  14. Leeds based online English dialect archive 'fantastic opportunity'

    Now do you 'mash', 'make', 'mask' or 'scald' your tea?

    Well the University of Leeds has been awarded nearly £800,000 by the National Lottery Fund to find out exactly that!

    Regional dialect map of UK

    It's part of a study into English dialects and how they've progressed down the generations in the last 40 years.

    The University is searching for people who took part in the original survey between 1946-1978, when more than 300 ways in which we speak were studied.

    Quote Message: "This is a fantastic opportunity to take language and heritage back to the communities it came from - and where it truly belongs. "We will be able to help people uncover their own dialect inheritance and cultural heritage and invite them to add their own memories, language, and stories for the benefit of current and future generations." from Dr Fiona Douglas Project leader

  15. Demolition plan approved for Futurist in Scarborough

    Plans to demolish an almost 100-year-old seafront theatre have been approved.

    Scarborough Borough Council planners voted in favour of plans to spend £4m on demolishing the Futurist.

    Futurist Theatre

    The theatre opened in 1921 and hosted an array of famous artists, including The Beatles, before closing in 2014.

    Campaigners had hoped to run it as a charitable trust but the council has judged it is not sustainable as a theatrical venue.

    Flamingo Land, which is a large visitor attraction in Malton, North Yorkshire, has already expressed interest in developing a new year-round tourist attraction on the site.
