As the kids are on school holidays and as we approach the Easter bank holiday weekend. I thought I would compile a list of ideas to keep all the family entertained (the buzz word of the moment a #listicle). Come rain or shine here are my suggestions:

A family Day out!

My Top suggestion for this weekend is St.Georges Market Belfast. It is a treat for all the senses; take in the aromas of fresh produce and coffee, stroll through the stalls of crafts and goodies. This weekend they are also introducing all patrons to a certain Alec the Goose. Pop in and see what he’s been up to I’ve heard  a whisper of him laying some golden eggs!


A trip to the cinema is a treat for the family and this Easter bank holiday there seems to be a lot of fun films for all ages my top three.

  1. Smurfs The Lost Village: A little friend of mine dragged me out to see Smurfs the Lost Village during the week and I was entranced in the adventures of all these little blue characters as much as she was.
  2. How about taking a trip back down memory lane or introducing the youngest members of the family to the enchanting tale of Beauty and the Beast. Tale is old as time and one of my favourite musical love stories.
  3. Boss Baby the premise of this one looks a baby with a briefcase who turns out to be a spy but if you are a fan of Alec Baldwin and you just want to switch off for an hour this inoffensive film is sure to entertain.Snapchat-1261599556


I love to eat out as you have seen from my food reviews recently but I also think it is a great way to get all the family together over the holidays. So if it’s an outing to restaurant or just gathering everyone around the table do like the Italians have a long leisurely long and reconnect with your family. Need some restaurant suggestions have a scroll through my reviews.



For a more grown up night out check out some of the best theatre production in town. My top three at the moment:

  1. The Importance of Being Earnest at the MAC Belfast. Thoroughly entertaining with laugh out loud moments but it also has some poignant touching moments. Check out my review for more Theatre Review: The Importance of Being Earnest.20170407_152829
  2. RED at the Lyric Theatre Belfast. Having just seen this it is still fresh in my mind and my review is yet to come but Red is educating, enlightening and most importantly inspiring. If you are looking to come out motivated and ready to take on the world this is the play for you (Theatre Review to come soon..)17862391_10154295988347064_8921710362250007149_n
  3. The Wedding Singer at the Grand Opera House Belfast; Step back in time and get ready for the biggest party in town! The show is  a fun night of rapping grannies, cheesy 80 dance moves and the cutest love story!  A fun night out but a little bit raunchy for little kid so be warned!A West-End musical set in the 80’s with a heap of well-known stars. It is sure to entertain!32087_full
