Greek Mythology – The Trojan Wars

Greek Mythology – The Trojan Wars

It is often said that the Greeks pretty much invented everything. Whether they actually invented storytelling or not I don’t know. But one thing you cannot deny is the fact they really knew how to tell a tale. They threw everything into it. Love, loss, battles, heroes, heroines, monsters, gods and adventures galore. One of my favourite films as a kid was Jason & the Argonauts (an ancient Greek tale). The skeleton battle was ground-breaking for its time, though it looks positively cartoon-like next to today’s CGI techniques. It’s still a great film, fundamentally because it’s a great story.  https://youtu.be/C-ZQGRM7GW0…

Autumn Family Fun at Playdale

Autumn Family Fun at Playdale

The Yorkshire Coast has an abundance of experiences for young children and one of our favourite places to visit is Playdale Farm. Unlike a lot of attractions, you really can spend an entire day here and with activities both indoors and out, it's not weather dependant either (always a relief). Playdale Farm - Animals Following a visit with our toddler this week it was great to see they are continually investing and have revamped and reopened their indoor play barn and incorporated a new section inside with ride-on tractors suitable for various ages, perfect timing now the weather is drawing…

Scarborough…the influencer of multiple generations

Scarborough…the influencer of multiple generations

When I first heard about the Big Ideas by The Sea Festival, it felt BIG and unconventional. A festival of inspirational writers, artists and speakers talking about the town and how it inspired them would not have felt out of place in a big city. Still, for a seaside resort, it made me start to question how much did I really know about Scarborough? You don't need to be in the town for long before stumbling past the Stephen Joseph Theatre and, after some quick searching, find out about fantastic writers like Alan Ayckbourn, but when looking at the event…

After a difficult year, we wrote an extraordinary letter to the North Pole this year and asked if there was a teeny tiny chance that Santa might be able to spare a sprinkling of snow and glitter... but boy, has he delivered!
