FREE SETS GIVEAWAY: Sunday 23rd November - 9am till 1pm HRDS are sending all of their sets from past shows off to heaven (aka. off to the tip). Before we do this we wanted to offer it all to any other theatre companies who may find them useful. From shows like The Twists (giant monkey cage), Beauty and the Beast (village flats, castle entrance), Bugsy Malone (1940's art deco arch ways, splurge gun crates) and much more. We also have a number of large trucks, chairs, tables, beds, furnishings and other random bits and pieces large and small. Everything has been built and constructed by a professional builder and everything is very sturdy and in great condition. We would even be happy to give these items away to any students or their families from HRDS as a momento (or an extremely excessive souvenir). If your interested please give me a call on 0416 077 903. VENUE: Kennards Self Storage 51 Pendlebury Rd, Cardiff
