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.

No!! Enough with that already… Let’s just stick with Mind The Bard for now.

Spanning two #ShowMustGoOnline productions, from Wednesday 12th until Wednesday 19th August (inclusive), I’ll be making my way around the Internet to bring you the best of this summer’s Shakespearean offerings. Read more…
