Blithe Spirit starring Jennifer Saunders at Malvern Theatres: Review

Iconic comedy actress Jennifer Saunders is at Malvern Theatres this week, starring in Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit. The play is in Malvern as part of a national tour, prior to opening in the West End. As expected, the theatre was absolutely packed for opening night. In fact, it’s very close to being completely sold out all week. Blithe Spirit: The performance Laughter reverberated around the theatre as the unfortunate Edith made her unsteady way onto the stage carrying a tray of drinks.

One of the most difficult things about travelling as a family with a dog is finding places to eat. Often, dog friendly restaurants are cheap and cheerful. Or the more upmarket ones don’t cater for children. It was a bit of a relief to discover The Boxing Hare at Swerford, near Chipping Norton when we visited the Cotswolds on a short break. Fabulous food in a welcoming, family friendly atmosphere. They have a lovely dog friendly area too. About The Boxing Hare It’s always refreshing to arrive somewhere I’m due to review and be greeted by someone who can’t wait…
