End of 2018 report

Gone are the days of one show or one venue to rule them all! Obviously I will still happily make repeat visits to shows – or follow them around on tour – if I really enjoy them, but variety has very much been the spice of life in 2018. That covers venue as much as […]

Mind the Blog ‘on tour’ 2018

I had such a good time travelling around for shows last year that I decided I should keep it up again this year.

Sunny Advent

In place of an actual advent calendar this year, I decided it would be fun to look through my memories of Sunny Afternoon so far and pick out some highlights to create a virtual advent calendar! Yes, my picture is terrible (I only had Paint to my disposal, OK?) but you get the idea. So […]

The Lorax

Billed as a ‘show for all ages’, it’s hard not to be skeptical about how true that can be. Something that’s suitable for children can feel too young & simple for adults – similarly, shows that suit adults can go over children’s heads a bit. I’m thrilled to say that The Lorax ticks every box! […]
