Finale at the Castle

Tonight saw the final scene from the play with the discovery of the empty tomb at the castle, the fire sculptures (by Walk the Plank) and our Community Choir. Not a very long performance but dramatic enough that someone phoned the fire brigade to report that the castle was on fire! Here are a few photographs of the evening (taken by B Willoughby unless otherwise indicated):

Full Street Rehearsal

In glorious sunshine the cast of A Passion for Kendal took to the streets to rehearse all the scenes in their live locations. It was great to perform out where we will be live on Friday and hopefully the passersby enjoyed the impromptu entertainment too!
