Greetings to all Playbackers!

YOU ARE INVITED TO THE 6TH UK & IRELAND PLAYBACK THEATRE GATHERING 2013 - PLAYBACK THEATRE IN THE FENS. YOU ARE WELCOME, WHEREVER YOU ARE FROM!

Contact Brian Tasker via email: briantasker@hotmail.com

The 6th UK & Ireland Playback Theatre Gathering will take place from October 31st to November 3rd 2013 at the Claret Centre, The Towers, Buckden, St Neots, Cambridgeshire. In keeping with the time of year, our theme will be STORIES OF LIGHT AND SHADOW. This was partly inspired by the recent European Playback Theatre Festival on the theme of the Four Elements and it feels like a natural continuation to extend that connection to the liminal world and to our ancestors. Of course, the Gathering will be well-grounded with a variety of workshops as well as performances celebrating our stories of both light and shadow.

There are a maximum of 40 places and we are 25% full already. If you would like to come, I need a deposit of £50 or more if you can afford it to confirm your place.

This will be the fourth Gathering that I've organised and these are always popular events and always sell out, so don't be disappointed - book now! Thank you for your support.

It's important to make these events as accessible as possible and the cost of the Gathering will be just £165 sharing a twin room. This event is fully catered and includes all meals from Thursday dinner to Sunday lunch. The cost includes a £30 admin fee which is waived if you offer a workshop. Anything left over after expenses goes to support the development of Playback Theatre through the International Playback Theatre Network.

There are two ways to pay, by bank transfer which is preferred or by cheque (only if drawn on a UK bank). Please contact me if you are coming from outside the UK and you need a different payment method.

The details for paying by bank transfer are in Sterling only:

Account name: International Playback Theatre Network
A/c number: 10023914 Sort Code: 20-96-55
Reason: 'Gathering'.

If you pay by transfer, please email to say that you have done so - thanks.

If you want to send your cheque, made payable to International Playback Theatre Network, email me for the address to send it to - thanks.

Thank you for supporting this event, I'm already excited by it and I'm pleased to serve Playback Theatre this way by organising and the team that will support me is already beginning to emerge.

Our Gatherings are always enjoyable and provide a wonderful opportunity to get together with other Playbackers, celebrate our love of Playback Theatre and share our stories as a community!

I look forward to hearing from you soon. Please forward this email around your networks – thanks
