Yesterday my family and I went to see a pantomime production in the city. It was held in the Olympia Theatre which is my favorite venue for concerts and theatre performances. Its quite an old building and the decor inside is so beautiful. I have photographed quite a few bands there so it has a special place in my heart! Our seats were in the centre of row 10 so we had a perfect view of everything. I was a little sneaky and took my DSLR camera to snap a few photographs to show you guys. They say no cameras allowed but plenty of camera flashes were going off throughout the day!
The show was a modern take on a classic story and stars Jedward who many people in the UK will know from The X Factor last year. Overall I think it was a great show, although it made my heart sad when the lady who played the fairy godmother was rough and dragged her little helper (a Chihuahua dog) across the stage when he refused to move.
We were lucky enough to have 6 wristbands to meet Jedward after the show. We only needed 3 of them so we gave the others to a special needs girl and her parents who were very grateful. It was so lovely to see her eyes light up when she met them!
My first impressions of Jedward were a] they're incredibly pale, b] they're very thin and c] they aren't as annoying as they appear on stage and tv. Infact I will admit that I have a little crush on John now. We chatted about blink182 for a minute and when I was on my way out the door he called me back to talk about Canon cameras. Canon and blink 182 - my two favorites, of course he woo'ed me! I didn't talk to Edward very much but he seemed nice too. They spent quite a long time talking to me, security kept reminding us that they were under a strict schedule, whoops. He said something as I was leaving but I didn't catch it, oh well.
John and I, I think my face looks a little odd in this picture (whats going on with my nose!) I didn't have enough time to snap pictures for an OOTD post before we left yesterday morning but my top and skirt are from River Island, Topshop cardigan and my purse is Betsey Johnson.
I hope you all are having a great 2011 so far!
