Busy Bee: What I’ve Been Up To

This week, I’ve;

  • been to the McKee Exhibition, The Joy of Sheff, at The Blue Shed. Pete Mckee is a bit of a legend ’round Sheffield and this, was his last exhibition about Sheffield. It was a one-day only event and I dragged Chris there with his hangover. It was definitely worth it though, we spotted the landlord (Tom from Fagans) of one of our favourite pubs in Pete’s short film, and bought a couple of limited edition prints, which may or may not feature in our wedding!
  • saw Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty at the Lyceum. I was a complete ballet n00b so had been anticipating this theatre trip with some trepidation but what can I say, I’m a convert. I was really swept up with the story, the music and the dancing. And in awe of the dancers; what poise and grace; unfortunately something I’ll never emulate!
  • saw The History Boys at The Crucible. Now, I knew that I’d love this. But this production does have a few tricks up its sleeve. I love The Crucible and am quite a regular theatre-goer but I always love seeing how the different directors use the space that the stage offers and this was no exception

So, quite a busy, cultural week and this weekend was spent not doing much, bar a few purchases for the flat and a quick crafty makeover for our living room – watch this space!
