22 in the snow

First night of the new tour and I met some lovely people in Louth. three great volunteers for Curly Wurly (my new television game show) and a load of fun.

I took this photo just to prove I can entertain a audience, all be it small.

Our friend Amanda Holden is in Oldham town today. She's opening a couple of things in the North West. She's been a patron of Hard Graft for a few years now and is very supportive of our work.

Our friends at Diggle School have sent a lovely email and I thought I'd share it with you.

"Hard Graft's Christmas shows have become an eagerly anticipated highlight of our Christmas activities at pre-school. The children are able to experience first hand the joy of theatre and are always delighted and captivated by the innovative re-telling of traditional stories."

Andrea Brearley, Manager of Ofsted Outstanding Diggle Dandelions Pre-school

Thank you
