A little salute for Drury Lane

This idea is, undoubtedly, not unique to the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, but it deserves applauding nevertheless.

Newport International Airspace

We've just started something new in Newport. With the support of Arts Council Wales, National Theatre Wales TEAM and Newport City Council we have begun a new arts collective called Newport International Airspace. It's a name that just stuck with us and it looks good printed across our newly acquired cheque book.
