A visit to Turtle Bay Bar and Restaurant – Bournemouth

Turtle Bay B'mth

We have been itching to try Caribbean restaurant and bar, Turtle Bay, for some time now and last month we were invited to our local Bournemouth branch to try out their fab menu. Turtle Bay specialises Caribbean sharing food, inspired by beach shack & street vendors across the Caribbean islands and their menu is packed full of great tasting dishes which you can choose to share with your fellow guests, or keep all to yourself. We opted for the Jerk Jerk platter with marinated jerk wings, glazed pork ribs, Jamaican beef patty, chicken flatbread, sweet corn fritters & super green… Continue Reading “A visit to Turtle Bay Bar and Restaurant – Bournemouth”

Pirates of the Pavilion 2018 – Review

Pirates of the Pavilion

We love a good pantomime and it has always been a Christmas treat, however, recently I have noticed that they have become a summer holiday occasion too. This week we enjoyed our first summer pantomime – Pirates of the Pavilion in Weymouth and is was absolutely brilliant from start to finish. Following the record-breaking success of last year’s Christmas Pantomime Sleeping Beauty, Made-to-Measure Productions are back with a bang with this brand new swashbuckling pantomime which sees the Pirates of the Pavilion on a mission to retrieve the Lost Loot of Lodmoor. Robert Squire returns as the bumbling and love-lorn Captain… Continue Reading “Pirates of the Pavilion 2018 – Review”

Visiting Tyneham Village and Worbarrow Bay

Southwest Coastpath

We are very spoilt living in my home county of Dorset, as not only do we have the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Jurassic Coast on our doorstep, but much of the county is classed as an area of outstanding natural beauty. There are also lots of fascinating places to visit throughout the county and one we have wanted to visit for a while is Tyneham Village, just east of Lulworth and part of the Lulworth ranges which are managed by the MOD. The fascinating thing about Tyneham village, is that it was evacuated in 1943 during WWII and… Continue Reading “Visiting Tyneham Village and Worbarrow Bay”

The Pirates are back this summer at Weymouth Pavilion

PiratesMay_008

We love a good pantomime and it seems they are no longer relegated to the run up to Christmas these days. Following 2017’s record breaking summer season at Weymouth Pavilion, Made-to-Measure Productions are delighted be returning with a brand new Swashbuckling Pantomime production of Pirates of the Pavilion! . This year the Natural History Museum’s infamous Dippy visited us here on the Jurassic coast, so it makes sense that this brand new adventure has gone Jurassic and features ‘REAL’ dinosaurs, including an eye-popping Flying Pterydactyl! With spectacular scenery, toe-tapping songs, breath-taking special effects courtesy of The Twins FX and a full supporting cast of local… Continue Reading “The Pirates are back this summer at Weymouth Pavilion”
