Bangholm Update

We have been overwhelmed with support and messages of goodwill about the plight of Bangholm and the ‘Bangholm Taskforce’ has meet twice to lay out a plan of action.

The timescale is our first big challenge and we are focussing on trying to resolve that initially.

The ‘task force’ comprises of the committee plus five others who have areas of specialism that can feed back to various interested parties (Claire Stewart, Vic Laing, Tom Stewart, Steve Phair, Nicola Pickavance) and we are extremely grateful for their time and effort and also to everyone who has sent us ideas.  Please keep them coming through markgorman@btopenworld.com.

We have a list of 15 or more contacts that could help and we are prioritising them for now.

The initial shock has worn off and I would describe the mood of the ‘force’ to be determinedly optimistic.

Thank you one and all once again and here’s to a brilliant run of Pippin.  The show’s looking great but we do have rather a lot of tickets still available so please spread that word too.

Thank you Margaret McPherson

As Hairspray approaches we have to say a massive thank you to Margaret for somehow managing to fit most people’s ticket requirements in.  After a long struggle nobody who wanted to see the show has not found an opportunity and that is thanks to her in particular.

Tonight was our technical rehearsal.  Always a tough gig at Easter.

Here is an obtuse image I captured as a reflection on the back of Grant, our lighting designer’s monitor.

And here is something lovely.

Sorry, neither of them give much away about Hairspray, but, hey, you know all about it anyway.

If you’re quick there’s abut 20 tickets left.
