Mother’s day arrives on Sunday, 15th March.
Maternal relationships are worth celebrating. Despite the occasional bumps in the road, mothers can be important and influential in our lives. Lord knows I’ve had my fair share of disagreements with my mother, but we always make it through. It surprises me how durable and loving our relationship truly is. This year, I’d like to celebrate my mother in true style. Here’s some ideas to help us both out!
For some cultural musings, head to the theatre with mum:
Michael Jackson Thriller Live: would recommend if you’d like to see an expansive showcase of Michael Jackson’s musical career (probably spanning both you and your mums lifetime!).
Les Mis: A classic, renowned for its music and art.
Mama Mia: musical featuring songs from ABBA with a feel good narrative exploring love, marriage and relationships.

V&A, Wedding Dresses 1775-2014, until Sun Mar 15; Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, Mar 14-Aug 2
