Matilda The Musical | Mayflower Theatre

Matilda is one of those childhood novels that will forever hold a special place in my heart. Written by renowned author Roald Dahl, the novel tells the story of Matilda, a gifted young girl and her relationship with her family and school. When I heard that the stage show adaptation of this classic novel was coming to Southampton, I was over the moon. I was lucky enough to attend the show with the Southampton Bloggers* and couldn't wait to join the others for a night of whimsicalness.

The Bodyguard | Mayflower Theatre

The Bodyguard, the iconic 1992 film featuring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner, with some of the most incredible songs. I love the film and when I saw that the story had been adapted for stage, I knew I'd have to watch it at some point. Fast forward a few years, and it hit the stage at the Mayflower Theatre and I was invited along as part of the Southampton Bloggers to review the performance - how could I say no?

Book Haul | May 2019

It's been a while since my last book haul, so another one was well overdue, right? This year, I've fallen back in love with book buying and growing my book collection (I've totally accepted that I'm a collector now), which means I've now accumulated a little collection of books I want to share with you.

The Great Gatsby | Mayflower Theatre

I have loved The Great Gatsby for the longest time - I read it for the first time when I was at sixth form college, and instantly fell in love with the writing and the characters. As well as being a fabulous read, it's been adapted for film, and now it's been turned into a ballet. I went to the ballet (for the first and only time) for my 21st birthday and loved the whole experience. So when I heard that the Northern Ballet were bringing their performance of The Great Gatsby to the Mayflower, I jumped at the chance to watch it*.
