Euro Militaire 2016

Last year I spoke about an annual modelling show that my family and I attend in Kent; Euro Militaire. I also mentioned I’d been going more or less every year since I was 6 or 7… but I’ve actually be going since I was 5, as my mum corrected me throughout the weekend. She also reminded me that the first time I came here I was carrying around a Gizmo cuddly toy (from Gremlins). Dad is working hard on a steam punk tank to enter into the show and had hoped to have it ready for next year’s competition (2017), Read More…

Luna Cinema presents Back to the Future

Drive-in or outdoor movie screenings aren’t common in the UK, I wish they were! I have never been to one (well, until now that is). I’ve only heard of one company that offers outdoor movie screenings and that’s Lunar Cinema. Lunar Cinema screen movies across the UK using pop up cinemas, so they’re not solely in one location and this weekend they were showing two movies near us. Grease on Saturday evening and Back to the Future on Sunday evening. Ryan and I are fans of Back to the Future so booked tickets as soon as they were available online Read More…

Race4Men Gloucester for Cancer Research UK 

My partner, Ryan, will be doing a 10k run this Sunday 14th August with Race4Men Gloucester to raise money for Cancer Research UK.  While us ladies have the well-estbalished, long running Race4Life charity runs, Race4Men is relatively new.

London Film and Comic Con 2016

Last Friday Ryan, my parents and I left home at 5am and travelled to London for London Film and Comic Con! Which is one of the biggest conventions in the UK and one of my favourite events as they have a wide range of celebrity guests attending and unique dealers. We got to the venue at around 7am and there was already a queue forming; rumour has it some people had been there since 5am! Once inside the convention we headed to the guest signing area on the first floor to collect our virtual queue (VQ) tickets. It is never Read More…

Crudwell Strawberry Fayre

The Crudwell Strawberry Fayre is an annual event in the small town of Crudwell, in the Cotswolds. We’ve been going as a family for as long as I can remember and this year marks the strawberry fayre’s 29th year. When I was younger my parents had a stall in the craft tent; the show has evolved over the year’s and there are now stalls along the green as opposed to a craft tent or marquee. It’s a community affair with many volunteers serving visitors strawberries and cream, ice cream and hot and cold drinks. There are plenty of activities throughout Read More…
