My First Panto: Rapunzel At The Garage, Norwich

We received an invitation to the press preview of this show.  I’ll be completely honest, before this summer I didn’t really know much about The Garage which is in the city centre of Norwich. Then, last summer I saw one of their shows advertised, My First Play: A Midsummer Night’s Nap and we were invited to go and see it.

So, each New Year I put a plan in place to get myself organised and ready for anything we have coming up. Getting into this frame of mind takes a bit of practice though and I never used to be like this. Now though, with a family I have to be

A Covent Garden Christmas

AD | Collaborative post. The spending money was gifted by Hotels.com, but all views are my own. As a way to celebrate Christmas a bit early, last weekend I headed to London with my Mum for some quality time together and festive fun. While we had plans on the Saturday we had the whole of Sunday free to explore and do whatever we wanted.
