Gig mad!


We love a good gig and there are a bunch of amazing artists coming to Scotland in 2017. We’re gonna try get one dance with Drake when he’s over… (we had to, sorry!). Plus we’re looking forward to getting our dancing shoes on when both Little Mix and Shawn Mendes come to Scotland! And we cannot wait to enjoy an orchestral spectacle as we hear the music from Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone live!

TV time!


Some nights you’ve just got to curl up in front of the TV… and we’ve got loads to watch! As well as our everyday favourites likes Eastenders and Pointless, we’re looking forward to Sherlock finally being back on our screens, and enjoying Peter Capaldi’s time as the Doctor. We’re also super excited to see what the Stranger Things gang get up to in season 2 (#justiceforBarb).
