It’s not uncommon for the odd invitation to drop into my inbox asking me to review food or a restaurant, but a couple of weeks ago I received something a bit different. A company not seeking my opinion but instead asking for the Half Pint to give his…

FAMILY DINING AT REV DE CUBA

It should be a crime to spend a Sunday in a stressful manner.

I like a Sunday to be as lazy and as relaxed as possible, spent with my most favourite people, Mr LouBou, the half pint and the squishee. So when an invitation pops in my mailbox for the whole family to check out Rev de Cuba’s latest food menus, it’s a no-brainer for a family Sunday lunch-type situation. 

Rev de Cuba in the Theatre District definitely holds the trophy for best nightspot up ‘that end’ of Central Milton Keynes but in holding that trophy you can’t help but wonder is that all they are capable of? Can they really satisfy a family meal over some of the heavily branded family restaurants that share the same postcode? 

WHAT’S ON: CHRISTMAS LIGHT SWITCH ON DETAILS FOR MILTON KEYNES

With November now in full swing, the impending arrival of Christmas and all it ensures is hard to ignore. This week I drove down Stony Stratford High Street to witness a big group of people erecting the Christmas lights high above the pavements of one of MK’s beloved market towns and it did give me a little buzz of excitement. What is prettier on a dark winters night than seeing your local high street alight with the colours from strings of lights and decorations? How about witnessing the official switch on? When hundreds upon thousands of local people flock out in the cold, with smiles from ear to ear  to countdown a very traditional starting point for the festive season.

HALLOWEEN CIRCUS AT FROSTS WOBURN SANDS

If you frequent my local area of Milton Keynes then I am sure you have heard of Frosts in Woburn Sands

It is ultimately a garden centre but local peeps know it offers so much more than that. Frosts put on an impressive array of events throughout the year from their infamous Santa’s Grotto, a sandy beach in the summer and a real ice rink in the winter. Then there’s the various hands-on events that can teach you how to make candles, wreaths or flower arrangements. They even advertise special events in their restaurant with various themed afternoon teas.

But for now it’s October, it’s half term, Halloween is exactly one week away and the circus is in town. Having set up home in a big black striped circus tent at Frosts Woburn Sands, they are promising spooky thrills with a Halloween themed family show. So what does that entail? Keep reading…
