I'm off to see the sights!

Today's a big day in the Baggy household - I'm off to London!

I'm not dreaming of streets paved with gold, although that would be nice. No, I'm catching an early coach and being whisked along the highways of Hampshire to a theatre in Drury Lane.

It's not to see a stage version of The Waltons, although Richard Thomas did appear in the London production of Art a few years back. I have a ticket to see The War Horse. The book was published in 1982, the play first performed in 2007 and most recently it's been transformed into a Steven Spielberg film.

Each version will have its own special elements, but for me, it's the puppets that I'm most keen to see.

It'll be a moving story and a long day - but a wonderful one too, I hope.
