Our first Lapland UK Experience {2018}

Since LP and Little Man were born we have visited so many Christmas attractions, met so many Father Christmases and have had every conceivable Father Christmas experience you can imagine. But, until this year we hadn’t experienced Lapland UK – without doubt the UK’s most famous festive day out. When we were invited to Lapland UK we registered on the website, filling out the children’s names and personal information –…

Disney on Ice – Dream Big Review

Just after Christmas, we were lucky enough to get tickets to see Disney on Ice: Dream Big at the O2 in London. We have been to see Disney on Ice a few times both at the O2 and at Wembley Arena and it never disappoints. Each time the show goes on tour, the theme is changed with the stories mixed up with familiar Disney characters telling their stories and drawing…

Circus 1903 at Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre – London

Yesterday we were invited to see Circus 1903 at the Royal Festival Hall, part of Southbank Center in London. We watched the show’s trailer and were blown away – circuses are everywhere at the moment but Circus 1903 looked like a whole new level of entertainment. Circus 1903 is from the producers of the world’s biggest magic show and includes elephants created by puppeteers from War Horse and features a…

Here’s what I read during 2018: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Every couple of years, without fail, I read…

A Festive Weekend in Salford Quays #TheQuaysat18

Last weekend, after the children finished school on Friday, we drove up to Manchester for a weekend in Salford Quays. It’s somewhere we’ve never visited as a family and although I’m in that area twice a year for the Blog On conferences I have never explored further than the venue. We were looking forward to a festive weekend somewhere new. We stayed in TheHeart Apartments for the weekend which was…

Review: Sleeping Beauty at Camberley Theatre, Surrey

Christmas really isn’t Christmas without a visit to a pantomime and this year we were invited to see Sleeping Beauty at our local theatre – Camberley Theatre in Surrey. Over recent years Camberley Theatre has undergone a lot of renovation work and it’s now such a lovely place to visit – modern with great facilities and an auditorium that gives a great view from any seat. It’s one of our…
