The Market Place Theatre in Armagh was our base for the summer school.
Full size theatre, studio theatre, coffee, bar food, classrooms.
In a period of warm, dry weather, however, a key feature was the outside. 17 broad steps.
Supermarket sandwiches owners mingled with beneficiaries of cooked lunches.
Early morning take away coffee in the sun, right at the heart of all that was going on. Post evening event stronger drinks, with an almost continental vibe.
Concrete that was more than a route to climb to enlightenment. Wide, welcoming open space, designed for mingling, learning and sharing.
A summer school in Ireland that benefitted from the sun? A remarkable week.
