200th Post celebrations

Posted on

Another milestone reached in my blogging ventures so I thought I would mark the occasion. When I reached my 100th post I decided to share my 10 favourite posts since I started blogging so I thought I would do something similar and share my 10 favourite posts since my 100th. Many of the posts have a lovely collection of photo’s to go with them.

  1. Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium I’m currently looking forward to the opening of this cafe which looks like it’s set for the beginning of next year. It is very exciting and I’m sure once I get to go I will let you all know what it’s like. I’ve got a feeling that it’s going to be very popular.
  2. Consuelo Parra – Digital Art An artist that I discovered this year. Check out some of the pictures that I have included in this post.
  3. Ronan Keating Live This seems like ages ago, I can’t believe it was at the beginning of the year. How time flies!
  4. The Struggle One of the few Poems that I wrote this year along with ‘Defeated’ and ‘Don’t Judge Me’ which I’ve also included in this list. I’m hoping to compile some more poems for 2014 because I’m not that bad at writing them.
  5. Egg-Citing Art Lots of giant egg designs in Covent garden. There are so many photos.
  6. Defeated
  7. Don’t Judge Me 
  8. A Damp Day in Camden Town This is the only time I visited Camden this year. I hope to go again next year. It’s so hard to find the time to fit everything in. There are lots of places that I had hoped to visit this year but didn’t.
  9. Carrie Hope Fletcher Photos of Carrie performing at this years ‘West End Live’. She has become one of my favourite YouTubers.
  10. Garden Wildlife It’s surprising what you can find in your own back garden. See what you can find.

Les Mis v Phantom – The Reprise

Posted on

A charity football match took place between the casts of Les Miserable and Phantom of the Opera last Sunday 11th August at Bromley football club. This post comes a little late, but better late than never I say.

The two teams played in support of Melanie Oakley-Dow, head of wigs at Les Mis who is currently battling cancer and an ex crew member, Alex Bremer who’s 2 year old daughter Lizzy recently lost her fight with Neuroblastoma – a rare and aggressive cancer. Proceeds raised from the event went to Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital.

The event was a huge success and in total raised a staggering £18, 635.10. As well as the money raised from ticket sales, on the day they held a raffle and auction. One generous spectator bid £300 on the football used by and signed by both of the teams. Overall, it was a fun and entertaining day.

The line-up included some celebrity players with Tom Fletcher of McFly fame presenting the trophy to the winning side. Tom’s Sister Carrie, who’s currently playing Eponine in Les Miserables performed an emotional rendition of “You are my Sunshine” which she found very difficult to finish but luckily the crowd were able to lend a hand. Knowing that the song used was played at the funeral of Little Lizzy made it even more poignant.

On the team for Les Mis we had Ethan Bradshaw, Dougie Carter, Lee Dillon-Stuart, James Gant, Gareth Gates, Ricky Green,Dayle Hodge, Danny Jones, Paul Jones, Chris Key, Danny Mac, Tam Mutu, Johnny Purchase, Leo Roberts, Niall Sheehy and Bob Taylor. Mario Falcone from ‘The Only Way is Essex’ pulled out at last-minute due to filming commitments.

Phantom had Chris Barlow, Francis Benali, Ben Brown, Dom Cobby, Peter Dukes, Sam Hiller, Michael Kerry, Tim Laurenti, Ralf Little, Nadim Naaman, Ryan O’Gorman, Simon Prockter, Jeremy Secombe, Richard Shelmerdine, Simon Shorten, Charlie Sims and Simon Thomas. Nothing was said about James Atherton from Hollyoaks but I’m sure he wasn’t there.

The commentary and sound effects added a light-hearted comedy element to the match to remind everyone that it was a bit of fun. One of the best bits was when they taunted Gareth Gates with the well know Will Young song ‘Leave Right now’ when he messed up. Those who don’t understand that joke, Gareth came second to Will Young in Pop idol back in 2002.

My favourite player of the day was Les Mis’ very own Tam Mutu who plays Javert in the Musical. If I didn’t know who he was, I probably would have mistaken him for a professional footballer. The full-time score was 1-1 with goals scored by Phantom’s Ryan O’Gorman and Les Mis’ Chris Key. Les Mis then won 5-4 in a penalty shoot out.

Carrie Hope Fletcher, known for her YouTube video’s recently joined the Les Miserables cast as Eponine. This was a dream come true for the 20-year-old who played young eponine when she was 7 years old. Fans that hadn’t yet seen Carrie at the Queens Theatre had the opportunity to have a sneak peek yesterday at West End Live in Trafalgar Square. Her emotional performance of ‘On My Own’ blew everyone away.

The following video is of the complete Les Mis performance at West End Live filmed by my friend Emma.

Here’s a collection of Photos I took of Carrie and the rest of the cast.

Carrie will continue to make video’s on her YouTube channel ItsWayPastMyBedtime throughout her years long contract in Les Mis.
