One of the Christmas presents I gave Mrs P was a pair of tickets for the stage show Strictly Ballroom the Musical, based on the film of the same name that was the inspiration behind Strictly Come Dancing the tv show.
Mrs P is a big fan of the show and the musical featured on the spin-off Take Two programme and seemed to me to be a splendid idea for a gift a bit different from the usual scent and jewellery.
Anyway, the point is that we will be seeing the show on Saturday across the Pennines in Leeds and we’ve decided to make a short weekend of it by booking ourselves a hotel for the night.
I can’t recall ever having been to the centre of Leeds other than to get lost in the confusing road system and we would like to see some of the sights, assuming there are any. I did take the kids to the Royal Armouries many years ago but other than that Leeds is a blank canvas for us.
So if anyone has any bright ideas about what we might think about doing on Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning please feel free to make suggestions.
