Tell Me On A Sunday opened at the Theatre Royal on Valentine’s Day, telling the story of a young English girl looking for love in New York. To mark the occasion, we asked the public to share their romantic stories with us.
After receiving over 125 entries, the writers of the top five stories won tickets for the show, with one overall winner receiving tickets and a meal for two in _the mezz, _the Theatre Royal restaurant.
The winning entry came from Jeanette Eames, who wrote:
“My husband’s and I most romantic moment happened a couple of years ago driving along the Crediton Road, when Eddie Cochran came on the radio singing C’mon Everybody, when I said to Alan “oh, I could just dance to this”. Before I knew what was happening my husband had pulled the car over into a lay-by, he turned the volume up and pulled me out of the car so we could dance to it. It was a beautiful summer evening and one of my happiest memories, jiving to Eddie Cochran in a lay-by.
“I know this romantic moment is not grand by some people’s standards, but it’s special to me and will always make me smile.”
Other stories ranged from trips to Paris and flowers and chocolates, to a meal in the tree tops and a balloon with a cuddly gorilla in it!
Tell Me On A Sunday, starring Claire Sweeney, runs until Saturday 19 February. For further information and to book tickets, contact the box office on 01752 230447.
