  • Celebration Lunch: 40 Years of the Friends

    PACCAR Room, Royal Shakespeare Theatre
    Sunday 26 November, 1pm

    The Friends were founded 40 years ago, and we feel this is something we should mark in a special way. We have arranged for a delicious buffet-style lunch to be served in the PACCAR Room in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. It will be lovely to meet as many of you as possible to enjoy a meal together and reminisce about past productions and events. 
    As part of the celebration, everyone will have the opportunity to tour the backstage area of what promises to be a spectacular Christmas show, The Box of Delights taking a close-up look at some of the behind-the-scenes magic.
    Early booking for this event is advised. If you have any dietary requirements, please contact Penny Kirkwood and not the Box Office.
    Tickets (to include wine/soft drinks) £25 for Friends/Patrons, £28 for Guests

  • In Conversation: Raymond Coulthard

    Stratford Methodist Church
    Friday 2 February, 4pm
    Many of you will have seen the visiting production of The Merchant of Venice 1936 which, following its sell-out run in the autumn, will be returning after Christmas, and this gives us the opportunity to welcome Raymond Coulthard to meet with the Friends.
    Raymond is playing Antonio and Arragon in this production, but he will be familiar to many for his previous roles with the RSC in Cyrano de BergeracMeasure for Measure and Heresy of Love as well as an extensive list of roles in television and on film. 
    Tickets £6 for Friends/Patrons, £7 for Guests and £3 for under 25s.
