Arts & Culture Round-up: Curtains up!

This month we have been inundated with theatre, it has really become a favourite past-time for many, and I am no exception, I love all the different genre, from ballet to rock band stories, there really is something for everyone, and the great part is, it can be enjoyed alone, as a couple or an entire family.

Arts & Culture covers much more than just theatre, so don’t worry we haven’t forgotten the castles and the museums, I just love the diversity of the subject. So, to begin with, I shall give you all of the different shows that have been attended throughout April and May (I have no idea where the year is going)

Theatre for Adults

There have been quite a few bloggers going along to see Wonderland The Musical, if you are planning on seeing this in 2017, check out the thoughts of Boo Roo and Tigger Too, An Organised Mess, Verily Victoria Vocalises, Practically Perfect Mums and Emmys Mummy. Or maybe Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, reviewed by Cardiff Mummys Says and An Organised Mess, Casanova anyone? Find out what An Organised Mess thought of the Northern Ballet production. Yorkshire Wonders went to see Tenant at Wildfell Hall. An Organised Mess gave her thoughts on How My Light is spent and Escape The Scaffold, and we had an amazing time watching Running Wild and we sang some tunes with Sunny Afternoon and Million Dollar Quartet. Mama Mei watched The Empty Nesters Club.

We have had some lovely family visits to the theatre, I love seeing the reactions of the different aged children, if you have not yet taken your child to the theatre, check out Happy Mummy’s Top 5 Tips on taking a young child to the theatre.
