Imperium (part2)

Could call it a cultural couple of days for us. On Wednesday we went to the delightful Swan Theatre at Stratford to see Imperium. Clare was keen to see this having read the trilogy of books only problem was there was only one seat available from mid December when we booked till the run finishes mid-February! However there was a standing ticket up in the gods also available. So I was chauffeur and felt like I was consigned to the servants section! However, there was a seat free by Clare so I moved down after the first interval. Excellent play, simple but effective set making good use of below the stage. This was Clare’ s special event to mark our wedding anniversary. Read about mine later in the blog.

Last night we went to Workers Gallery at Porth in the Rhondda to see my brother performing his poems with music provided by his pal Paul. Delightful evening with Chris and Gayle who run the Gallery talking about how it has evolved. If you are ever in the Valleys go and have a look.

Start back on the Story Telling Road next week with two very different Gigs.

Any of you in the local area I will be performing with Dan Everett a superb singer songwriter on Friday February 2nd from 7.30 at Kingshill House in Dursley. Should be a good evening will keep mentioning it over the next three weeks-it is free!

Finally my wedding anniversary treat is tomorrow and the F.A. Cup. I am off to St James’ Park Newcastle, really looking forward to a great day out. Not many people can say they will have visited two St James’ Park watching their team in a season. I hope you know where the other one , a clue the two grounds are opposite ends of the country!
