I was up at Beauvale Priory again today, as I am reprising my role of Thomas Leyghton, one of the Carthusian monks that lived there 500 years ago for the third time. It is not a play this time, but I, and another 'monk' will be escorting visitors around the priory and telling them what life was like for these silent order of monks. I met Geoff, who is playing Prior Woodcock, and we went through the script a few times, just to see what it is going to be like and the route that we will be going. Several other people will be giving tours too, playing different characters of course. It is all part of the Eastwood Festival and will be happening for one day only on July 31.
