Happy Halloween!

Today is Halloween and although in the Uk we do not celebrate it anywhere like they do in the USA, we do have our features. Check out our Theme Parks and Bars for Halloween Festivities.

Spamalot – Monty Pyton

15th Oct, 2008 |

If you are a Monty Pyton fan then you should go to watch Spamalot. Spamalot is lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Pyton and the Holy Grail and is a new musical directed by Mike Nichols. And honestly, it has nothing to do with Spam!!

It is side grippingly funny, that even when I went (and was not in a particularly good mood) left with my sides aching from the silliness! This was a year ago and I still smile when I think about it. I would happily watch again.


Phantom of the Opera

9th Oct, 2008 |

The Phantom of the Opera is one of the best Musicals ever. If you have not seen it, then you must make a point of going. If you only ever watch one show on Broadway / in the West End, then it really should be The Phantom of the Opera.

It is known for being the World’s most haunting Love Story. (Don’t take your girlfriend there if you don’t want her to fill up with wedding ideas – Just Kidding!)

It is an Andrew Lloyd Webber production which opened today 23 years ago and is still going strong, which goes to show just how good it is. It is currently playing at Her Majesty’s Theatre, Haymarket, London – SW1Y 4QL.

It won’t be on forever, so book your tickets now!
