Well hello there blogosphere! Welcome to my ramblings (although I suspect I will be mainly be talking to myself!)

As a little introduction I suppose I should tell you a little about myself. My name is Alison, I live near, and work in Manchester, and I am slightly obsessed with all things theatre, with a little bit of other arts thrown in. There is actually a defining point when my interest developed into obsession, remind me to tell you about it sometime.

Because I go to the theatre so much, and get involved in arts related stuff when I can, a lot of people who know me have been encouraging me to write a blog for a while, but like most things, I never got round to it. However, just recently I have a had a few opportunities to try out my writing ability, which I have really enjoyed, and people have said nice things, so I think it’s time to give it a go. Also, I’m involved in a few other things this year that it would be nice to remember, including the Manchester Day Parade and the Manchester International Festival, so I might actually have something to talk about.

So there it is, my first blog post. Not exactly Shakespeare but it’s a start. If anyone other than me is reading this I hope you enjoy my musings, I’d love to have your feedback.



  1. It may not be Shakespeare, but everyone has to start somewhere. And you never know Alison may soon be next to Shakespeare on the National Curriculum!!

    I can;t wait to keep up with all your theatre antics!!! xx

  2. Super - ramble away Alison!
