The Voyage was cancelled due to inclement weather on Thursday when I went down to check it out, but it went ahead last night, with lots of people saying good things about it afterwards. You’ve got a couple more chances to check it out.
If you want a flavour of what to expect, then Martin Pickard’s has a load of lovely photos from the rehearsals.
A side note: I saw a complaint on Twitter about The Voyage not being very well advertised (from someone who heard about it, went along and enjoyed it). I wasn’t there but I’ve heard crowd estimates of between 3,000-4,500 people, which sounds pretty good for something starting at 10pm on a less-than-balmy evening. This pic certainly makes Victoria Sq look pretty full.
I’m not dismissing the comment out of hand though. I’ve heard quite a lot about The Voyage over the past few months, but then I’m plugged into pretty much every possible source for this kind of news. I wonder if the problem is that we just haven’t got enough ways to get the news out around Birmingham at the moment.
