Review of Bedknobs and Broomsticks Musical at The Lowry Salford

The story itself is now over 50 years old and follows the story of three young orphaned children as they leave wartime London to stay with Eglantine Price. Little do they know the …

H10 Suites Lanzarote Gardens – Holidaying as Single Parent

I’m pretty sure that 2020 will not be high up in the “favourite years” of most people for obvious reasons. For me, I became a solo parent to my then 18 month old daughter in January when I split with my daughter’s father. Then the whole world fell apart just weeks later. Yes I had …

Bedknobs and Broomsticks Musical | Liverpool Empire

Bedknobs and Broomsticks is a Disney classic- far less well known than Mary Poppins – both created by the legendary Sherman brothers, but still a firm family favourite with the excellent Angela Lansbury in the lead role Miss Eglantine Price. When I heard it had been turned into a theatre show I was really intrigued …

Review | Wizard of Oz – St Helens Theatre Royal

St Helens Theatre Royal turned the original children’s fantasy Wizard of Oz into a real charming and wonderful pantomime.   The cast of Mia Molloy, Reece Sibbald, Harry Moore and Scott Gallagher were an impressive foursome with great chemistry, making the most of some sparkling original and new tunes.  The vocals throughout the performance were wonderful, …

Review | Goldilocks and the Three Bears – St Helens Theatre Royal

Review | Handel’s Messiah | Glyndebourne on Tour

If I’m honest, I felt a bit intimidated sitting down to write this review. I’m definitely not what you might consider to be an authority on this topic. However, our visit to the Liverpool Empire to see Glyndebourne on Tour was not at all intimidating or stuffy. I am so glad I stepped out of …

& Juliet | Review | London’s Award-winning musical

Now, I am a fan of Shakespeare, a student of his plays right up to my dissertation on his romantic texts. I did not expect to like this musical. Why mess with the original? Did they not understand the true meaning of the tragedy? What were they thinking turning it into a tween romantic comedy! …

Dolly Parton 9-5 Musical Review | The Liverpool Empire

A trip to the theatre is always a pleasure for me and the Empire staff have developed a quick, slick operation for checking tickets and passes pre-entry in these ongoing Covid-19 times. We were checked and seated in the beautiful Piano Bar in under 10 minutes and looking at the Christmas Market being set up …

Beaulieu National Motor Museum | No Time to Die Exhibition

Beaulieu National Motor Museum is a surprising day out. You might expect it to be all about cars but that’s not actually all it has to offer. We went as a family; 2 adults and 2 children (4 and 11 weeks). Children under 5 are free. We decided to take the monorail first so we …
