Just two weeks after the UK celebrated 100 years of women having the right to vote, I was immersed in the musical spectacular, put on by the Guild Musical Theatre Group, feminist festival that is ‘Made in Dagenham’. As a massive fan of the gritty film, I was thrilled to be seeing this epic tale …Read More


The Lion King – Theatre Review

Everyone raved about The Lion King being a must-see and as it was my child-hood favourite movie I thought it was about time I went and saw it.  And it was AMAZING! It being the highest grossing stage show in history does not surprise me. I’m sure you all know the story and if you …Read More


The Darkness of Robins – Comedy Review

★★★★★ 5.0 stars   Never before have I left a comedy show feeling so much sympathy and remorse for the comedian. This harrowing, emotional and poignant piece of stand-up, at times induced grimacing reactions from the audience, and others, raucous laughter. John Robins himself has been in the comedy scene since 2005, before which he …Read More

I mean, when anyone has asked me what I’ve thought, I’ve reverted to the old cliché ‘I have no words’ every time. But I do, and I’m here to join the (still) …Read More


Mowgli – Restaurant Review

Mowgli first caught my eye back in late 2017 when I saw the extravagant exterior being installed at Birmingham’s Grand Central station, deep inky walls and swinging chairs got me with an easy aesthetic win. From then its foodie allure remained a rumour only sparked again when my housemate filled me in on all its …Read More

Slice at the MAC – Review

An intriguing display of work from third year students studying Contemporary Practice at the University of Birmingham. The reason for going to this showcase was a result of a lecture announcement made by a third year student and an email sent out. After friends of mine expressed their interest to go along, I thought it …Read More


Dream Girls – Theatre Review

I cannot sing the praises of this musical enough. Not knowing much about the show prior to seeing it, I was blown away by the goose bump-inducing musical talent and the powerful story the show offered. This story follows, three, young, black girls on their journey to become the ‘The Dreams.’ The girls begin participating …Read More
