First blog post after a long busy time! 💃
Friday 15th April 2016
Its been several weeks since my last blog, time has flown by and I just haven’t had the time to sit down and collect my thoughts.
since my last blog we have been to the beautiful Inverness and were blessed with the most amazing weather for the first few days, it was a busy week as we had a Tuesday start but still performed 8 shows. I was due to fly on the Tuesday morning from Gatwick and was shocked when at 5pm on Sunday i received an email from BA letting me know my flight was cancelled and no other suitable flights available till the Wednesday which obviously was no good to me. So after i stopped panicking as to how i was going to get to Inverness i found a flight from Luton which meant an overnight stay at the airport on the Monday night so i’d avoid the traffic in the morning. Luckily all went smoothly and i successfully arrived in Inverness.
our next stop was the busy city of Dublin, I tried to book a hotel as near to the Bord Gais Energy theatre some time before, however due to a big conference being held there that week everything was booked up so i ended up staying in the city centre a 15/20min walk away. Dublin city is so busy and lively, great shopping and so many places to visit, I was delighted when i realised right next door to where i was staying there was a fantastic Italian deli/cafe/restaurant. Food was not going to be an issue for me this week..
next stop Aberdeen and unfortunately the weather was not on our side and i think the same applied for the rest of the UK.. it rained all week long !!! However we had some fab audiences as always which made up for it. Aberdeen definitely wins the award for having the biggest poster of ‘The Last Tango’ displayed in the city centre, it was a little bit of a shock as i turned the corner and saw myself and Vincent 4 times our size, quite mad!!
Its a little unexplainable how it feels to have just 3 weeks left on tour, Blackpool, Stoke/Oxford and finally Southampton, last week i did a little bit of research and totalled up how many shows Vincent and I have actually performed since we stated touring our own theatre shows in 2011. It's quite an incredible number and I just feel so privileged to have been able to have such an incredible opportunity. I will disclose numbers in what will be my next an final touring blog.
