Norwich and Norfolk Operatic Society (NNOS) are sure to raise your spirits higher than any stiletto or platform with their 2023 production of Kinky Boots.
This uplifting musicalheads to Norwich Theatre Royal stage from 31 Jan – 4 Feb 23. With a talented cast and live band, this new show follows in the footsteps of NNOS’ successful production, The Sound of Music, in 2022.
On Saturday we kicked of half term with a bang by attending the opening night of Fire on The Water: Beach Edition in Great Yarmouth. We didn’t visit last year so we were ready for a surprise and my gosh it is a spectacle.
We started the night in Embar, a lovely tented area with comfy sofas and little tables where you can go to enjoy a drink and a snack. It was lovely to listen to the opening speeches and just sense the excitement of all those who had put in so much hard work and were about to see the fruits of their labour. After the opening celebrations had finished the three of us headed out to see all that Fire on the Water had to offer.
We love a trip to Great Yarmouth, it’s always a fun day out. Here are our top 5 favourite things to do when we visit. There is so much to see and do this is just a quick whistlestop tour, for the best up to date information I would always suggest heading to Visit Great Yarmouth.
With last year being as rubbish as it was when it came to festive celebrations and general joy, we were super excited to visit the entirely Covid Safe experience offered by Silverstone and the amazing Lap of Lights. It surpassed all expectations and we had the best time. This year with everything looking a bit cheerier and restrictions not being as harsh we were delighted to go back and see what was on offer for 2021.
Join Norwich Theatre for some fun-packed family days and fantastic shows during the school holidays! From singing to crafting, science trails to TV stars, there are many ways for everyone to get involved this half term [25 – 29 October].
Norwich Theatre covers three stages in the city: Norwich Theatre Royal, Playhouse and Stage Two and all are getting involved. As the city celebrates its annual Science Festival, Norwich Theatre is excited to be joining in and exploring science through creativity!
Halloween is one of my favourite holidays. The pumpkins, the weather, the fact hot chocolates are now acceptable and all the colours and fun that come with it. It’s not just for kids and it’s not just about Trick or Treating.
Always one of our favourite days out we headed to Pensthorpe Natural Park at the weekend to check out what they were up to this summer.
We started our trip with a visit to Hootz House indoor play, but upon setting foot inside L decided he’d rather be out in the sunshine. Fair enough! So we spent the first hour playing outdoors and making the most of all the play equipment on offer. It was a lot quieter in the morning than when we walked through later in the day so that’s worth remembering.
Yesterday we headed to Amazona Zoo in Cromer to spend a fun summer day with friends. As well as seeing all the animals and having lots of fun in the play area we also ventured across the carpark for a round of Football Golf.
It’s safe to say the kids had a blast. Whilst at the zoo they spent most of their time on the play area. With the one a system that is currently in place the free flow nature of the zoo has been lost and a few quite significant areas have been cordoned off, which for a small zoo was a big deal. This meant that once they were at the play area they were reluctant to leave as they were aware it wouldn’t be so easy to get back to. It didn’t stop the fun though.
On Saturday L and I headed off to Raynham Estate to explore the woods and see what we could find. UK Adventure Trails promised animals, aliens, fairies and more. A fun woodland trail that should take around 45-60 minutes to complete.
