A review of Ordsall Hall in Salford

April 23, 2019 admin 0

Over the Easter holidays we were invited to Manchester for a day out. We started off at Salford Museum and Art Gallery and then after lunch we headed to Ordsall Hall in Salford which is a free attraction for everyone to enjoy. We hadn’t been to Ordsall Hall before and weren’t to sure what to expect but if I ask you to imagine a national trust property then you can probably imagine something very similar, […]

Salford Museum and Art Gallery

April 15, 2019 admin 0

During the Easter holidays the boys and I were invited over to Salford Museum and Art Gallery, an attraction that is totally free to the public. Despite having visited Manchester several times and enjoying nothing more than a free day out and educational places we hadn’t even heard of the Salford museum and Art Gallery, let alone visited and if I am to be totally honest I think I would have avoided it as the […]

The Wizard of Oz at St.Helens Theatre Royal 2019

April 7, 2019 admin 1

Last night we went to watch the opening night of The Wizard of Oz at St.Helens Theatre Royal, our favourite place for pantomimes and once again we spent the evening belly laughing from start to finish. I always worry that there will come a time when these pantomimes will start to feel a bit samey samey as we go as regularly as we can and yet each time I leave feeling shocked at how they have […]

Our first visit to Warwick Castle

February 27, 2019 admin 2

During Feb half term we headed to Devon for a week, breaking the journey there up with a few days at my brothers and breaking the journey home up with a day at Warwick Castle. As a family we love visiting new places, exploring old stately homes and examining castles, but Warwick Castle is one of the few we hadn’t visited so being invited during half term made for a lovely treat.   Warwick castle […]

Our review of Pennywell Farm in Devon

February 25, 2019 admin 3

Last week we visited family in South Devon and spent time exploring the local area with a ride on a steam train, walks on the beach and drives through the most picturesque parts of the country. Whilst there we were lucky enough to invited over to Pennywell Farm for the day which is only a 30 minute car journey from Paignton where we were staying, so of course we agreed.   Being lovers of outdoor […]

Continental Circus Berlin is at Manchester Event City Now

February 13, 2019 admin 2

On Sunday my family and I were invited over to Manchester Event City to watch Continental Circus Berlin and having absolutely loved  Circus Extreme last year we were really looking forward to it. Once again we were thrilled to see that the circus was taking place the UK’s largest big top that looks like it has come straight out of The Greatest Showman and adds a real buzz of excitement and extra authenticity to the show. […]

February 5, 2019 admin 4

Last year we had the absolute pleasure of being invited to watch The Snowman Tour at Warrington Parr Hall  and I can honestly say we all loved it, even more than I expected to. So, this year when we were asked if we would be interested in working with Carrot productions again for their upcoming tour of Wallace & Gromit’s Musical Marvels we just had to agree and I can’t urge you to book tickets enough […]

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.
