Lancashire County Council has announced that it will be investing £6.6m to improve its 17 county-run residential care homes for older people. But will that include wifi? Most care homes still don't provide it. But shouldn't every home have internet access for the people who want it?
Coming to the Dukes on Thursday 19 October is Seiriol Davies’ sell-out Edinburgh Festival Fringe musical extravaganza 'How To Win Against History'. It's about Henry Paget, the 5th Marquis of Anglesey, who was one of the Earth’s wealthiest men - until he lost it all by being too damn fabulous.
The Community cast of the Dukes' current production of 'Blackout: tales of Storm Desmond' talk about attending rehearsals, learning lines and some of their experiences of living through the storm Desmond, to Virtual-Lancaster's Peter Clarke.
