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…

Monstersaurus

Yesterday I headed to White City with the children I nanny to see Monstersaurus at the Troubadour theatre. The kids are 2.5 and 4 yrs old and love going to the theatre, so this seemed like an exciting adventure for the day. After a sunny day with occasional showers spent playing and exploring new playgrounds…

Sherlock Holmes And The Invisible Thing

On Thursday I was asked to come along to the press night of Sherlock Holmes And The Invisible Thing at the Rudolf Steiner Theatre, where it is playing until 18th August. As a huge fan of the wide universe of the original Sherlock Holmes stories and their many adaptations and extensions, I was quite excited…

The Starry Messenger

Lest Wednesday I was invited by a friend to join her for The Starry Messenger at the Wyndham’s Theatre. While it wasn’t on my radar as a play to catch, I was excited to see Matthew Broderick live on stage. We had front row seats as well, which is always a bonus. The Starry Messenger…

Where Is Peter Rabbit?

Recently, I got to attend Where Is Peter Rabbit? at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in the West End. I took along two young children, 2.5 and 4 yrs old, to see how they would engage with the show. The theatre had a large stack of booster seats available at the auditorium entrances, so we grabbed…

Lagunitas Beer Circus

The lovely Joanne from Love Popups London invited me to join her for Lagunitas Beer Circus last Saturday. The festival took place near London Bridge in Flat Iron Square before heading back to the US of A for more circus goodness. Lagunitas is a California based brewing company, and for the second year running they…

The Unholy Marriage Of Slice And Sweetly

Having done previous Immer-City events Death Of The King and Dead Quiet, I had a chance on Friday to try out their newest show, The Unholy Marriage Of Slice And Sweetly, a murder mystery based in Bethnal Green. This show takes place at St. Matthews Church and is definitely more of a beginners level murder…

The Gruffalo

On Friday, I got to see The Gruffalo at the Lyric Theatre with the two young children I nanny. It’s the latest production of Tall Stories, a registered charity organisation that puts on beautiful shows for children of all ages. The Gruffalo is recommended for ages 3+ and if you like the book, you will…

Bitter Wheat

When I heard that John Malkovich is coming to the West End, I just had to grab tickets to see Bitter Wheat, not knowing anything about the play itself. I like to go into plays with little to no expectations, to tend not to read up about it and also avoid reviews until after I’ve…

Gingerline – Chambers_4

Having been to their Chambers Of Flavour 3 run last year, I just had to grab tickets to¬† Gingerline‘s newest installation, Chambers_4. Chambers is a multidimensional dining adventure with fun immersive stories and a high production value. As the plotlines, dimensions, and dishes are a secret, I will keep this review somewhat vague to not…

TwoRuba

On Tuesday night, after an eventful day full of desserts and candy, Joanne from Love Popups London treated us to a big blogger and reviewer party at Two Ruba London Bridge, an events venue inside the Hilton hotel. A group of twenty of us was invited to try out their canapes as well as their…

Whisk Dessert Bar

On Tuesday, I was invited to try the current tasting meny at Whisk Dessert Bar in Angel, courtesy of the Love Popups London blogger and reviewer community. Note that while I was given this meal free of charge, this does not influence my review of the experience. This is not a paid ad. We started…
