Monday 5th July 2021

Mal and I took Ellie to the park in Ramsgate and of course stopped at Alison’s Kiosk for a coffee. Ellie enjoyed seeing all the other dogs.

Back home and Paula wanted to go to Westwood. We shopped there and I also returned some online things I had ordered from Next. I really don’t like online shopping and not being able to try things on in shops.

After lunch I looked at my emails and found this:

“Hello Maggie Daniel

Unfortunately, despite extremely robust measures being in place, a member of the Hairspray production team has sadly tested positive for Covid-19. To ensure that we are adhering to the strictest of protocols, this means that all performances are cancelled up to and including Tuesday 13 July. Our next performance will be the matinee performance on Wednesday 14 July. 

We want to reassure all of our audiences that due to the strict processes we have in place at the London Coliseum, this registered case will not have come into contact with anyone visiting the venue and we are confident that we have adhered to all the required health and safety requirements. The safety of our customers remains our number one priority. 

Everyone at both the London Coliseum and in the Hairspray team are so sorry that this means these performances cannot go ahead. If you booked directly with the London Coliseum, please contact so that they can help you to book for an alternative performance of your choice. 

Alternatively, if you would like a full refund please let the team know to the same address. Full refunds will be offered to all customers who are unable to move their tickets to an alternative performance. If you booked via a ticket agent/third party they will contact you regarding refunds/alternative dates.”

We were due to go on Wednesday and this was part of my 70th birthday present and was of course cancelled last year………I think we will give up now! I am so disappointed.

More tennis in the afternoon, such a shame Emma Raducanu had to pull out.
