Hummingbird Centre

During Carmen rehearsals in 20we put out a call for raffle prizes.  Imagine our surprise when local charity, The Hummingbird Centre, (also a registered charity) donated us a hamper!
We thought it only fair to ensure our audience members had an opportunity to acknowledge this and we're pleased to say that we have been able to make a donation £100 to this worthy local cause.

2016 St Edburg's Christmas Tree Festival

Bishop Carpenter C of E Primary

In our quest for cable reels/drums for the set of our production of Carmen The Musical, we were pleased to have been able to help out Sharon Lyons of Bishop Carpenter Church of England Primary School, who wanted some smaller drums to transform into play tables for the younger children.

The set from our past productions of Hello Dolly (2014) and The Magic Lamp (2013) were donated to Heyford Park Free School for their production of the Wizard of Oz.(2015)
