Happy Tuesday! Excited for a new Pilates cycle @bishopsgate_institute Liverpool Street. Love to see you! Who doesn’t want flexibility, mobility, strength, posture, toning gains? I for one! 😊😊😊 .
Wednesday 6.00pm .
It’s cheaper to do a 6 week course but you can pay as you go. You will love it there! So tranquil and beautiful! An oasis of calm🌈🌈🌈
I am also not only on the front cover but also on a few of the walls inside! Still thrilled! An unexpected model! .
Come along and pay venue direct or over the phone! It’s best to book while places are available ;)
Have the best day Paula 🌈xx

They took 2500 photos during our dress run, and I've only posted three of them so I'm sure there'll be more to go
We finished our Matinée Sunday performance with happy sadness. Instead of rushing up to get changed, we all crammed ourselves into the doors to watch the orchestra play out one last time.
I got more drunk than I should have, but when you but the pre-drink beers, and there are leftovers, you try to make them less-leftovers before handing them out to strangers on the way to the after party!▪
The dress run went amazingly well
Everything has come together amazingly and I'm so glad I've gotten to be a part of this cast
You and the crew have all been fantastic, kind and caring people, all determined to get this show running flabbergastingly well
From a group of guys, of which half of us could barely three step turn across the hall, to sweating through the likes of Cool. It's just been great
Apologies for all the times I've hit people. I think the running total must now be in the double digits ...I don't think I can afford that many pints

When you find a way to curl your hair for show week that’s also CUTE AF! Modified my usual rag curling technique to make a super cute updo that’ll result in gorgeous ringlets! (I’ll be wearing my hair up in the show anyway, but it helps if it’s curly beforehand, and this tehnique requires NO HEAT!) If you’re not on the waiting list for West Side Story tickets then what are you even doing?! (Hopefully sitting a home looking at the tickets you bought in good time...) #westsidestory#bishopsgateinstitute#jetsalltheway

Dioramas of Spitalfields! These dioramas were commissioned by the Bell Public House, Middlesex Street and built by model maker Howard Karslake. Karslake earned reputation for his knack in model making and was given the Queen’s award for Industry for his model of the Piper Alpha oil rig, before being made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. Discovered by the landlord of the Bell in 2012, they were restored by Jenny Kallin and accepted at the Bishopsgate Institute for display. Masterpieces like the one in the picture offer a wonderful and intimate insight into the life of Londoners in mid 20th century. #howardkarslake#dioramasoflondon#bishopsgateinstitute#historyoflondon
STUNNING day taking part in @thelmto's playthrough. There's truly nothing like 'um. I got the chance to sing one of my dream roles with an 80 piece orchestra. It was insane. So lovely to be in a room full of people who share your passion and are as excited about the experience as you are. Like all good experiences, it went far too quickly, but I will never ever forget it. Super grateful.
Shout out to @lucyalicecarne @claudia_kariuki @lee_van_geleen et al for being so joyous to be around/sing with, and @freddie.tapner for such an amazing opportunity. What wonderful things LMTO does. Sooo bloody grateful. ❤
Arriving at work at @bishopsgateinstitute and the first thing I see is a West Side Story poster! It’s getting so exciting now! I also get to work in the absolutely beautiful Great Hall and sit imagining how the set will look! What an absolute dream of a venue to perform in! #bishopsgateinstitute#westsidestory#musicaltheatre
