Hi, thanks for dropping in and taking a peek at Entertainment Views, my name’s Helen McWilliams and I set this blog up under the name of Break A Leg in 2013. It’s taken off in ways I could never have imagined, from being a West Midlands based theatre review blog to being able to include UK wide venues and productions. You might also find me checking out the latest gigs too. I love entertainment of all genres and I’ll go anywhere to review anything as long as the diary allows! Equally, good days out with the family are always on my radar and source of entertainment I can’t get enough of with a young son and husband to keep amused. I’m a self-confessed telly addict and movie buff as well – usually glued to a screen of some description as often as time allows.

2019 sees this little ’empire’ take a slightly different direction. As opposed to branding myself as a theatre critic and reviewing shows in search of the good, the bad and the ugly – I want to focus on sharing the experiences I love most with my readers. I like to err towards the positive side and find it so difficult to criticise at the best of times. I’ve also been fortunate enough to make a lot of lovely friends along this blogging pathway, these gorgeous folks act and perform superbly – how can I possibly stay neutral when I want to sing from the rooftops about how amazing they are? I hope that by amending the style of my blog I’ll be able to shout about their brilliance without having to worry about bias. The best of all worlds methinks!

In 2016 I decided to recognise as many entertainment professionals as I could by instigating the Break A Leg Awards. This event continued into 2017 with a public vote introduced and embraced (thousands of votes!). The 2018 awards were re-branded Entertainment Views Awards to match the new name. There was a huge influx of votes in all of the categories we included and the cyber ceremony was led by a host of guest presenters from the entertainment world. I was also incredibly lucky to have Jurys Inn Hotels and Leonardo Hotels sponsor the awards which yet again means that all the winners have a trophy to recognise their win. This addition to my blog will stop in 2019 and the aim is to bring it back when I feel I am able to give the awards the time and effort they deserve. Life’s changing and my blog needs to change with it – but thank you so much for all the support of this particular element, it’s been great fun!

Thank you to everybody who has collaborated with Entertainment Views, I look forward to more of the same over the next twelve months. Until I update you all again – I shall endeavour to continue to share my amazing experiences with you lovely people as much as possible. Happy New Year!
