18 Sep The Theatre
Spa Theatre: Just been to see `Rip it Up` at the Spa theatre. I cannot tell you how amazing it was – from start to finish a spectacular performance by Jay McGuiness (from the band Wanted), Natalie Lowe from Strictly Come Dancing and Louis Smith – Champion Gymnast plus a fantastic group of dancers and terrific band with a lead singer with a tremendous voice and personality. The host was Leo Green from Radio 2. Music was from the 1950`s and 1960`s. What a night! How they all remember the steps is amazing…..from wing, bop, jitterbug, lindy hop, jive, ballroom and more. Jay did some solo singing as well as dancing the night away, Louis showed us his athletic skills all the way through the routines and Natalie is definitely the Queen of Dance – she will be a big miss to Strictly this year, but is fulfilling her dream to perform live all around the country – watch out for details of performances – well worth seeing.
Exciting times at the theatre at the moment with Sir Alan Ayckbourn’s new play – A Brief History of Women. We have not seen it yet, but by all accounts it is another one not to be missed. Anthony Eden is playing the main character and we have had the pleasure of having his parents staying with us at Tall Storeys. Ian has met him as he popped in with some other guests who were staying last week….we were interested to hear that Anthony was the Milky Bar Kid way back in the day!!! Ian was telling his dad Tony that he used to work for Nestle and that is when the subject of the Milky Bar came up!! We have such interesting guests!
