Pull Up A Chair, with our Chair! Some feedback

MENTORING SCHEME FOR POTENTIAL NEW DIRECTORS One of the suggestions that arose from ‘the pull up a chair’ initiative with Hilary Cordery, our Chair, is that we formalise a mentoring programme for prospective directors who need to gain experience prior to initially submitting ideas for a possible bar production. This has happened informally for some years with some members shadowing experienced directors to gain experience to help them decide if directing is a route they would like to follow. The Board […]

Set after the murder of Thomas a Becket in Canterbury Cathedral in December 1170, Paul Webb’s play explores the aftermath for the four Knights who committed the deed on the orders of Henry II, who then tried to absolve himself by saying […]
