Festival update

posted in: General | 0

The festival is close … less than two weeks away … we had our weekly group meeting last Thursday and we did run-throughs of several of the shows … and they are looking great … AWESOME … touching and very moving … you won’t want to miss them … so please do put in your diary to come to performances on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings … the workshops are sounding really good too … so let me know as soon as you can which of them you would like to do.

These e-mails are not general mal outs … they go to a relatively small number of people who I know have expressed interest in Solo and the festival previously … and … right now it would be of real benefit if you could all let your contacts (contact lists) know about the festival and point them in the direction of the web site or the Facebook event page:


I’ll post all the updates this week on both those sites …

The details are below again for your convenience ….

I am still looking for a few more people to lend a hand – a stage manager – someone who could handle lights, sound, props – very simple stuff, but it’s great to know there is someone who is willing to be accountable for that side of things – last year Briane from Canada handled all that and it made a huge difference; likewise a catering coordinator – again simple not complicated, Grace and Fred did an awesome job at the last festival; and a few people to be “front of house” assistants handling arrivals, tickets, money before the shows. We had a great team last year.

In return of course you will have access to the performances.

If any of these are you please drop me an e-mail and let me know—or you can use the contact form if you prefer.

Contact page

I’m aware that there are people who aren’t on my e-mail list that you might know, and some of you have great local networks, so please pass on this information. It will also be on Facebook – the event is listed at:


There’s more to look at here:


Please ‘like’ the pages as it helps promote the event.

There will be performances each evening, three introductory workshops culminating in the option of offering a short showing of your “work in progress” on Sunday afternoon; there will also be a round table open discussion with performers and teachers over brunch.

The workshops will be £12.50 each, performances £5.00 each evening or afternoon, and a season ticket for everything £50.00, which is about a 25% discount.

Festival programme

Let me know if you are coming and want tickets. You will also be able to purchase them on the door.
