Let’s party like it’s Summer – Tropicana Beach Club

Tropicana Beach Club is the place you definitely want to be if you want to party like it’s Summer. Tonight I went along to a special event via SquareMeal and eventspiration.

Tropicana Beach Club me and bar man

Tropicana heaven

From the moment I walked through the door I felt like I was transported into a Caribbean Island and straight away my mind was taken into party mood. The barman greeted us with his friendly smile and fun personality and gave me a shot which contained not alcohol but pineapple and cranberry juice which made a change and was very refreshing.

Let’s score a hole in one – Junkyard Golf

Junkyard Golf earlier on this year (2017) was re-branded with four complete new nine hole courses all like last time with weird stuff, crazy courses and full of amusing puns.  The courses are called Pablo (Polluted Tropical Paradise), Bozo (Circus Fun), Gary (Scrapyard Challenge) and Bruce (Movie Mash-up).

Pablo

I played two of the courses Pablo and Bruce. The reason I done those two courses over the others that night is because Pablo appealed to me as I love animals and Bruce as I love movies. Continue reading

Murder at Leeds Castle – BlackWatch Entertainment Murder on the Home Front

Leeds Castle is set in Maidstone not in London but I just had to write up about this pop up Murder Mystery event ‘Murder on the Home Front’ that I went along to this April which was performed by BlackWatch Entertainment.

Leeds Castle

Staying at Leeds Castle

I wanted to make the most of the night so me and my husband Jason we booked booked a stay at Leeds Castle in the converted stables.  I love animals so this is why I chose the stables over the actual castle in which you can stay in.  The castle is very grand and maybe next time I will stay there.  The stable room we had overlooked the lake so I could see many birds from ducks to swans.  The room also was a very spacious double and very nicely decorated. There was also complimentary snacks with some good old British tea and coffee on hand. Continue reading

Down Down Down the rabbit hole – Alice Adventures Underground

I went along to a special press / blogger evening of Alice Adventures Underground in which I adventured down the White Rabbit’s hole. This event is an immersive spin on Lewis Carroll’s classic Alice in Wonderland. This 2017 Olivier Award nominated adventure has returned to The Waterloo Vaults.

It first had a successful run back in 2015 where it had fully sold out but now it has returned for 2017 with even more adventure to have along the way with some new characters.  Usually you can’t take photos on your journey but because I attended a special press night we all got to meet the characters after and take photos with them which was very special and I feel very privileged.

Clues and more clues – Agent November: Murder Mr E

Murder Mr E takes place in a corner of a pub that is taped off as a crime scene.  We were invited to dine with the renowned detective, Mr E. However unfortunately when me and my team from Love Pop Ups London arrive we discover that Mr E has been murdered.  It is then up to me a newly recruited agent and my other newly recruited agents (my team) to find the killer otherwise we might be next and loose our lives.
Agent November and Love Pop Ups London had to solve the crime of Murder Mr E.
Within the closed off crime scene in which we are only allowed into, we had to solve the crime of who Murdered Mr E from the guests he was hosting a party for within 60 minutes.  All around the crime scene in every nook and cranny literally there are many clues to be discovered and be had and many locked boxes to be decoded and unlocked.  Without giving too much away all I have to say is there is a lot of items to be found and a lot of boxes to open so keep your eyes peeled and seriously look everywhere.  Unfortunately me and the blogger community from Love Pop Ups London even though we thought we cracked the case within the 60 minutes we came to the wrong conclusion so alas we drank the wrong drink and all died of poisoning as we did not find the antidote.

Curiouser and curiouser – The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities

The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities is a must to visit if you love all things odd, weird and totally wacky.  Ground floor has a bar area and some stuffed taxidermy animals with some being a bit odd like a cat with wings. From the bar area you can order cocktails and food with some being very bizarre from chocolate worms to cockroaches.  Downstairs this place makes me get even more curious with yet even more wackier and stranger with taxidermy frogs playing cards, a gold skull hippo head, Russel Brands pubes, Kylie Minogues pooh, little people made out of dust, creepy looking dolls, etc. in every nook and cranny there was something very unusual to discover.

An explosive escape room – Mission: Breakout

Mission: Breakout is an exceptional real-life escape game that is based in the borough of Camden in Central London. It is a fully immersive game that takes place in South Kentish Town’s old disused tube station which closed back in 1924.

Mission: Breakout

The Ghost Tube Station

Upon going down the stairs to the escape room we came across old black and white photographs showing people that used this underground station as a shelter when World War II was happening. The photos made me feel emotionally sad inside and made me think back to how people must of felt back then in that era when the bombs were going off.
