The passengers aboard the Avalon space ship are flying across space, asleep in hibernation pods to embark on a 125-year journey to their new world, Homeland II.  The plot begins when one of the pods malfunctions and Jim Preston (Chris Pratt) wakes up ninety years too early.  He finds himself alone with only a robot …Read More


Food Review: 1847 Modern Vegetarian

Being a vegetarian (and now vegan) can often be annoying when it comes to looking at places to go out for dinner. When going out with my non-veggie/vegan friends, I’m often swamped with the same choice of a generic vegetable pasta dish or some fancied up piece of salad. Despite the choice being adequate and …Read More


Travel Review: From St Petersburg with Love

There is no other prominent symbol of Eastern Europe than Russia. It’s not your usual trip to say the least but it will be an experience.

‘Hello Birmingham! Two words together that do not suggest a career on the rise’   Drag queens, standup comedy and musicals: three ingredients that I was pretty sure would make for an ideal Friday night out. I am an unashamed musical theatre fan, as well as being a hardcore RuPaul’s Drag Race obsessive, so I …Read More

Review: 3BUGS presents ‘Rules for Living’ by Sam Holcroft

Rating: 5 stars Will Jackson’s latest directing endeavour, ‘Rules For Living’ by Sam Holcroft, truly encapsulates the hellish nature and loathing bubbling beneath every dysfunctional family’s traditional annual Christmas gathering; the lifelong sibling rivalries, the suppressed resentments, the relationships strained to breaking point, a love that can’t be declared out loud. This play has it …Read More


BBC Good Food Show 2016

Good food. It was something I was unfamiliar with on a daily basis, living on a student budget and not being one to be especially creative or adventurous in the kitchen. With my repertoire ranging from ‘anything you can put in a bagel’ to ‘is it microwavable’; you could say I was a blank canvas …Read More
