Me, You and Tea for Two
I love a bit of show swag. Merchandise,
show ephemera, whatever you call it – I LOVE it! I have vacuum packed bags of

Half A Sixpence - Strike Up The Band!
For the twelve of you following my blog with any regularity,
you’ll know that last week we left off mid-way through tech-week of Half A Sixpence at, for me, the most

Half A Sixpence - Fashions and Frippery
‘Can you go any tighter, Emma?’ It’s not the typical question for ten a.m. on a Wednesday

Half A Sixpence - Kicking Things Off!
A pile of coats lies gently steaming in the corner of the
rehearsal room as I enter, thoroughly drenched by the glorious British Summer

Huff Blog 19 - AGYG
It's a Sunday afternoon and I am full of Sunday roast and curled on the sofa in a friend's London flat as I write what will be my final blog (for now) for the Huffington Post. It hasn't quite sunk in yet that the show is over - come 7:30pm on Tuesday I'll p...
