Longleat Safari Park review: a family day out

Longleat Safari park is in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside. A spectacular Elizabethan mansion and 900 acres of Capability Brown landscape would be worth a visit on their own. Now, throw in drive-through animal enclosures. Add a maze, boat ride and numerous other attractions and you’ve got a rather brilliant recipe for a family day out. We headed over to the park last week to see what it’s like. About Longleat Longleat Safari Park opened to the public in 1966 as a drive-through lion reserve.

Pure Pet Food review

Dogs are funny creatures aren’t they? Bubbles is a fussy eater. That is to say that she’s fussy about dog food.

The Rocky Horror Show at Malvern Theatres: Review

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. The usual Rocky Horror show ingredients were all present and correct. Sci-fi, horror, comedy and music. All the classic songs brought the show to life, with a large dose of innuendo and humour thrown in. Of course, there were some wacky costumes on show too. The show Richard O’Brien’s legendary show first took to the stage back in 1973. An immediate hit, it has since been seen by millions in theatres…
