Time flies by when you’re having fun.
It doesn’t seem five minutes since we put our first gig on in Ropery Hall but this is our seventh autumn season. What started as a small programme with a couple of events a month has certainly developed into a rich and diverse menu of quality theatre, music, comedy and film with something for everyone.
The folk partnership with Mad Dog Folk is going from strength to strength bringing original gifted musicians to our stage and you will find more than one Radio 4 News Quiz guest in the comedy programme (it’s my ambition to get a full set, other people collect train numbers….) This year we will be working with resident theatre company Duck Egg Theatre to bring two weeks of Peter Pan as a pre-Christmas show for all the family.
Planning permission has just been granted for the extension to Ropery Hall so we are now working to raise the necessary funding to make it a reality. This would mean a huge upgrade in the facilities and the opportunity to book some acts that have previously eluded us due to our capacity.
I look forward to seeing you as the nights draw in and we head to Neverland.
