What a HELL of a performance – Bat Out of Hell (press night)

Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf’s greatest hits are played in this powerful rock and roll musical.

Bat Out of Hell is a musical that is based on various songs by Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf creating a tremendous loud, heart pumping, rock and roll show.

With the songs alone this is a musical that will be big for all rock and roll fans out there. It is only being shown in the Coliseum for a very limited season which is a shame so don’t miss it before it’s gone, gone, gone.

Horror gortastic – Peacock Theatre: Horror

Shock horror! this is the most spine-tingling most intense knife edged horror show that I have ever seen played out at any theatre “Oh yes, there will be blood”.

Jakop Ahlbom’s show is full of dance, mime, acrobatics and magical illusion making this the most truly outstanding but unsettling piece of theatre keeping you the edge of your seat all the time.

Immersive food adventourous mystery – Gingerline: Chamber of Flavours v2

Chamber of Flavours is a great multi roomed immersive dining experience.  I travelled through four very different rooms all with a lot of immersive actvity to get involved in.

You are not allowed to give too much away without spoiling the suspense and surprise of each room to future travellers. So all I can really say is that the rooms are decorated very well with a lot of imagination has gone into them and the actors all play their roles with great professionalism and brings humour to all the rooms. For me the best dining rooms Continue reading

Murder at Leeds Castle – Leeds Castle

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.

As I was doing this incredible Murder Mystery event I wanted to get the most out of it so I also booked a stay at Leeds Castle in the converted stables with my husband.  I love Continue reading

Down Down Down the rabbit hole – Alice Adventures Underground

I went along to a special press / blogger evening and I adventured down the White Rabbit’s hole which 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.
