On the Arts front Applause has been designing CD covers and duplicating CDs for Alphonse Daudet Touna African Jazz band HéLéLé for a number of years producing 3 titles to date.

Alphonse plays a balafon (an African marimba) he made himself. The rich balafon melody creates another style of afro jazz through a mix of forest rhythms such as Assiko, Bikoutsi, Makouné, Makossa and Bolobo.

The concerts they play are spontaneous and alive. Full of vibration and energy, the band elevate the crowd through the body language of dance. And for the mind, great solos are weaved within the framework of rare grooves and percussion.

Pensford Wine Festival

On the back of the Pensford Beer Festival which had its first outing in July 2008 and proved to be a roaring success the organising committee, as well as now planning the second beer festival, have organised the first Pensford Wine Festival to be held on the 14th of March in a few weeks time.

John Durston of the West of England Wine & Spirits Association has been persuaded to put together tutored tasting of new and classic wine styles and this will be followed by an evening of entertainment and tastings of around 30 of his specially selected favourites from around the world.

Applause had produced the Beer Fest website last year and were asked to produce the Wine Festival site together with promotional leaflets and posters plus display graphics for the event itself.  It is fair to say we rather like jobs like this can you guess why!?

If you hail from around Pensford, South Bristol or North Somerset checkout the information on www.pensfordwinefest.co.uk
and make a beeline for this not to missed event.
