Thomas & Friends Tale Of The Brave Screening and Review


At the start of this month we were lucky enough to be invited to go and see the new Thomas film at Drayton Manor’s 4D cinema. Even though the film had been at cinemas over the end of the holidays and had been out on DVD for 2 days prior to the screening, I had just about managed to prevent Scott from seeing it until that point (though he had managed to find it on YouTube – grr!).

Just for clarification: me and my sister are the old people!

It was Saturday and that meant day 2 of LolliBop. My nerves had just started repairing themselves and it was time to be setting off again. This time I was feeling a lot more relaxed as I had back-up, plus I knew what the event was like and knew what bits I was really wanting/needing to see still.
