On Friday 23 November HRH The Earl of Wessex KCVO attended an evening performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream by Northern Ballet Theatre at the New Victoria Theatre, Woking. His wife The Countess of Wessex and a number of family friends accompanied the Earl.  The Earl was welcomed to the theatre by David Nixon, Artistic Director of NBT, Yoko Ichino, NBT Ballet Mistress and David Holder, Theatre Manager. Following the performance, the Earl and His guests went backstage to meet the Company. HRH The Earl of Wessex, KCVO is the Royal Patron of NBT, a position He has held since 2003. His Aunt, HRH The Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowden was previously Royal Patron until her death in 2002. 

Leading Soloist Darren Goldsmith who met and photographed the Earl said, “It adds something special to an evening when the Earl is in the audience. He always cracks a joke when He comes backstage to meet us and you feel He has a genuine interest in the Company. This will be the third time I’ve photographed a visit by the Earl and it’s a pleasure because he is so relaxed and happy to pose for photographs.”
