Dinosaur World is coming to St David’s Hall!

We absolutely love dinosaurs in this house. Ever since I was a kid I would look forward to heading to Birmingham Museum to see the giant T-Rex (even if it did scare me to death when it roared!).

A Misunderstood Man: Casanova at New Theatre.

Casanova premièred at New Theatre last night and my lovely theatre buddy and I were lucky enough to attend.

Why My Neighbour Totoro has captured my children’s hearts forever…

We are huge movie buffs in this house, encouraging our children to watch movies beyond the cinema blockbusters, delving into old classics, musicals, anime and so much more. When we first watched Totoro together, a few years ago, George and Molly were hooked from the start. To this day we often find ourselves absent-mindedly singing,… Continue reading Why My Neighbour Totoro has captured my children’s hearts forever…
