I’m not a huge fan of Christmas. I’m really not. I’ve tried, and there are lots of elements I like – namely the pigs in blankets and goodwill to all men – but the saccharine, schmaltzy side isn’t for me. What I really like is the cosiness of it all – the smell of real pine […]

It’s amazing how you can live in London for absolutely bloody ages and think you know about every cool thing going, and then, out of nowhere, you find out there’s an ice climbing wall hiding in Covent Garden, or a flying trapeze school in Hyde Park. Or a glassblowing studio in London Bridge.
There’s nothing nicer that taking a Friday afternoon off work. Especially when you’re going ice climbing, getting your beard did and beating the queues at one of Soho’s hottest new restaurants.
Several years ago, James 1 asked me if I wanted to go and see a play he’d got last minute tickets to at the Red Lion Theatre in Angel. They were free, so off I went.
I made excuses to avoid last year’s Halloween-themed wide game from Fire Hazard Games, Shadow Over Shoreditch, on the grounds that I am a raging pussy at the best of times, and being chased by monsters in the dark holds as much terror for me now, aged 27, as it did 20 years ago.

Everyone loves going to the movies, but these days a trip to the local Odeon is a pretty mundane affair. (And bloody expensive, too. Seven quid for bag of Minstrels? You’re ‘aving a larf!) Fortunately, Backyard Cinema is here to save the magic of cinema from disappearing forever.

You may have read my post on City Dash, a large-scale urban wide game that tickled my housemates and I so much we did it four times in as many months. It involves running around bits of the city solving cryptic clues and evading guards in high-vis, sort of like a slightly more grown-up version of 40-40 Homes. […]
