Spun – Candy Face Lollipop Masterclass

I recently had the privilege to attend one of Spun’s Face Lollipop Masterclasses, in which I got to make my own face out of sugar! A brilliantly unusual thing to do in London. I’ve previously attended their lollipop making masterclass, and that was a whole lot of fun, and at their birthday party I got…

The Wolves In The Walls

Though I was not in the company of children in the appropriate age range, I really needed to experience this one! Another play based on the work of one of my favourite authors, not something to be missed. So I grabbed a friend and headed out to see The Wolves In The Walls at the…

The Snail And The Whale

Just before my Christmas holiday, I got to take the kids I nanny to see The Snail And The Whale by Tall Stories. We’ve seen another of their shows earlier in the year and absolutely loved it, so we were looking forward to seeing one of our favourite book brought to life. To frame the…

The Bed

I recently headed back to the Little Angel Theatre with one of my charges, the two year old, to see The Bed, toddler version, this time at the studios, with I prefer to the actual theatre venue. This venue has some play areas available for children before the show, and the audience is only lead…

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….

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…

London Escaped – School Of Magic

I was invited by Love Popups London to try out several rooms at London Escaped this week. There’s a lot to write about, but as usual I will keep my escape room review spoiler free and somewhat vague, talking more about the game mechanics and basic story ideas behind it, rather than a detailed review…

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…

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…

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…
