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. For 2018 I’m covering as much Emma Rice as I possibly can!

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