Slava’s Snow Show – Bristol Hippodrome REVIEW

I emerged with snow in my hair, cobwebs on my jacket and completely discombobulated. My plus one Ella, who informs me she is a whole 8 years old, came out on a high after the bizarre mayhem that has just occurred. When asking Ella if she understood what we had just seen she said “of… Continue reading Slava’s Snow Show – Bristol Hippodrome REVIEW

The Hot 8 Brass Band – Cheltenham Jazz Festival REVIEW

Let me paint you a picture. It's a rainy bank holiday Monday. Half of the people in The Big Top are glugging water in an attempt to nurse their bank holiday hangover and the other half are on their 3rd hair of the dog. So naturally I thought this gig was going to be very… Continue reading The Hot 8 Brass Band – Cheltenham Jazz Festival REVIEW

Tape Face – The Parabola Arts Centre REVIEW

Another month in Cheltenham means another festival. I was particularly excited about The Hobgoblin Cheltenham Comedy Festival. My university had rallied the troops to watch 'The Boy With Tape On His Face' at the Parabola Arts Centre. As soon as we found our seats, I realised no one was safe. New Zealand's Sam Wills, oozed… Continue reading Tape Face – The Parabola Arts Centre REVIEW

Therefore I thought it only appropriate that I write up my thoughts on their recent concert which I saw on 19th February. Seeing them for the second time definitely did not make the… Continue reading Little Comets – The Komedia Bath

Mary Poppins – Bristol Hippodrome

This particular trip to Bristol Hippodrome wasn't exactly the watching from the cheap seats as the tickets we paid for were anything but cheap! However the words "worth it" spring immediately to mind. I decided against the pantomime this year, and went for something a little more sophisticated than screaming "IT'S BEHIND YOU" and having kids… Continue reading Mary Poppins – Bristol Hippodrome

Andrew Marr – Cheltenham Literature Festival

Walking into the Town Hall I knew immediately I wasn't going to be one of the older ones here. In fact you could have tripled my age and I still would of been a spring chicken compared to the rest of the audience. It seemed that the entire elderly community of Cheltenham had come out… Continue reading Andrew Marr – Cheltenham Literature Festival

Circa Waves – Bristol O2 Academy

I remember when I bought these tickets. On a family holiday which all of a sudden got all the more exciting when my brother announced Circa Waves were coming to Bristol. We bought tickets instantly. In the end six of us, me and my brother included, turned up at the recently refurbished but still vaguely… Continue reading Circa Waves – Bristol O2 Academy
