It feels like I haven't stopped to think let alone sit down and relax this weekend. Friday night we went to Stratford to see the RSC's Morte D'Arthur, which was an experience! First the director Greg Doran came on and apologised for the fact they hadn't had time to do a full rehearsal as it was such a long play (it was on from 7.15pm until 11pm), and things did seem to keep going wrong techinically, and finally 15 minutes from the end Greg came back on and said he was stopping the performance as Sam Troughton who played Arthur had been taken ill. He did look and sound awful - hope it was nothing too serious. Visually the play was stunning, and the effects were so clever, well worth seeing. The language is completely different to Shakespeare, none of the rich poetry, and the characters too are quite 'flat', but it really will be a wonderful production once they iron out the problems.
On Saturday we went to the Great Central Railway's World War II Event which was great fun. Took quite a few photos and the only annoyance of the day was that as the event was spread over four locations, we had to pay £5 to go on the platform at Loughborough Station and another £5 to go into the event at Quorn Station too. A bit steep methinks. It should have been £5 for the event, plus extra if you actually travelled by train.
