Ian McKellen On Stage

Of course as a huge fan, I had to gather some friends and head to see Ian McKellen On Stage. Having seen him on screen, on stage, and in interviews, I knew this would be a great show. Hearing this well travelled, acclaimed actor speak of his life and career was sure to be a…

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…

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.

Variant 31

On Saturday evening I headed up to central London to give the newly opened Variant 31 a whirl.

London Escaped – White Walker

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…
