From the Daily Mail

Winterval

We stated in an article on 26 September that Christmas has been renamed in various places Winterval.

Winterval was the collective name for a season of public events, both religious and secular, which took place in Birmingham in 1997 and 1998.

We are happy to make clear that Winterval did not rename or replace Christmas.

Three Days in May

A first night theatre review of Three Days in May, which ran in some copies of the edition of November 3, reported the performance of Robert Demeger in the role of Lord Halifax.

In fact, as we stated in It’s Friday the following day, Lord Halifax was ‘brilliantly’ played by Jeremy Clyde.
