I’m excited

Two bits of news caught my eye today and made me excited for 2012 (I’m not a sports fan!):

1. Harry Potter studio tour

As a big Harry Potter fan I was pretty disappointed when they opened a theme park all the way out in Florida and left us UK fans out in the cold. But then I heard the news that from Spring 2012 we will be able to tour around the studios in Leavesden, Herts where the films were made and see all the sets like the Great Hall and the common rooms plus the creatures effect studios where they made all the animals. It will be a 3 hour tour and tickets go on sale in October.

2. Bridget Jones live

I’m partial to a good musical and I loved the Bridget Jones books and films, although the second one wasn’t great so I got very excited when I heard there was going to be a BJ musical joining the West End in 2012. Then I got more excited when I heard that Sheridan Smith (who I saw in Legally Blonde and who is in Gavin & Stacey) would be playing Bridget. Lily Allen is co-writing the songs for the show so it promises to be a witty, catchy treat even if I’m scared of turning into her one day πŸ™‚

Has anything caught your excitement this week?

  1. Oh! Both of those sound great! About the only thing I’ve got excited about is the thought of a new Sherlock Holms film coming soon….
    p.s. I managed to see HP last week…. thought it was great bar the ending which was a huge disapointment…. although it has been left hanging.. there could be a Dumbledore Seamus Potter book in the making?

  2. urgh, harry potter!!!

    i actually want to see sarah millican on tour – she’s doing a few theatres near me so I want to go, it’s only Β£20 a tix! But I hope that my mam wants to go for her birthday (hah!) . AS you can tell, I love her!

    Oh and I’m still excited on X-Factor. And the fact that I could be going up to Newcastle/Northumberland in 2012!!! πŸ™‚


  3. I would love to go on the HP Studio tour ~ sit down for tea in the Great Hall, visit Hagrid’s cottage, and have a butter beer! πŸ˜€

    I’m excited about a gallery opening on Friday night ~ and an Open House on Sunday. Both are FREE events (so the price fits my budget). πŸ˜€

  4. Yes! The post I’d intended for today was a reflection on some videos and animated GIFs and old friend sent me. I’d thought some of them were gone forever when my laptops were stolen in a burglary some years ago! So much fun to see those glimpses of my law school days.
