I Won't Title This By The Clash Song...


Well, Bart and I got tickets to
THE Peter Pan event of our lifetime.

YES,
I will be going to London
in June.

We’ll be in attendance of
Peter Pan at Kensington Gardens.
A full-scale, historical production of the play in the original home of Peter Pan.

I’m still in a haze about it, perhaps because I am mired in making arrangements. But every now and again I realize I will finally get to roam in Kensington Gardens. The Round Pond, the Broad Walk, the Gates where the balloon lady stood and most of all – Bird Island. To see that with my own eyes!

Oh, and then, there’s the fact that it’s London. Besides the usual sights and grandeur, I’m especially thrilled on account of all the literary culture. Not only will one find Peter Pan, but Dickensian characters galore, the original super nanny, a bear lost in Paddington Station, a curious little girl, the world's greatest detective and the demon barber of Fleet Street. And I’ve missed many, I’m sure.

I’ll update as I have info.

Bar-Reinventive! A Peter Pan EVENT

Congratulations! It's been a long time coming that you go ;) And what a wonderful excuse to make the plunge.

I'm so happy for you! (And a little jealous, I'll freely admit.) I love London and I think you will too.

Who's the curious little girl?

Peter said...

The curious little girl, of course, is Alice.

Moira Lewelyn said...

That's what I thought, but Alice comes form Oxford, so I was confused...

Peter said...

I'd been thinking of the boat trips on the Thames, where he told Alice Liddell the stories.

Ah yes indeed... You know, if you get the chance you can take a bus to Oxford from London, it's full of magical places and definitely worth a visit for a day.
