Recreating the Movie 11 – Lego Batman!

I decided to wait a few days before adding another movie recreation to the blog after the London trip last week. The Lego shop recently opened in Leicester Square but it has always had a queue and I decided it wasn’t really worth queuing, how wrong that is! Such an impressive shop with so many incredible Lego creations.

With Lego Batman movie out they had a very cool Batman made from Lego! I still need to try and see the film!

Stage Door – Whoopi Goldberg

Arrived in London ready to see Whoopi Goldberg at the London Palladium on Saturday night doing her first ever UK stand up show. By total fluke I found out a few days ago that she was going to be on Friday’s Loose Women so we decided to try and see her coming out after the show finished.

Competition: 100 Streets

Today marks the release of 100 Streets on DVD in the UK and to celebrate I have a DVD to give away to one lucky person who is based in the UK.

Idris Elba and Gemma Arterton star in ‘A Hundred Streets’, a layered and gripping drama, which takes a fresh look at the vibrant and compelling life of residents in contemporary London – destination capital of the world. Emmy and Golden Globe nominated Jim O’Hanlon directs.

Theatre: Hamilton Tickets!

ham-fb_zps76ycztug

Lin-Manuel Miranda is pretty amazing let’s face it In The Heights is an incredible show and he has been taking Broadway by storm with Hamilton was has been pretty impossible to get tickets for by the sounds of it!

When it was announced that the show would be coming to the West End I just knew that meant I would be having another trip to London. So signed up for the priority access which was open from June to October 2016, I am assuming I signed up in June.

Theatre: West End – Day Seats

Over the years I have spend hundreds of pounds, actually probably closing in if not over a thousand. I would honestly be too scared to count up all of the ticket prices on shows both as touring versions coming to the North East and on many trips down to London for the West End shows.

With all of that though I also stumbled across something called “day seats” if you are not aware these are seats that are sold cheaper on the day of the show direct from the Theatre it is being performed at, usually opening at 10am.

Most day seats were kept in the front row, but that depends on Theatre/Show.

2016 at the Theatre

Here I go with an overview of my 2016 of theatre trips to see musicals and plays. Touring shows that have come to the North East at the Theatre Royal in Newcastle and the Sunderland Empire. As well as managing to have a few trips down to London to take in what the West End has to offer! You can check out the list of shows here. I have somehow managed to out do 2015 catching 31 shows in 2016!
