Otley Players and the Courthouse made the News Year’s honours list for our work as part of the Open Heritage Day and our short play. Well, at least we were mentioned by them. Looking forward to this year’s theme. The Courthouse think the title is ‘Creativity and Innovation’ (still tbc), Wharfedale Printing comes to mind! https://www.heritageopendays.org.uk/…/new-year-honours…
Don’t miss this great piece in the Wharfedale Observer about ‘Shakespeare’s Lost Christmas Play.’ Otley Players are getting a lot of support from businesses and other community groups in putting on our Christmas play, thank you to everyone who is helping.
