Sometimes it can be quite hard to spend quality time with Bella and Sienna on their own. Do you find that too if you have two or more children? I like to be able to spend time with the girls one on one and I love that there are so many things I can enjoy doing with Bella now she is getting older.
One thing we do like doing is going to see shows and musicals. Last year, we were invited to see The Mousetrap at St Martin’s Theatre. Back on the 12th April 1958, The Mousetrap broke the then current world record for the longest running theatre show. The previous title holder was Chu Chin Chow at five and a half years. 60 years later, the show is still running that’s some achievement, isn’t it?
Travelling to the theatre
The Mousetrap is a murder mystery play by Agatha Christie that opened in London’s West End in 1952 and is still running to this day. The show is family friendly but recommended for children aged 12 and over but is suitable for younger children too from 7. This made it perfect for Bella as she was 8 when we went to see the show. It also gave us the opportunity to get all dressed up to enjoy a mummy and daughter day which is always a lot of fun.
Outside St Martins Theatre
The play is brilliant, we both really enjoyed it! We didn’t really know who the killer was, so it was a big surprise for us at the end. Don’t worry, I won’t tell who was it and spoil the show for you but I can tell you that it will keep you and your little ones super entertained and engaged for the whole show.
Inside St Martins Theatre
Bella loved the story and also love the whole mystery aspect too. Trying to get all the puzzles together to find who the killer was, was for sure a lot of fun for her.
The Mousetrap is still running at the St Martin’s Theatre with 8 shows a week at 7,30 pm Monday to Saturday with a 3 pm matinee on Tuesdays and Thursdays and a 4 pm show on Saturdays. Running time is approximately 2 hr 20 mins.
Is this something you and your little ones would enjoy?
*Disclosure: we were invited to attend this show in exchange for some socials but Bella and I enjoyed so much that I decided to do a review.
Thanks for stopping by,
Love you all ❤️
