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

Outlaws of Red Rock – Escape!

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

Lightbox Cafe Launch Night

2017-10-13T22:21:07+00:00 October 13th, 2017|New Restaurants, News|

The Lightbox Cafe launch tonight and will be offering a range of sandwiches & baps, tea cakes, homemade cakes, scones, afternoon teas and hot food like jacket potatoes, soup, during the day and turning into a bar in the evening on Thursday, Friday & Saturday.

With an experienced pastry chef in

Yankee Candles YeeHa!

2017-10-05T18:23:23+00:00 October 5th, 2017|News, Shopping|

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. And if you're in the mood for looking for Christmas They've got all of their Christmas stock on show already in packs, baskets and boxes. It's all new to me, but you'll find candles, home fragrance plug sockets, car air fresheners, the gold collection and even something for Halloween. Fragrances include food and spice, fruits, fresh, floral as well as festive smells. You can buy the large jars available

Wildwood Meal & Movie Night

2017-09-22T15:04:30+00:00 September 21st, 2017|Great For Kids, Uniqueness|

We decided to try #SomethingDifferent tonight and booked a couple of seats at Wildwood for their #MealAndMovie night. We dined at 7pm which gave us plenty of time to eat before the film started at 8:45pm. You get a nice 3-course meal of shared starters, a good choice of mains (grills, pizza, pasta dishes) and a dessert. The service was extremely good and our meal came promptly. The cinema comes after your meal...However, tonight was a bit unique as there was originally a booking for 21 in the cinema who had cancelled! That meant we actually had our own #PrivateViewing... and got to start the

Middleton’s Steak House First Taster

2017-09-22T15:04:23+00:00 September 4th, 2017|Great Food, New Restaurants|

FIRST TASTER! Welcome to Middletons Steakhouse & Grill Peterborough Soft lighting, grey, red and black classic styling, bare brick, laminate wood and black metal give Middletons a modern edge with a warm close feel. Candles lit on the tables for the evening give a somewhat romantic atmosphere with not-overpowering background music. You can just about see into the kitchen where all the chefs are preparing food. The waiting staff are plentiful and attentive. Manager Gary took us on a tour downstairs where there's more seating for around 65 covers, it's definitely great for parties down there as it's private. And
