BBC Good Food Show Summer 2017

As a student, there are two things which hold a very important place in my day-to-day life; food and free stuff. Therefore, I was over the moon to discover that in my new role as Head of Arts, I am able to attend and review the BBC Good Food Show, an event dedicated to these …Read More



Theatre Review: Billy Elliot

After a twelve-year run on the West End, Billy Elliot comes to the Birmingham Hippodrome until April 29th. Many may have seen the film, but it was a packed audience whilst I was there – and rightly so. The triumphant story of Billy, an 11-year-old boy, who, with the help of his gutsy dance teacher …Read More

Travel Review: From New York with Love

The Big Apple, The Empire State, the City that Never Sleeps. Just to name a few of New York City’s nicknames. It’s truly a city that is so good that of course it was named twice. There are so many different reasons to fall in love with this incredible city. For me it was the …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. Although Moscow is the capital city I say pick St Petersburg over it any day with its elegance and colourful streets that will amaze you. The biggest shock, especially …Read More
