Museum Volunteer Caroline Lanyon is part of a Sadler’s Wells success story….

Currently sold out is Sadler’s Wells’ production of Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella.

The story began for us back in December when our own Caroline Lanyon (NADFAS and museum Volunteer) sent this exciting email:

I’m afraid I can’t come in to the Museum this afternoon, or on the 12th Dec, owing to commercial work. Having taken on a commission to make a balldress for ‘Cinderella’ in Matthew Bourne’s ballet of the same name- it was too successful, and I was asked to make a second one with a very tight deadline to be used when the ballet is filmed by Sky Arts next week!

Debra Craine of the Times wrote in her article “..how gorgeous is our heroine’s white party frock?”

A filmed version of the ballet is available on BBC iPlayer until Thursday evening this week. Catch it if  you can!

Congratulations Caroline! We are very lucky to have you with us.
