Mont le Grand - Opulent Heavitree!
This was the sixth Squilometre project nominated and voted for by you, the Heavitree Community, and we'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support, nominations and votes. We're thrilled to say that we were inundated with requests to see this show and our professional performers played to three packed audiences on the evening of Sunday 25th November 2018.
"How good did it feel to share this house tonight? How did it feel to share with us the stories of laughter and companionship? For a moment you forgot. For a moment so did I. You remembered the joy of this house and I forgot the pain. And, thanks to these kind people, and their willingness to share the stories of this place, a little of each of us will endure. "
