70/30 Split Update
70/30 Split have been super busy since our summer mini tour this was our first experience of a condensed tour and we really got a sense of what it feels like to complete a national tour. Our experiences at each venue were completely different, at Touch Wood we were able to gather feedback from the audience and venue, (as well as Wendy Houston and Gary Clarke in the pub afterwards!) at Heads Up! we got a sense of what it is like to perform to a Edinburgh Fringe crowd and it was really great to finish up at Beacons Festival where we had so much fun and got to watch some very special performances over the whole weekend in The Impossible Lecture Tent.
We then got to spend a very interesting residency week at Winchester University that was the result of winning the FLINTsparks prize earlier in the year. It was an extremely intense process and we had never worked in that way before. I would really like to thank Two Destination Language for having us and spending a great day in the studio with them.
After that we were in London for Donald Hutera’s GOlive festival at the Giant Olive Theatre in Kentish Town. We had such a great time and had some fantastic audience response one attendee even told me “I had more fun tonight than the last 5 seasons at Sadlers!” Which is quite an honor, we were also lucky enough to be picked out as on of the festival highlights and had our picture in TimeOut you can see the article here.
Lastly we just performed at the West Yorkshire Playhouse for Leeds Light Night which is always an experience!! Our next performance date will be on the 19th October and unusually it will be in our hometown of York!! It is going to be a very special and amazing night ticket booking can be found here.
