Is anyone else absolutely ready for Autumn? Spooky season is here for good now with the autumn equinox happening just yesterday, and what an amazing Autumn/Winter line-up we have at The Belgrade Theatre this year! One of which is the EXCEPTIONALLY funny Heathers…
I am sure you’ll have all heard of it – The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a heartwarming and charming story based on a group of British retirees ending up in an entirely unexpected hotel-come-retirement-home in India.

As a British kid, I bet you likely read Lord of the Flies in school. Of course, when I was younger, I didn’t really understand it – why were the kids so chaotic?

There’s something incredibly British about pantomime that I adore. There’s nothing else quite like it anywhere in the world (to my knowledge). There’s also no better traditional panto than the one at the Belgrade. This year was Jack and the Beanstalk – a classic, of course.
Starting off the spookiest week of the year with a trip to see Demon Dentist at the Belgrade, with a special guest blogger, Sam, who came to see the play with me!
