Week 34 2016

Wow! We saw the Battle in all its glorious night time splendor!  A great show, the lighting effects are super and the performances were excellent.  It really is a great re-make of the classic.  Elements of the previous show remain and a new take on the story doesn't disappoint.

If you haven't seen it yet, it's not too late... 2 performances remain for this weekend.  Many thanks to CD for her great photos.

For those of you who have already been, there's plenty of other things to do in the Dordogne and Gironde regions this week.  Have a great time.

Best wishes,
