There’s something exciting happening in the world of theatre! The world’s first cycling theatre company, The HandleBards, pedal from venue to venue with all the set, props and costume necessary to perform environmentally sustainable Shakespeare across the globe. How blooming exciting is that?!
This summer you can see either Romeo and Juliet or Twelfth Night all across the UK. We are super excited that they are bringing sustainable outdoor theatre at a very accessible cost!
Star of hit West End musical Oliver! Jodie Prenger (Nancy) and three other female cast members took time out from rehearsals last month at The Theatre Royal, Drury Lane to exercise their green fingers and dig in with their pink spades to help Breast Cancer Campaign.
They planted a range of pink and white bulbs in the Rose Garden of London’s Hyde Park to raise awareness for the charity – we can’t wait to see a spread of pink and white flowers next year!
Actress Jody Prenger, who plays Nancy in Oliver! said, “By planting the pink bulbs we want to encourage gardeners across the UK to buy P. de Jager’s Pink Bulb Range, identified by the pink ribbon on the packaging, and to help raise much needed funds to support Campaign’s invaluable research.”
Breast Cancer Campaign aims to find the cure for breast cancer by funding innovative world-class research into the disease. Each year 45,500 women and 300 men are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK and Campaign’s research aims to make significant impact on the lives of patients by improving diagnosis and treatment.
