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.

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.

Saucy musical fun – Miss Nightingale

Matthew Bugg’s wartime musical Miss Nightingale is a musical play that is set in London, 1942.  The whole set which never changes is set up as an underground cabaret club that is up and running during the war-torn city with bombs being dropped in and around London and with many blackouts. Theatre was a very important part of London life during the war as a way to escape.

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.

What is my identity? – Star Wars at the O2

Not to Far Far away at this Star Wars at The O2 there are so many costumes, props, models and artwork from the movies to glance upon. Plus you can also create your own identity along your journey leading up to what you would look like in Star Wars depending on your options which you choose.  Who would you resemble?

Star Wars at the O2 in what I saw

I particularly enjoyed seeing the vehicles that were used in Star Wars as they were a lot smaller than I ever imagined and I enjoyed seeing the artist’s sketches especially the many various ones on Chewbacca. Continue reading

Romeo, Romeo – CoLab: Montagues and Capulets

I went along to CoLab to watch and take part in an immersive modern adaptation of the play Romeo and Juliet. The whole experience was such fun and I really enjoyed the modern take on Romeo and Juliet.  I love the fact that us the audience could get involved in the scenes with helping out in various missions from seeking evidence to being a bridesmaid for Juliet. Plus it is great that the whole play is situated over various rooms with us being able to get to them from climbing ladders and crawling through tunnels.  Continue reading

Beautiful lush heavenly scented products – Button & Wilde

Button & Wilde was a pop up shop that popped up in London for just two days in 2017.  Firstly I love their lovely cute logo of a hedgehog and a squirrel so adorable.  The pop up shop of theirs was decorated out beautifully with a painting of a pink blossom tree and cones of a tree hanging around and some plant foliage laid around here and there between the productions they were selling.  The smell also as you went inside is so lush it really does make you feel like you are in a field of flowers and citrus fruits.  Continue reading
