United Kingdom:

Toby Hadoke's stage show Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf arrives in Neston on 30th March, and students from the local high school helped promote the event by dressing up as the Doctor and a Weeping Angel to 'frighten' shoppers at Sainsburys! [AboutMyArea, 9 Mar 2012]

You can find a list of Toby's performances around the country in our earlier news item. Toby has notified us of an error that crept in:
Sorry, the incorrect information was sent out about Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf. The gig on 31st March is not in Bradwell, Milton Keynes, but Bradwall, Cheshire! Sorry for the mistake - I'd blame entropy, or the knowledge being sucked through a charged vacuum emboitment, or a catharsis of spurious morality but ... it was actually just a muck up on my part. I shall endeavour to be mildly amusing in recompense.

Sunday 11th March
would have seen writer and script editor Douglas Adams turn 60, and tribute has been paid in a lengthy feature that takes a look at his close links to Cambridge. Adams was born there, read English at St John's College (which became the inspiration for St Cedd's in his Doctor Who story Shada), and was a member of the Footlights. A tour of Adams-related Cambridge locations was taking place on Saturday. [Cambridge News, 9 Mar 2012]

Swindon's Central Library is to see a Dalek invasion on Saturday 17th March as part of a fund-raising event for charity. The day also sees sci-fi author David Johnson holding writing workshops and signing copies of his books. [Swindon Advertiser, 15 Mar 2012]
