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!

For years I’ve felt like I’ve been going in circles. I always saw myself going round and round, making the same mistakes… but little did I realise, I’ve been getting stronger. With each turn, each twist, I’ve been getting more powerful. Like a snake, eating its own tail.
Just a really short post from me today because I am feeling really happy and elated! I went to my first coven meeting today for Beltane and it made me feel a part of the pagan community for the first time!
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? Why would they do the things they did? After seeing the play, it got me so gripped that after innumerable years since I’ve read the novel… I FINALLY GOT IT.
The Belgrade invited me to see Drive your Plow over the Bones of the Dead this week and I was immediately intrigued.
Once again an astounding show is put on at the Belgrade Theatre as we launch into their Spring schedule. Pride and Prejudice (Sort Of) is not to be missed.

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!
The costumes were amazing, the choreography was brilliant (THE POWER POSES!)… Just go and see SIX immediately! It’s sold out in my home-town (I know because I immediately tried to get tickets to go again) but everyone should see it on tour.
I have to admit something to you… I never once considered when reading the synopsis of Bugsy Malone before I saw it earlier this week, that it was played almost entirely by 9 to 15 year olds! I am completely new to the story and just saw “prohibition era New York” and thought… yep… I’m there!
