Red Palace

On Sunday evening I returned to one of my favourite venues, The Vaults, to take part in Shotgun Carousel‘s newest production, the Red Palace. I’ve visited a few of their previous productions and loved every single one, so really looked forward to getting to experience this one as well. The menu was created and executed…

Variant 31

On Saturday evening I headed up to central London to give the newly opened Variant 31 a whirl. They’ve had a lot of technical issues and opening date delays, and reviews of the preview dates were extremely mixed, so I was looking forward to finding out for myself what this new London attraction is all…

Mites

Last night I was invited to press night of Mites, a new play by James Mannion, which is playing at the Tristan Bates Theatre until 26 October 2019. This play comes with a trigger warning for themes of mental illness, paranoia, and “some other distressing themes”. I really appreciate the content warning and hope it…

We’re Going On A Bear Hunt

We (my two charges, 2yrs and 4yrs, and myself) really enjoy Little Angel Theatre productions, so when we hard they were doing one of our favourite books, We’re Going On A Bear Hunt, we just had to grab ourselves some tickets and go! As always in their main theatre, it’s a bit awkward with seating….

A Deadly Dose

On Friday night, Love Pop Ups London invited me to come along to the Play Dead London and Daggers Productions one-night-only Victorian murder mystery A Deadly Dose. Fittingly held at the Victorian Operating Theatre, which is a gorgeous museum near London Bridge and always worth a visit, we climbed the narrow staircase to help solve…

Derrière On A G String

I was invited to attend the sparkling press night of Derrière On A G String yesterday, so I headed to the Lilian Baylis Studio at the Sadler’s Wells to check out this dance cabaret show. Created by The VERY Top Secret Dance Company, Alfred Taylor-Gaunt’s Derrière On A G String aim to broaden dance audiences…

Funicular Productions – Jewel Of The Empire

Last weekend I was lucky enough to finally attend Funicular Productions‘s show Jewel Of The Empire, I’ve been wanting to see one of these dinner theatre shows for so long! The menu was crafted by MasterChef The Professionals winner Laurence Henry, and the show itself is a murder mystery, everything presented in a fancy train…

Zog Live

Last week I took the children I nanny (2.5yrs and 4yrs) to see Zog Live at the Cadogan Hall. They love the book, so we just had to go see it in the theatre. The story is so charming and cute with a powerful princess at the helm, it’s one of our favourites. The stage…

Dinosaur World Live

A week ago I got to see Dinosaur World Live with the children I nanny (2.5yrs and 4yrs), I had previously seen a similar show a few years back with another charge and it was brilliant, so I was really looking forward to this one. The theatre was very well organised with ample space in…

The Chicago Blues Brothers

On Sunday night, Love Popups London invited me to attend The Chicago Blues Brothers concert at the Savoy Theatre. I’d seen a similar Christmas themed show a few years back, so was looking forward to this one. The Chicago Blues Brothers are a tribute act, bringing the Blues Brothers phenomenon to stages around the country….

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child

Having seen this two-part play over three years ago during previews, it was high time for another visit to see Harry Potter And The Cursed Child again. So when my friend Joice had a spare ticket for both shows, I jumped at the offer to refresh my memory! I’ll stay away from spoilery territory for…

The Scarecrow’s Wedding

We’re making the most of the summer holidays, so yesterday we went to see The Scarecrow’s Wedding at the Leicester Square theatre, where it plays until the first of September. The story is based on the book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, and though I usually love these books, this particular story isn’t one…
