Review: Getting Our Game On at Electric Gamebox, Manchester.

When an email dropped into my inbox inviting us to try out Electric Gamebox I was excited to see what it involved. Step into the Gamebox and enter a private, fully interactive digital room featuring projection mapping, touch screens, motion tracking and surround sound to enjoy a hyper-immersive 60 minute adventure. Admittedly, I’d not heard…

Review: We’re Quackers for Thornbridge Hall & Gardens

Living in Leek means that we are in Staffordshire but also right on the border of both Cheshire and Derbyshire so our days out tend to flit between the three counties. Now, I like to think I know of most places within our local area but during the Easter holidays we discovered a real hidden…

Review: Our Autumn Campervan Adventure in Rooby Doo

This year has been tough (I think we can ALL agree on that!) and getting away to the Lake District for October Half Term was just the tonic we needed. You may think that anything past September in the UK is a no go for staying in a campervan but trust me, we had the…

Review: The Snowman Tour 2019

We’re now into Autumn, the leaves are starting to fall and therefore I’m declaring it perfectly acceptable to start talking about Christmas! Yaay!

Review: Just So Festival 2019, The One With All The Mud!

Just So 2019 will go down in history, maybe because it was the 10th birthday of the now well established festival, but mainly because it was the year of ALL THE MUD! It certainly was NOT for the faint hearted! I‘ll quickly explain that this was our first time at Just So…and, did the conditions…
