This summer, Warwick Castle is hosting an array of spectacular shows and events. A visit to the castle is always a full day out, but this year they’ve gone one step further.

The most successful, iconic rock ‘n’ roll musical ever is touring in 2019 and last night, it debuted at Malvern Theatres. As expected, audience participation and dancing was encouraged.

A child free break at Point A Liverpool Street

When I go to London, I tend to either go there and back in the day or stay with my sister who lives nearby. Occasionally though, it’s nice to treat a work trip as a short, child-free break.
