Old Town - Day 3 of #BloggingAdventure

Monday 4th August 2014

We headed out early today to go to Bridlington's Old Town, If you remember programs such as the The Royal or Heartbeat, well a couple episodes were filmed in the this town (and around North Yorkshire).  

Bridlington's Old Priory 
We walked up to visit Bridlington's Old Priory and since we looked like tourists (We're not really that tourist~y because we know Bridlington from the back of our palm.) We were asked how old it was, I  said 201 years old when I knew it was 901years old. The night before there was a lot of shouting from outside so I was really tired. We also asked about Henry VIII, but my shy self decided to say nothing (great idea, Lucy. You know how much you love history!) 

We did go inside, I was asked if I wanted a 'Photographers Pass', I looked around, although there was natural lighting, my camera found it hard to focus on subjects and props in the church, so I said "No thanks, my camera's acting up.".

I went outside, sketched the front of The Priory (I'll try and upload it asap) and waited patiently for my family. We then made our way to the old town, I love it down there, it's so quiet. We visited a few retro shops and  one charity shop. I don't think the shop assistant liked me one bit though...

We made our way into 'Modern' Bridlington to do some shopping and get some lunch. We also visited an old Bridlington Amusement. You got to use 'Old pennies', I have an old penny from 1913 and one shilling from 1899. Which I found on the street some years ago.

My sister
Later in the even myself, my sister and mum went down to the beach. We came across loads of lobsters, all taken apart and rotting away. As we walked along the beach, we decided to play our childhood game 'Runaway Tide'. Rules are don't let the water get your feet.  Sounds simple enough. As we got further along the beach I found a claw. I decided to name him Colin (don't ask, I think the sun got to me at this point!)

Also 'HUGE' hint, put the claw on the beach safely, don't throw it in the sea like an idiot because it will take small chunks of your skin with it. Blugh.... My hand is fine by-the-way!

We walked back  to the apartment, watched the sun go down and discussed what to-do over the week.

I headed to bed and listened to the waves of the sea.

Bring Me Sunshine | Life as a Musical Theatre Student | #1

Studying and training in Musical Theatre is an absolute dream at the moment, I may be a bit left footed when it comes to Jazz, but even when something doesn't go right we give it the jazz hands.

The students are lovely and so talented, it feels weird to be the eldest and occasionally having to (literally) catch up! During my Fine Art studies I was sort of the 'middle aged' student, but the eldest was 47 years old.

To catch up, what's been happening this past month?
I had the opportunity to participate in Lucy Suggate's 'Swarm Sculptures' at Nottingham Contemporary and rehearse in the amazing new Dance4 studio in September.

I also had the fantastic opportunity to go to my first premiere of 'Hood' in Nottingham for a pilot episode for the TV series starring, local singer/songwriter Josh Kemp and a fellow friends and actors, Adam Guest and Mik Horvath.
It was so wonderful getting to finally catch up with them and would like to personally thank them …

Life as a Musical Theatre Student Special | Anita And Me

In absolute excitement, I have been so happy and very fortunate to be back performing as Ensemble with Touring Consortium Theatre Company again in 'Anita And Me' at Theatre Royal Nottingham 14th to 18th March 2017.

THURSDAY | 9th March 2017

It's the first rehearsal, I am always nervous before meeting people but the fact I already know four of the ensemble members makes it just that little bit better,  Michelle Smith, Estelle Smith, Alice Gee and Marcus Whybrow who were also in A Tale of Two Cities back in November 2016.

I have to be honest, it felt a bit weird to be going to the same rehearsal venue where I'm involved with two stage productions which ironically are being toured around the UK and each of the show's are exactly ten days apart - I'm currently involved with this production (Anita And Me) and The Grapes of Wrath.

We have commenced rehearsals on the beginning scenes where myself, Alice and Marcus have to run on stage cause chaos in Tollington with t…

Life as a Musical Theatre Student Special | A Tale Of Two Cities |

You may have noticed in previous weeks, the very delay in posting covers, vlog's and also posting updates! The past two weeks in November have been immersive and utterly incredible.

💖 THURSDAY & FRIDAY ( 17th & 18th )
The rehearsal day had arrived, since finding out my audition was successful in the summer, I had been eagerly counting the days down.

On Thursday (17th) the ensemble also know as the Two Cities Twelves, introduced each other  - luckily I already knew some of the cast ( Mike Newbold, Marcus Whybrow, Michelle Smith and Alice Gee) from previous productions and also as friends but I was certainly thrilled to meet and perform with more like mind and lovely local actors and actresses.
We commenced rehearsing on some of the scenes including 'The Hanging' - which reminded me strangely of my FMP (Fine Art - Final Major Project) earlier this Summer after creating my two five foot puppets.

On Friday we commenced rehearsing the next scenes including my pe…
