That Festive Feeling

I’m not known for being the biggest fan of Christmas. I don’t hate it, but I’m not a super fan of the actual day it’s self. Or the greed and need for everything to be perfect. It’s all a bit of an anticlimax if you ask me. I’m not ungrateful, I love giving and receiving… Continue reading That Festive Feeling

The Magical Latitude Festival

As you know I've become quite a regular at Latitude Festival in Suffolk over the past few years. One of my favourite places on earth, after the first year I went, in 2012 I knew I'd have to return every year. This was my 6th consecutive visit.   I advise here that you read my… Continue reading The Magical Latitude Festival

Elbowed in the Forest

I've been a fan of Elbow around 15 years. I like to think of myself as one of the early day fans, I enjoyed their music before it was cool to enjoy it, before some tunes became overplayed on the radio, before they were 'mainstream'. I have been lucky enough to see them play live… Continue reading Elbowed in the Forest

I Got a Golden Ticket – Ed Sheeran

You may have read my previous post a few days ago declaring I'd had a busy week, one deserving of two blog posts. Well here's the second significant man. Ed Sheeran. (The first man can be found here.) Do you remember my rant back in February 'The Elusive Golden Ticket - Ed Sheeran'? If you haven't… Continue reading I Got a Golden Ticket – Ed Sheeran

Russell Brand Re:Birth – Norwich

What a week it has been! A week so full it's worthy of two blog posts, both involving some important men in my life. Let's begin with the first significant man, Russell Brand. (You can read about the second one here.)   Monday marked my 6th time seeing this splendid chap. Don't judge, I'm not some… Continue reading Russell Brand Re:Birth – Norwich

It’s The DOD – David O’Doherty at Norwich Playhouse

Norwich Playhouse is one of my favourite places, and has been for a few years now. I properly discovered this arty venue while I was studying my MA at Norwich University of the Arts, which main building is situated just opposite. This cosy, friendly, quirky bar and theatre became my second home. The relaxing atmosphere perfect… Continue reading It’s The DOD – David O’Doherty at Norwich Playhouse

Spontaneity and The Noise Next Door

I was spontaneous! I did something spur of the moment! By spur of the moment I mean I went to a gig 4 days after booking tickets. So close to the gig date that I couldn't have the tickets posted. That's how cool I am... I had to collect them. Calm down I hear you… Continue reading Spontaneity and The Noise Next Door

The Elusive Golden Ticket – Ed Sheeran

Like 50,000,000 other people yesterday (I don't know exact figures) I tried to purchase tickets to see Ed Sheeran. Like 49,998,531 (again just a guesstimate) of these people I failed. In my opinion there are 3 main reasons that I failed to get tickets. Reason number one: awful, smug, money making ticket touting websites. Reason… Continue reading The Elusive Golden Ticket – Ed Sheeran

Comedy and Cafes

I really enjoy going to the theatre. One of my favourite ways to spend an evening out is watching live comedy. Having a laugh is good for the soul, it takes you away from daily life for a couple of hours. It puts you in the mind of somebody else, their quirks and opinions. This… Continue reading Comedy and Cafes

Latitude 2016 – Festival of Fairytales (and my fragile neck)

Being a massive festival lover (there's probably a tiny hippy hidden within me somewhere), I ventured on my 5th consecutive trip to Latitude Festival in July this year.   I've been to a few festivals, including Reading and V Festival, but Latitude is by far my favourite. It's like my happy place. It's a festival… Continue reading Latitude 2016 – Festival of Fairytales (and my fragile neck)
