Well after some pestering I'm putting an archive online. I very much doubt that I'll do much except paste each week's email up here. don't forget to let me know your events!!


This week, 13/6/07-19/6/07

Ladders to climb on a roof? No...let's levitate!

Well it seems like quite a few of you did that anti-rain dance for Ally last week, can I now make a request for the opposite? Or maybe even one better, can you all do a snow dance? I've always dreamed of skiing to work. Theatresports wasn't quite the raging success I hoped it might be, but don't be put off, we have some better plans and more enthusiasm for this Sunday! If you're looking for a room - let me know - there are some nice ones out there, including a couple at my house that are soon to become vacant. Drop me a line!

See you out there!
