Quick update

After many months of discussion it was nice to be able to finally speak of our new sponsor, Investec Wealth & Investment. It is certainly a tough time for the arts so we can take some comfort in the fact that companies who see the value of what we do to their own business are still out there. Here is to a successful partnership. The next two years will be challenging and exciting in equal measure as we build a plan for OHP's future structure. I will of course keep you all informed!

The roof lifts off the ground today so having a sunny, still day is a bonus. Once up, the hard work to build the rest of the theatre begins in earnest and Kasete, our operations manager has much to do. The box office is extremely busy processing Friends bookings and it won't be too long before rehearsals begin.

We are all at Christies next week for a very special event to introduce the company to new supporters and friends - about two hundred of them. We have some lovely entertainment laid on and the guest list is impressive indeed, so it is an important evening for us with everybody front and centre for the cause.

On the home front, Fiora is being toilet trained. For parents, no further explanation is necessary.
