A Trip to the National Theatre with a Difference.

A couple of weeks ago my husband and I really treated the children.  We collected all three early from school to take them on a trip into London, we were due to arrive at the National Theatre (NT) by 5.30pm, not to watch anything within the actual theatres, but to see a friend who is trying to make it big time in the music business - Jem Cooke.  I have known Jem since she was 11 years old, her younger sister Amy was my bridesmaid, I got married from their house and their parents Dave and Tina are my 10 year old sons God-parents.  Most of Jems 'gig's' are late at night in clubs - not the sort of place you can take the children.  This one however was in the foyer at the NT - perfect time for catching folk who are having a drink before leaving for home from the city and those arriving early for a meal before a performance.

it was interesting for us to see a 'drawing' group all doing their own takes of the scene.
Bean Burger and Fries to end the evening off nicely on the train home.

It really was a most wonderful evening, we were back home for 9.30 and the two youngest still managed to get up for school the next day with a great story to tell.
