The Revel Puck Circus Review

We went to the first performance of the Revel Puck Circus in Bristol and were blown away by this unique circus family – for that is what it feels like – with their enthralling and colourful show. As they say, no scary clowns (theirs is as lovable as their tame furry lion), lots of fun […]

The Red Lion, Bristol Old Vic, The Weston Studio Review

This gritty little nugget of a drama revolves around a football club formed over a century ago in a room above a pub called The Red Lion, hence the team name. Fast forward to the 21st century and the passion for it, the team spirit, the hopes and fears of the players and managers alike […]

Jack And The Beanstalk The Playhouse Theatre Review

We were in the mood for a jolly good Panto? – oh yes, we were! Especially after driving through the suburbs of Weston-super-Mare where everybody’s daddy must be an electrician if the quality of the display of outside Christmas lights is anything to go by. The theatre was full right to the ceiling (we know […]

Robin Hood, Bristol Old Vic Review

After a festive cup of mulled wine teeming with seasonal fruits and packing a punch all of its own, we joined a packed auditorium full of excited children to enjoy panto not quite in the traditional form we know it. The Wardrobe Ensemble have highjacked the plot of Robin Hood, given it a good shake […]

Wookey Hole Theatre, Comedy Cavern Review

Wookey Hole Theatre turned itself into the Comedy Cavern for a fabulous one night only, hosting four stand-up comedians for a sparkling evening of witty entertainment that would even get the witch of Wookey cackling. Normally where you would find dancers, trapeze artists and jugglers, there were clowns of a very different variety. We walked […]

The Comedy Box At The Hen & Chicken The Comedy Box is the home of great stand-up in Bristol and to prove that its fame has spread at least two-thirds of the audience at the 6.00 pm show on Saturday night weren’t from Bristol. I longed to asked the large and taciturn man in front […]

Västerås Sinfonietta, St George’s Bristol

Review 16th February 2020 Västerås Sinfonietta travelled from their home city in Sweden to play for us last night and almost didn’t make it due to Storm Dennis in which case their programme entitled ‘Wind, Waves and Forest Murmurs’ seemed all the more appropriate. Conducted by Simon Crawford-Phillips featuring soloists Paul Watkins on cello and […]
