Durham, Cragside, Paris

It has been a busy couple of weeks. We gave talks in the Japan Gallery of the Oriental Museum, Durham University, and at Cragside House in Northumbria over the weekend of 18-19 August 2018, and last week there were discussions in Paris regarding events and venues for 2019 and 2020.

It was great to meet people in Durham who had a genuine interest in noh, some completely new to it and others who had seen noh in Japan. Their positive feedback and interest was very much appreciated and we would like to encourage those who spoke to us to keep in contact via the website.

We particularly would like to thank Craig, Rachel and all the staff at Durham and Cragside House for their support over the weekend. Although David and Gina, of course, know the Museum and the area very well, it was the first visit for Jannette, who was especially pleased to be able to visit Durham, the Museum and Cragside House. 

We will report back on Paris in due course, but suffice it to say the meetings were all extremely helpful.
