Aladdin Review

May 23, 2019 in Blog by admin office

Our team attended a pre screening of Aladdin on Wednesday 22nd May at Cineworld, Broad Street, Birmimgham . Here’s their thoughts:

‘Definately a good watch! Vibrant music, dancing and costumes as well as spectacular visual effects all contributed to the successful adaptation of the famous Disney story ‘Aladdin’. Great acting and comedy from the lead actors Naomi Scott (Princess Jasmine) & Mena Massoud (Aladdin) and of course the genie played by Will Smith’

Aladdin will be officially releasing in UK cinemas on 24th May. A must watch!

Rahul Mandal wins the Great British Bake Off 2018

November 1, 2018 in Blog by admin office

Congratulations to Rahul Mandal who has won the Great British Bake Off 2018.

Rahul is 30 years-old, and lives in Rotherham. He moved to the UK from Kolkata in 2010 aged 23 for university. He studied his PhD in optical metrology at Loughborough University.

He is now a research associate at the University of Sheffield’s Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, and he specialises in light-based measurement of engineered components.

Rahul didn’t start baking until he moved to England.

“Even five years ago I really had no idea about The Great British Bake Off,” he said.

But after one of his colleagues realised he loved baking, he encouraged him to apply.

“He kept sending me the application link, until I said to him that I have started applying,” he said. “Colleagues I knew during my PhD don’t have a clue that I can bake. Back in India I didn’t bake either.

“All of them and actually myself are surprised that I made it into the tent.”
