Sheffield Crucible’s 40th birthday party

I haven’t updated the blog recently — a sign, as ever, that I’m quite busy. I’ve been at several parties recently as a photographer for The Stage – so much so that, once again, this week’s back page ‘Scene Around’ section exclusively uses my photos.

The first party of the batch was a lunchtime celebration marking the Sheffield Crucible’s 40th anniversary. The actual anniversary is next month and will be marked by events at the Crucible itself, but last week artistic director Daniel Evans and the Crucible team came down to the Delfont Room in the Prince of Wales Theatre to celebrate with their London-based friends.
