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…

The Band

Being in lockdown due to the corona virus pandemic, I thought I’d use the time to work on my backlog of shows I never got around to review back when I actually saw them. I just don’t always have the time to write reviews right away and sometimes they just fall into an eternal backlog…

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 Adventure Is Real

On Thursday night I was invited to try out the new immersive game by The Adventure Is Real, a combination of roleplaying games, boardgames, and immersive theatre.

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…
