With just two actors performing a multitude of parts, accents and sexes, there is a lot to take in. The show profits from the well-known facts as we know them and twists them to comic […]

Birmingham Nature Lovers: Woodgate Valley Country Park

As a first impression, when you pull into the car park, and see the visitors centre, Woodgate Valley is pleasant enough, yet lacking in any particular wow factor.  However, as you start to move away from the main children’s play area, the scene begins to open up and becomes quite spectacular. Behind the visitors centre, […]

Birmingham Nature Lovers: Lickey Hills Country Park

Before this recent visit, I had only one memory of Lickey Hills; as a child, one winter, I remember going there with my parents, and rolling in the snow with my dog, Megan.  The memory is faded now, so I really didn’t know what to expect – other than hills, obviously!  We went to the […]
