Wowcher Does Christmas Jumpers

christmas-jumpers

It wouldn’t be Christmas without festive cheer, mince pies… and, well, exploitation over our somewhat ludicrous decision to comply with the “tradition” that is Christmas jumpers.

But before what is meant …

September 2016 saw the much-anticipated return of the Wowcher Summer Party, this year a Friday of Rio Carnival-themed festivities in the beautiful grounds and buildings of Beaumont Estate. Our benevolent leader, Roland the kind, magnificent and handsome (pay reappraisal next week), treated the entire staff to a hotel stay that included a sports day, a Wowzies ceremony and a huge buffet feast followed by an …

Wowcher Reviews Little Shop of Horrors

This week sees the beginning of a nationwide tour of the comedy musical Little Shop of Horrors hit Wimbledon. The show first rose to fame in 1982 before being made into a cult musical movie in 1986. Whilst perhaps not your usual happy-go-lucky West End musical, Little Shop of Horrors certainly packs a punch with its kooky storyline, catchy songs and colourful characters. The show …

Things-that-made-us-go-WOW2

February doesn’t get much credit, but it’s actually my favourite month of the year. Firstly, it signals the ends of Dry January; secondly, it’s a whole 11 months until we have to battle through Dry January again, and finally, it’s the shortest month of the year, reminding us all that size doesn’t matter (right, lads?). So as we enter March, let’s take a look back …
