Saturday 19th November 2016 marked the first night of previews for the first ever West End production of Dreamgirls. This musical follows the journey of an all female African-American singing group and their attempt to find fame in the US Music Industry during the 60s and 70s.

Winter will be a true test of how committed I am to exercising. Although we’re still in Autumn, I’ve already thought once or twice about whether leaving the comfort of the warm indoors to brave the cold for a jog or even to go to the gym is a good idea. Now more than ever, remaining disciplined is going to be important. But I have … Continue reading Time to Brace Myself. Winter is Coming.

In actual fact, the illness was more of an inevitability: getting little sleep, not eating well and squeezing in five workouts on Monday was … Continue reading Fitness Report – Week Five

My only change in reflections since writing … Continue reading Review: In The Heights, Kings Cross Theatre
