The team behind the popular Love Shrewsbury website are pleased to announce today, that they have formed an exciting partnership with Shrewsbury’s latest and unique app - infoBeetle.

Launched this summer, infoBeetle’s aim is to provide a definitive guide to Shrewsbury and the surrounding area. The special app lists local events, pubs, restaurants, tourist attractions, businesses and of most interest to users - exclusive offers which can be redeemed by displaying the app to retailers.

Love Shrewsbury is a successful website which offers dedicated and varied news content on Shrewsbury - and as such, developing a link with the infoBeetle app couldn’t be more appropriate.

Speaking of the partnership, Pete White of Love Shrewsbury says “Through our new collaboration with infoBeetle, we will be displaying their offers and news items, on the Love Shrewsbury website. It’s a great way of delivering even more fresh and interesting content to our site visitors - people that really do, love Shrewsbury!” He added "We are always keen to ensure that we are at the forefront of what's happening in the town - and the infoBeetle app is a positive addition to Shrewsbury's technology scene."

We've covered a range of slot games on ImAFish and today I want to talk about how themed slot machines can make the game more fun.  When we think of a classic slot machine we think of fruit, whether its matching cherries or lemons the aim was always to match the same fruit in the same row. 

Slot machines can be found all around the county, from pubs, chip shops, arcades, theme parks and over recent years online. The game is simple, the player wagers an amount and presses the button to make the wheels spin.

Once the wheels have stopped the combination of the pictures determines if you've either lost or win, sometimes a bonus feature helps the player continue playing. Slot machines are also called fruit machines for the reason I mentioned above. Unlike other casino style games such as poker there is no skill involved in slots, the result it purely random.

Since slots became online games innovation has rapidly developed themed slots. Now we have themes such as the classic film Jurassic Park, that you can play here, or slots such as the popular computer game series Tomb Raider, that you can play here.

But why do we have themed slots? The answer is simple, it helps keep a classic game modern and its a testament to the longevity in how the game can be applied to so many different scenarios. Find out more on twinspinslot.co.uk.

The British film industry has played a significant role in world cinema for more than a century. It reached its golden age in the 1940s when directors such as Carol Reed, David Lean and Michael Powell were active. Since then many British actors, such as John Hurt, Judi Dench, Michael Caine and Sean Connery have gone on to achieve international critical success. Some of the biggest returns at the box office have also been made in the UK, such as with the James Bond and Harry Potter franchises.

Although the identity of British cinema and its relationship with the Hollywood movie machine has been the subject of much debate, the domestic industry has managed to hold its own over the years and produce some startlingly original and innovative work. Take a look at some of its more recent successes, which have kept British cinema buoyed up between periods of apparent stagnation.

Very British gangsters

The classic gangster caper has come a long way since Bogart and Cagney, with the new-look British gangster in films such as Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels being decidedly cheeky and chirpy when not indulging in a spot of ultra-violence. British director Guy Ritchie created this new and enormously successful genre practically single-handedly.

A new twist on horror

In recent years, British horror films such as Dog Soldiers, 28 Days Later, Shaun of the Dead and Severance have added an innovative twist to tired old classics and given werewolves and zombies a new lease of life. British directors such as Danny Boyle and Neil Marshall have again been in the vanguard.

Classic spies

James Bond, England’s favourite spy, had a complete cinematic makeover for Casino Royale in 2006, with Daniel Craig cast as the surly, violent thug of Fleming’s original books.

Classic sleuths

British director Guy Ritchie again scored a great hit with his original portrayal of an old classic, with the inspired casting of Robert Downey Jnr and Jude Law as an unlikely but highly effective Holmes and Watson. The foggy, brooding streets of London, heavily enhanced with CGI, provide the appropriately atmospheric backdrop to this big budget international success.

London film locations

London, with its churches, palaces, epic skyline and atmospheric streets, has played what amounts to a starring role in many of these British blockbusters. Look at a few of the more popular locations that you could visit during a short trip to the capital.

  • King’s Cross Station. The Hogwarts Express departed from Platform 9¾, signposted here, and there’s a Harry Potter Shop that looks like Ollivander’s Wand Shop in the films. The Harry Potter Experience at Warner Brothers Studios in London is also a huge attraction for fans of the boy wizard.
  • Notting Hill. This is the chic and fashionable setting for the Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts film of the same name. Kenwood House, close by, was the stately setting for a Henry James adaptation.
  • Tower Bridge. This iconic landmark has been prominent in numerous films, from The Mummy Returns and Tomb Raider to Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes.
  • London Underground. The London tube has been a setting for many blockbusters, including the two recent films Skyfall and The Bourne Ultimatum.

The British film industry, with its rich and distinguished heritage, looks set to remain not only an important earner in the UK economy but also a continuing delight to film lovers the world over for many years to come.
