An Ely design company has won a top award for its programme for Shakespearean classic, The Tempest.
Dynamic Creative, which is based on Lynn Road, won the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) East award for Best Deluxe Programme for their glossy programme which accompanied Huntingdon theatre company Shakespeare at The George’s production.
NODA supports 2,500 amateur dramatic societies throughout the UK and nominates productions across all its regions.
Rob Barton, owner of Dynamic Creative said: “The professionalism of the company needed to be reflected in its marketing material.
“Playing the part of Sebastian gave me a unique understanding of the play and the messages behind it and meant that I could reflect the vision of its director.
