ITV: Great Characters – Vera

Every single time I see this amazing little promo for Vera I totally love it! So much so I felt I needed to appreciate it in this blog post. Brenda Blethyn is truly outstanding as Vera with the series set in the North East and filmed on many locations. I love to watch it and try to spot moments which are in South Shields!

I feel her Geordie accent is always spot on and impressive, it’s great to see different locations in the North East shown throughout this tv series. Plus an older woman in the leading role is always a good thing too!

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.

8304FE31-A395-4240-8503-6698647FCD69

Show Date: Saturday 16th December 2017 (6:30pm)

Many years ago now I remember seeing The Lambton Worm pantomime at The Customs House in South Shields and how different it was talking on a folk song from Sunderland and transforming it into a very unique Pantomime. When they announced doing it again this year due to it being the 150th anniversary for the song, I just knew I had to go and see this show!
