Colab Theatre – Spy City

Having previously attended Colab‘s The Swell Mob and The Copy Cat, I was very excited to be invited by Love Popups London to try out their newest adventure, Spy City. So we headed down to London Bridge on a sunny Saturday afternoon to try our luck at being super secret agents. We first arrived at…

Fox In A Box is an escape room franchise company, their London location is in Dalston, just steps from the Overground and really easy to find.

Orpheus Descending

Last night I had the chance to see Orpheus Descending at the Menier Chocolate Factory. The play by Tennesse Williams went through many re-writes and short productions since it was first written in 1940, called Battle Of Angels at the time. I hadn’t ever read or seen the play before, so went in with little…

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

When I heard that the same team that created the promenade experience of Julius Caesar at the Bridge Theatre were putting on a production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, I just had to grab tickets for the first preview to experience it for myself. While I feel calling this immersive theatre is a bit of…

The Tales Of Peter Rabbit And Jemima Puddle Duck

For the May half-term, Wilton’s Musical Hall put on a junior classical production of The Tales Of Peter Rabbit & Jemima Puddle-Duck, so I took along my two little charges to see the show. Touted as a classical concert for young children, this production really went out of its way to make this a great…

Scripts For Supper – The Wind In The Willows

A friend of mine who knows how much I love dinner theatre recommended Scripts For Supper to me, their current production is The Wind In The Willows, so I grabbed a friend and a couple of tickets and off we went. This production of Scripts For Supper happens at three different city farms in London,…

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.

On Tuesday night I was invited to check out the press night of Lola’s Underground Casino at the Hippodrome. The downstairs bar has been newly outfitted with a large, curved screen behind a raised stage and the Lola team are promising “extraordinary performances more easily seen than believed” as well as a “groundbreaking new theatrical…

Everyone’s Talking About Jamie

I’ve been wanting to see Everyone’s Talking About Jamie for a while, but never got around to it. Finally, a friend took it upon himself to queue up early in the morning to grab day seats for us, so I joined him in the evening to see the show. The musical is inspired by the…

American Idiot

I saw the West End run of American Idiot a few years back at the Arts Theatre and wasn’t impressed. I liked the story and of course love the songs, but the cast just didn’t work for me. But when the 10th anniversary tour rolled around to my neighbourhood, I decided to give it another…

The Slightly Annoying Elephant

In my job as a nanny, I get to see children’s theatre shows quite a bit. This time we went down to the Little Angel theatre to see their production of The Slightly Annoying Elephant, a fun little show based on the same book by David Williams. The Little Angel Theatre puts on all kinds…

Night Of The Living Dead Live

This afternoon I was invited by Love Popups London to attend the 5pm show of Night Of The Living Dead Live at the Pleasance Theatre in Islington. We were treated to premium on-stage platter zone seating, so upon arrival we were outfitted with dark grey boiler suits to cover our clothes with and provide a…
