Whilst news of when exactly our next tour (Great Expectations) will be - is not yet available we do have some good news at Hotbuckle headquarters here at Mill House Farm in Shrophsire and that is that the ducks on our pond have produced some beautiful young ducklings who competitively follow their mother everywhere and are a wonderful sight to behold ....and we have been awarded some Covid 19 Emergency funding from the Arts Council courtesy of the National Lottery. Whilst we have been unable to tour our rather lovely production of Tess of the D'Urbervilles this Spring we will now be putting our time and energy into making podcasts/radio plays of all of our classic productions over the last 10 years which will be available on this website as well as some other streaming outlets (watch this space)
None of this of this would have been possible without this funding for which we are truly grateful! So thank you #NationalLottery players for making it possible fot the Arts Council to provide us with some emergency support!
It is worth adding that during these awful times Hotbuckle has been the recipient of a tremendous amount of goodwill and support form some amazing people and organisations. We respect everyones privacy - we know who you are and you know who you are and I thank you with all of my heart for your incredible generocity and good faith!
Adrian Preater - Artistic Director
As compensation and in the knowledge that many of you/us will be yearning for something 'else' to do in the next few weeks while in isolation, we would like to give you the opportunity to watch a performance of Tess. Filmed at Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury last November in front of a live audience. Please feel free to watch and if you feel able to make a donation (any amount however small) to help cover our losses throughout this period it would be much appreciated! Thank you and enjoy!
