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…

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…

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…

London Dungeon

On Sunday I was invited by Love Popups London to check out the London Dungeon tour. Last time I attended the London Dungeon is about 11 years ago, so I was curious to see if anything had changed with this popular tourist attraction. We arrived a little before our noon time slot and got to…

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…

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…

The Paint Republic

Last night I was invited to attend an evening event with The Paint Republic and Love Popups London at the Stane Street Syndicate, so I headed down to Clapham Common to get my creative juices flowing. Pre-painting burger! We were welcomed with a complimentary dinner of a selection of fries and pre-ordered burgers. I had…

Hidden City – Moriarty’s Game

Having played The Hund For The Cheshire Cat previously, I had to try out another Hidden City game. We opted for Moriarty’s Game by Hidden City and headed out on a beautiful Saturday afternoon to master this challenge. Hidden City provide self-guided games that work through messages on your phone, no app necessary, and take…

Canterbury Ghost Tour

I am a big fan of ghost tours, not because I believe in the supernatural much, but because they usually come with great historical and social stories that I find interesting. They’re usually quite entertaining too. When we took a trip to Canterbury, I found the Canterbury Ghost Tour, which was highly recommended. Little did we…

Canterbury Tales

During our trip through Canterbury, we just had to give this one a go! The iconic Canterbury tales as a walk-through attraction! Tours run quite often and include a free audio guide thingy, which is super helpful in hearing the actual stories being told. Our group was led into the first room, which is the inside of…
