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…

Super Sunday- Race Horse Company

Race Horse Company are an all male Finnish Contemporary Circus Troupe created in 2008 with an aim “to take over the world” and after what I saw last night I think they actually can! Race Horse Company turned the Theatre Royal stage into an abandoned fairground and proceeded to run riot on the equipment that…

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 Norfolk & Norwich Festival 2017

I can’t believe it’s been a year since that last launch of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival. I am even more excited about this years festival as now I live back in Norfolk I can attend SO many more of the events than I did last year. This years launch was held at The Shoe…

The Norfolk and Norwich Festival Launch.

Last night I had the pleasure to represent the Theatre Bloggers Community and attend the launch of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts. This was extra special for me as I grew up in North Norfolk and hearing all about the plans for arts in my local area was really exciting,…

Monday Look Back – Week 14.

What happened this week? I worked. A lot. And when I wasn’t working I was at the gym. I have signed up for a personal trainer. I did my stats. I have a plan. This is getting WAY too serious. Despite the awful weather we have been having recently the flowers in the close are…

A Monday Look Back – Week 4.

Autumn is lingering well into November. I am SO ready for cold frosty mornings and yet it still remains fairly warm in London. It’s making it really difficult to decide what to wear, the tube is still stuffy and hot, but as it gets a little chilly at night, you still need a warm coat….
