its been quite a while since the last update was sent (June 2013!) Things have gone from strength to strength at Matthews Yard, the studio has been a roaring success with sell out performances for Mark Thomas, Richard Herring, Susan Calman and a number of other comedians. We have hosted plays from Dippermouth Theatre, Breakfast Cat Theatre, Matthews Yard Theatre Company and Zoom! Arts Youth Project on a regular basis, and will continue to do so.
The studio is fully functioning but in need of more investment to make it a space to be proud of. We fell short of funds to complete the supporters wall - but are planning on completing this by the end of March 2014 (I am meeting a designer tonight to begin getting it all mapped out).
Remember - you still have a few days to claim any rewards. Thanks again for all your support, we look forward to seeing you again soon.
