So on Monday evening my mum and I took my grandma and her sister to the theatre. My grandma’s sister comes from Germany and doesn’t go to the opera and the theatre anymore. We thought we would surprise them both as an early Christmas present.
Of course there were roadworks everywhere! So it took us an extra 15 minutes to get there. My grandma had clicked on that we were going to the theatre but I told her a white lie so she’d cancel that idea out! Haha. I’m mean I know! But she would ask A LOT of questions if I had said yes.
We got there and there wasn’t much parking spaces so we stopped behind the disabled parking area and I helped them get out and back in to the warm. There was a bit of cufuffle before that. Some woman decided she wanted to park in-between the disabled parked cars. This woman was adamant to get in-between so my mum kicked off because she wasn’t even a blue badge holder.
I collected the tickets from the box office and waited for my mum to park so she could help them up to their seats. We took the lift up as 2 flights of stairs would have been far too much for them both. We got them to their seats, which was nice as the man let us in with them. Moments later we left and the ballet shortly started.
My mum and I went out for a meal to Bella Italia. It’s not very often we get to sit down and have a meal together. It’s always my sister and my mum that go and I’m always working! So it was my treat for her to pay. After finishing our meal, we booked Elf the musical for next Christmas! yay!
We got the bill and headed back to the theatre and wait for the ballet to finish. The town was done up really nice with lights and a Christmas Tree so we walked through the town and back just in time for the ballet to finish.
Walking up the stairs to the top where they were, we had noticed they’d missed out on some posters and other things so we decided to bring them back down that way, instead of the lift again. We met them outside the doors of where they were.
My mums auntie said she absolutely loved it and had always wanted to go and see it. Now she has, it’s made her trip to England more worth while. It took some time to get down the stairs, but they managed it! I had bought them a programme each and collected some leaflets as my mums auntie likes to keep an album of reminders.
They had such a good time, I’m so glad we managed to get tickets in the end.
Please take a look at the pictures I took for them below!
