I’m sorry to say that for the first time EVER, there’ll be no Mainly Music podcast this week. 😵 I extended my time away on holiday. BUT if you’ve not heard last week’s, check it out; particularly if you like the kind of snacks I’m holding up here but MAINLY if you like music. 🎧 I recorded it straight after seeing @officialkaleo at The Roundhouse. 🇮🇸 There’s also an eclectic selection of music from my Spotify playlist including Amy Winehouse, Green Day, Toto, The Kinks, Nirvana etc... a chat about B-Sides and all this fuss about the lamb shank. ✌🏻 Links to the podcast and my Spotify Playlist at www.mattspracklen.com - Link in bio. 😘

Let it grow, let it grow, let it grow. No cut till 2018. Probably... See what happens... 😶

Last one from the water then. Heading out of this place tomorrow back home after a thoroughly serene 10 days in the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District. 🙌🏻

Still here! In the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District that is. 🌤️ Even took a 48 hour social media break!* Here’s the view from @holbeck_ghyll down to Lake Windermere. A stunning location of one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to. ❤️ (*due to no signal or Wi-fi 😝)

“That peace that we’re after lies somewhere beyond personality, beyond the perception of others, beyond invention and disguise, even beyond effort itself. You can join the game, fight the wars, play with form all you want, but to find real peace, you have to let the armor fall.” - Jim Carrey

I ate at @holbeck_ghyll in the Lake District today. A restaurant I’ve wanted to go to for 8 years. 🍽️ It didn’t disappoint! Exquisite in fact. And check out that view of Windermere from the window. 🙌🏻 Comment if you know who else has eaten in this spot for a particular favourite tv show of mine... ☺️

After a day of doing nothing, I’m going to take a little ‘trip’ today... 🤔 Here’s Buttermere looking suitably moody.

Ok, fine (re: Instagram poll). More water. 💧This time, not a waterfall or a lake, but my view from the hot tub at sunset tonight. 😝

Of all the travelling I’ve done, the end of that jetty is my favourite place in the whole world. I’ve sat there many a time. 💭 Where’s your favourite place?

18💬

Thanks for all the love on my last photo. ❤️ I took it on my phone, so today I thought I’d shake the dust off of my camera and take it to my favourite place in the world - The Lake District. 🙌🏻 Here’s a shot from Ashness Bridge at lunchtime. See some of the other places I ended up at on my Insta Stories. ☺️

Last night’s sunset. ☀️ I’ve been here for the past 3 days now catching up with some much needed rest. There’s no phone service for a mile but there’s a bit of Wi-fi in one of the turrets! 👀 I’ve got Scotland and The Lakes within an hour’s drive too so I’m going to get out and adventure today. 🚗

Bob giving it some swing. What a great show this was. 🔥 Hear about it plus tracks from #BobGeldof and @davestewarteurythmics on this week’s #MainlyMusic podcast.✌🏻

Monday recommendation (if that’s a thing). 👀 @wearejudas are on tour soon and have some beaut videos up on their YouTube VEVO channel. 📺 Check them out. Also, happy birthday to @johnclancy611. 👊🏻 🎉

I’ve just watched the BBC documentary ‘Queen: Rock The World’. 40 years ago, @whisperingbob had unprecedented access into the lives of the band during the recording of the ‘News Of The World’ album and on tour as well. 🎤 The footage has just now been put together and has formed an incredible insight for any fan of Queen or indeed music in general. Go and watch it on BBC iPlayer. Oh and always meet your heroes. Honoured to call this particular hero a friend. 🙌🏻

Got to test out the new @sonyalpha A7Riii on Thursday. Only one in the country. @daveburt popped this one off of me ready for the red carpet at the @orientexpressmovie premiere.

Sat in soundcheck with @foyvance and it’s absolutely breathtaking.

Extraordinary event last night. Here’s director (and lead role Hercule Poirot) Kenneth Branagh welcoming the rest of his cast at the world premiere of Murder On The Orient Express. 🚂 Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, Dame Judi Dench, Michelle Pfeiffer etc... what a cast. 🙌🏻 Check out my Instagram stories for red carpet action. // @orientexpressmovie

Just finished guest presenting with @elspethpiercetv on @hoxtonradio. 🎧 You can listen back to the show from tomorrow so I’ll post a link when it’s up. I’m now on my way to record this week’s episode of the Mainly Music podcast. 🎤 At some point, I’ll eat something too. Thank goodness for #PodSnacks. 📷 - @daveburt

Pretty cool highlight reel from when @imcathmcgrath played at #Stageside last week. 🎉 If you missed the show, grab tickets quick for November 28th at Koko where Catherine is playing with @danandshay at Koko in London! 🎥 by @shootwithdan, @lewypee & @katiedwards

A new episode of Mainly Music is up! 🎧 There’s a flashback to the @mercuryprize and I sing a @foyvance song... 🎤 Gus from @unrealaltj requests a song to go on my #Spotify playlist and there’s music from @blossomsband & @sampha. Also, I eat some chocolate. Link in bio ☺️ X
