CIRQUE DU SOLEIL’S LUZIA


We were delighted to attend the dress rehearsal of Cirque Du Soleil’s LUZIA: a waking dream of Mexico at the iconic Royal Albert Hall.


LUZIA invites audiences to escape to an imaginary Mexico into an imaginary spectacular world CIRQUE DU SOLEIL’S LUZIA. The visually stunning show is a breathtaking production of circus acts which left us in awe as we watched the stunning artistry unfold.


The show was so creative and innovative and was unlike anything I'd seen before, from the moving stage to rain and water incorporated into the stunning performance.


There were high jaw-dropping death-defying acts, as well as modern highly funny comedy moments which involved audience participation.


The entire show and story was phenomenal, each act sharing a part in the unique unfolding story.
I cannot recommend Cirque Du Soliel LUZIA enough, you will not be disappointed.

NoFit State has announced the full list of perilous and playful circus acts in their latest production LEXICON opening at the Roundhouse on Friday 3 January 2020 for a strictly limited season. With an international cast from Brecon to Bologna, Finland to France and everywhere in between, the acts perform, live and travel together in the traditional circus lifestyle.


LEXICON will present a host of heart-stopping acts including aerial acrobats such as Lyndall Merry defying gravity on the Swinging Trapeze, Vilhelmiina Sinervo and Rosa-Marie Schmid’s majestic artistry on the slack and double ropes and Pablo Meneu reaching new heights on the aerial straps.
NoFit State’s new production also brings nail-biting balancing acts including local Camden boy Luke Hallgarten who will be returning to his hometown to play at the Roundhouse for the first time with his dizzying Cyr Wheel performance. 


He is joined by Luca Morrocchi’s pin dropping Chinese Pole routine and Davide Salodini’s conquering turn on the Walking Globe. Rosa-Maria Autio and Nicol√≥ Marzoli will dazzle as an acro base duo featuring foot juggling and Sam Goodburn will amaze audiences by combining his juggling skills with a unicycle.

The fast-paced innovative circus filled with live music and movement will break the boundaries between the real and the imaginary, the possible and the impossible, become blurred where nothing is hidden and everything revealed.

London SEA LIFE


I have been privileged to visit London SEA LIFE many years ago, so we were looking forward to getting the opportunity to visit again and see the new creature zones. There are many creature zones to explore here are just some of our favourite.

 

Shark Walk: As you enter you get to walk over a glass floor where you get to see the sharks swim beneath your feet. but that's not the end of the Shark experience as you travel through the London aquarium you'll also come to across Shark Reef Encounter: Here you can get up close and personal with the stunning sharks and watch them swim.


Rockpool: A great opportunity to hold creatures from the deep. I loved exploring the Rockpool which gives you a chance to hold starfish or shark eggs. I was fascinated at the size and shape of the Shark Egg.

Ocean Tunnel: I love the ocean tunnel its amazing to experience life underneath the ocean, as you watch the see fish swim over your head, such a surreal beautiful experience.


Coral Kingdom: My favourite zone by far, the colours are amazing, it was delightful to be surrounded by the largest living Coral reef in the middle of London, the clownfish were stunning. Such a beautiful zone.

Ocean Invaders: Ocean Invaders allows you to enter into the world of the UK's largest jellyfish experience. It's amazing to watch these delicate creatures swim in harmony and with a variety of species to see and learn about, the experience is memorable.



Penguin Present Pursuit: This Christmas, young explorers can help Ziggy the penguin prepare for Christmas, help him find all the presents he has dropped around SEA LIFE London. All festivities are included in your entry ticket.


These are just some of the zones you will get to explore, there's also the Seahorse KingdomRainforest Adventure and Penguin Point. We had the most amazing day at SEA LIFE London, defiantly an experience that I will treasure for a long time to come. The perfect family day out. For more information and how to book check out www.visitsealife.com/london.

Spies In Disguise


We were so excited to head to the Southbank In London to watch the much anticipated animated movie Spies In Disguise.

Movie Synopsis 
Spies In Disguise follows a young scientist Walter Beckett (Tom Holland) who dreams of transforming the world with his glitter friendly gadgets. Walter takes the opportunity to showcase his skills when he provides some of these super gadgets to Super Spy Lance Sterling (Will Smith), But when Lance Sterling is on a mission he is less than impressed when his trusted gadget explodes with a sprinkle of glitter.


But things take an unexpected turn and Super spy Lance Sterling soon finds that he needs Walter to help him on a mission to clear his name and save the world. Walter has the perfect disguise to help Lance disappear which will help Lance clear his name once and for all, but before lance could fully comprehend the disguise he turns into a Pigeon.


Our Thoughts On the Movie
The movie was outstanding, it had hilariously funny moments throughout the movie. It was great to see two unlikely characters joining forces to work as a team. Spies In Disguise is a must-see movie that everyone will love. If you like spy movies and humour then this animation is defiantly for you. One for kids and adults alike. We give this movie a 10/10, its one you will want to own and watch over and over.

Favourite Movie Scene
This was a hard one as there were so many great ones to choose from, but it had to be when Lance Sterling is turned into a pigeon and say's "Look at you!! "I can see my butt and your face at the same time, and what happens in the submarine stays in the submarine. Watch the trailer for a sneak peek.

Spies In Disguise is out across Uk Cinemas On Boxing Day, so make sure you take the family to watch this awesome movie you'll love it.
