Queen & Adam Lambert at Nottingham Motorpoint Arena

I’ve been a massive Queen fan since I was 10 or 11. I learned to love them listening to my dad’s Greatest Hits album and a copy of The Works we borrowed from the library. It wasn’t long before I bought their back catalogue for myself, falling in love with classic albums like A Night at the Opera and A Day at the Races.

The new school: Panto panic

A year ago, I was telling everyone that my daughter DEFINITELY wouldn’t do panto this year. We love panto, but she’d be in Year 7 at a new school and she needed time to settle. As the auditions take place in mid-September, auditioning would be a bit of a gamble as it was such early days and we wouldn’t know if her friendships would be strong enough to survive her missing school for panto.
