At last the website is back!
Thank you for your patience. After three months of technical problems caused firstly by BT (three engineer visits, two local exchange faults and a new telegraph wire later we had our phone line back!) and then by the failure of Windows 10 to work with the software I'd used to create the old website we now have a brand new one which is much more versatile. I hope you like it.
You'll see that now we have a location map and a blog where I can keep you up to date with news and post any interesting information you pass on to me.
For this I am immensely grateful to a friend who created the excellent website for our conservation group Friends of Bramcote Ridge and has spent many hours and emails helping me from near Carlisle where he now works and lives,
We do, by the way, have a Nottingham Shakespeare Society Facebook page which has a link to the website. If you're on Facebook I'd love you to look at it and like it.
We've had a really good start to the season with three very interesting and enjoyable talks and a lively reading of 'Troilus and Cressida' which Anthony ably organised and directed despite being ill. Now we're looking forward to reading 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' and hearing Sarah Grandage's talk about it. And I need to start preparing an edited version of 'Women Beware Women' and persuading you to read for me!
Please remember the Book Sale on Tuesday, November 8th.

Well, so much for my good intentions! I really did mean to add to this page at regular intervals during the season but one way and another I just didn't get around to it. I can only apologise and say I will try to do better in future.
The new programme for 2017-2018 is now on our Events page. It promises to be another entertaining and enlightening season and Anthony has again found us exciting speakers, some of them familiar friends and some of them new to us. I'm certainly looking forward to it and I hope you will too.
It always seems a long time between the end of our season in May and the beginning of the new one in September. That's why the idea of having two informal meetings during the summer first arose. Sadly, support for the evening get-together where we brought readings to share faded away after a few years and it became too expensive to hire a room for just a few of us. The other meeting, however, where we just gather for lunch and a chat at The Mechanics still takes place as most of you know; if you are missing talking to other members do come along if you can on Monday, August 7th from 12.00 noon.
Enjoy the rest of the summer.
