It was about three years ago when we booked to go and see Les Miserables at Leeds Grand Theatre. It was some time since the show had last toured and I was looking forward to seeing it. We booked three tickets so that Eleanor could come with us and thought it would make a nice treat for Mick as our tickets were for the 13th of August 2020, the night before his birthday.
We all know what happened in 2020, just about everything got cancelled owing to the pandemic. Our tickets were transferred to a date in 2021 and we just hoped that everything would go ahead without any further delays, but that was not to be. The show was cancelled again and a further date pencilled in.
It's been quite a wait since we booked our tickets back in 2019 but it was worth it. We finally got to see it last night and it was a fantastic show. We had really good seats at the very front of the upper circle so we could see everything that was happening on the stage. It was a wonderful production with fantastic stage sets and scenery, and amazing performances from the cast.
We all had a brilliant night out and in the end, it turned out to be a lovely pre Christmas treat.
