8 of us went to Blackpool on 1st May as we had been nominated for The Importance of Being Earnest. Over 500 Noda members packed the Hilton banqueting suite and although we didn't win, we had a good time. Some of us also attended the traders displays and AGM as well as a workshop lead by Tony Gibb -chief Executive of NODA HQ.
Bev was extremely thrilled to find out that NODA had nominated her to attend a reception at Buckingham Palace in the presence of The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh next week, in recognition for her work in young people's theatre. This is an amazing honour for both her and Hand in Hand Theatre.
