Sam Alexander - Buy Tickets
Friday 16 January, 4pm
Holy Trinity Parish Centre

Sam was in the Company when we held our 25th birthday party and you may remember that he entertained us in song. This season he must be one of the RSC's busiest actors as he has leading roles in both Love's Labour's Lost and Love's Labour's Won (Much Ado About Nothing) and is also in The Christmas Truce so we are delighted that he has agreed to come and talk to us in January.

Booking closes at 4pm on 14 January
Tickets: £6 Friends/£7 Guests (one per Friend)/£2.50 under 18s and RSC Key

Man's Best Friends
A Friends' dog walking group is meeting on the third Wednesday of the month, starting from the gate of the Butterfly Farm at 10am, then walking in a rough circle via the Tramway to end up at the Riverside café at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre for coffee. Older dogs can take a shorter route to the coffee, and variations on the route will always be considered. Please join us with or without your dog. It takes about an hour, and it's very good fun!

Please note the dog walking group has been suspended until the Spring. Please look out for the new date in your next newsletter.

RSC Friends' Discussion Group
Viv Graver, an RSC Friend based in Stratford-upon-Avon has established an informal discussion group in response to the season's plays. If you would be interested in joining the group please email her at and she will let you know when and where the next meeting will be taking place.
