My aim for this blog is to share our family friendly experiences as much as possible in Berkshire. However, on occasions we do go further afield and I aim to write up blog posts about holidays or weekend destinations around the UK that we visit. I have come to the conclusion that we are visiting them so I might as well share our experiences in case you happen to find yourself heading there. In the Autumn we headed to the Lake District and I put a blog post together about our wonderful time in the national park.
We decided to go away for Easter this year and as part of our trip visited Cardiff Bay (blog to follow shortly). The bay is a great part of the Welsh capital and only 2 hours – 2 1/2 hours from Berkshire in good traffic. Whilst in Cardiff Bay we went to see Justin’s Band with Justin Fletcher (aka Mr Tumble) leading the show, which we booked tickets for back in December 2017. Justin’s Band has been touring the UK during the Easter holidays. Although this post isn’t relevant to Berkshire itself, I thought I would write a blog in case the Justin’s Band goes on tour again in the future.
The show was fantastic, really upbeat and interactive and a great way to introduce children to the theatre. Justin’s Band took the audience on a musical adventure and introduced the audience to a wide range of musical instruments including the piano, drums and flute to name a few. The show explained how the instruments worked, explained musical notes and formed a band throughout the performance. There was plenty of singing and dancing with lots of nursery rhymes and well known songs being sung mixed with some less well known songs. The staging and choreography was bright, upbeat and engaging, perfect for the younger audience. I am really glad we decided to go and see Justin’s Band as my little one really enjoyed the show and has often talked about it since.
*I was not paid to write this post and I paid full price for our tickets, views are my own. I decided to write about the experience as we had a great time at Justin’s Band. Thanks to Justin for allowing us to take photos. Click here to view the Berkshire Mummies disclaimer.*
