    When I first moved to London, after I was settled I eagerly made plans with some of my best friends for them to come, visit and of course, explore the city. With each of my best friends, I decided to treat us to theatre tickets as it’s something we’d not done together before.

    As someone who loves West End Theatre and at least trying to be cultured, it’s kind of shameful to admit before last month I’d never been to watch a ballet. So, when I was contacted by First Direct about taking a trip to see a Christmas classic, The Nutcracker at the New Victoria Theatre in Woking, I leapt at the chance. Rubbish ballet pun intended. The Nutcracker is a two act ballet, originally written by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov with…
