As far as musicals go Chicago is first and foremost my favourite. I have already seen it twice, once on tour and once in London both of which I loved, but it is the law that every time it comes to a theatre nearby me and my bestie go and see it. This time around the leading lady was Hayley Tramaddon portraying the play away wife Roxie Hart, with John Partridge as the only lawyer who will get you off of a murder charge, and Jessie Wallace who was Mama Morton. I for one didn’t know any of these were broadway…

Last year’s Woking Food & Drink Festival was a triumph, and no I am not just saying that because I met John Whaite!! Spread over three days Woking decided to bring back the festival this year and this weekend saw its return.  Like last year there were a whole host of celebrity and top chefs gracing the Tante Marie Culinary Theatre and giving us a demo dish.

Sadly GBBO winner Nadia Hussain had to drop out at…

Have you ever been to a place and come out thinking holy cow where have you been all my life? Well this is that kind of place! Lickety Split is nestled at the back of Woking Town Centre on Chertsey Street. I stumbled across this little gem some time back, and whenever I am in the area it is definitely my go to.  This is the perfect place for a wholesome breakfast and lunch on the go, and offers you something other than the usual farce of Boots or Supermarket etc. pre-packaged numbers.  What makes this place stand out amongst the rest?
