Many thanks to all of our lovely helpers at our fundraising stand at the Brixham Pirate Festival - we raised invaluable funds for our productions :) Also many thanks to Judi for allowing us to use the space, and to the local Brixham Police, and festival security, for coming along and volunteering to be in our stocks :)
A new "take" on showteam shows was trialled on Thursday. Some years back we had our Three Musketeers showteam, which is still something which can be resurrected. But in the meantime through a series of events - an afternoon of impromptu fight show between Laura and Anth, back in the summer, and then the fact that a number of our performers are Assassins Creed fans, the natural thing happened.
And the Assassins Creed-theme showteam was born, we decided to put together a fight show for the final Brixham Buccaneers Pirate Thursdays. This is a charity, volunteer-run annual series of family friendly events - mainly pirate, but they often want different entertainment, and we work with them a lot.
Lucius, Steve, Ray, Laura and Rich created the final performance. It went so well than we have been asked back for the Pirate Thursdays next summer!
What a fantastic weekend, and many thanks to our team for assisting our fundraising stand at the Brixham Pirate Festival. We had three days of fundraising, and fun. Made lots of great new friends and raised a significant amount towards our fundraising
We should also put out a great shout to the fantastic local police - two of whom went in our stocks, on Saturday afternoon to support our fundraising - for £1, for 5 sponges, people loved soaking the local Police, in the stocks..., It drew rather a large crowd. :)
Later in the weekend, our founder, Laura, had a sponsored dunking in Brixham Harbour (yes among all the diesel and gunk) to raise funds for the team.
Finally, we would love to give a shoutout to the lovely people who won the pirate teddies, in our Name The Teddy competitions
