Funchal, on the island of Madeira, has more than enough drinking fountains for a dedicated tourist trail. If we had to pick one that really stands out for twinning, it would have to be this one which is situated up on the hill just north of the casino. There is also a very circuituous and tenuous link back to the Whitley Pump.
StrikeUp theatre will be running acting courses at the Rising Sun Arts Centre starting on Thursday 9 January and running until 26 March. The morning course will cover ‘the actor and power’ and ‘the actor and pace’ and the evening course ‘the actor and truth’ and ‘the actor and the audience’.
Thank you to all our readers and regular and occasional contributors for making it a wonderful year on Katesgrove Hill. We hope that you continue to enjoy reading or contributing to the Whitley Pump in 2020.
