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…

Fun House- Brisbane Festival 2017

The first post from my amazing trip to Australia is about a theatre show- which was actually one of the last things I did whilst out there. BUT this show finishes on Sunday 24th September so I wanted to post this before then just in case it tempts anyone in and around Brisbane to go!…

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…

Rear View – IOU

I couldn’t have got more lucky with the weather for my last trip to this years Norfolk and Norwich Festival. Glorious sunshine turning into a stunning sunset totally enhanced this innovative outdoor performance. IOU have designed a vehicle and created a show called Rear View– who’s world premiere took place here at the NNF. I…

Driftwood- Casus Circus

Last night I went on my first trip of the week to The Norfolk and Norwich Festival. This time I was walking up to The Spiegeltent in Chapelfield Gardens. It was another beautiful day so once I collected my ticket it was all about a pint of cider. I was at the Adnams Spiegeltent to…

Summer. Autumn. Winter. Spring.

My first trip to this years Norfolk and Norwich Festival was to see Summer. Autumn. Winter. Spring. A seven hour production about life, death and the passing of time. As you can see I wasn’t going to ease myself into the festival slowly- I was going in headfirst with no idea what I was about…

The Pure Scent Candles.

For me, candles are normally a winter thing. In the summer I love to have the windows open and let the breeze through the house ( and the spiders too eeeek!) so burning a candle would seem a bit like a waste of money. But there are some times when its a typical British summer,…

#Ihidbehindmyscarf: Crimson Peak Edition.

I don’t do horror films. Mainly because of two reasons. I honestly think they are sometimes actually just bad films, and two – I am easily scared. Like, I can’t watch the trailer for the new Paranormal Activity film because it freaks me out too much, scared! So what better an idea than to start…

Review – Memphis – Shaftesbury Theatre- London.

Memphis has been in London’s West End since last September, and even though I am a frequent theatre-goer, I’ve just not had the chance to see it. It was on the list with War Horse, Made in Dagenham (which I missed) and Beautiful – the Carole King Musical. But I can now cross it off!…

Bank Holiday Adventures and a week with Bonsai Socks…

This past weekend was a bank holiday weekend, where people who have normal jobs get three days off. I work in theatre so it would have still been just a Sunday weekend for me, if it wasn’t for the fact that we have just gone dark for two weeks pre Elephant Man. So I got…
