(aaaand an awful IPhone pic of course)
The show was split into two hour long halfs, the first of which entailed a Q&A from audience members, and a little sing song from Darcy to Let It Go. Even though she was a little bit shy, it was adorable nonetheless and you could just see she was loving time on stage with her mummy. Throughout the majority of the time Darcy was sitting at the back of the room on an upper level with Matt, and could be heard welcoming question askers (that's now a word if it wasn't before) as she echoed a few names. It really was heart warming. Many of Louise's family members were present and it really did feel like a little friendly gathering, as opposed to ridiculously long queues of screaming viewers other conventions can provoke. Being a small event at the Guild Hall with 220 tickets sold, I feel so lucky to have been present at Louise's pilot, a she described it. It was just such a relaxed, humbling experience.
During the second half, there was a Louise Quiz where 8 viewers could participate, more Q&A, a few embarrassing tales and eventually, a selfie with the lady herself. I never expected to get a picture with her at all, so that was quite literally the cherry on top of the already iced and sprinkled cake. Another thing to mention is the goody bags, that were full of generous touches emblazoned with 'aloha sprinklerinos' or 'sprinkle of glitter', including a pen (that has already made its debut in my maths lesson this morning), a badge, a signed picture, a pot of glitter and more. Oooh I almost forgot - there was even Sprinkle Of Glitter water. You can bet I'll be using that bottle until the label falls off for lunch everyday.
If you ever get the chance to attend a live show from Louise, I'd seriously recommend going. It was the most intimate (as Louise said, not that kind of intimate haha) affair that I didn't want to end. Louise, if you ever read this post - congratulations, you were bloody amazing.
