Posh party invites hit the National

I took the party invites to the National today.

Management will get their invites on their desks first thing Monday morning as they have all gone in the internal mail as of today (when I say management I am talking about everyone who is not front of house and "on the shop floor" as it were).

However, I personally gave out a lot of invites to the regular staff who I see at the National every day when I am there.

The cafe staff are coming to the party - come on down!
The bar staff are coming to the party - come on down!
The Mezzanine restaurant is coming to the party - come on down!
NT security are coming to the party - come on down!
The Box Office are coming to the party - come on down!

The bookshop staff however did not seem that impressed! - Oh well, you can't please everyone all of the time!

I was at the stage door and managed to give the invites to the two child actors in Frankenstein (Haydon Downing and William Nye) both of whom seemed over the moon with their party invitations! (in fact I initially gave the invites to their parents/minders but they were both quite insistent that they wanted an invite themselves!), Daniel Millar (Felix de Lacey) and Mark Armstrong (Rab). I also randomly gave an invite to Hamlet's uncle as I really liked him in the production and I think he is the most amazing actor. I also gave the invites out to Cumberbatchfans who I knew at the stage door.

Mr Cumberbatch was not at the stage door today so I will have to keep trying until I catch him.

In answer to all those people who said otherwise, staff at the National thought the invite looked stunning and were impressed. The National's branding is leading edge so they know what they are talking about! I had wanted the invites to look professional so they would be good enough for staff at the National theatre. Mission accomplished!

I have no idea - and nor will I until the door close at 8pm on closing night!

Carnival - bring it on!

To be honest, the National have 3-4 floors of building so we won't run out of space.

I was joking with the cafe staff that it was not going to be the "quiet area" on the day that we were in town!

Excited is not the word - now my party invites are out and about and going down a storm I am well up for this!

This I'm excited about!! After reading so much about the National Theatre I'd definitely love to be able to interact with them and ask them about their work there!! :D
