Last week I was invited the Wolverhampton Grand Theatre to see the new renovations that have been undertaken.  The interiors have been beautifully renovated in a Great Gatsby feel and are truly stunning; dark greys, white and mustard tones truly bring the theatre to life. Upstairs there is the newly renovated Arthur’s bar which is sponsored by Arthur Price Cutlery a 5 generation local family business.  The bar also has a number of private drinks booths which can be used by parties during theatre performances for at the table service during the intervals.  They are beautifully lit and give that… View Post

This time last year whilst still living in Wales we had a spare day with nothing to do and I really wanted to not waste the day and hang around at home. Off on the train we went up the Cambrian coast to visit Portmeirion; a specially built Italian inspired village nestled in beautiful woodland on the coast. It is so beautiful there. We chose a dry but slightly cloudy day but still had such a lovely time walking around. All the buildings are painted in such calming Mediterranean colours  with statutes and beautiful gardens. We had a beautiful lunch if… View Post
