Theatre Record

This month we have continued to add listings for the Edinburgh festivals, and we are gearing up to review all that we can during August. We will, as always, produce a separate issue just for the festivals as well as the usual one.

We have made some small changes including moving the side bar with 'Latest News', 'Latest Reviews' and 'Affiliates' down to the bottom of the page now, which makes the main page easier to read.

We will continue to improve the 'What’s On' listings, and are aware there is still more work to do here, including making sure all the press contacts are there.

It’s not been all work and no play. I did manage to see a wonderful production of 'The Sweet Delilah Swim Club' by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten, which was presented by my local drama club here in Weymouth. What a great production. I’m always impressed by the talent as well as the commitment, and of course by going to productions such as this, we can all support the arts and ensure they thrive in our own communities.

Thank you for your continued support as always, and do let us know if you have any suggestions or comments at

This month we're continuing to enter the archive, and it's slow progress. We're getting there one year at a time.

Also, we've tweaked a few things to keep the site running efficiently and smoothly. We'll continue to improve the listings page further too.

I'm pleased to say that Doollee is now on line again and you can click on the link under 'Affiliates' to get there. There will shortly be some changes to the site so that people know that the website is left in tribute to Julian who died in September 2022, in honour of his work. His family have some ideas to develop it in the future but for now, it's lovely to have it available again.

As always, if you have any comments or suggestions please do let me know at

We've made some more improvements to the website this month. On the 'What's On' tab you can now sort by title, theatre and date, which we hope may be very helpful. Edinburgh Festival listings are continuously being added too.

We're working on improving the 'What's On' section further, to make sure that shows don't get listed twice. We'll get that changed soon, as well as making sure the description sections are correct. Thanks to all of you who pointed out these errors - it really helps us to improve.

Outdoor theatre has started again - shame about the weather though. I hope the sun comes out as more of these productions take place all over the country. We'll try and list as many of these as we can.

We're making some headway into adding the backlog to make everything searchable too, which is great.

As always, do let us know if you have any suggestions or comments at
