• PRESS NIGHT REVIEW: Hamlet At Leeds Playhouse

    March 6, 2019

    Oooh, Press Night! How fancy… Well, it’s not really fancy. The only thing fancy about a press night is the free booze – it’s a shame I was driving… BUT the best part about a Press Night is the fact that you get to be one of the first to see something new. And the…

  • 48 Hours In Amsterdam – How To Make The Most Of It

    February 14, 2019

    December 11, 2018

    Plastic is the devil. Well, no it’s not. But single-use plastic certainly isn’t good! On Wednesday evening I was invited to attend Hubbub’s Living With Less Plastic workshop, and it was a great eye-opener. Before I went, I was expecting to be completely overwhelmed by how much I would be taught and how nearly everything…

  • REVIEW: Cinderella Rock ‘n’ Roll Panto, Leeds

    December 1, 2018

    It’s been a THOUSAND YEARS since I last saw a pantomime! OK, well that may be a bit of an exaggeration, but it certainly feels like it. The last one I can recall was when I was 6-years-old, so I’m well overdue a festive visit to see a panto. The idea of slapstick ‘comedy’ that…

  • Monkeying Around At ‘Go Ape Temple Newsam’, Leeds

    November 19, 2018

    I was recently invited to try out the new Go Ape course at Temple Newsam. The adventurer inside of me was absolutely buzzing about it. And the worrier inside me was screaming, ‘BUT WHAT IF YOU DIE??’ Needless to say, the worrier in me had no need to panic. I had the best day and…

  • Opening Night At Craft Asylum, Leeds

    November 18, 2018

    Craft Asylum at Granary Wharf opened its doors on Friday 16th November, so since it is close to my workplace it was mandatory to nip in for after-work drinks.

    Anyone who knows me knows that I love a novelty cocktail. I also love childish games like laser quest, bowling, running around arcades and crazy golf.

  • Boozy Brunch At If Coffee Bar | Leeds

    May 24, 2018

    Some people have all the luck when it comes to love, some people have it when it comes to career opportunities, and some (like me) have the luck when it comes to Facebook competitions. I think I have now won 4 Facebook competitions in my life – you know, the ones where you like and…

  • Leeds Gin Festival 2017

    July 4, 2017

    They say that there is no finer pass-time than drinking with friends… Well, I don’t know who actually says that, but I do think it is pretty good mantra! Some of my funnest social occasions have been when alcohol is involved – sorry you sticklers out there, I have more fun with alcohol! And Saturday…
