PINTER – A Slight Ache/The Dumb Waiter!

I love The Harold Pinter Theatre, a small, cosy venue that gives a good view wherever you sit and in this case we were back row of the balcony for Β£17.50. A bargain for the opportunity to see Martin Freeman again, who has such an amazing stage presence that all he has to do is …

Frank Turner at Alexandra Palace

My first visit to Alexandra Palace. Amazing view of North London and the city beyond and an impressive building that must look stunning in daylight, high up on it’s hill. Getting in was an interesting feat. Ushered forward by security and held in pens, allowing a staggered entry, it felt at times like we were …

The Gingerman, Brighton

Just a short stroll up from the seafront where Brighton meets Hove, this small but perfectly formed restaurant hides behind a very unassuming frontage.

A lovely friendly welcome greeted us in this stylish, Art Deco themed restaurant. A great vibe with a relaxed atmosphere, the restaurant was surprisingly spacious whilst retaining a cosy …

THE BAND Theatre Royal Haymarket…..

I have never been a big ‘boy band’ fan but I can never resist singing along to the occasional Take That song and as ‘boy bands’ go Take That are probably the best that there is (sorry other boy bands!) So with a bunch of similarly aged friends, all of whom can safely say were …

Sovereign Light Cafe made famous by Keane!

Little side tract from the big smoke today whilst visiting family in good old Bexhill-on-Sea. Driving along the seafront on this beautiful sunny day with a very hungry tum, I saw a parking space outside The Sovereign Light Cafe, yes the one in the Keane song and thought it would be rude not to! So …
