Recorded at the Robin Hood Theatre, Averham
For as far back as they can remember, the famous Cambridge Footlights Revue Club has paid an annual visit to the tiny Robin Hood Theatre near the village of Averham, not far from Newark. The theatre sells out every night for a week as far-flung Notts people motor in to watch the Footlights perform the material from which sketches and songs are selected soon after to be presented at their own show on the Edinburgh Fringe. For the Footlights it is a working holiday. Their spirits are light and anything that goes wrong tends to be incorporated in the show. Since the cast, who write all their own sketches, music, and lyrics, live in a loft above the theatre, new ideas can be tried out within minutes.
