Mis-quoted and slightly disgruntled!
If you read the article in yesterday’s Nottingham Evening Post (page 7 of Monday 24th September issue) we would like you to know that Jayne Lewis, our Creative Director, was mis-quoted. We were pleased to have an article in such a well known paper and the photograph looks great but it wasn’t the story we agreed to. Here is the actual press release which Jayne wrote;
Our family friendly comedy performance of Horace went down a storm on Wednesday, at the very first WEYA Festival in Nottingham.
It rained…then it poured, but the audience still roared with laughter!
