Sky & Old Vic & Standon, Oh My!

My fingers are cramping under the weight of all this news I’m about to post.


Firstly, we imagine you will have noticed the launch of a little channel called Sky Atlantic last week. Not only did Sky and HBO recruit the legendary Dustin Hoffman to front the ad campaign, they also called in the services of the Heritage Arts Company to help kick off their launch party with a prohibition-themed bang. We’re sure the presence of Steve Buscemi, Stephen Graham and others helped attract some attention too, but a big thank you goes out to everyone involved in the event, the Hospital Club and all our performers.


Secondly, nearly every moment of the IdeasTap / OldVicNewVoices Coming Up Festival, the Creative Directors of which Tim has been chairing, has sold out. Now, there still might be a few ways to get hold of tickets, so keep your eyes on the official website if you want to come along; it’s going to be brilliant.

Third, the Radio SHAC continues its bimble through the nether-regions of time and place. Look out for the final five episodes of the first series between now and the end of March. Catch up with the first episode here.


And finally, today we announced the official theme of Standon Calling 2011 as Gods & Monsters. Get tickets, get there, and come get epic with us. The Obleron awaits.


Phew. Where do we find the time? Talk to us on twitter & facebook if you want to know more.


See you soon!
