Huge congratulations also to Es Devlin for her appointment as Designer for the Olympic Closing Ceremony. We are so excited!

Members of the Motley Alumni Reps Group met with the Trustees of Motley Theatre Design Course in February. Our Chairman John Simpson has since emailed us to say that Motley Alumni can tell the alumni that “we are working towards a new Chapter in the life of Motley”. We hope to be able to tell you more very soon.
