A look back at 2008 in film!

I thought it was about time to take a little look back at the world of film a whole decade ago, yes really we have had Heath Ledger’s Joker for that long now! I was seriously hoping for a re-release at the cinema in all honesty, felt it would have been perfect to celebrate the 10th anniversary.

2017 at the Theatre

This is my overview of 2017 at the Theatre which has been a very special year with plenty of trips to London and even a trip to New York and squeezing in some Broadway shows. All to go along with the trips to Newcastle’s Theatre Royal and the Sunderland Empire to catch the latest UK touring shows.

In 2016 I managed to see 31 shows. In 2017 I managed to see 36 shows! So just beating the 2016 total! You can see a list of all of these shows here. This also included trying to get plenty of deals and really using the day seats to help save money.
