Jennie Lee and Nye Wishing I could clone those Celtic Warriors on today of all days!
Funny, I went there in my early 20s, so naturally I skipped the history and went to the bars... which were really fun. I was there for NYE 2001, and I have no idea why.
At least 10,000 people for starters.
Would love to know that stat! Especially proud of #grav and @Nye_and_Jennie
I’ve been very lucky over the last few years. Working with great Welsh theatre companies like @TorchTheatre @theatrnanog and @BlackRATProds has been a real pleasure. Long may it continue!
I tell you what would be an interesting stat. How many people you will have played to in Wales when you tot up the @Nye_and_Jennie tour attendance and the Grav tour attendance when done. There must be some sort of record for a performer there.
Because these buildings were paid for by the working class who were struggling to buy food. Miners would pay subscriptions to build these venues. And those area’s audiences now crave work like Nye and Jennie as we saw.
Rhiannon did you not see Nye and Jennie or Cardiff Boy, or Thick as Thieves which was co-produced with @ClwydTweets and @CleanBrk and toured prisons? Theatres in England may be middle class enclaves but it’s not the case in Wales.
Last time we were in @Brycheiniog together was cutting Nye and Jennie’s anniversary cake...it was so exciting to sit in the audience and watch @BaleGJ’s #Gravel2019 @TorchTheatre what a show! I didn’t want it to end! Blown away! DIOLCH Xpic.twitter.com/4TpKQJwrm2
"So the independent lady of the Independent Labour Party..." @Nye_and_Jennie @geinorstyles @LouiseCollins81 @BaleGJ
Yep; and with the Churchill debate over the past few weeks...
Many many lines from @Nye_and_Jennie are reverberating today @meredyddbarker @LouiseCollins81 @BaleGJ
Well said - well said - I am so disgusted with the parachuted Blairites I want them out - R.I.P Paul with the greats - Clem - Nye and Jennie - Keir -Tony - Bessie - Barbara-to name a few. Time to vote real Labour Mp's once more to walk with @jeremycorbyn and party. pic.twitter.com/JfpcWiuzcy
Go, see next Friday @RWCMD @geinorstyles @Nye_and_Jennie
And it was Jennie Lee (Nye Bevan’s wife) who steered The OU through. That’s what I call a power couple.
BBC Icons of 20thC .. why does this programme include Gertrude Bell and ignore Lawrence of Arabia, ignore Cptn RF Scott and include Shakleton, include Bowie Warhol Monroe and ignore Presley Sinatra; why does it include Thatcher and ignore Nye Bevin/Jennie Lee, and DNA scientsts?
I resolved to not make a NYE resolution.
Let’s just say I’m crushing the game, too - 30 days in and I’m as deeply committed as I was when I made it.
