    11 Hours In Edinburgh

    11 Hours in Edinburgh | Essential Twenty

    Whilst I feel that I am fairly well travelled, in reality that’s a total lie. I’ve spent a lot of time in Spain, a few weeks in America and, besides a few other trips to Europe over my 22 years, that’s it really. In fact, until last week I’d never even ventured north of Cumbria. That’s right, I’d never crossed the border into sister Scotland.

    Treasure Island | Essential Twenty

    Something that Jack and his family have told me about on numerous occasions is Play In The Park, part of the Dukes Walkabout Theatre in Lancaster. Last summer I went to see their production of The Hobbit with Jack and his sister, and on Friday we headed back to Williamson Park to see this year’s summer production: Treasure Island.
