Chim-chimenee, chim-chimenee

We’ve carried out some more important maintenance work at the Old Day School this month, repairing a chimney that was looking rather less sturdy than one of Nick’s stage sets (make of that what you will).

Thank you to all who contributed pictures. Building Hamalot A workman cuddling his tool Down in the dungeons How short is the…

Rump-pull-stilt-skin

… so his name is – Roger!  What is it, boys and girls?  That’s right – it’s Rumplestiltskin! Last weekend we completed the run of our latest production, Roger, and a great success it was too.  You can see many photos of it here. This was one of our largest and most ambitious productions to…
