Cheap Tickets: Hints & Tricks

Considering I go to the theatre no less than once a month, I’m frequently asked “but how do you afford it?” and I don’t blame them for asking. It’s no secret that going to the theatre is expensive, a majority of tickets for West End shows cost £50+, with some of the “premium seats” getting around the £100 to 200 mark and even touring shows can be from £40+.

However, it can be very affordable if you look in the right places and know the right tricks. So I thought I’d give you a few pointers…

Keep It Lush

It’s been WAY TOO LONG since I’ve done a Lush post, and I can’t help but feel I’m slightly lacking on creative ideas to post about Lush. However, I’ll always be a Lushie and I thought it was about time I gave you an update on some of my favourite products I’ve used over the last few months, and point you in the direction of some of their latest releases.

Theatre Review: Matilda

I have always been a fan of all things Roald Dahl, however, Matilda was one of the stories that slipped through the cracks a little with me. I loosely knew the story, but never felt excited by it and I didn’t see the film all the way through until about 3 years ago. Therefore the musical was never particularly high on my agenda, but thanks to their performances at West End Live 2016 & 2017 (which you may have heard me talk about in previous posts), I had a change of heart…

Turning 20…

On the 19th June, I turned 20. I know it’s not particularly deemed a big deal of an age, but to me it is. It means I’ve been existing for two decades, I’ve dropped the “teen” in my age and I’m expected to be an adult now. I say expected because while on a technicality I am now an adult, I can’t say I really feel like an adult. I don’t know why that is – perhaps it’s just that the situations in my life kind of still make me feel like I’m 18 or younger? Or maybe it’s just self-denial?

Theatre: 5 Reasons to see The Girls

I had intended to see “The Girls” much nearer the start of it’s run, but as life happens it ended up taking me just short of 4 months into it’s run until I caught it – now there’s sadly just 5 weeks left to catch it in the West End. Therefore I thought I’d give you 5 reasons why you should go and see it.

Theatre Review: The Play That Goes Wrong

Having just won a Tony Award on Broadway only two days ago, for “best scenic design in a play” – it seemed the perfect time to venture over to Norwich’s Theatre Royal on a Monday evening to witness “The Play That Goes Wrong”.

Album Review: Rachel Tucker

I briefly mention this album in my recent gig review, however in a bid to avoid any surprises of the gig (as well as save on postage) I decided to wait until the gig to purchase Rachel Tucker’s limited edition On The Road album; and a day later I listened to it in full and decided to jot down my thoughts.

Gig Review: Rachel Tucker

Rachel Tucker first made a name for herself when she competed as one of the finalists in the BBC TV talent show I’d Do Anything in 2008. However, she is perhaps now better known for painting herself green to play Elphaba in Wicked on the West End and Broadway (for a total of 4 and a half years), alongside some other great theatre roles.

Though last night, she took centre stage at The Apex in Bury St Edmunds as she’s “On The Road” for the first time…
