My lovely goddaughter Amy is studying Performing Arts at school so this year Ive got myself a theatre buddy. Our first outing was to see Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy's "Rats' Tales" in the fantastic Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester.
The theatre itself is worth a visit, it is a stunning building and the production was fantastic with each tale flowing seamlessly into the next, holding your attention throughout the whole performance.
It was also a great opportunity for me to go and spend some of my Christmas money in Paperchase.
I am planning to use some of the papers on the course I am doing.
So watch this space.
Our next outing is the tour of the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester. We will hear about why the building is built on springs and all about the acoustics. This will be great for Amy as she is currently studying lighting and sound.
Great for me to it means I get to play out.
