The Bureau were out and about once again over the weekend. We would like to thank the people of Burrington, Dolton and some from further afield for their hospitality and participation in the Bureau of Extraordinance Survey. Also a big thank you to the Devon Wildlife Trust, who have helped us enormously with our research, access to various types of land and experts in their field (literally). The show is but one part of spreading the word about Nature Improvement Areas, more of which here.
The next Burn the Curtain show will take place on bikes. If you have 5 minutes to spare, please take a moment to help us with our research by filling in our survey on family cycling and theatre (even if you don’t have a family yet!). Many thanks!
After a very swift turn over from Pinner to Greenway, we finished our stint there last Sunday. Thank you Greenway for letting us run co-ordinated mayhem through their beautiful grounds. Made us feel very welcome.
A big thanks also to the Paignton Community and Sports College Year 12 BTEC Acting students, who provided pre-show entertainment for the audience, stewarding and aiding the show’s movement from one space to another. All this in some very hot conditions! All the best for the future.
Onwards now to Exeter.
Burn the Curtain would like to thank the people of Pinner for making us feel very welcome. It was a great week, with enjoyable performances and workshops in West Lodge Primary School – some truly inspired inventions!
Many thanks to West House Trust and the Village Hall for pre-show workshop space. Thank you The Heath Robinson Trust for their support and St Helen’s School and Harrow Arts Centre volunteers for their stewarding of the show – in all weathers!
All the best

Hello everybody and welcome to our new blog site.
Over the coming months we hope to share with you progress of our upcoming show this summer – The Adventures of Uncle Lubin. The pace is picking up. We’ve completed our residencies at Beaford Arts Centre, workshops with our school partners across Devon have started and construction of the Bag Bird and Dragon Fish puppets begins very soon.
We will be performing in three locations – Pinner Memorial Park, Greenways House and Rougemont Gardens. The tour dates will be up soon!
