Leodo: The Paradise | Edinburgh Fringe Festival

Pushing the boat out This was our lets-go-crazy-and-buy-tickets-for-the-next-leaflet-we-get-oh-look-this-ones-about-some-Korean-dancing-wanna-try-that-why-not-it’s-the-fringe moment. We had no idea what to expect. But the flyer looked colourful and the flyer(er?) was really enthusiastic so we headed on down to George Square. We were not disappointed.

Best of the Fest | Edinburgh Fringe Festival

Spontaneous Fest We quite spontaneously bought tickets for this show about 20 minutes before it started. In no way was the massive queue outside the venue a guiding factor in this decision. We aren’t that superficial. Huh. No not us. Noway… We even kept the mystery alive with no idea…

Derren Brown | Alhambra Bradford

Miracle This was a last minute theatre trip that I had the highest expectations of. I’ve heard only great things about this great man and he was absolutely a great showman. He has flair and exudes this old school charm that is sprinkled with mischievous humour. The first half was…

The Vote | Live TV Broadcast

The Vote It was a true to life comedy, tackling current issues in real time with a mix of outstanding leading, as well as up and coming actors that made politics accessible, enjoyable and understandable. If you missed it you missed out. I give More4 a standing ovation for the…
