A to Z

This morning I sang on top of a church tower (video evidence below). It was to celebrate May Day and we (6 of us) sang Madrigals from 6am-6.30am to a remarkably large and wonderfully supportive ground-level audience of around 40 people. I worked out, on emerging from the tower, that I had just performed on my highest stage to date. This, coupled with the 64 Million Artists’ A to Z challenge this week, got me thinking about the range of places I have been lucky enough to make theatre and music.

For the list below, I limited myself to one entry per letter. I was amazed at how many places I had to leave out – and I only struggled on a  small number of letters (J, Q and X). Every one of the places on the list conjures up so many faces and memories for me. (You all know who you are if you are reading this!) Looking forward to adding more places and spaces in future…

A – Archbishop Hutton Primary School

B – Big Top Theatre Tent

C – churches

D – the Dell, Stratford-upon-avon

E – Eden Festival

F – Fun Palace (Lancaster Library)

G – the Grand Theatre

H – Hall, Leighton

I – Inns (pubs!)

J – Just wherever

K – Kendal streets and yards

L – London

M – Moscow

N – National Trust property

O – outdoors

P – prisons

Q – quiet corners

R – the Round (The Dukes, Lancaster)

S – Shire Hall, Lancaster Castle

T – town centres

U – universities

V – village halls

W – Warton

X – eXciting places – on this list and more

Y – Youth clubs

Z – zoo

And here’s evidence of the tower this morning:
