It’s Panto Time

2017-12-13T13:21:52+00:00 December 13th, 2017|Christmas, Fun-for-all, Great For Kids|

Key Theatre panto 2017 Sleeping Beauty Well what a surprise this was. I've not been to a pantomime for a good few years (over 20 years to be honest) and after receiving an invite to go, I thought I'd give it a go. No kids in tow as they have all flown the nest, but I was open to see what it was all about these days. The Key Theatre looks a treat all decorated up for Christmastime and on entering the foyers there's kiddy choices straight in view... sparkling whirling light toys as well as plenty

What a great night we had tonight at Trapp'd. We were invited back to try their second escape game Madame Curio’s Cirque Delirium, and oh my gosh, what a surprise we had in there. People are going missing and you need to work out why. You’ll step back into a fairground-circus theme giving you a fun-filled evening without a doubt. It’s great for all ages and definitely one for the kids. You’ll be game playing, counting, hooking ducks, searching for the smallest of clues, anddeciphering codes... it’s all about teamwork as well as individual challenges. So why not jump on

Get your skates on!

2017-11-26T14:41:48+00:00 November 26th, 2017|Christmas, Fun-for-all, Great For Kids|

We caught a few of you skating today - were you there? Ice-skating is going well at Van Hage today. Have you been yet? They've had their ice-skating rink opened for a little while now and people are taking up the challenge to come out wit their kids and give it a go. It's great as each session lasts 45 minutes so plenty of time for a workout if you need one and the kids I'm sure will be exhausted by then. For the smaller nippers they've got penguins that can be hired which will keep them

Oasis Monogramming

2017-10-20T12:45:44+00:00 October 20th, 2017|Shopping, Uniqueness|

You don’t want to miss out on this fabulous offer I came across at Oasis in Queensgate. They have a monogramming machine that can emboss on to their selection of gloves and bags. I asked Chloe all about it: There’s a maximum of 10 letters (usually £5 for the service). Foils are available gold, silver and rose gold as well as embossing with no colour. It can be done on selected lines but the staff will guide you on the bag of your choice due to thickness, positioning and material- Leather is best. Bags make an ideal gift starting

2017-10-18T13:20:54+00:00 October 18th, 2017|Escapologists!, Fun-for-all, Must Do-Visit-See, Uniqueness|

Howdy partners... we’ve had an ‘ace-high’ time tonight down at Red Rock and ‘Blazing saddles’ we managed to skedaddle out of there... and we’re feeling rather ‘flush’. What are we jabbering on about? There’s a fabulous new escape room hidden away at the Greyhound stadium at Fengate. There’ll be no ‘namby-pambying’ around and you’ll be dusting the sawdust from your brain with this western themed room. Our team of 4 bandits were digging up all sorts of mind-boggling clues...at one point we thought we were ‘goners’... But we made it out alive using our skill to rob the bank for

Chocolate Making & City College

2017-10-14T18:20:55+00:00 October 14th, 2017|Chocolate Heaven, Great Food, Must Do-Visit-See, Uniqueness|

A little while back the City College Peterborough brought out their 2017/2018 catalogue for small courses and the one to catch my eye, obviously, was:  'Sweets & Chocolate Making: Would you like to be able to make your own handmade chocolates, sweets and marzipan fruits? This short course will demonstrate how to make your own sweets and how to box them to give as gifts.' Errr - yes! Even though I've not done a course at the college for around 12 years I booked in anticipation of learning something new! (Just £22 for 3 hours - bargain!) And, what a

So I decided to take a walk into town and have a look at the new Yankee Candle Peterborough today which opened on Tuesday. They've got a big store showing their whole range.
