The Nutcracker

 Final day of the year and a trip to the ballet.

We caught the train to Marylebone Station and then walked the scenic route through Regents Park and along the canal for about four miles to Sadler's Wells Theatre.

We met up with Susan and Paul for a pre show drink and then we were in.

It's a bit difficult to spot Paul, but I promise that he is there, which is a good effort seeing as he doesn't like ballets at all. 

It was a great show, but not the standard Nutcracker plot so we all got our phones out in the interval to try and understand what was happening.

Strangely in the second half most of the cast turned into giant sweeties including licorice allsorts, and one that I thought was a Walnut Whip, but was actually a knickerbocker glory. It all ended happily I think, but to be honest I am not sure.
