and when I am not reading 2017

I like to do other things.

Fiction

Arena theater Wolverhampton

Sat in complete darkness with earphones you are transported into a dream world. Unbelievable good, at times it was hard not to believe Juliet wasn’t really sat beside you whispering in you ear. If it come’s to your part of the world give it a go.

The Grand Hotel Birmingham

Segundo De Chomon A night of very old (1900s) silent movies with live music. This was part of The Flatpack Festival and held in the Grosvenor room of The Grand Hotel which is under going restoration, so it was a good chance to take a last look at the ballroom before they start work on it.
