The silver mousetrap and Meg’s plaque in the St Martin’s foyer, the actual well under a cover at the back of the Sadler’s Well’s Theatre.   All are reminders of the amazing wealth of history to be found in the West End’s grandest old ladies.

BLOG : Matinee Idle: A Lazy Afternoon At The Theatre

By Shanine Salmon
The Bodyguard Tuesday 24 May 2016

I recently went to see King Lear at Theatre Royal Brighton. I live in South London and couldn’t resist a sunny afternoon trip to the south coast. I’d forgotten how much I love a Saturday matinee and if you thought they were just for the elderly then you are very much mistaken.
