  • Muddy reviews: Santa Claus and the Christmas Adventure

    If an all-out Christmas panto is a bit much for your wee small ones, Santa Claus and the Christmas Adventure is gentler Christmas show, but one that also asks for a panto-like co-operation from its audience.

    It’s a 45 minute show aimed at preschool kids – up to about age five – although the little muddy reviewers who went along were aged eight and six, and they both loved it.

  • Muddy reviews: The Wind and the Willows

    While Lady Muddy Surrey was off having a pre-Crimbo, er, meeting with all the other regional Muddy Stilettos editors on Friday, Mr Muddy Surrey took the mudlets off to see The Wind and the Willows at the Rose Theatre in Kingston.

    I don’t let just anyone loose on the blog, but Mr Muddy is a serious journo, usually writing quite serious stuff for quite serious publications. And given I was in the land of the original Muddy – Bucks and Oxon – which is nowhere near Kingston, and, ok, let’s be honest, just a tiny bit tiddled by the time the show started, I figured it was probably okay to give him a go at Muddy.

    Here’s what he has to say about The Wind and the Willows. Thanks Mr Muddy…

    • Get your skates on

      Pop-up ice rinks are back for the winter, adding a touch of romance to the cold. They’re a great spot for a date (remember Rocky?), a family day out, or a fun slip sliding Christmas party and there are several in Surrey and beyond.

    • Which is your favourite Christmas advert?

      The countdown to Christmas is officially on. Today’s release of the John Lewis advert – and the release of several others last week including the super-stylish Burberry advert – made that certain. Christmas is coming for you – as the House of Fraser advert trills out. The countdown to Christmas is officially on.

      There are hundreds of Christmas adverts out there – some better than others – all designed to get us into the festive spirit. But which is your favourite? You decide…
