National Experience Week is here!

Between 17th and 26th April, it is National Experience Week, and if you could choose anything, what would it be ?

With such a large family, getting out and gaining new experiences that cater for everyone is pretty impossible, these days we tend to split off into smaller groups, of differing interests or ages (not sure how I ended up with the Peppa Pig trip to the cinema!)

The amazing people at Into the Blue are setting you a challenge! Create a wishlist of the experiences you would like to do, then tweet them or send it to them on facebook, you can read all of the details and give yourselves some ideas here.

One lucky person will win their wishlist (up to the value of £1000) and two runners up will win a £100 voucher to use on the site, so what are you waiting for, head over to the site and get compiling your perfect wishlist.

I asked our children what they would like and Viggo and Tyrus would like to go trampolining, Eowyn would like to learn about Pony Keeping (i’m sure daddy wouldn’t, in case she announces she would like a pony for her birthday!) Kaide loves anything Sporty or maybe a Spy Day. Neva would obviously go with the Zoo Keeper for a Day, Lochlan would probably go for Tank Driving and Xene would go for something a little less energetic like an Afternoon Tea or Chocolate Making, but the great thing with this competition is that you could choose ALL of these.

What will you choose ?

Saluting 30 years of Michael Jackson’s multi-million-selling album Bad. . . the Forever Jackson stage show comes to Marina Theatre, Lowestoft on 10th March 2017.

Bad sold 500,000 copies within just five days of its UK release. It was No1 in 25 countries, shifting an incredible 45 million copies. Five of its songs topped the UK charts and the supporting tour grossed £100m.

Forever Jackson captures the moment with superb musicianship, electrifying choreography, stunning audio visual projections and jaw-dropping special effects. More than that, ittakes you from The Jackson 5, through The Jacksons and on to MJ’s rise to become The King of Pop.
