Booking Accessible Tickets – Mission (almost) Impossible

Warning: this post may contain rants. In fact it is probably one big long rant! So Muse are on tour again, my single favourite band in the world. I loved them as a teen and then saw them at V Festival 2004. Why does 2004 not sound that long ago when it’s actually almost 15… Continue reading Booking Accessible Tickets – Mission (almost) Impossible

Bums and Bubble Tea – Latitude Festival

You’ll know by now I love a festival, and Latitude Festival is by far my favourite. It’s magical, eclectic, arty and fairly civilised. I attended again this year for the 7th year in a row. I’ve raved about (in written form, I am not much of a raver in the other sense) Latitude Festival before… Continue reading Bums and Bubble Tea – Latitude Festival

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

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

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)
