Young Arden alumnus, Tom Burke, was on our TV screens this evening playing Cormoran Strike in the BBC adaptation of Robert Galbraith’s (aka JK Rowling) detective story, Strike – The Cuckoo’s Calling.
The next two episodes will air over the course of the next week and will be available on BBC iPlayer.
We’re delighted to see Tom’s career going from strength to strength and take a teeny bit of pride in seeing him put in another compelling performance.

At the AGM last night Mary Caryer retired as Chair of the Committee after 11 years in the post (this time around). Her association with the Arden goes back to the days of the fundraising effort to build the original theatre back in the 70s and early 80s (she’ll never forgive me for posting this publicity shot from ‘back in the day’).
Mary will continue to be seen at the theatre, but we hope she enjoys a well earned break from her duties at the helm.
Thank you for all your hard work Mary, don’t be a stranger!
I’ve been threatening to retire from the Arden chair for some time, and now I’ve finally done it. My thanks to you all for being so supportive over the past eleven years – and my very best wishes to the new management team.
I really was touched by the flowers, chocs and wine. Thanks and thanks again.
