Welcome!

Hello and welcome to Mind the Blog.

Here you’ll find reviews and features on theatre, concerts, albums, and anything else that’s even tenuously related. When I first started this blog I had intended on it being somewhere for me to have extended rants on the irritating things people did across London, but once I wrote my first piece (of who knows how many) about Sunny Afternoon it became apparent that there would be many more theatre posts to come…

Each year I keep track of the shows I see, as well as introduce a new page for a particular focus for the year – so far this includes Shakespeare and puppets, and Emma Rice. 2019 is the year of Arthur Miller!

You can find all of my blog posts on here, as well as additional content on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Basically, yeah. And it’s not just the glitzy end of season parties that have a diversity problem; improvements still need to be made from the ground up, ensuring no one is excluded from a career in the arts due to their race, class, gender, disability, sexuality, or anything else. Enter Elliott Bornemann. Read more…
