It’s not just love that’s in the air

It’s been a week of all things love…along with more meetings and nights out, oh and not forgetting the drugs bust with the armed police.

Meetings, meetings and more meetings

Meetings galore this past week. There was a suggestion a while back that we should have one day a week when there are no meetings, we put a ‘do not disturb’ sign on the door and rope in one of the volunteers to be our gate-keeper to steer the random visitors elsewhere.

No-show snow & flying solo

I well remember 8 March 2018, I was the last one to leave the theatre not long after the snowfall started. It was the day I ended up abandoning my car and trudging home knee deep in the white stuff.

The Lyme Lunge, a long walk home & hopefully my car is fixed

It’s been a Bassett’s sort of week as we moved from one year to the next.

Uni-sex loos, pop-up tents & networking

What do you think of uni-sex loos? I’ve touched on this topic before, always with a pair of Marigolds on, personally I don’t like them. However, if the Pilot Boat had them, then there would have been no need for an apology to the town clerk. More about that later.

Snow fall, our environmental policy and I finally get my wheels

Winter proper arrived in Dorset this week; there were reports of snow fall in Toller Porcorum (I saw the video evidence) and the following day in Dorchester. I wonder how many people rushed to the bookies to place a bet for a white Christmas…is that still a thing or do gamblers do it all online now?

Hyperthermia, counting sheep and a non-rolling roller-ball eye de-puffer from M&S

You’ve been wondering haven’t you? Go on, you were just a little bit curious about this week’s embargo given the previous week was the huge announcement about Sir Ian McKellen coming to the Marine. Anyway, remember that hunch I had, the one about the weather?

Embargoes, Danny Boyle’s Pages of the Sea and Prosecco Friday

The embargo was finally lifted this week. There were only 3 of us who knew but now the secret is out.

The clocks go back so it’s time to think about Christmas & my new car

Winter made a grand entrance this week; it wasn’t just the clocks going back an hour to Greenwich Mean Time but right on cue we had some incredibly cold nights resulting in icy windscreens the following morning. Of course I didn’t have to worry about that because I no longer have a car

Big announcements, beach takeover and soggy salty car seats.

We had not one but two big announcements this week. Our first one was to cut the cost of our Box Office booking fee. The other big event was opening the theatre’s own Box Office on Wednesday morning so people could buy tickets from us with NO BOOKING FEE AT ALL!
