I’m fairly sure that everyone who has seen the Lion King has sung that at the top of their lungs once or twice. The Circle of Life is one of the most iconic songs in the entire history of Disney and one of my personal favourites as well. I adore the music in this film, so when we were able to get discounted tickets to see the West End stage version, I was thrilled.
We were also lucky enough to get a VIP package included, which certainly made us feel special.
Is the musical better than the film? Is the VIP package worth the money? Where should you sit, and which seats are the best value? All will be revealed.
It’s official. The I’s have been dotted and the T’s have been crossed, and I’m set to move to the other side of the city next week. It’s time to say goodbye to my rubbish house share and move back in with my housemate of three years from uni, who is coincidentally also my best friend. It’s going to be pretty amazing, despite the longer commute and higher rent. You can’t have everything, right?
I’ve also been getting back into the swing of work after being away for a week. It’s such a culture shock to return back to the sights and sounds of the city after spending a week in a small town. I think I relaxed into my time off a little too much because going back to work was tough, but I made it through.
Also this week, one of my dreams came true. I’ve wanted to see this musical ever since the Lion King roared onto the London stage in 1999 and on Wednesday I got to live my dream. Plus, we did it in style, celebrating Holly’s birthday with fabulous Circle seats and a champagne celebration package. Stay tuned for a special review post coming later this week.
