So much snow in Derbyshire, we left for Manchester about 2pm after changing our travel plans again, we have now booked a hotel in Manchester, and going in convey to the Hotel. We collected our car, and travelled north, they are threatening severe weather conditions for tomorrow, should we be going, a definite yes.
We dropped our stuff off at Hotel parked car in NCP car parks, and went with Marian and Martin to Salford Quays, what a great place, BBC,ITV, even Coronation Street are here, with lots of restaurants and the Lowry Theatre, and a shopping Mall.Met Andrew and we all went for a meal, lovely to see him again, also Liz managed to escape before the show, the Theatre is very modern, with lots of weird and wonderful shapes, and can sit over 1700 people, we took our seats, Andrew sneaked in with us, without a ticket, but then decided to go backstage to see Liz.
Well what a show, it was fabulous, so entertaining, not sure I have seen such a good Christmas show before, all of the cast were brilliant, and I really enjoyed seeing Liz sing, I have never heard her before, she has a lovely voice. I believe it is being broadcast on Channel 5 over the Xmas period, I recommend people to watch it.
After the show we went back stage, and met Liz, also saw Ben Forster who played Buddy the Elf, main character, lovely man, what a day, well worth the trip, let’s hope we get back to Essex ok tomorrow a severe weather warning is in place.
Thank you Liz and Andrew, for treating us, we all enjoyed it.
