  1. Hello

    I am a student on the English Literature and Community Engagement degree course at Bristol University ( Part-time/BA) and also of Newport University in Scriptwriting ( Part time /MA). I am currently studying Bartholomew Fair and I wonder if you made a DVD recording of any of the August performances in north Wales – sadly I missed seeing any of them. I am happy to pay any costs and it would only be used for study purposes. I will look forward to hearing back from you. Thanks for your help. Winifred Baker. The Old Ship. Llandogo. Wye Valley. Monmouthshire. Wales NP25 4TD 01594 530460

  2. I don’t, but I will send you the director’s email address.
