AD – Gifted Tickets // Review – Maidenhead Mini-Golf

We were delighted to be invited to Maidenhead Mini-Golf to have a go on their brand new 18 hole, dinosaur themed, mini-golf course and were thrilled it was dry and sunny after a very wet week! It was a perfect way to enjoy a Friday Half Term afternoon. We received a very warm welcome, were given size appropriate golf clubs and picked a different coloured ball each, had a quick safety briefing and headed out onto the course. The mini-golf course was busy which was great to see, but the rounds flowed nicely with us only having to wait for the family on the hole in front of us to finish their go. The mini-golf was well thought out with different challenges and obstacles at each hole, on one you had to cross water and there were a couple that involved tunnels and bridges to get the ...

AD – Gifted Tickets // Review – Concertini & The Brass Funkeys

Berkshire Mummies were invited by Conertini, to attend one of their concerts and we picked to go to their New Year show with The Brass Funkeys and I have to say it was a really positive and upbeat way to start a Sunday morning at the beginning of January, so thanks for having us Conertini. I took my eldest with me and we will definitely be booking tickets to another one of your concerts in the not too distant future. The Brass Funkeys were an 8 piece brass band, they were fantastic with the audience, educating us about their different instruments, the sounds they made and the different families of instruments they came from. The Brass Funkeys ‘took us to’ New Orleans where we experienced a Mardi Gras. During the concert their was singing, clicking, toe tapping and dancing and it was su

Chinese New Year, Maidenhead Celebrate – The Year of The Rat

A couple of years ago we experienced the Chinese New Year celebrations in Maidenhead which marked the Year of the Dog. The sun shone as the Chinese Dragons danced their way down the high street after starting the procession with firecrackers, drums and dancing. There was a great atmosphere in the town as the Chinese Dragons, a symbol of China, which are believed to bring good luck to people, made their way along the procession route - it was fantastic to watch. This year, 2020, marks The Year of the Rat and Maidenhead celebrate again on Saturday 25th January 2020, 1pm - 2pm. The Eagle Claw Kung Fu School UK will again perform their traditional dragon and lion dance. The dragon dance will make its way down Maidenhead High Street from The Boy and the Boat statue at the top of the High St...

Boulter’s Lock and Ray Mill Island, Maidenhead

Back in the Autumn we had a family explore around Boulter's Lock and Ray Mill Island. It is a lovely place to explore with room to run, plenty to see and a nice park to play in. There was a public car park just up the road from Boulter's Lock, you have to pay for it but it isn't too expensive. Boulter's Lock is a fantastic place to watch boats going in and out of the lock and I always find it fascinating to see the water coming in and out of the lock itself. Once you have had enough of boat spotting you can head over the bridge onto Ray Mill Island. Ray Mill Island is a great opportunity to see swans, geese, ducks and squirrels aplenty and in addition there is a bird aviary and guinea pig enclosure for you to look at. There is a little play park and around the island are wooden ani...
