Alex Morley Christmas Spectacular at Stonham Barns

In the half term, and any odd Sunday with the boys, one of our favourite places to visit is Stonham Barns. In fact it's also a go to with my mum, my boyfriend or even somewhere to go just by myself.
With a mixture of shops, attractions and an occasional car boot it is an ideal place to visit no matter what the weather is like.

We had the chance to visit around Christmas to watch the Alex Morley Spectacular Christmas Show and as I don't take the boys to the local Panto because they go with their school, I felt this was ideal for us to be able to have a Christmas Show experience.
With my Ukraine trip and then working either side of Christmas we went a few days after Christmas, and we still really enjoyed it. In fact as I watched I thought how it would be the perfect thing to watch to then go home, eat a roast dinner and sit around the Christmas tree feeling all Christmassy.

Anyway, before I get onto that, a little bit of background as to why I was a little extra excited and had high hopes nd I think evefor this show.
Over 10 years ago, before the boys were born, my ex-husband and I used to visit the panto in Watton, Norfolk. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law were always in the panto, set up by the local production, so we would go along to support.
During the panto Alex the Clown would make an appearance, and I think everyone was impressed by the talent and confidence of someone so young. I recognised the name when I saw the show Stonham Barns were advertising so was sure it would be a hit.

My biggest thing when going to see a show is whether or not my children enjoy it, and the best way to see that is just by looking at their faces and watching their reactions during the show.
The boys were smiling all the way through, with fits of giggles whenever Alex came on, and especially so when it involved his double act with Robbie.

Singing, dancing, magic and gymnastics make this show a real variety performance and make it a great mix of circus, and a theatre performance.
The set was so professional with a beautiful staging and lighting. The atmosphere was really lovely and everyone looked like they were having as much fun as we were.

This year we would definitely go before Christmas as our alternative to the local panto. And if the Christmas show was anything to go by, I'm sure the other shows put on during the year are just as worth a visit.
