Review: Disney on Ice, Liverpool

Our kids love Disney, and special days out with us as a family, so it was perfect that we were able to review Disney on Ice over the Easter half term at Liverpool Echo Arena. Disney On Ice Presents World of Enchantment  promised to be a fun-filled sing-along for all of the family to enjoy, and we were very excited to be going!

We were not disappointed with the show. Full of family favourites such as Woody and Buzz from Toy Story, Elsa and Anna from Frozen and Ariel and Ursula from The Little Mermaid, this show was a spectacular on-ice sing and dance-along with never a dull moment! The kids were absolutely made up with the whole thing.

The costumes, singing and dancing (not to mention some of the amazing moves on the ice) were absolutely a joy to watch. The kids were dancing and singing in their seats, as each of their well-known favourite characters appeared on the ice, swishing and jumping with boundless energy and enthusiasm.

We loved this show. The kids had such a good time. We would definitely recommend this show for something to do over Easter as a family - it is a real treat.

Tickets start from around £20 and can be purchased online here.  I hope if you go you have as much fun as we did!

Review: Cinderella at St Helens Theatre Royal

We love panto season. The kids get so excited about watching the show, and we always look forward to seeing them. One of our favourite theatres - St Helens Theatre Royal is currently showing Cinderella. With some amazing twists on the classic tale, this show was a rip-roaring adventure full of laughs and surprises along the way.

The cast were brilliant as always at St Helens Theatre Royal - we were treated to two 'dames' as the ugly sisters, who were hilarious and wore some pretty amazing outfits! This year the guest star is Lee Latchford from Steps. There were plenty of Stes references chucked in for good measure - myself and my husband were laughing but I suppose the kids would be too young to understand all that - maybe I need to play them some classic Steps!

The panto is funny, exciting and at times really romantic. During a scene with the Prince and Cinderella, Rosie turned to me and said "Mummy I have got some happy tears, have you?" The finale was fabulous, with a full-on Steps medley to sing and dance along too.

I would definitely recommend taking a trip to St Helens Theatre Royal this Easter with the family. It is such a fun two hours to spend - we absolutely loved it.

The panto runs until 15th April. A family ticket is £56 for two adults and two children which I think is great value.  You can book your tickets here.
