We’re Going On A Bear Hunt Review

We’re Going On A Bear Hunt, the children’s story by Michel Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury.  You’ve heard of the book right? Well, I have a confession to make.

Family Theatre In #Nottingham @LakesideArts

I hate to say it but I think summer is almost done.  The days are getting shorter and the weather is getting wetter and colder by the minute.   The reality for us parents though is that the kids still need entertaining and getting out of the house, before everyone goes up the wall.  As we go rushing into autumn…

Last year we took Princess along to see Peppa Pig’s Big Splash Tour.  We went with friends, who have a little girl who is also a big Peppa Pig fan.  I’d go so far as to say bigger than Princess!
