Today I decided we should do the classic tourist 'must do' of going to Buckingham Palace to see the changing of the guard.  Not surprisingly the males in the family were not that keen so I headed off to get a good spot before the crowds arrived.
I got there early and had plenty of time to have a look around before it got too busy but discovered that in fact moving around during the changing is the best way to see everything rather than being in a fixed spot 'up the front'. 

The occasion was full of pomp and ceremony and was a great thing to have seen although not so exciting you'd go back again to see it again!

After the obligatory browse through a nearby M&S, I jumped on the tube to meet Richard and Michael at the Dominion Theatre in the West End.  It was pouring with rain when I came up from the underground but no matter, the theatre was directly beside the exit so we went straight inside and picked up our tickets to the musical 'We Will Rock You'. 
The show has been running at the Dominion Theatre for 10 years and it was obvious why.  In the same way that Mamma Mia was a story made around the songs of Abba, We Will Rock You is a story made around the songs of Queen.  We differed  on our opinion of the story itself however we all agreed the show was awesome.  The energy, entertainment and great voices made for a brilliant show and one I'd happily pay to see again.  Our seats were great, in the Circle.  It was awesome!
Funny story for anyone who remembers the original popstars/idol before they took off where they created a band called "Hear'say", the lead guy in the musical was one of the members of that band (Noel).  Funny where they end up, one of the other members has been on Coro for several years now.
We were buzzing by the time we came out and glad that what had been a bit of a stab in the dark as far as which musical to go to, turned out to be so brilliant.
Matt suggested one of their favourite Indian takeaways for dinner ('The Holy Cow!) and it is now our favourite too....the curries were delicious and the Mango Lassi the best we've tasted.
Another great day!
