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 🙂
