Well, for the third year in a row, COVID left its mark on Nine Lessons. This time round, 12 hours before the shows kicked off, our two producers got knocked out by positive tests and so it was left the rest of the amazing Shambles crew (in particular Jo Gostling) and Kings Place team to hold down the fort.
Add in bad weather and train strikes and at times it felt remarkable their were shows at all. But shows there were. Three brilliant ones featuring marshmallows being accelerated at force, the world’s greatest magician, Peter Cushing’s face, the physics of giraffes and a whole lot more.
And of course we raised a bunch for our charities of the year, Turn2Us and Together For Short Lives.
