Move over Scandi chic. In 2016, Stockholm is all about Abba-influenced kitsch. The Eurovision final is being held in the Swedish capital in May, and before that, on 20 January, Abba’s Björn Ulvaeus is opening Mamma Mia: The Party at a refitted restaurant in the Gröna Lund amusement park. A kind of immersive Singalongversion of the musical, the concept is part Greek taverna and part stage show, with a bit of audience participation. Tickets are available for the show with dinner (from £105) or with overnight accommodation at Pop House Hotel (from £196pp) which is also part-owned by Ulvaeus and in the same building as Abba The Museum.

I was born in Leicester. I attended school in Yorkshire and University in Liverpool. I have been to 93 countries and territories including The Balkans and Armenia in 2015, France and Slovakia in 2016, and some of the Greek Islands in 2017. My sense of humour is distilled from The Goons, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders. I love being creative in my writing and I love writing about travelling. My next books are a travel book about Greece and a novel inspired by Brexit. View more posts
