Enticing the the passing locals and visitors to enter and spend money, funds for Acting Up in Rye’s fundraising event

Acting Up in Rye were holding auditions on Thursday August 25, for their next November production, the pantomime Cinderella, and anyone interested will have gone to the Old Scout Hut in The Grove. [If you are interested but could not or did not get there, phone Sarah on 07766 211220. Editor]

Last Saturday August 20 I dropped in at the Acting Up coffee morning  which was held in 11 High Street, in aid of their planned pantomime on November 25 and 26. (Saturday November 26 there will be an afternoon matinee and another performance in the evening). Above are the details for anyone who would like to be part of the fun.

The usual stalls offered books and other interesting items and, of course, there were tempting cakes. I met a lovely woman, June Woolley, on a stall, who once worked at the Pottery, which is now a gated residential development  in Ferry Road overlooking the River Tillingham.

She had lovely small wooden boxes for sale which she had painted. She said that she had worked with the late (sadly) John Izod and that she learnt a lot from him. He worked in the Pottery in Cinque Port Street (which is now partly a shop).

The Brillos, or rather just two of them, played their rock-blues at the gate to entice people to enter.

The Brillos have various performances pencilled in around Rye, one of them being on August 27 at 1pm in the front court of the Kino in Lion Street, as part of the Jazz Festival.  more information: facebook.com/the brillos/pos
