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…

Canterbury River Tours

I took a trip to Canterbury with a small group of friends recently and we decided to do quite a bit of the tourist program. One of the obvious stops is a river boat tour! Such a cheesy cliché, had to be done! We picked a random time slot and were led down a few…
