Lagunitas Beer Circus

The lovely Joanne from Love Popups London invited me to join her for Lagunitas Beer Circus last Saturday. The festival took place near London Bridge in Flat Iron Square before heading back to the US of A for more circus goodness. Lagunitas is a California based brewing company, and for the second year running they…

Neverland

When I read about Neverland at the Vaults Festival by The Guild Of Misrule , I remembered all the other immersive events I’ve done at the Vaults so far, and promptly grabbed tickets to experience this fun sounding show. It all starts in the Darlings’ bedroom with the “children” inviting patrons to join them in…

Father Of Lies

Another trip down to the Vaults, this time to see Father of Lies at the Vaults Festival. As I’m a big fan of true crime and mysterious phenomenon reporting, so this one just sounded like the perfect mix of the two. Tom Worsley and Sasha Roberts present a real life case of murder from 1973….

The Lifeboat

Part of the Vault Festival was The Lifeboat, an escape room experience based on sci-fi classics, so I had to get a small group together and try it out. As the Vaults are one of my favorite venues in London, I was pleased to find out that this escape experience was taking place in a…

Great Again – The Musical

Another show at the Vault Festival, I thought Great Again by Old Sole Theatre Company sounded like an interesting political exploration, so I grabbed a ticket and went to see it. Unfortunately the show fall fully flat of whatever it aims to accomplish, which is a mystery even at the end of the show. From…

The People’s Rock

I love the Vault Festival as there are always such amazing shows on! Going simply by name, The People’s Rock by the women’s collective Nevertheless She, sounded like a riot, so I booked tickets and headed to Waterloo station to descend into the amazing underground tunnels of the Vaults. Set in a dystopian future that references the “Make America…

Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre Do Shakespeare

When I heard that the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre were coming to the Camden Fringe, I just had to grab me a ticket! I’ve seen the hilarious socks a few times before and this time they were tackling the great bard. I knew this one was not to be missed. The fantastic footwear duo entertained us in…

Hans: Mein Camp

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but I booked tickets to see Hans: Mein Camp anyway, I mean, with a title like that, what could go wrong! After we all filed into the spiegeltent at the Underbelly Festival, I was ready for a campy, colourful show. And boy, did Hans deliver! Hans is the faux-German glitter persona…

Holi at Cinnamon Kitchen

Holi! Who doesn’t love the brightness and positive atmosphere this festival of colours brings with it! I heard about Holi In The City through Love Pop-Ups London and wanted to try it with a group of friends. When we arrived at Cinnamon Kitchen, I realised that this was more commercial entertainment than spring festival. Of course I should have…

Happily Never After

I absolutely love the Vaults Festival, a beautiful fringe theatre festival with an eclectic selection of shows. One show that was recommended to me was Happily Never After, an improvised gothic musical. I’m always one to enjoy a good improv show, musicals are fantastic, and this one is inspired by Tim Burton’s work, so it sounded amazing….

Magic Lantern Festival

The Magic Lantern Festival of 2017 was open in January and February and had a Silk Road theme to it this year. The day we went ended up to be rainy and cold, but we conquered the dreary weather and enjoyed the show regardless. Internally lit and brightly coloured paper lanterns were scattered along the path at…

The Time Machine

I had the chance to accompany friends to this live reading of the HG Wells classic The Time Machine. Read by Christopher Eccleston, Emma Hamilton and Nikki Amuka-Bird and accompanied on the gorgeous Royal Festival Hall organ by  James McVinnie. Obviously I couldn’t say no to this! The setting is obviously dominated by the large…
