Electric Picnic Show ——— Back On!

Unfortunately ‘Love, Hate, Whatever’ will not be perfomed at Electric picnic as advertised.

We have had word this morning from the organisers that they have had to cut a number of acts from the Theatre tent for organisational reasons.

While this is sad news, rest assured that we will arrange a public performance of Love, Hate, Whatever in the near future as soon as we can arrange a venue. Watch this space.

Forget what we said, We’ve just recieved confirmation from Electric Picnic organisers to say the Show Will Go On!

(no drama members can be seen at numbers : 18, 27,36,45,56,59,62,65,69,99,113,116,123,133)

Recently the group members have also been offered the opportunity to take part in a D.I.T final year fine art project. More details here.

Opportunities for screen and stage come up pretty regularly for no drama, come along and see for yourself!
