With a week to go Big Ted came to meet our daffodils!
Big Ted blesses the singing daffs – Edward Cook and Miranda Webb – who will be singing the opening spring song for a Shakespeare production in St Michaels Without.
This is a new venture for the beautiful church of St Michaels Without in Broad St, Bath – they are to play host to the combined efforts of the Rondo Theatre Company and Bath Drama in a production of Love’s Labour’s Lost. The show will run from the 9th – 13th june at 7.30pm, tickets available from Bath Festival box office (01225 463362). The director, John Reid, promises that – “we have tried to give the play a Mozartian flavour as befits the operatic style of the comedy. The beautiful acoustic of the church gives wings to all the words and songs. We hope that we can do justice both to the venue and the poet. But most of all we want to win our audience’s hearts with the sparkle and fizz of the comedy.”
The production will be raising money for the cancer care centre at the Royal United Hospital, in support of the forever friends appeal.
