Influences for Danni
Danni subscribes to TimeOut; she uses it to find out what’s on and because it’s a ‘good publication’; however she doesn’t read many newspapers, getting it mainly from BBC Radio 4 and the BBC News at Ten.
Danni doesn’t read anything about what she's going to see, like a critic or review, because she likes the surprise; she doesn't want to know what other people think or she doesn't want to know the story.
