How would you describe your mum? Is she your inspiration, your best friend, a true superstar? However, you describe your mum she deserves to be spoilt this Mother’s Day (Sunday 22 March) and the Grand Opera House have some fantastic productions to suit every mum this year. To take the hassle out of present buying we thought we would compile a handy gift guide to help you find something to suit even the hardest-to-please mum.
