Hansel & Gretel Blogger Event

A few weekends ago, I was very lucky to be invited along to Hansel and Gretel Blogger Event by 
Scottish Ballet and Blythswood Square. When I read the email I knew it was a day not to be missed.

The day began at 11am at Blythswood Square where we were greeted with a Woodcutters Wife Cocktail then shown a short 'making-of' video of Hansel & Gretel in the fabulous Screening Room. After the screening, we were treated to a special Hansel and Gretel Afternoon Tea and met two of the cast members, Constance Devernay and Chris Harrison for a Q&A and had a glimpse at some of the costumes. If that wasn't enough, we pampered with lovely hand and arm massages by the therapists from the Spa.

Once we finished our Afternoon Tea we were whisked off to Theatre Royal (with a bag of sweeties & drinks tokens in hand) to watch the matinee performance of Hansel & Gretel. The performance was best part of the day. As Hansel & Gretel is one of my favourite childhood stories I couldn't wait to see the set and the costumes. It did not disappoint, it was set in an enchanted forest with dancing raven's in sparkly jackets, a fairy and an evil witch. What more do you need! It was a fabulous day and just what I needed to get me in the festive spirit.
