A Wicked night

A couple of years ago my brother told my two girls he was going to take them to the theatre, well you know kids, they don't forget a thing and they make sure they remind him everytime they see him that he hasn't taken them yet!

So 2 weeks ago, out of the blue I get a message from him to say I better be free on the 14th because he has booked tickets for us to see Wicked - Ooh, I do love an unexpected gift!

We had great seats in the stalls, right in the middle opposite the stage which would have been amazing had some tall lady not come and sat in the seat right opposite me, blocking my view of the stage for the whole performance!

Well I'm not one to let things bother me, I just had to keep manouvering my head to see the actors doing their thing and hope that I wasn't in turn blocking the view of the person behind me - They really need to sort out the seating in theatres!!

I didn't know what to expect from the show I just knew it was about a witch and had something to do with The Wizard of Oz. I wasn't far off, it was about a girl who was born green who turns into a witch and... Well I don't want to spoil it for you in case you would like to see it yourself!

There were a few funny bits and the singing was amazing, like being at the X factor finals live, only better! A great show for all the family so I would recommend, only ask if you can have a seat behind a short person when booking your tickets!

This is my view of the stage before the tall lady came and ruined it for me!
I would have loved to take some photos of the actual show but sadly you are not allowed and I wasnt brave enough to risk it.

Our London Link Party


  1. I haven't seen Wicked yet but it attracts such raving fans I'm keen to catch it one day. Love musicals and really enjoy West End shows with the kids. But yeah, hate that when some giant comes and blocks your view! #ourlondon

    1. It was a great show, my friend loves it so much she has seen it 7 times just this year!

  2. Sounds fab ... always tempted when going through Victoria Station and daughter is a big a wiz of oz fan so would definitely be on for a trip. Thanks so much for sharing at #OurLondon - would love to see you again this week, Alice @ Outdoors in London
