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.

I had this mad idea of doing this festival and – as is often the case with me – it started off as this modest, tiny thing, and then I’m thrilled (and terrified) to say it snowballed and became this much, much bigger thing!” Read more…
