Fe Fi Fo Fum... It's panto time one's again at The Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury I went along to the press night on the 1st December to review Jack and the Beanstalk starring: Brad Fitt, Tommy J. Rollason, Lucas Rush, Laura-Dene Perryman and Reece Duncan.

It opened and closed with a magical set and finished with a grand finale, it's a great show for all the family and it's rare for a show to be suitable for everyone to enjoy. When it's cold and windy outside it's a chance to come down to the theatre and enjoy some festive fun. Press night's are always a joy to attend, great for meeting the cast, enjoying drinks and canipes and networking with others too.

Brad Fitt is an amazing pantomime dame, it was amazing to hear Paul Hendy the producer of the show talking about the journey it took to get Brad to become the main star of the Theatre Severn pantomimes, a performer who's very well loved by audiences year on year. Brad is that popular at the theatre his already on the poster for next year's panto Sleeping Beauty. It's amazing to hear this year's Jack and the Beanstalk at Theatre Severn is their best selling panto.

I have to say out of various pantomime titles Jack and the Beanstalk is one of my favourites.

It's great that this show welcomes a strong cast of talent of different ages and abilities.

I highly recommend, I award this show 4 stars.

Tickets are available from:

The show is running until 7th January 2024 and over 40,000 tickets have already been sold so it's advised tickets are booked as soon as possible for the last remaining seats available.

My name is Tanvir Singh and I want to share with you how this advanced suppressed technology was able to change my life to a level I never thought possible, I was able to regain 50% of my natural eyesight back with only a few months of using these techniques! 

What you are about to discover are vision SECRETS that the optometry industry does not want you to know about. If you are someone who has always needed glasses to see you do not want to miss out on this! 

Ever since I was a kid I had always HATED wearing glasses, glasses have always felt like a burden to me, I always needed them for everything because my sight was so bad. I felt restricted, I felt like I couldn’t express myself because I was so afraid, I couldn’t see! Without my glasses I’m more or less blind, I wouldn’t be able to function. 

I always wanted to be more athletic, play sports more, go swimming, play water sports, enjoy life more but I couldn’t! These dreaded glasses stopped me from enjoying life to the fullest but then it happened October 2022 I stumbled upon a GROUND BREAKING new science never before revealed!

A world renowned scientist had discovered the CURE to burry vision! Dr William H. Bates! As you can imagine I jumped at the opportunity ever so excited to finally be free from these dreaded glasses, this was a long awaited dream finally to become fully realised! I researched and studied the bates method on how to improve eyesight and within days my eyesight had improved substantially! I could see clearer without my glasses and the world was starting to look brighter! 

What made me feel very depressed was how suppressed this science really is, the world doesn’t know about this and for good reason, the optometry industry feels threatened by this new science and tries to cover it up as best they can. What I discovered on my journey was a massive need for help, so many people now suffer from glasses and it doesn’t have to be that way! What I offer is a step to step plan and personalised guidance to help you make those vision gains you want! 

I am going to be completely 100% honest with you, I haven’t reached the final stage yet, I haven’t fully regained my natural eyesight yet, this is because you can’t expect to have a quick fix overnight especially if you have started with very severe near-sightedness in the beginning. However what you can do is make remarkable vision gains very quickly with the help of an EXPERT in the field. You will progress and reach those vision gains much faster with the guide of an EXPERT than you can doing it yourself, achieve your vision gains in RECORD TIME! 

There are so many people out there that like to fake their eyesight, they wear contact lenses and do laser eye surgery to create the appearance of natural vision when in reality they haven’t addressed the ROOT cause of blurry vision, they are still the same person they were before, and they still have blurry vision. I like to be honest, it’s better to wear glasses because at least then you are being honest with the world that you do actually have poor vision. At least you aren’t a liar. I get it, you want the aesthetic appeal of looking good without wearing glasses but you are just faking it, you still have blurry vision, I can help you improve your eyesight for REAL! 

What I offer isn’t what the optometry industry offers, aesthetic appeal, I help you solve the ROOT cause of the problem by addressing the health issue that caused your blurry vision to begin with, by addressing the root cause you gain all those wonderful benefits you want such as freedom from glasses and perfect natural sight. What I discovered was that this method is the only way to get NATURAL vision not the artificial kind. 

If you want to regain your NATURAL eyesight back this is the only way to do so, there is nothing like this on the market right now that even comes close to achieving these types of results.

Do you want to finally be free from those glasses for good? Book a call here to get started on your journey.

John Lewis celebrates the joy in the UK’s changing Christmas traditions


November 09, 2023

  • John Lewis ad for 2023 celebrates classic and changing Christmas traditions and the joy we find in sharing them together
  • The campaign follows the launch of the John Lewis Festive Traditions Tracker 2023 a new report revealing both the eternal and changing ways the nation celebrates at Christmas
  • Legendary Maestro Andrea Bocelli sings the original soundtrack with a proportion of the proceeds from charity single going to John Lewis’ charity partners to help care experienced young people and families in need

John Lewis's new Christmas Campaign which launches today 9th November 2023, celebrates the joy of old and new festive traditions. 


The campaign captures a new spirit of Christmas and is inspired by the enduring and changing ways the nation now celebrates. The campaign shows how the unusual and unexpected, over the conventionally ‘perfect’, can lead to a joyful time together for everyone.


At the heart of the campaign is an energetic and mischievous Venus flytrap,  a wannabe Christmas tree named Snapper, who brings an unexpected twist and joy to Christmas celebrations.


While our customers love classic Christmas traditions, such as decorating the tree and sharing gifts, our research has discovered many families also have new ones - from all-day Christmas pyjamas to meeting up outside, a tradition that grew during lockdown. 


‘Snapper, the perfect tree’ - with the strapline ‘Let Your Traditions Grow’ - focuses on a young boy who lovingly nurtures a plant from seed, in the belief he is cultivating a perfect Christmas tree. 

The fast growing plant becomes a life force of its own with a playful personality who wants to join in all the fun of Christmas.


After a tear jerking moment, where Snapper grows too big for the living room and is cast out into the cold, he is embraced back into family life giving out presents with such exuberance that the family find a new joy in gathering around their unconventional ‘Christmas tree.’


Charlotte Lock, Customer Director for John Lewis, explains: “We are a nation that loves the traditions of Christmas - from classic traditions like pantos and putting up the tree to evolving new ones like crafting our own presents and Zoom get-togethers.  Many of us have our own unique festive traditions and that makes them even more special.


“The film celebrates themes of family and evolving traditions and shows that a ‘perfect’ Christmas is finding joy together with loved ones, whatever your traditions” 


The music is provided by the legendary Tenor Andrea Bocelli who performs a song called ‘Festa’, which means ‘celebration’, and is written and produced by Le Feste Antonacci specifically for the John Lewis advert. The rousing track is a brand-new recording, with lyrics written especially for and approved by Maestro Bocelli, to carry the joy and emotional power of our story, putting a twist on traditional music at Christmas.  


It is wildly different to AI generated predictions, which forecast that a cover of a classic ballad would feature on the soundtrack. 


Maestro Bocelli said:

“I am delighted to take part in this wonderful and unique tradition of Christmas storytelling. It is very special for me given the great support this will bring to both the John Lewis and Andrea Bocelli foundations. Joy to all of your worlds this Christmas!"


The soundtrack will be released in longer form as a charity single with a proportion of the proceeds from the sale of the single going to the John Lewis Partnership’s Building Happier Futures charities, which help care experienced young people and families in need. 

This year’s Christmas ad, which airs for the first time in Friday’s Gogglebox on Channel 4, is part of a bigger campaign which is the most interactive and shoppable ever.


In a first for John Lewis and Kew Gardens, Snapper will be part of the iconic Christmas at Kew light trail. The event has become a new tradition for many families since it launched and this is the first time there has been a brand partner integrated with the installations. 

The adventures of Snapper will also continue in 7x 10” episodic product films showcasing some of our must-have gifts from Nespresso Coffee Machines to the latest fragrance from Jo Malone, released between launch and Christmas and in December there will also be a special AR filter where Meta users can bring Snapper into their own homes.  A digital advent calendar on the John Lewis app will see Snapper reward myJL members with exclusive rewards throughout December and a host of OOH, press and John Lewis window displays will see the character showcase inspiring John Lewis Christmas ranges.


The campaign will come to life across channels, with media planned and bought by Manning Gottlieb OMD. From AV and Cinema to social and YouTube as well as activations for audiences to engage with and play with Snapper. All underpinned with brilliant opportunities to inspire and buy great John Lewis products. 


The campaign will include shoppable formats through YouTube, C4 and Google with all products featured in the ad for sale through John Lewis website, app and shops. 

The John Lewis Festive Traditions Tracker 2023 includes the latest insights into customers’ changing Christmas habits

A proportion of the proceeds from the single will go to the charity partners for our Building Happer Futures programme which supports care experienced people and families in need by providing funds to Action for Children, Who Cares? Scotland and Home-Start.
