This was my second visit on the historic day. I had arrived shortly after 9.30am to collect my new swipe card (in time for my first theatre tours on Friday) and that done I just enjoyed mingling, listening to the buzz of general excitement and admiring the commitment and enthusiasm of all RSC colleagues on duty.

 Needless to say, I made a purchase from our marvellous new shop (which deserves a special blog of its own) and was then joined by my wife for coffee in the Riverside Cafe . The coffee was superb and (following a truly splendid dinner in the Rooftop Restaurant last Friday) confirmed that the RST provides catering par excellence. Glenda (my wife) thoroughly enjoyed going around the building and whilst appreciating everything that is new, was very pleased to be able to enter the Swan Reading Room once more.
