    Matilda The Musical Review

    Matilda. It’s a story we all know and love, The Trunchbull is infamous and we all know the old “I’m right and you’re wrong, I’m big and you’re small, and there’s nothing you can do about it” line. How then, does this beloved Roald Dahl classic translate to the stage as Matilda the Musical? This week I was invited along to The Palace Theatre in Manchester with some fellow WeBlogNorth members to to watch Matilda The Musical*. The show is currently on it’s UK tour and is midway through it’s stint in Manchester, which began back in September and draws to a close on November 24th- so if you like the…

    Frost/Nixon: A Night At The Theatre

    So last night myself and Danielle headed to the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield to go and see their latest production, Frost/Nixon! The lovely Ellie who works there invited me and my plus one over for a blogger event with some other local Sheffield Bloggers. We began the night with a Frosty Nixon cocktail or two made by the guys over at Crucible Corner  before the show. I couldn’t believe how much I liked a cocktail that contained gin, vodka, tequila AND rum (I usually hate 3/4 of those spirits)! When we arrived we found they’d thrown us an entire 70’s party, disco ball and everything! They had the best playlist I’ve…
