Hello everyone! 🙂

Back in July 2019, my parents and I saw ‘Stuart Townend and Cambrensis in Concert’ at St. David’s Hall in Cardiff.

Movie Review – ‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’

SPOILERS ALERT!!!

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

And I have seen…‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’!
