My Top 5 Music Experiences

I’m getting really into blogging about music again, so today I’m here with another music-related post. This time I’m sharing my top five music experiences with you, in collaboration with independent online music news magazine Get To The Front*. It was so hard to narrow my music experiences down to five, but here they are… in no particular order! 1. Singing on BBC Radio Devon – I’ve performed many times, including a Mozart aria at my school speech day (which…

The Harry Potter House of Minalima, Soho

A few weeks ago I finally checked out the Harry Potter House of Minalima exhibition in Soho.

Think of Elvis, David Bowie, The Beatles, Freddie Mercury, Madonna… their images are almost as famous as their music! This is…

Where I’ve Been

I haven’t posted a blog in over two weeks. That’s pretty terrible, even for me, but I’m trying to get back in the swing of things. SO HEY, HI THERE, IT’S ME, I’M BACK. WHOA. These past few weeks have entailed lectures, essays (I handed one in today), presentation preparation, internship applications, a few nights out with friends, trying to cope with being a final year student, so general ‘stress’ I suppose. THEN my Macbook charger broke, so I had…
