Hi folks, bit of news that might be of interest to anyone in the South West of England area – Stephanie Cole (Carolyn) will be ‘In Conversation’ at an event hosted by a theatre at Bristol University. Full details follow. I won’t be able to make it – I’ve never been to Bristol and was rather hoping not to break my duck. But if you want to go to Bristol (I believe people do) then pop along if you are able and support a good cause. They have a lovely suspension bridge.
It’s a charity event to raise funds for a Theatre Collection – Stephanie is President of the Friends group. This is a special fundraising event for the University of Bristol Theatre Collection organised by the Friends of the Theatre Collection (Reg charity no. 272392).
Stephanie Cole – in Conversation
