Had fun if a little wet and windy at the theatre today. Hansel and Gretel beautifully performed and sung. The Sandman, witch and mother were both delightfully played by professional artists. Enjoyed the whole outdoor experience and it was fabulous to go to live theatre after such a long break .

We had to be in Salford in the morning so drove up the previous day to avoid the morning traffic and stayed nearby ovenight. What to do on arrival a very wet afternoon? We dropped into the Lowry and were greeted at reception with a lovely welcome from a helpful receptionist, who gave us information of where to get a drink and a sandwich (perfectly acceptable and not over-priced) then where to go to see what the Lowry exhibition was like. It was fab-U-lous! In a quiet and almost deserted gallery, it was a treat to watch video footage of the great man at work, to see a good collection of his paintings and learn more about his rather tragic life.
