Magic Lantern Festival

I went with a friend to the Magic Lantern Festival at Chiswick House and Gardens.  The display was amazing and definitely worth a visit.

Here are a some pictures of the displays and with more photos on flickr.





Theatre trips 2016

I have started the year well with my theatre trips and hopefully I will beat my last years record.

This year I have been to:
Guys and Dolls - one of my favourite musicals
Private Lives - I do like a bit of Noel Coward
Red Velvet - really interesting play about Ira Aldridge and brilliant acted by Adrian Lester
50th Anniversary Tour of Round the Horne - This was a radio show and I can remember some of it from my childhood.
He Who Falls - (Celui Qui Tombe) - this was at the Barbican and was a mime performance and very interesting.
Carnival Dreams - The Musical - I am not sure this show deserves much comment, but the singing was good. 
The End of Longing - The Matthew Perry play which was ok. 
The Last Tango - this was Flavia Cacace and Vincent Simone performing in their last tour and it was the most beautiful show. 

Not a bad start to the year!
