Fuse on Stage organisers describe the aim of the ev'ent as bringing together artists, promoters, managers, publishers, A&H representatives, press and live music lovers to network, share their knowleqge and discuss the topics at the foreaf the music industry. The program focuses Ben Slip on the live contemporary music industry and features showcase events, conferences and seminars designed to help musicians build their performan6e careers. Slip hopes that by attending the same festival and conference as rising star Amira, who had a song featured on a Triple' J album last year, it may result in the same benefits for him. Slip said: "Amira was telling me about last year and how it opened her eyes., "More and more the music industry wants you to build your own radio play before they take you on."

Dame Judi Dench delivers a captivating performance as an upper class widow who buys a dilapidated Soho theatre, then turns it into a nude revue which never closes during World War II. But then, she always does put in a star turn. And the supporting cast is also excellent with Bob Hoskins, who is revealed in all his glory in one scene, in fine form and the world's first Pop Idol Will Young also does well in his acting debut as young performer Bertie. True storY Damm (Bob Hoskins) to turn the theatre round. They transform the venue into the home of an all-day revuedeville. But rival theatres copy and they have to find a new way to get the better of their competitors. Mrs Henderson decides that naked women on stage is the way forward. She manages to persuade prudish Lord Chamberlain (Christopher Guest) to agree on one condition - that the women remain still throughout each production. If they move, they break the law. But Mrs Henderson's battles with Lord Cromer known to the theatre owner as "little Tommy", much to his embarrassment - are soon superseded by an The cinematography even bigger conflict: and costumes are won- World War II. derful in this product- The first half of the ion, which is based on a film is sure to have true story. viewers laughing in the It is imp'ossible not to' aisles,.
