THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS :: THE LOWRY, MANCHESTER


Twee, heartwarming and alive with song, The Wind in the Willows has survived the transition from childhood to adulthood and is captivating from start to finish.


Poop Poop! Who remembers Kenneth Grahame's classic tale, The Wind in the Willows, from their childhood days? I've no doubt many primary teachers tried to introduce me to this classic text, but somehow, it passed me by. Arriving at The Lowry, for The Wind in the Willows' Press Night, John and I tried to recall a story famous to us only by name. Brought to life by producer Jamie Hendry, writer Julian Fellow, composer George Stiles and lyricist Anthony Drewe, we discovered the tale to be captivating from start to finish.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!



Happy Halloween! 


Whether you celebrate Halloween or not, you have to agree that, aesthetically, this time of year is pretty pleasing. Throughout the month of October, I  have taken pleasure in seeing things slowly transform ready for the season: driving under the boughs of autumnal trees and watching the leaves gracefully dance through the air, seeing carved pumpkins appear in the windows of my neighbours' houses and of course, fashion drops of quirky, Halloween inspired clothes.
