Talk with Catherine Mallyon
Friday 17 June
Wesley Hall, Stratford Methodist Church

Just a few days before the pandemic led to the closure of theatres and a halt to our activities, the RSC’s Executive Director, Catherine Mallyon, had agreed to continue in her role as our ‘Best Friend’, and we are delighted that she is happy to carry on with this. We are also very pleased that she has agreed to be our first speaker and hope you will be able to come to hear what she has to say about the challenges of the last two years and hopes for the future.


Booking closes on Wednesday 15 June
