Trying something new…

2018-04-19T21:08:00+00:00 April 19th, 2018|General, Great Food|

Tonight we were lucky enough to be invited to try out the Middleton's Steakhouse & Grill's new Spring menu... what a treat! They’ve added some wonderful new things on their menu to suit all tastes including a larger range of vegetarian dishes. Philip served us at a table outside so we could enjoy the warm spring air as it had been such a sunny day. We started with the Chicken Liver Pâté £5.45 (smooth pâté, onion chutney and warm sourdough) a large portion of pâté that contrasted well against the chutney and the smoothness of the pâté worked well with

Friday 13th Lucky for Us!

2018-04-13T19:17:07+00:00 April 13th, 2018|General, Great Food|

So it may be Friday 13th and unlucky for some, but it definitely wasn't for us as we were 'lucky' enough to be asked to come and try the Dragonfly Hotel's new menu. Now, some of you may not know it, or may actually pass it by and not give it another thought.... but maybe next time you should get yourself down there as it has a lovely location right next to the Rowing Lake (off Thorpe Road) with some great views from their bar area and restaurant. When the weather is good, the doors are open and you

Those ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’

2018-03-21T18:44:16+00:00 March 21st, 2018|Uncategorised|

There’s a bit of musical comedy going on tonight at the The Key Theatre as Dirty Rotten Scoundrels makes its debut. After going to chat with the Peterborough Operatic and Dramatic Society (PODS) performers back in January at their rehearsals, this show has been much anticipated. And it showed in the full audience tonight. It’s a storyline that some of you will know from the 2988 film starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine or, if you’re old enough, maybe back as far as the 1964 film with Marlon Brando and David Niven. There’s a lot of goings on in this stage production including

After a quiet week staying in to keep warm and out of the -8 wind it was time to venture out engulfed in moon boots, scarves and gloves. We were off for a bit of excitement, namely into the Great Wine Cellar..... We were invited to a banquet being held by 'Thomas Cooke'. No, he's no relation to Thomas Cook, as in holidays, before you start criticising the spelling (as we first thought we might add!), but the local Peterborough magistrate who's Georgian house is down Priestgate... from the 1800s of course! Location: Peterborough Museum. Okay, so I know I

Out & About – Sunday Travels

2018-02-13T21:13:56+00:00 February 13th, 2018|Days Out, Fun-for-all, Great For Kids, Summer|

It's another Sunday with not a lot to do and for some, it's usually a walk around the town centre with the same-old, same-old. It's time for a change. So, We Love Peterborough decided to take a drive out and see where we could go that wasn't very far but something new to do. We piled into the car and decided to take a drive towards the Deepings umming and ahhing as to whether the Deepings were classed as being in the Peterborough region.... we decided that it was a 'yes', even if some parts of it are in Lincolnshire, but

What an Afternoon Treat!

Wow, what more can I say, than, "That was absolutely delicious!" I've just come back from an afternoon tea treat with my 'DIGESTIVELY-CHALLENGED' family members and it was a complete success. The Great Northern Hotel create afternoon teas like most other hotels do, but before you sign off with no interest, theirs have a BIG difference... GLUTEN-FREE / COELIACS / DIABETICS / MEN please read on... ! Your table awaits in the 1852 Restaurant for something you've probably dreamed of and more. So, let's start the ball rolling on this glorious afternoon delight... If you're a MAN you may

Some ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ are coming…

2018-02-01T11:08:18+00:00 February 1st, 2018|Fun-for-all, General, Must Do-Visit-See|

We attended a practice session tonight for the musical of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels... being played by the Peterborough Operatic and Dramatic Society this March at The Key Theatre. The group has been going since the early 1900s believe it or not and there’s a complete mix of people within their group working full time in the day as they then also give up their spare time to their passion or love of acting, dancing and singing whether they are ex-professional from London’s West End or amateur. We some with some of the cast?to get a feel of what it’s

A Piece of Art…

2018-01-27T14:05:36+00:00 January 27th, 2018|General, News, Shopping, Uniqueness|

So after spotting a post on Facebook this morning I sauntered down to Queensgate (at the entrance to McDonalds) to take a look at the #FAFPTB Free Art Friday Peterborough Galler Pop-Up. I was greeted by the lovely Kaine, who paused for a few moments from writing numbers on stickers, who told me all about what was going on.... Free Art Friday is a concept where #Artists get together and give some of their artwork away for free. Yes I said FREE. It basically helps to get unknown artists - known. In this small gallery you will find numerous

It’s Panto Time

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

Madame Curio’s Cirque Delirium

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
