I am having 200 posh copies of this invite professionally produced. They will be going to staff at the National Theatre, the Home Office, the Department for Communities and Local Government, the Swivel Theatre Company, the Sherlock Holmes Society of London, All Souls, Salsateca, the Metropolitan Walkers, Brunel University, Lambeth Libraries, the Undershaw Preservation Trust, dancy_dreamer, and gozadreams.
THE PARTY IS ON!
The party is open and inclusive - everyone is welcome at the party. You don't need an invite to come to the party - you just turn up!
But I am working in partnership with the National to ensure that we give the best possible service as we can to party attendees. This means that the National and I need to have some idea re numbers coming so that we can cater for you appropriately.
Please RSVP in the comments:
1) Say how many of you are coming
2) Say if you are interested in a Backstage tour - The National have said that they are prepared to lay on extra tours if there is a demand for them
3) Say if you want food before and after the production - The National are planning to only operate their cafes and food facilities for a bank holiday. But again, they have said that they will keep the cafes etc open longer and staff up accordingly if they know that there is a demand for food after the production.
I want as many new people to come to the National as possible to see how awesome it is.
The deadline for responses is 6pm Thursday 21 April.
This post will be cross-posted to mycrofting and cumberbatchfans on Sunday after it has run as an exclusive on The Umbrella Organisation for a couple of days.
I will collate replies across the 3 coms over the Easter weekend and forward them to the National by Tuesday 26 April. I am meeting the National on Wednesday 27 April to finalise all the arrangements and the details.
So come on down and join the party! Let's put Born Slippy by Underworld on the turntable and get this party started!
