“A change is as good as a rest,” they say – and in many ways, I subscribe to this philosophy, loving my ever-changing work and not often really tiring. However, at least once a year I do try to take a full, proper break to recharge the batteries and this year’s rest was two weeks in the south of England, mostly Cornwall. We spent our time catching up with friends and family and seeing some of the most beautiful countryside and coastline in the world – including the Minack Theatre, a spectacular theatre to which I would love to bring a production…: a great holiday!
So, now it’s back to work time. Lancaster Fun Palace – back for the third year and part of the brilliant national Fun Palaces movement (www.funpalaces.co.uk) is the next major event on the schedule in 3 weeks’ time. It’s looking very exciting already – ukuleles, storytelling, hands-on maths, dance, singing, crafts, juggling and much, much more… I can’t wait!
