How we used REVL - The Ultimate Events App this Half Term #Review

How we used REVL - The Ultimate Events
 App this Half Term.

As most of you will know, last week was Half Term week for us here in Birmingham. 
Usually I would panic trying to organise lots of days out or fun things to do to keep the children entertained to avoid hearing those dreaded 'I'm Bored' words out of their mouths.

Our Half Term went surprisingly well I have to say but we did have a little help. We downloaded an app called the REVL app which is an events application which shows you everything that is on around you. It's really easy to use and totally free to download on both Android or Apple. It can give you tips on places to visit or show you what's on nearest to your home. There's so much on there, from Theatre shows to Cinema showings. We had a good look through and found two different events that I thought would be perfect for us.

Once you've downloaded the app you can set up a profile so the app knows where you are in order to locate and show you the events that are local to you. Being in Birmingham meant we had loads of options but I'm sure it's the same where ever you are in the country.

You can check out their news and take a general look at what's on or coming up. It gives you a nice wide search in case you're looking for an event not in your local area. It's great if you were planning a trip to London and maybe looking for things to do on your visit.

You can search for specific events of bands using keywords or you can search by interest or by what's near to you. I like the fact that you can search using which way is best for you.

One you have found an event, it then sends you to a ticketing partner where you can book. It's quick and easy and a great time saver. You can do everything all in one go.

I found two local events that I wanted. The first was tickets to our local Vue Cinema to see the new Lego Batman Movie. A great family day out with fun for the whole family. The kids loved the movie and I loved the few hours of peace and quiet whilst they all sat still.

Secondly I chose tickets for the Birmingham Royal Ballet to see Cinderella which was amazing. I love the Ballet so much, so this was the perfect show choice for me. Yes it technically wasn't a family outing but it was a great adults only treat that was well deserved, I think. Half Term was a a busy week as always and buzzes by in a blur but I am happy to say that with a little help from the REVL app we did have a great one this time around.

REVL is a great little app to show you what's on around your local area. We used it to find Cinema tickets and theatre tickets but you could use it to find so much more than that.

Find out what's happening near you this month using the REVL app. It's so easy!

Disclosure: We used the app to find our shows but we received complimentary tickets to our chosen events for the purpose of this review. The opinions expressed are all my own.


  1. Apps like this can be really useful especially around school holidays!

    1. they sure are, It's a great way of seeing whats on without having to all go out and look - with 3 children it takes time to get anywhere x
