Welcome to the December edition of the

What’s Good To Do newsletter Firstly we would like to say a very big thank you to all of you, our website users, for helping our website grow. We are very happy to announce that we have had a record 2 MILLION HITS on our website during November! We have had a great year finding things to review with theatre show likes Ghost, The Lion King, Thriller Live, War Horse and my favourite Ha Ha Holmes with Joe Pasquale. We have also have some great restaurant reviews from small tea rooms to large national chains such as Frankie & Bennies, Giraffe, Table Table, Brewers Fayre and Beefeater. We have also visited theme parks and attractions, been to Normandy, and have reviewed hundreds of books, dvds and other products. We hope that you enjoy reading our reviews and maybe they have inspired your own days out ideas or helped you make up your mind about making a purchase. My favourite reviews of the year that I have been privileged to do were, as I mentioned earlier, Ha Ha Holmes with Joe Pasquale - an extremely funny theatre show based on Sherlock Holmes and The Hound of the Baskervilles (and I’m not a big fan of his), Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep – which is the follow up book to The Shining and the one that surprised me most was a children’s book (aimed at 8-11 year olds), The Befana Drama by Gianna Hartwright - this is a magical story that children and adults will love about Italy’s VIPB (Very Important Present Bringer) and her quest to save her festival as Santa Claus is ready to take it over! And very recently I have enjoyed the London Ghost Bus Tour and the educational London Time Tour Bus (review on page 4). We hope that you continue to keep reading our website, magazine and newsletter and finding What’s Good To Do and we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

What’s Good To Do Newsletter Featured Review London Time Tour Bus www.timetour.co.uk Reviewed by David Savage On Saturday 23 November we went on a bus tour in London - but this was no ordinary tour. The Time Tour Bus is an alternative sightseeing tour around the city with Professor Quantum as your quirky tour guide. We arrived at bus stop number 8 on Northumberland Avenue outside the Grand Hotel, just off Trafalgar Square, just before the 2.45pm departure time. The easiest way to get there is by tube to Charing Cross and is a 5 minute walk from the tube station to the bus stop. Parked at the bus stop was a black 1960s double-decker Routemaster bus where we were greeted by Professor Quantum, who is a quirky cross between Doctor Who and Doc from Back to the Future (who wears 2 sets of glasses). We boarded the bus fitted with tele-visual plasma screens, video cameras and a time phone, went upstairs and took our seats waited for the travel back though time around the London streets! For approximately 1 hour 15 minutes (this may last longer depending on traffic) we were driven around London (the driver was a robot called Metal Face – although he doesn’t know he is a robot so you are not allowed to mention it to him!). Professor Quantum takes you back through time showing you all the famous sights from Trafalgar Square, The Houses of Parliament, Westminister Abbey, Downing Street, St. Paul’s Cathedral, The Tower of London, Tower Bridge, London Bridge and more. He entertains you with historical facts about each place along with his own personal experiences of when he was there before and who he met (I won’t go into detail to spoil it for you). Along the way he will even have a video chat with historical figures with his time phone and plasma screens! After the tour has finished Professor Quantum will then take you back through time, as long as he remembers to fit a part that fell off at the start of the tour, to be back at the place you started from on Northumberland Avenue! Overall, this is a fun and educational tour seeing the sites of London and learning the history about them. Professor Quantum is quirky and slightly mad and interacts extremely well with passengers, especially the children, and getting them to join in with fun and asking questions. This is a great way of seeing the city with humour and theatrics while still be given all the relevant history behind London and its sites. This is a history lesson that kids and adults will enjoy. The London Time Tour Bus is a great family friendly interactive tour from a charming but eccentric Professor Quantum. We highly recommend it – education and fun combined, what could be better? There is a tour every Saturday and Sunday at 2.45pm with daily tours during school holidays. Tickets cost £14 for children under 15, OAP's and Students, £20 for adults or £55 for a family ticket (2 adults, 2 children). Rating: 5/5.

Theatre Land Get up close and personal as DINOSAUR ZOO roars into the West End This Christmas Opening on Sunday 1 December 2013 until 12 January 2014 At the Phoenix Theatre, London Following a hugely successful nationwide tour, including a one-month summer season at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, DINOSAUR ZOO heads to London’s West End for a Christmas run at the Phoenix Theatre, opening on Sunday 1 December, following previews from 27 November, and running through until 12 January 2014.

During the show, intrepid audience members brave enough to get up close and personal with the dinosaurs are brought onto the stage to assist the Zoo Keeper in his/her daily tasks - but be warned - not all of these ravenous reptiles are as tame as they seem! For those who aren't able to join the dinosaurs on stage, they will have the opportunity to meet them at the official ‘meet and greet’, which takes place at the end of each show. Fast-becoming a worldwide hit, DINOSAUR ZOO has played to family and schools audiences all over the world, from Australia to Los Angeles, from New York City to Bahrain, exciting children with its popular mix of entertaining humour, adventurous daring and informative learning. Australian based Erth create original live theatre at the forefront of new performance practice, inspiring audiences with their unique and dynamic vision. Since its beginnings in 1990, the company has strived to provide audiences with eye-popping visual experiences incorporating, amongst other disciplines, giant puppetry and inflatable environments. Erth has performed internationally at events and festivals, including the Sydney Olympic Games Opening Ceremony in 2000.
