MON 7 May - SUN 13 May 2018
The Scummy Mummy Show, The Open, Norwich, Tues 8 May
I went to see the Scummy Mummies (aka Ellie ands Helen) last year and if you’re a bit of a mum who’s always on the run, you will be laughing out loud as they celebrate the scummier side of parenting. From drinking wine at teatime in a beaker to hiding from the PTA, it’s an evening of bonding and revelation. I’m sure they slipped a truth serum in the drinks during the interval as the stories being shared by the audience were brilliant!
Book tickets £15
