Interviews, news, how to guides and more in our run-down of must-reads.

It's been a busy couple of weeks in the editorial department of 50connect and we have plenty of fabulous interviews and features for you to read.  Here is a run-down of some of my favourites, and you can view the story by simply clicking on the blue underlined link.

Jimi Hendrix's burnt guitar fetched £280,000 and you can find out what else sold at the Fame Bureau & Idea Generation auction, which also included Beatles and The Doors memorabillia.

The film The Duchess is out, starring Keira Knightley, Ralph Fiennes, Dominic Cooper and Hayley Atwell and here the stars discuss the making of the film which is centred around one of Princess Diana's ancestors, Georgiana Spencer.

Laurence Green reviews the highlights of this year's Edinburgh Festival and you can find out which productions are worth looking out for in your home town.

Laurence has also been busy in the West End reviewing numerous productions including Piaf, Her Naked Skin, Afterlife and many more.  Have a look at the Theatre Reviews section to find out more.   

We also have tickets to The Barber Of Seville at the London Coliseum to be won in our exclusive competition, so if you fancy an evening of entertainment, why not try your luck?

Whilst we are on the subject of entertainment, we have an interview with the queen of Latin pop, Gloria Estefan who is playing her first UK concert for over twelve years on Wednesday September 10th, and a video interview with Britain's favourite barmaid Bet Lynch,  Reminiscing about her days on Coronation Street.

You can also watch a preview to the forthcoming rugby season, as Josh Lewsey, James Haskell and Danny Cipriani talk about state of English rugby from Premiership to grass-roots level and the new Land Rover Premiership Cup competition which aims to find the next generation of English rugby talent.

There's also exclusive interviews with cricket legend Geoff Boycott and ex-Liverpool goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar, and you can read what Soccer Aid's celebs and legends had to say to us, before the kick-off this Sunday.  

Mark Evans from the Is Born series talks to us about his cars, we show you how to buy a car online, and we have a new what's on guide to motor shows and events.

The 50connect bookworms have been turning pages, and you can read some of their reviews in the books area, and we have career inspiration in our interviews with book publisher Judy Piatkus and self-made millionaire Will King.
