Interlude in the Close

You may have remembered I previously mentioned Interlude in the Close and was rather excited about everything it had to offer. Well it’s nearly here and I cannot wait!! So to refresh your memory about what’s on offer here is a quick run down of just some of the shows you’ll be able to catch in the Big Top situated in Cathedral Close this summer.
