London Escaped – White Walker

I was invited by Love Popups London to try out several rooms at London Escaped this week. There’s a lot to write about, but as usual I will keep my escape room review spoiler free and somewhat vague, talking more about the game mechanics and basic story ideas behind it, rather than a detailed review…

Modern Fables – Hypersomnia

Yesterday Love Popups London and I had a very busy day! Amongst a few other things, we got to try Modern Fables‘s newest escape room experience, Hypersomnia. We have previously played, and very much enjoyed, their other room, The Escapist at their previous location in Bermondsey. They have now moved to a much more convenient…

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…

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child

Having seen this two-part play over three years ago during previews, it was high time for another visit to see Harry Potter And The Cursed Child again. So when my friend Joice had a spare ticket for both shows, I jumped at the offer to refresh my memory! I’ll stay away from spoilery territory for…

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…

Monstersaurus

Yesterday I headed to White City with the children I nanny to see Monstersaurus at the Troubadour theatre. The kids are 2.5 and 4 yrs old and love going to the theatre, so this seemed like an exciting adventure for the day. After a sunny day with occasional showers spent playing and exploring new playgrounds…

Sherlock Holmes And The Invisible Thing

On Thursday I was asked to come along to the press night of Sherlock Holmes And The Invisible Thing at the Rudolf Steiner Theatre, where it is playing until 18th August. As a huge fan of the wide universe of the original Sherlock Holmes stories and their many adaptations and extensions, I was quite excited…

The Starry Messenger

Lest Wednesday I was invited by a friend to join her for The Starry Messenger at the Wyndham’s Theatre. While it wasn’t on my radar as a play to catch, I was excited to see Matthew Broderick live on stage. We had front row seats as well, which is always a bonus. The Starry Messenger…

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 Unholy Marriage Of Slice And Sweetly

Having done previous Immer-City events Death Of The King and Dead Quiet, I had a chance on Friday to try out their newest show, The Unholy Marriage Of Slice And Sweetly, a murder mystery based in Bethnal Green. This show takes place at St. Matthews Church and is definitely more of a beginners level murder…
