Before more time escapes, or I get distracted by something else, here are a few of the things I’ve loved lately, from the first two-and-a-bit months of 2022.
AD - Press ticket | I was invited along to Beats and Eats Southampton, run by The Village Popup, who work to bring events like this to us lot in the south of the UK. It promised a day of great food accompanied by great music – a winning combination!
AD - PR ticket | Being well aware of my reignited love of art, local illustrator Amy Harwood kindly invited me a long to one of her first 'in person' workshops since the pandemic began – a botanical lettering event hosted in Southampton city-centre eatery The Lunch Lounge.
[AD - Press ticket] I was recently invited along to see Willy Russell’s legendary Blood Brothers at Mayflower Theatre, as part of its UK tour.
I'm VERY excited to share that I'm in the final two in a local neon artwork commission!
I was asked by my colleagues to write a poem about our city for Valentine's Day 2021 – a love letter to our south-coast city.
From recipe kits and takeaways to cakes through the post, I wanted to share a few of our favourite foodie delivery services to enjoy during lockdown.
[Press theatre tickets] Southampton's Mayflower Theatre has reopened its doors and is dipping its toes tentatively into the world of post-lockdown events.
NST Young Company has continued to conjure up new worlds and stories in both the absence of their theatrical home, and the challenging environment of lockdown.
Southampton has so much to offer, both for visitors and residents alike, and I will never get tired of it. Spend more than a few hours exploring our streets, buildings and spaces, and you’ll find a place full of heart, community and creativity.
