What a night! If you’re looking for an evening full of laughs, The Full Monty absolutely delivers. If you’re a fan of the film then the play is absolutely worth seeing – and if you haven’t seen the film, it’s working class Magic Mike in Sheffield… with a whole array of body types. <3
Happy Spooky Season everyone! It’s been a long time coming, what with these odd summer September days, not that I mind that at all! I’ve been gearing up for spooky season since around July (when HomeSense brings out the first of it’s Halloween goodies that warm my dirty goffic heart). But now, the reaaal fun begins!
Life is so hectic right now; the tasks seem never-ending. I’m always very busy around September and October anyway, but as the nights get longer and the sun gets lower, I plan to settle down for the winter this year. So I decided to accept an invitation for one last calming, summer holiday with my partners’ family to help look after myself!
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…
The Book Thief play (based on a novel by Markus Zusak) is set in Nazi Germany during World War II. The story is told from the perspective of Death, which is quite unique and really came across well on stage. Death in this scenario wore smart attire so I didn’t immediately realise he was Death!
Y’know, I don’t ever really review Indie games? I’ve had a Switch for a while now and I don’t think I have ever taken the time to write about what I’m playing. It’s time to change that, and what better game to start with than The Cosmic Wheel: Sisterhood.
I did something really cool recently that I’ve wanted to do for years but have never gotten the chance to. I am not nearly coordinated enough for LARP (Live Action Role Play) battles and they’ve always quite intimidated me. I have always wanted to explore playing a character… but fighting is just not for me. So imagine my absolute JOY when I found out about Conclave of Chaos!
This four-day festival aimed to commemorate the Pendle witches who were tried and killed in Lancaster in 1612, as hysteria and panic toward ‘witches’ rose. These women, and men, were not allowed to be mourned for; their whole families were eradicated in some cases, so we gathered to learn about them, remember them and in doing so heal and learn new things about ourselves and our connection with other women.
I wanted to put together a list of witchy essentials since I started my practice – so here it is finally! As I’ve gathered witchcraft essentials, components and tools, I have realised that all of it was new to me when I first started and I could have done with a list to show me what the priorities are!
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. I caught it this summer at the Belgrade while on its tour and here are my thoughts!
