Settings: the final showdown

Last in my list of settings for Blind-Date Marriage is the theatre mentioned in the final chapters. I used a real theatre that I have performed in myself (that sounds very grand, but it year upon year of dancing competitions when I was a school girl). Back then it was called Lewisham Theatre, but now it's called The Broadway Theatre.

It's a lovely art deco building that looks a little lived in and I thought it was just the right location for the charity show - a not too-posh-local theatre that hosts shows by local dance schools, pantomimes and acts that were big names a couple of decade ago. I can't seem to post any pictures, but follow the link and you'll get an idea.

I saw my first panto (Jack & the Beanstalk) in the old Lewisham theatre!
I'm looking forwarding to catching up on your posts about BDM when I've read the book in the New Year.
Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas & brilliant 2007!
Sue :-)

I always associate pantomimes with Christmas, so this seems the right moment to wish you and your family a very Happy Christmas, Fiona and a fabulous, happy and healthy New Year!!
Love,
Barbara
