Announcement: 2017 plans revealed

We’re excited to tell you that we will be continuing to tour Idle Women next year with a very special tour. We plan to recreate the journey the trainees made (London, Birmingham, Coventry, London) 75 years after Eily (Kit) Gayford started the scheme by training with a working boat couple, the Sibleys. Planning is still in the very early stages but we hope to have most of the key things in place in time to launch the project at our final show of 2016 at the Rosemary Branch theatre on November 29th.
