It can be hard to take a favourite book and do it justice on stage, but this show really works. Sticking mainly to the original words by Dr Seuss (with the occasional added miaou!), the small cast speed through the poem, bringing Cat in the Hat chaos to a theeatre packed with families.

We’ve been lucky enough to taste Cook’s new range of  Chinese take out food. I love food from Cook, they make one of my favourite dishes, their Indonesian Vegetable Curry.

Feedback can be a fabulous thing; it can help us understand our strengths and learn how to build on our experience to do even better in the future.
