Festival Food Packing List: What to Take to Camp Bestival

Last week I teased you with all the delicious dining experiences available at Camp Bestival. Of course all this gastro indulgence can get expensive, so you definitely need to bring your own food supplies as back-up. We’ve gone to our last two festivals by train and my biggest concern was not having too much to…

The Elephantom at New London Theatre (Family Theatre Review)

    A little girl wakes up to find a ghostly elephant in her bedroom. At first, it’s all fun and games but before long, the Elephantom becomes too big to handle. He farts, he bounces, he breaks things and he sends her parents (who can’t even see him) half-way round the bend. It’s up…

Laughing Larry Zug Rug

Meet the Zugs (Cool Carpets for Kids)

Laughing Larry arrived at ours all trussed up in an intriguing red package. Breaking him free was like breaking into Fort Knox. But he was definitely worth the wait. Even if the first thing I did was take off my shoes and walk all over him. Who is Larry and why is he so gosh…

Babes Q&A with Perri and Jordan of Diversity! (British Gas Generation Green)

‘Coooool!’ Ezra shouted when I told the babes they’d been invited to interview Perri and Jordan of Diversity dance troupe last week.
