Enroute to Kings Theatre by Janice Lyall

Enroute to Kings Theatre by Janice Lyall

Tucked away in a small side street is a hidden gem - the King's Theatre. Step inside and you cannot fail to be delighted by the venue itself and the performances put on by the Crown Players and other performers. Watercolour painting by Janice Lyall

The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker

Tales of plum fairies, dancing mice, clockwork toys, a magician, the midnight hour and a spectacularly decorated tree. A perfect setting to brighten up the dark December nights. Mixed Media painting by Janice Lyall

King Edward II Effigy

King Edward II Effigy

Thankfully for school children, Shakespeare didn't write a play about King Edward II. Studying the plethora of facts and myths about his troubled life and death and the complex political situation of that time, would be challenging. King Edward II is buried in Gloucester Cathedral and his effigy shows the scars of graffiti through the years. Watercolour painting by Janice Lyall

Neptune's Fountain

Neptune's Fountain

Neptune and his trident has appeared in numerous stories and films. Always portrayed as powerful, to relate to the storms at sea. The fountain above depicts him in the shallower depths alongside white horses. Watercolour painting by Janice Lyall

Knavery at Play

Knavery at Play

I suspect the 'Happy' faced masks were highly sought after by knaves expected to make appropriate jokes on command and to prance around to the continual tinkling of bells. Watercolour painting by Janice Lyall

All the World's a Stage
