As you may or may not know, over on my YouTube channel I do a round up at the end of the month (or every 2 months depending on how much I’ve seen!) of all the shows I’ve been to see over the last few weeks. As well, I discuss what I’m hoping to see in the next month and also a few other theatre related things I’ve been enjoying!
Last week Shaun and I went to see The Girls, a new musical based on the film Calendar Girls, with new music by Gary Barlow, from Take That, and Tim Firth! I went into the show with zero expectations and well, I was pleasantly surprised with what they delivered! Check out our trip to the show and my thoughts in the vlog here! 🌻
I love shooting with my instant cameras, but the one problem I have is how to store the fantastic shots from them! Sadly as of late they’ve all been living together in a ziplock bag, which is neither the cutest or the best way to store them, and they deserve better. I’m happy to report, I’ve found a solution! 🎉
Mother’s Day isn’t exactly my favourite, but the weather was stunning on Sunday and I didn’t want to stay inside and feel mopey, so I asked Leo if we could go out exploring to take my mind off things and boy did that work! Continue reading
As it’s currently #WorldTheatreDay, I thought it’d be fun to write a blogpost all about theatre! If you know me you know I’ll talk about theatre anyway, I feel like recently I’ve literally been living and breathing the theatre lifestyle and it’s something I’m totally okay with. While I live in London and take full advantage of the West End, as of late I’m truly lusting over Broadway…
This show has been in the West End for AGES, and somehow I’ve never been to see the show. Don’t ask my why not, I’ve obviously just been really stupid, because it’s absolutely hilarious and I’m so glad I’ve finally been to see The Play That Goes Wrong, check out my review of the show here! ⤵️
Monday 20th | On Monday the absolute highlight of my day was visiting the Theatre Royal Drury Lane for the first preview of 42nd Street being back in the West End! I’ll have a vlog of that online soon but for now I’ll say it was such an exciting night!
Tuesday 21st | This was a day off where I was able to crack on with editing, and also took a quick shopping trip into Central which was productive!
Wednesday 22nd | My second trip to the theatre this week was to see The Girls at the Phoenix Theatre, again with my theatre buddy Shaun, I feel so lucky to have seen all these shows recently! Sadly on Wednesday there was also the attack on Westminster, but I’m proud of London for being strong and resilient and it makes me proud to be part of this city.
Thursday 23rd | After a short shift at work (albeit early, so I had to take a nap when home ha!) I went to a late(ish) night concert at the Crazy Coq’s venue in Piccadilly Circus to see the beaut that is Rachel Tucker! I haven’t seen her in concert in so long and she’s really in her prime here. More on that in a video soon!
Friday 24th | I managed to film four, yes, four, videos on Friday! 💀 Two of them were little theatre chats for a couple of vlogs, and two full on videos, and the weather was so beautiful in the day I also went for a 3k walk around my area to enjoy the weather!
Saturday 25th | I thought I’d be more productive on Friday night after my walk but it turns out I wasn’t, but I made up for it on Saturday by editing, uploading and scheduling 3 videos on the YouTube. 👌🏼
Sunday 26th | It was Mother’s Day, and I’m not a huge fan of that concept nowadays for obvious reasons. However, we did have a bloody lovely day. Leo took me for brunch, and then we hopped on the tube to Edgware Road, to then walk through Little Venice and Regent’s Canal. We ended up at the pub for a Sunday roast and caught up with a friend, so all in all a good day. 👍🏼
