Tower Bridge's priority is helping the Tower Theatre Company, who present a Shakespeare play annually in the Bois de Boulogne open-air Théatre - in 2016, this will be Romeo and Juliet, directed by Penny Tuerk, from 7th to 12th June.

Each year a talk about the play is arranged for Tower Bridge members, they attend their choice of performance as the Company's guests, can meet the Tower Theatre Company cast and crew and buy tickets for TTC's shows in London and Paris at concessionary prices.

Opéra de Baugé

Opéra de Baugé présents a summer festival of grand opéra in the Centre Culturel of Baugé-en-Anjou (49150).

During its 14th season, in 2016, it presented Le Couronnement de Popée (Monteverdi), Albert Herring (Britten) and La Périchole (Offenbach).

A notable feature of an evening at Opéra de Baugé is the 90 minute dining/picnic interval medelled on Glyndebourne.

Many of the soloïst are the stars of tomorrow, and this claim is proven by the careers of many past soloïsts. There is a full orchestra.

What Larks is an English-speaking theatre company based in Provence.

Our hope is that everyone - prospective members and future talent - will adhere to Joe Gargery's tenet in Great Expectations when famously he predicted good times ahead with, "What Larks, we'll have, Pip." So keep us in mind and support our activities as an audience – tell us what you’d like to see, where and when... Or tell us if you must be interested in using or developing your talents, be they behind the scenes, or the stage or crating from a word processor...sets; costumes; lighting; sound and visual mixing and editing; writing and performing.
