Weekend in London!

Hi everyone! This weekend I headed to the best city in the world with one of my closest friends for a night at London’s O2 arena to watch Lee Evans on tour. I bought tickets last November and had been looking forward to this weekend for so long that I couldn’t wait to arrive! image I met my friend at her house in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, and we caught the train to Kings Cross station before navigating our way across the tube lines until we arrived at the famous Millennium Dome. I’ve been to this venue before to see various shows and concerts and it’s size and stature has always blown me away and I absolutely love it’s design! 02  02 pic The O2 isn’t just a concert venue, it’s so much more than that. With a multi screen cinema, bowling alley, numerous bars and plenty of well known restaurants you could come here just for an evening out with friends or to spend the afternoon lunching. You could even climb the roof of the dome if you are feeling a little more adventurous… That’s definitely on my to-do list for the next time I visit! cinema cabana After arriving at the venue just before 5.30pm we had plenty of time to kill before the show and so we headed for some dinner and drinks to help pass the time, plus we were incredibly hungry! There was so much choice that we could’ve eaten in about ten places but we opted the all you can eat Chinese, The Water Margin, which was great value for money and the food was brilliant! The dinner deal was £14.80 per person with drinks payable separately and this entitled you to as many food courses as you could manage; with three plates each it’s safe to say that we certainly made the most of it! chinese After our meal we headed to the ticketing entrance and made our way up to block 410 to take our seats (row R, 671-672) which I must say were very high up but we had a great view of the stage and the whole arena. We were directly opposite the stage and I’d sat in similar seats at a concert there last year so knew what kind of view to expect. empty arena me n steph Lee came out on stage at 8pm and played a fantastic show until 11pm so he kept us entertained for hours! He was absolutely brilliant and so funny with all new jokes that had everyone in stitches; my cheeks were hurting so much from laughing! There was a short interval at around 9.30 and a brilliant finale which involved Lee donning a sparkly jacket and playing the piano dedicating a song he’d written to his wife who was in the audience that night. He sang brilliantly (I didn’t know he was that talented!!) and then ended the show with his famous rendition of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody which had the whole audience rocking and everyone was on their feet. It was a fantastic end to a truly amazing show and we had a brilliant night! lights After making our way to the packed tube station and heading back to King’s Cross via the Northern line we arrived back at Hatfield train station at around 1am well and truly exhausted and ready for our beds! But I had a brilliant time and am already planning my next show night as I can’t wait to return to The O2! me n steph kings cross My next trip is a spa day in Oxford which is coming up on 18th October so I’ll keep you posted on that and the other adventures I’ve got planned for the rest of the month! For now, thanks as always for reading, and I’ll write again soon. Love Jess x
