Get Ready For A Magical Journey With Passport To Adventure With Disney On Ice

A few weeks ago I spent a wonderful afternoon taking part in the ‘Fit To Dance’ workshop with Ashley Banjo and some of the super talented stars from Disney On Ice.

Their passion and love for all they do really shone through and the buzz of the upcoming show filled the room and you can get your chance to experience this for yourself if you are thinking of going along to the show yourself in their pre show ‘Fit To Dance’ with Zootropolis.

All of your favourite Disney characters from Minnie and Mickey to Timon and Pumba will be making their way to London from 20th to 30th December to take you on a journey through a plethora of memorable Disney destinations with the all new singing and dancing show – Passport To Adventure.

The journey will take you through the African Pride Lands with Simba, Timon and Pumba, take a trip deep under the sea to the mystical home of Ariel and then wicked off into the sky by Tinkerbell to discover Neverland. As if this wasn’t enough you will then be transported to a winter wonderland where you will of course find the all time favourites Elsa, Anna and the lovable snowman Olaf and discover that true love is the most magical power of all.

This show would make the perfect Christmas treat with its combination of familiar Disney hits, world class skating and of course the magic of Disney that can never be topped.

There are still tickets available ‘here’ so don’t miss out on your chance to witness this unforgettable experience!

WWE Smackdown Live At The O2

I have to admit I wasn’t filled with excitement when an email popped up in my inbox asking me along to the O2 to watch WWE Smackdown Live.

However after seeing the face of my usually unexcitable teenage boy light up at the thought of it I knew that is was going to be an event that he was going to very much enjoy.

In fact it wasn’t only Archie that was full of excitement, my husband and my five year old Frankie are also massive fans which would make it a trip for all ages.

We arrived at the O2 and set off for some pre drinks where we got the chance to see some of the infamous belts and get up close to Dolph Ziegler and Becky Lynch. Sadly we didn’t manage to get a photo but it was still great to meet them in person.

We made our way to our seats kitted out in all the fantastic merchandise and I was astounded by the atmosphere that was filling the packed out arena.


People of all ages were sining, chanting and cheering as the spectacular ring entrances that were taking place and were completely immersed in the thrill of the fight scenes. Many of which were dressed as their favourite characters such as The Undertaker and Randy Orton.

Even I got drawn into the atmosphere and thoroughly enjoyed the three hour long performance that for me was a cross between a rock concert and a boxing match.

The boys sat there glued to the stage, joining in with the chants and getting super excited with each throw and slam dunk they saw.

This show really was an eye opener for me and it goes to show that you sometimes the things you think you will have little interest in can actually be a really enjoyable experience.

We all came out buzzing from a fantastic event and I would highly recommend taking a trip next time they are in a town near you.

 

A Superhero Wannabes Dream:Marvel Universe Live

Two superhero clad, hugely hyperactive boys, a ten year old girl with no interest in superheroes and a moody teen with no interest in anything apart from his XBox was quite a combination to take to watch Marvel Universe Live at the O2 the other day.

My youngest two live and breath anything superhero related and have high hopes of becoming ‘the real’ Hulk and Iron Man when they grow up; so I knew the prospect of seeing their favourite characters come to life on stage was going to be the perfect treat for them but I knew the other two were going to be a little harder to please.

We arrived to a sea of mini super Heros eagar for the action to start and when it did it really went with a bang!

From the minute the lights hit the stage huge projections filled the back screens and explosions began to excite the crowd.

One by one the familiar characters of Spider-Man, Iron Man and Capitan America and some not so to me such as Loki and Red Skull took to the stage leaving a packed crowd of tiny faces and some bigger fans in complete awe.


The story of the battle over the cosmic cube which holds super power in the Marvel Universe has been shattered into pieces by the powerful Thor to prevent it from being found and used by any evil villains.

In a bid to gain back the precious pieces the powerful Marvel heroes club together facing a whole host of problems on their way.


It was hard to know where to look at points with perfectly executed fight scenes taking place alongside death defying motorcycle stunts, pyrotechnic displays and superheroes scaling walls and flying through the air there was never a dull moment.


It was action packed from beginning to end and all four of mine sat in silence through the entire show just waiting for the next bit of action.

My youngest two who have horrendously short attention spans didn’t move a muscle, number three said it was the most exciting show she had ever seen and my massively critical teen said it was fabulous and couldn’t believe how real it came across.


Marvel Universe set our imaginations on fire and sparked off that love of superheroes in is all.

*we were invited along to watch this show for the purpose of this review and they are all my own, honest opinions.
