Post from August, 2013

Shakespeare at Arundel Castle

Saturday, 24. August 2013 10:54

Tonight is the final night of our 2013 tour. Where better to finish than the magnificent Arundel Castle, home to the Duke of Norfolk & his family. We played to an audience of 600 each night and received wonderful praise from many people.

We would like to thank everybody who came to see us perform, to the people who helped us stage the shows, to the hugely talented Cast & show directors Louise Hill & Ed Viney, and to the venues, their staff and helpers.

Hopefully we will be back in 2014 with an even larger tour, so it’s not “Goodbye” merely “Adieu, Adieu, Adieu!”
