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 – Zodiac Killer

Last night we were invited to try out Fox In A Box‘s Zodiac Killer room, courtesy of Love Popups London. 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. They have three different rooms, Zodiac Killer, The Bunker,…

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 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…

Lola’s Underground Casino

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 Swell Mob

I was invited along to the press night of Flabbergast Theatre‘s new production The Swell Mob by Love Popups London, so I headed down to the Colab Factory near Borough Station to get immersed in the 1830s taproom setting of this whirlwind show. Upon arrival we were greeted by a variety of seedy characters, given…

Great British Mysteries – 1599

After having seen Great British Mysteries in their Edinborough previews two years ago (you can check out my review here) I’ve been wanting to see their prequel 1599 since I first heard about it. I finally got the chance when they had a short run at the Soho Theare. Olive Bacon and Teddy Tyrell are…

Rosmersholm

I had the great luck to be given two tickets to see Rosmersholm at short notice, I’d been itching to see Hayley Atwell live and this was the perfect opportunity. Written in 1886 by Henrik Ibsen, Rosmersholm is set in a small town somewhere in Norway on the brink of a political revolution. The play…

Dismantle This Room

Intrigued by the description and pricing system of Dismantle This Room, I recruited two friends to go with me. From the theatre website: Stage a violent revolution. Take them down from the inside. Blow the whistle. Or tear it all up and start again. Dismantle This Room is an immersive escape-the-room experience that asks the…

Dinner Is Coming

After having attended the previous Vaults productions of Beauty And The Feast, An Evening Of Meat, and Divine Proportions I immediately jumped for joy when Dinner Is Coming at The Vaults was announced. Tickets were bought, friends were recruited, fun was had! Immediately upon entering I knew this was going to be glorious! There was…
