On, on, you noblest English!


Okay, so England may not have fared quite as well as we dared to hope in the World Cup... but so far we've completed seven performances if our Henry V , and England has won the Battle of Agincourt every single time! Each night, a coin toss decides who is to play Henry and lead the charge - for those keeping count, we're so far up to 5-2 (Tom/Kelly), with three performances left to play for.

We're nearing the end of our time at the Bristol Shakespeare Festival - so if you're keen to catch the show before we pack our wooden swords away, there are still a handful of tickets available for the shows at Fishponds Library this evening, Whitchurch Library tomorrow, and of course the grand finale at the beautiful Bristol Central Library on Friday evening. Book via the BSF website, here.

However, this is not the end for Henry's campaign. We'll be taking the production around the country over the next year - and there are currently still some dates available in early October. If you would like us to come to your local library, school or community space, get in touch!

Thanks to everyone who has helped get this madcap 'rapid retelling' on to its feet, and of course to all our audiences so far who have made the past two weeks a delight.
