Thanks to everyone who supported the event on April 17th. Frazzled is not the word – the calmest moments for me were, surprisingly, when I was on stage. The feed back has been fabulous. FROM WOMEN’S EYES – now to be called SHAKESPEARE’S MISTRESS will, in its next life, be 10 minutes longer, one more speech and a couple more anecdotes, and maybe a tiny bit more audience participation, then we’ll be ready to roll!

Credit is due to The Scandalmongers, who captured the imagination of 150 youngsters throughout the day, (a further gig for them to be announced soon), marvellous Simon James with his perfect mixture of performance and ambience, and Pete Searles giving us the history of his sex life. Thanks also to Trinity for their uncomplaining ‘free flow’ attitude towards the whole day – I hope we shall be doing much more with them, discussions under way.

Our confirmed up-coming performances are as follows:-
