Peter Pan is at St.Helens Theatre Royal this Christmas

December 14, 2018 admin 1

No Christmas is complete without a trip to the theatre to watch the panto and this year we can recommend an amazing show for you. St.Helens Theatre Royal will be showing Peter Pan from now until January 13th and it is most definitely a show not to be missed.   Over the last 12 months St. Helens has become one of, if now our all time, favourite theatre, especially when it comes to family entertainment.

Things to do in Liverpool

November 28, 2018 admin 2

Liverpool is one of my favourite cities because there is loads to see and do and there is always something new going on from Giant parades, to cultural festival,  and of course the Christmas markets. As well as having loads to see and do there are also lots of lovely hotels in Liverpool and with 3 train stations it’s easily accessible for a day trip or weekend break. If you are thinking of visiting Liverpool […]

Our first visit to VR-here Liverpool

November 27, 2018 admin 0

On Sunday we took the train over to Liverpool and enjoyed a lovely family day out. We started our day with a trip to VR-here Liverpool, which is located just outside of the city center in an industrial area but is within walking distance, even for little legs like those of the tiddler. We hadn’t told the boys where we were headed but as soon as they read the sign outside they were so excited […]

Last night we went to see Beauty and the Beast at St. Helens Theatre Royal which is fast becoming one of our favourite family activities and we are so thrilled that these pantomimes  are now regular school holiday fixtures throughout the year and not just for Christmas, as they really are fabulous.   Having heard us bang on about these shows for the last 12 months it was a real treat for us to be […]

Discovering Spaceport with Mersey Ferries

October 16, 2018 admin 0

Despite living here for the best part of 14 years we had never visited Spaceport or taken the ferry across the Mersey to Liverpool, although we had talked about doing it a few times, that is until this week when we combined both activities and had a fun filled, educational, family Sunday.   We headed over to Spaceport for 10 am when it opened, which I would recommend you do too if you decide to […]

Earlier this year we spent a week on a farm in Kirkby Stephen and had the best time, switching off from the world and enjoying precious family time. We had never been to this part of the country before as we usually venture more towards the Lake District we we were unsure what to do and where to go but we found some great places. Here is a little guide of some of our favourites […]

Our first family visit to the Crocky Trail near Chester

August 16, 2018 admin 5

We have had such a fun filled summer so far with days spent out and about exploring new places, movie nights at home and Pajama days slobbed on the sofa playing computer games and I’m actually starting to look forward to the boys going back to school just for a rest.   This week we had out first family visit to the Crocky Trail near Chester with the boys. My husband and I went 10 […]

There is a new VR experience at Legoland Manchester

August 8, 2018 admin 4

Earlier this week were invited to go and try out the new VR experience at Legoland Manchester and boy were the kids excited. The tiddler was excited for the general day out as he hasn’t been to the Manchester Legoland discovery center since his 4th birthday when he was told he was too young for one of the rides, so he really wanted to go back so he could ‘finally’ go on it and the […]

Our first visit to Tree Top Trek Manchester

August 2, 2018 admin 0

Tree Top Trek Manchester is a high rope course based in Heaton Park, Manchester. It is similar to Go Ape but does have some differences, the main one being that as well as the tree top trek they also have tree top nets that look amazing, think trampolines in the trees and you will have a better idea what I mean. We booked on the Tree Top Trek junior which is available for children from […]

The boys first experience of Go Ape Delamere

July 28, 2018 admin 0

To kick off the school holidays and as a treat for getting fabulous school reports we took the boys to Go Ape Delamere which is a high ropes course at Delamere Forest in Cheshire. I was really apprehensive about letting the boys do this as I struggle with letting them near heights, water, and basically anything else that can be seen as a potential risk, as well as the fact that at 8 and 5 […]
