Sewell Barn - New Season 2013 - 2014

I got an invite to pop along to our local Sewell Barn Theatre.  They had an open launch afternoon to present all of the upcoming productions that will be making up next season’s performances.
I arrived fashionably late and decided to climb to a spot rather than wiggle past people and get in the way. A lovely lady gave me a hand clambering up to a seat.
I really wish I had had the forethought to pop my notebook in my bag on the way out of the house. There were so many exciting projects introduced that I couldn't possibly recall them all.  There were not only descriptions of all the plays being described by their directors but also lots of the details of the things that go on behind the scenes and requests for actors and actresses to take part.  I had to go look on the website to remind myself of the details.

Start-up Lounge, City College Norwich

Gone are the long, dark corridors of closed blue doors, replaced by open, airy, glass-fronted office spaces.  What I remember to be grey, dull walls are now light and above the doorways you can read positive and inspiring quotations.
There's a smell of Starbucks coffee down the hall and a hustling, bustling and friendly atmosphere.  The reception staff are authentic, happy and helpful.

The Start-up Lounge
I am there to meet up with Richard Steer who has offered to show me around their Start-Up Lounge.  I wait in the Advice Shop.  Full of colour, pot plants and Information about what's on in Norwich and the College.
I'd been excited since hearing about it.  I love the idea that the entrepreneurial spirit is being promoted in the college and ideas are being incubated and encouraged.
