After The Bloggers’ Bash Special

The lovely Hugh, whom I met at the Blogger Bash in London, posted this list of all the bloggers, plus pictures and a link to a video of all of us! Check it out!

Hugh's Views & News  

It’s been a whole week since the first Annual Bloggers’ Bash and the first Annual Bloggers’ Bash Awards were held in London.  However, the day itself is still very much on my mind.

If we were having coffee I’d be telling you about the Bloggers’ Bash.  Haven’t seen the video yet of all the bloggers who attended, introducing themselves? Then click here and meet the group.

I was very nervous when the day finally arrived.  I’d only ever spoken to Sacha, Ali and Geoff via Google Meet Ups.  However, I received the biggest hugs I’d ever received from people I’d never met before and Geoff presented me with a lovely bunch of sweet peas from his garden.  By the time we sat down and were eating breakfast you could have sworn we’d all known each other for years.

Hilarious, deep-reaching & charming: Constellations at Trafalgar Studios, London

What if all the things you’ve ever done, and all the things you’ve never done, existed side by side? What would your relationship be like?

That’s the premise of Constellations, a play by Nick Payne, which ended its run at Trafalgar Studios in London on August 1.

Starring Louise Brealey (Sherlock, Delicious) as Marianne, and Joe Armstrong (Happy Valley, The Village) as Roland, Constellations explores the various ways their relationship could have gone.

If We Were Having Coffee… On August 1

Hello, my lovelies!

If you’re joining me for this week’s Weekend Coffee Share, you’ll be joining me on the busy streets of London! Welcome!

If we were having coffee today, I’d first of all tell you about last weekend, as I was in Warrington and Manchester then. I had an absolute blast with my bestie. We spent all of Saturday shopping in Manchester, and returned to Warrington knackered but in an extremely good mood.

Summer of Theatre

My plans for my London trip are taking shape, and while I still want to explore the city and visit a few spots I’ve longed to see for a long time, it is shaping up to be my summer of theatre.

The whole reason why I’m going to London in the first place is that I managed to get a ticket for the highly sought-after performance of Hamlet at the Barbican, starring Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, The Imitation Game).

Tickets for Hamlet went on sale in August 2014 and were sold out within 8 hours. That’s right, a Shakespeare play out-sold Beyoncé and Jay Z combined!

Energetic and intimate theatre – Richard III at Trafalgar Studios, London

This is one of my real-life writing samples. I’m a trained journalist, so I sometimes write theatre reviews. This one I’m particularly proud of, as it combined a trip to London (I’m based in Germany), my favourite actor and Shakespeare.

It’s a review of Trafalgar Transformed Season 2: “Richard III” at Trafalgar Studios, London, which ran from 1st July 2014 until 27th September 2014, starring Martin Freeman.

First published on Fernweh & Wanderlust on 27th July 2014.
