In Camera – Faith Healer

Another installment of the live-streamed In Camera at the Old Vic ran last week, and of course I booked tickets to watch along again. I love the Old Vic live streams, it’s not quite live theatre, but it’s so close to it, and in the current times it’s so nice to be able to support…

Sleepless – A Musical Romance

On Saturday it was finally time to see a musical in an indoor theatre! While I have recently seen a musical (in a pub garden) and an indoor play (at the Bridge Theatre), I just haven’t had a big musical live on stage in an indoor theatre experience in months! I was very excited to…

Old Vid In Camera – Three Kings

On Friday it was finally time to experience the Old Vic’s second installment of their live streaming program, In Camera – Three Kings, with Andrew Scott. It had been postponed a few times due to health reasons and was now being streamed from the empty auditorium. This one-person play was specifically written by Stephen Beresford…

Beat The Devil

Last week I headed for my first post-lockdown live indoor threatre experience! I booked to see Beat The Devil at the Bridge Theatre, one of the series of monologues they are currently hosting in their socially distanced auditorium. It felt really weird and somewhat eerie to be back at the theatre, with an audience bedecked…

AIM – Operation Mindfall

After having played AIM‘s Deja Brew and Spy Heroes escape rooms, I was invited by Love Popups London to try their new augmented reality outdoor experience in central London. We got to play the Operation Mindfall, which is a two hours outdoor adventure starting at the Monument. The premise of this game is that we…

Fanny And Stella

2020 has been an interesting ride so far, but I am very excited to announce that live theatre is officially back! Well. A version of it, anyway… The Eagle Pub in Vauxhall has created a new, socially distanced outdoor theatre space, that is currently hosting a run of Fanny & Stella. Before we get into…

Picnic Hunters

As a big fan of Gingerline, I just had to try out their new outdoor, self guided, socially distanced adventure: Picnic Hunters. This adventure consists of an app-based scavenger hunt that guides participants through a London park to discover secrets and solve clues and, eventually, be rewarded with a wonderful picnic! Having loved all the…

Agent Venture

Last weekend, the Love Popups London gang attempted to work their way through both Agent Venture adventures. We started off with The Heist, which we had play-tested a little while ago. But as the game had been remodelled and extended, we got to try it again. It is now almost twice as long as it…

In Camera – Lungs

To kick of the Old Vic’s new live-streamed theatre series In Camera, Claire Foy and Matt Smith starred in a production of Duncan Macmillan’s Lungs. In Camera is a new creative idea to still provide live theatre while staying socially distanced. Instead of heading to the theatre, ticket holders can log in to Zoom and…

Agent November – Virtual X-Caper

TodayI was invited by Love PopUps London to try out the brand new online escape game Virtual X-Caper by Agent November. I’ve played some Agent November adventures before and they’re always very immersive and fun, so I was very much looking forward to this actual escape adventure. I really miss escape rooms, so getting a…

The Panic Room – CSI Grounded

Today I was invited by Love PopUps London to join her team to solve one of The Panic Room’s online escape adventures, CSI : Grounded. This adventure is played completely online. You need no printer or fancy setup, any internet capable device will do. We were given our access code, which works across multiple devices,…

Today I was invited by the lovely Love PopUps London to join in a game of Print – Cut – Escape by clueQuest. This is an online escape room that can be played by several households through an online video chat. It comes with 24 pages that need to be printed out and cut to…
