A fun night out at Magic Mike Live

Last month I had a fantastic weekend in London with my uni friends, celebrating one of their birthdays.

Theatre review: Dirty Dancing at the Dominion Theatre

Dirty Dancing, one of those classic films that you can watch over and over again. Even though I’ve seen a fair few shows either at the West End or at a local theatre, this has never been one of them.

This place is huge though so I wanted to share some tips for visiting the British Museum with children.
