Soon to come my Review of Star Wars Identity Exhibition

The Chase, Vanessa Fewings

The Chase

The Chase, Vanessa Fewings

The Chase, an all-new sexy first story in the Icon Trilogy from Vanessa Fewings is coming June 6th!!!

A rising star in one of London's top art investigation firms, Zara Leighton's talent for seeing deep into paintings is in her blood. She's chosen to help track down Icon, an enigmatic international art thief whose heists are methodical, daring, baffling. To Zara the case is maddening—bordering on an obsession.

She finds distraction in the chiseled form of top-shelf client Tobias Wilder, a magnetic American billionaire who demands her expertise, her discretion—and her secrecy. Wilder doesn't ask questions. He gives orders. His gaze alone ignites her deepest fantasies. And his touch…

The sudden whirl of exclusive exhibitions and decadent parties that Wilder introduces her to is a potent aphrodisiac. But surrender soon becomes tinged with suspicion. Is Zara's tryst with Wilder the real thing…or just a convincing forgery?

Buddy Holly Story

The Buddy Holly Story

Forget to feel good, Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story is FEEL GREAT!

Experience the drama, passion and excitement as a cast of phenomenally talented actors and musicians tell Buddy Holly’s story, from his meteoric rise to fame to his final legendary performance at The Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa.

Featuring two terrific hours of the greatest songs ever written, including That’ll Be The Day, Oh Boy, Rave On, La Bamba, Chantilly Lace, Johnny B. Goode, Raining In My Heart, Everyday, Shout and much much more, this show is just Peggy Sue

Everybody loves a bit of rock and roll, and buddy was one of the biggest out there to bless us with it, A bit of Foot tapping hand clapping thigh-slapping fun.

At just a mear age of 19, Buddy shook the world and bring us from country music to going with his heart and passion.

It was fantastic how the producer Richard Porter, has kept this show going for twenty years it's shown all over, and people go back for all their generations to see the story of Buddy.

You grow to love buddy the determination he had as he faced so many barriers, true to form he did things he's way even down to his spectacles

learning history the passion he had for creating his music and creating a new era is part of the reason you grow to love him.

Me with the Producer Richard Porter

"I don’t want to do country music anymore" you can hear Buddy whale at his KDAV radio station manager DJ High Pockets, after ripping the set into a Rock’ n’ Roll Fest some called in complaining some loved the new style music.

It's evident to see what buddy put his mind to he followed with force even with his friends and manager do the unthinkable.

All the way through watching his character grow I knew the horrendous end buddy would meet, somehow hoping inside he just takes the bus, after all being a little cold would beat being dead right?


The winter dance party in Iowa buddy and his co-stars the big Bopper and Richie Valen's had a chartered aeroplane to go Minnesota, tragically the snowstorm proved too strong and took the lives of music legends, the day music died.

we know and love today many artists took inspiration from the rock n roll
Bob Dylan, John Lennon from the Beatles Eric Clapton to name a few that Buddy's music inspired.

I was excited to hear that'll be the day before me
Poignant reminder he most definitely was a go-getter as soon as he clapped eyes on Maria Elena, Buddy knew then he was going to marry her, and he did.

Alex Fobbester who played the part of Buddy Holly I feel was accurate and did a fantastic job
as did the other actors and actresses it was amazing to see the story of buddy Holly and what made the music we have each of the ensemble put a lot of heart and sole into their performances and It was a pleasure to watch, although I wasn’t sure if Richie Valens was portrayed quite how I remember him but it did add humour to the show,
well done team truly inspirational and part of History

That’ll be the day

Every day

The First Hippo On the moon

The First Hippo On The Moon

From Number One bestselling Children’s author David Walliams comes an explosively funny space adventure for children of 3 and up. Two fat hippos. One ENORMOUS dream. Who can make it to the moon first? The First Hippo on the Moon is playing at The Churchill Theatre until this Saturday.

3 ...2 ...1 ...BLAST OFF!

David Walliams has taken the literary world by storm, and his brilliantly funny stories are adored by children the world over! He has achieved unprecedented critical acclaim and quickly developed a reputation as a natural successor to Roald Dahl. His books have been translated into over 45 languages and sold over 9.5 million copies in the UK alone. 

The First Hippo On The Moon

Review

Funny story to this show.. we all know David Walliams for his comedy and him in general, so I was interested to see how and if he was able to pull off entertaining children to go beside us adults.
When I saw The First Hippo On The Moon advertised I booked it up, sadly the theatre had to cancel my day it was showing, and I was unable to see the other days due to other commitments.

 

When I was given a chance to see it again, I snatched that opportunity up like nothing.

The auditorium wasn't very full but in a way was more of an intimate setting.
We were able to have seats close to the stage which was beneficial for the monkey, not a very long concentration span and with the autism, with possible ADHD it's hard to know if I'll have to grab her out of the show.

The First Hippo On The Moon

The stage was set up, and it felt like we were in the jungle, I have to admit it was a good show I loved the three types of variations that were used, on stage human-sized puppets, on stage mini puppets for the moon scene, and the television puppets.
I was very impressed with how three people were able to master and stay in sync with the monkey's movements, and Evie had fun dancing to some of Sheila's songs.

I feel there was a strong message le petit theatre and David Walliams had to bring to the younger generation, always have a dream and keep reaching for it, but don't discredit people that have helped you along the way.

David Walliams has a few more theatre productions going on, and I honestly look forward to getting a chance to see them.

Persil messy play for little belles and beasts | Review

Persil messy play for little belles and beasts

When I found out Persil had teamed up with Disney to encourage messy play for little Belles and beasts.

I have to say budget wise normally go for own brands, so when the opportunity came for me to try 22 plus and extra two = twenty-four washes and comes with a free £5 Disney store voucher this is a promotion of the new Beauty and the Beast! Every pack purchased to support the live-action remake I jumped at the chance,
I had noticed the capsule was different to my normal cubes two of which go in the top draw but persil capsule in the load and put on for a wash I was so surprised at how fragranced my items were with just one capsule as well. I did a few more loads you know Friday strip beds and bath sheets get a clean day, I could never seem to get a smell at all from any of my washes was always jealous of me mum every load comes out smelling blissful, mine just no smell even with a hot wash clean.
So imagine my surprise when I was also getting the beautiful smell from MY laundry, definitely made me tempted to switch brands and I get a £5 Disney store voucher to treat monkey or KK or myself hehe!
So yes it's been a Beauty to try! And the beastly laundry pile doesn't seem so scary anymore!

Jennifer King, Senior Brand Manager for Persil at Unilever UK, comments, “As one of the UK’s leading household brands, we are thrilled to be joining forces with one of the biggest movies of 2017. With the chance to redeem a £5 Disney voucher with every pack, you can be confident that the all-in-one powerful clean of Persil Capsules will wash away any mess from your little Belle – or Beast.”

Mamma Mia!

It's always fun to go to the theatre, I must admit going out with KK has been harder due to her autism and ADHD, I find it hard to stay calm and not tell her to stop doing things that will attract unwanted attention from people, over the years Ive had horrid comments and stares.

So being with Lou and Hope I feel a little more relaxed, and given it's a special performance for people to not hide there quirks.

The show set off with introductions of who was playing what part, which was fantastic extra step. Brightly light stage howling with laughter and keira singing along to the tunes, she absolutely had a great time and even wanted to see if there was more at the end!

This cast was different to the cast I had seen many moons ago, but it was still good kept the story running and had a lot of giggles along the way shows that you can be a strong independent woman, have love after loss, very endearing and touching storyline that shows sisterhood as a strong bond.

A lot can be learned from Mamma Mia, one things for sure looking in diarys unless allowed can lead to a very hard lesson . . . !

Mamma Mia!
4-out-of-5-stars-rating

Overall I would give Mama Mia 4/5 stars

 

Have you seen Mama Mia? Do you want to see it? What did you think of it ?
