Important update regarding our scheduled performance on Friday 1st May
Michael Morpurgo has asked, due to unavoidable personal circumstances, that we re-schedule his planned performance of War Horse Only Remembered on 1st May.
While obviously disappointed at this news and mindful of the inconvenience caused, we are equally delighted that the performance is now re-booked for Saturday 7th November; poignantly this is Remembrance weekend. To say thank you for the support of those who have already purchased tickets for this event and to make the occasion even more memorable, we have also arranged for National Theatre puppeteers, with the magnificent life-size horse ‘Joey’, to co-star on that date.
In the meantime, we wish Michael every good wish for a speedy recovery.
