Finding The One

Everyone searches for the one. I’ve been searching for the last few years now. I thought I had found the one in Merlin. I met him stuck in a muddy field when I moved back to Norfolk in 2016. I fell in love instantly. Born in 1987 like me, he was a little quirky and…

Barely Methodical Troupe – SHIFT

My last visit to this years Norfolk and Norwich Festival was to The Adnams Spiegeltent to see the specially commissioned show SHIFT, by the Barely Methodical Troupe. SHIFT Explores shifting perceptions and realities through power based acrobatics mixing show-stopping circus tricks with the emotional punch of theatre.

Ben Folds and A Piano

I was first introduced to Ben Folds in 2008, when the sound technician at the theatre I worked at used the Ben Folds Five as sound check music. By the end of the week I had to ask him what was playing and it was instantly added to my very small iTunes library- which at…

Improbable- The Paper Man

Its a festival of firsts for me this year. First time writing about dance. First time writing about music and first time at The Norwich Puppet Theatre. I don’t know why it’s taken me so long – its a brilliant venue that I will be keeping a closer eye on for sure. Improbable have been…

My First Peak- Hiking Passage Peak on Hamilton Island

I love to walk. I walk a lot in Norfolk, but the thing about Norfolk is it is rather flat. Ok- now that is a lie, I can safely attest that there are hills, but Beeston Bump aside there are no great inclines. I have had the hiking bug for quite some time now, but…

HighTide Festival 2017

I hate missing out on exciting theatre, but that is one thing I will be doing this September. Now I know I can’t complain too much about missing this festival – especially as I will be having amazing adventures in Australia (and possibly even seeing theatre at the Brisbane Festival ) but I thought seeing…

Shakespeare With The Handlebards

Last Friday I saw my first ( and sadly probably only) outdoor theatre of the summer. Shakespeare’s As You Like It performed by brilliant company – The Handlebards. The Handlebards started their journey in 2013 and are currently two troupes of cycling actors who carry all of the necessary set, props and costume to perform Shakespeare…

Grand Canyon South Rim Tour 

As soon as we started talking about our trip to Las Vegas we all agreed there was no way we were not visiting the Grand Canyon. There were so many tour options out there, ranging through all sorts of prices, with helicopter rides, raft rides, MULE rides and bright pink hummers. After much discussion and…

Nine Months in Norfolk.

I just realised that I have been back in North Norfolk now for 9 months! I can’t believe how much time has flown by. I am really enjoying being back. Work is brilliant, and I have more time to try and organise and sort my life out… which after 7 years in London, seriously needs…
