Matilda The Musical Review - Mayflower Southampton

When I was growing up, my favourite book character was Matilda. A little girl with as much heart and strength as those so much bigger than her. I would sit and devour books and watch the film to my hearts content. Since having a child myself, I've tried to instil that fearlessness and fantastic qualities that Matilda embodied as he has grown up.

Matilda first hit on the musical scene in 2010 and has shot into worldwide popularity as its won countless awards and wowed millions of audience members. Currently, it's on its UK tour and is stopping at our favourite local theatre, The Mayflower in Southampton. We were lucky enough to be invited along to see it for ourself, and I couldn't work out who was more excited... me or Max!

The Great Wonderfest - A brand new family festival.

Finding a new family festival is quite an exciting experience. Not only is it another excuse to bring out the tent and spend time with the family, but it's also an opportunity to experience the magic of festivals for another weekend of the year. 

This year, festival veterans Dick & Dom are taking on the adventure of bringing their own festival to the Isle of Wight. Named The Great Wonderfest, it's set to be a weekend full of curiosities, wellbeing, fun and music! And I've got to say that at first look, I'm incredibly impressed!

A Family Day out In Bournemouth

We are some of the fortunate ones to live in Bournemouth. With an award winning sea on one side of the town and a brilliant forest on the other, it's easy to see why it's such a fantastic tourist destination all year round. But whilst there are lots of chain restaurants and obvious things to do for families, we wanted to showcase some of the ways we love to enjoy a day together in our hometown. For those coming further afield, there are plenty of hotels in Bournemouth to suit everyone's budgets. But here's what we got up to during one day in Bournemouth.
