After a brief thought about trying to organise a costume ball/theatre evening in Hawkstone Caves for New Years (possibly to be resurrected at some point in time where planning is not so short...and I have time to go and talk to Roger) I began wondering about alternatives.

Would anybody interested in a "make and entertain" short break from 27th December - 2nd Jan?
The idea would be to pitch up on the Monday, thrash out ideas for a street theatre performance/game/adventure - make, plan and rehearse it over the week, and perform it on the New Year's evening somwhere in some town or city where we can get permission that would find that acceptable, but where there is enough other stuff going on that we don't need to advertise in advance.

Could be anywhere - UK or Europe - hired cottage or people's houses in a central place - budget to suit people that are available. Equally it could be an adult project or one that incorporates small growing creatures depending on who might consider it.

Budapest appeals if Overseas - as I've never been there, not sure for UK, fancied Edinburgh but the streets look too packed for anything to be seen - maybe Bath?

Any flickers of interest?

Not yet decided what you're doing Halloween weekend? Ben Mars and Nige Potts are running another walk/cross country panto/lrp for the public at the fabulous Hawkstone Caves site complete with Follies and Caves.

Hawkstone Manor, the grim, granite faced lunatic asylum across the hill, is in chaos.Patients with Downright Challenging Behaviours have scattered out into the darkened night, many of them now infected with Vampyre Plague. Some may ...look... perfectly normal, others have already begun their transformation into Denizens of the Night. Ada and Abraham Van Helsing have managed to track the Vampyre to its lair.

Amusing character roles, weird gribbly sound and movement parts, endless hot drinks and a nearby bed for the night, plus help with travel expenses available to anyone who feels like crewing with us on 30th October. Somewhere between LRP and street theatre, basically a series of set piece encounters at a stunning location.

And if you can't make it – have you got kit that could be borrowed? They're looking especially for graveyard stones; Roman armour; laboratory equipment and Victorianesque vampire slaying gear.

more detailed info is behind the LJ cut, email Ben or Nige mentioning my name if they don't know you if you feel like taking part or just want to ask questions...
