The New Theatre had an open day today, £9 each and you could wonder everywhere, back stage, dressing rooms, easily get lost. A complete rabbit warren of rooms and corridors.
Well worth it, always wanted to see how all the scenery gets ‘lowered’ in etc. There were lots of staff on hand to answer questions, especially interesting were the lighting and mixing desks. Yea, I am a geek.
Then finished up across the road in The grapes pub, built in 1820, possibly one of the oldest pubs in Oxford.
And a nice couple of pints of 6X.
Today we visited the BT, or, as was the Post Office tower in London. A bit of history here.
The trip was organised by BT, just had to donate some money to BT’s chosen charity and could have an hour up the tower. The weather was dry, a bit cloudy, but just OK for photo taking.

Afterwards we went to Treasures of Heaven exhibition at The British Museum.
And went to the Busaba Eathai, restaurant just of the Tottenham Court Road for a nice meal, before getting home around 9.00pm.
