The show must go on: Cover Kinks

Sunny history was made yesterday when, for the first time, an entire cover band of Kinks assembled for a matinée performance! Thanks to the World Cup 66 Live event clashing with a scheduled show, rather than cancel or postpone the decision was taken that the show must go on – and why not? Our brilliant […]

On The Night: Second Chances

Following great success in April, on Sunday Falling Pennies ran their second ‘On The Night‘ event at the Arcola Theatre. The aim of the event is to give writers a chance to have their work performed, so they can see how an audience responds to it and what they need to work on. It’s a […]

End of Team B week

So, this has been Team B week! Though for we Afternooners, pretty much every week is Team B week. Did I mention before that we love them? If you’ve been following all of our platforms, I hope you’ve enjoyed meeting our heroes and learning more about them. If you’ve only just seen this now… Well, […]

In place of an actual advent calendar this year, I decided it would be fun to look through my memories of Sunny Afternoon so far and pick out some highlights to create a virtual advent calendar! Yes, my picture is terrible (I only had Paint to my disposal, OK?) but you get the idea. So […]

The show must go on: part 3

One of the many plus points of going to see a show so many times is the opportunity to see a variety of actors in the same roles, as the principal cast either unfortunately get ill/injured, or (more happily for them) take a well-earned holiday. Having now seen Sunny Afternoon 111 times, I’ve managed to […]

All my friends would ask me…

Telling someone you’ve seen a show on multiple occasions can provoke a variety of responses: shock, awe, horror, curiosity… I’ve seen these reaction on a regular basis over the past few months as I’ve totted up my trips to one Sunny Afternoon. Most often this is during the interval, so I end up freaking people […]
