Audience Attendance Summer 2019

Here is a graph showing the ticket sales during the summer period of 2019. It is worth pointing out that Fest Norwood is a cumulative result of all of the activities that took place at the beginning of August, and many of these activities didn’t have member tickets, so it is not possible to tell for the majority of events, how many members attended.  However the number of people attracted into the theatre is nevertheless impressive.  Peter Pan was the […]

The Night Heron – the Director’s Preview

Di and Viv and Rose – the Director’s Preview

Director Jo Boniface talks about Amelia Bullmore’s ‘Di and Viv and Rose’, opening on Tuesday, 24 September. What inspired you to choose this play?

And I loved it. I think I saw it 6 or 7 times. It was the first time […]
