* POULTON-based author Barry Lightfoot is popping to Blackpool’s Central Library tomorrow to talk about his new book ‘Rags, Bones and Donkey Stones’.

The book, a sequel to ‘Made in Myrtle Street’, is a novel about the men returning from The Great War filled with both optimism yet apprehension.

“I am going to talk about the difficulties they faced struggling to keep their families in the tough economic climate of a 1920s northern town,” said Barrie, who writes under the name BA Lightfoot. The talk starts at 2pm.

* LOVE films and want to treat your beloved to a Valentine’s Day with a difference? Your luck’s in.

The Dukes in Lancaster is offering a double dose of romance tomorrow by screening two classic luvvie films – Roman Holiday and In The Mood For Love.

Roman Holiday celebrates its 60th anniversary this year and is the romantic comedy which propelled Audrey Hepburn to stardom and earned her an Oscar. Gregory Peck plays her love interest.

In The Mood For Love is a beautifully photographed romance set in 1960s Hong Kong, voted the 24th greatest film ever made by Sight and Sound.

The film stars Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung and is subtitled.

Tickets for each film are priced £5.50 (£4.50 concessions).

* ANOTHER Valentine’s Day possibility for you - a night in the dungeon.

Yes, you did read that correctly. The Blackpool Tower Dungeon is staging an adults only event where thrill-seeking couples can swap dull dates and bland bunches of roses for a late-night trip to the dungeon.

For single people or couples, the event - called Dungeon Lates – will run for two nights only (tomorrow and Friday) and will involve 10 interactive led shows which have been made a little more exhilarating than usual to suit an adult audience. The mind boggles.

At £10 a ticket or £16 per couple, guests will get a complimentary drink to prepare them for the “hilariously horrifying night” ahead.

Dungeon Lates has travelled north following a similar successful event in London.
