Coombe Trenchard Home and Garden Event

At Coombe Trenchard, Caroline and Frances were hard at work drumming up interest in Red Spider’s latest collaboration with The Common Players and Exeter Northcott Theatre.

Jerusalem will be at Coombe Trenchard on the 21st of June, and we’d love to have you join us.

Red Spider & Northcott Theatre: Jerusalem 27th May – 28th June 2014


f you didn’t you will now know that we (RSC) are hosting Jerusalem at Coombe Trenchard on June 21st. I am writing to ask for your help as active Spiders.


We need between 10 and 12 persons to help with marshalling. This will cover, car parking, seating control, tickets and general bodies to help with the audience. Then making sure the site is clear at the end. There are complimentary tickets for all those helping (not that we would have expected you to pay anyway).

We intend to open the gates @ 5pm and hopefully the site will be cleared by midnight if not before. The timing of the play is not sure yet, but “curtain up” is 8 pm.

We have stalls, food, bar and a few extras, so help beforehand will be much appreciated. It will be a long day!

Please can you register with me ASAP if you are willing to help (for all or part of the time) and let me know if any of you are a registered first aider as we could do with another person.


Many thanks in anticipation

Red Spider Christmas Production 6th & 7th December 2013

From the chairman…

Dear fellow thespians and spiders. We are presenting a winter offering this year. It will take place over two evenings, 6th and 7th December, 7:30pm at Lewdown Victory Hall. For your £8 (£5 children) you will have an entertaining evening with a mince pie and mulled wine.

This is something slightly different. It is aims to be relaxed, amusing and lighthearted, written by members of the players and we are pleased to welcome some younger cast members. It is not a pantomime although there may be elements one recognises, so we hope to raise spirits and get everyone in the mood for the festive season.

We look forward to welcoming you to a bit of Lewdown past!

So please let me have your replies before then. I will come asking if I think you’re hiding your light under a bushel!! Suzi Clayton.
