Hello all. Yes, that's right, another theatre review, and this time it's a festive one; and there's a bit of a twist!

This year's Mayflower pantomime is even better than the last and is definitely one of the best I've had the pleasure of seeing. It is a truly classic production.
Poem | The wake-up call
At the weekend, I attended a Christmas poetry workshop run by the brilliant Artfulscribe in Southampton. We were asked to create a piece reflecting on a childhood Christmas memory; this is what I came up with. Merry Christmas!
