Dear followers, the archaeology department at Sheffield is under threat of closure. This department trains many archaeologists in post-medieval and urban archaeology so is relevant to the Rose. If you can please sign and share the petition.

Helen and I were glad to be at yesterday's Zoom AGM. As we said, we really enjoy the webinars - they are very interesting and are a good way to stay in touch with The Rose. We hope they'll continue after lockdown.
Looking forward to GreenMatthews. And to this on a similar theme. https://www.shakespeare.org.uk/visit/whats-on/sweet-music-such-art/ 🎻🎶
Weekly readings of the Complete Works of Shakespeare by a global cast, in the order they were believed to have been written. Created in less than a week in response to the global Covid 19 pandemic.
The Edward Alleyn tour was delightful, interesting and informative. Our guide Linda was enthusiastic, prepared and thoughtful. She showed us ten landmarks of Elisabethan London including the St Giles’ Cripplegate church with Edward Alleyn’s magnificent window and John Milton’s resting place, the locations where the Fortune Theatre and the Red Bull Playhouse once stood, Charter House and St John’s Gate and the Priory Buildings. Take your camera and a London map for full enjoyment of the two hours in between corners and alleys steeped in English Renaissance characters and history. A must for lovers of old theatre at a great price!
Lecture tonight (also Live streamed and available on their website) https://www.facebook.com/events/2079742922353135/
Massive congrats to the cast and crew of A Midsummer's Night Dream! Wonderful show!
