The Dell, Part 2 (some pics and clips)

If you read my first blog about our day in The Dell, you will probably have sensed my enthusiasm and excitement! Here are a selection of pictures and video links, which will hopefully give you a sense of why it was such a great day.

I know I put this image in the last post, but, come on, we're right under the RSC logo - you can't blame me for using it again!

And here are three short video clips of bits of the show (apologies for some of the rubbish filming – I was ineffectively multi-tasking!). If we are luck enough to go again (or do anything similar), I’d love to film a show properly (volunteer film-makers, please?) Or, preferably perhaps, take a techie and stage manager (Daniel and Mike, if you’re reading this, you’d be first choices!) so I could just film…

There are more videos, but I’m out of time for today. More uploading soon.

Hope you’ve enjoyed sharing our amazing day!

  1. The videos – even though short – really seem to conjure up the atmosphere of the day. The ‘feel’ of it comes through vividly. A perfect way to spend a sunny couple of hours outdoors in Stratford, I imagine. Lucky those who were there!
