Spotted in #Notts on Friday - the ORIGINAL helicopter which dropped the final slice of bread to defeat the wasps in the 1972 #JamSandwich incident. Our show features a marginally smaller version... You can see it this afternoon in #Clifton!

The #JamSandwich wasps weren't the only insects in #London last weekend - visited #TheHive @kewgardens too. Stunning work from @WButtress #bees🐝

It's a lovely day at Polka Theatre, Wimbledon today! A packed audience this morning and more schools coming this afternoon to see the giant #JamSandwich . Enjoying the sun between shows with this guy!

We've chosen this wonderful image, taken in 1967 by a chiropractor called Dr. Page, to represent our #emergingperspectives project, A Fortunate Man. 50 years ago, the late John Berger documented the life of an English Doctor with the help of photographer Jean Mohr. We now want to take inspiration from Berger to create our own modern day theatre response, exploring the NHS today. Apply by 3 March to be involved!
