Christmas Day at The Ritz, London

A few months ago I was online trying to book our annual festive afternoon tea at The Ritz.

Today we drove to one of the most beautiful restaurants in London, The Ivy Chelsea Gardens.

The Snowman, Sadlers Wells Press Visit

We were invited down to Sadlers Wells in Holborn to watch Raymond Brigg’s The Snowman, and having seen it many years ago, we were very excited.
