Portland Basin Museum, which is in Portland Place, Ashton, is open 10am to 4pm, Tuesday to Sunday. Admission is free. For more information call 0161 343 2873.
