Quoting Claire above:- ” None of this has anything to do with buildings – it is a question of management.”
Cindy Gray directed Other Men’s Flowers which ran from 7.30 to 8.45 this Thursday 7th October. A week before she went into the Polo Bar and told them that there was an audience of about 70 and a cast of about 12. She warned the Bar that a fair number of those people would come to the Polo Bar after the show wanting something to eat as the Palm Court Bar does not serve food.
It seems the message was not passed on.
The kitchen serving the Polo Bar shuts at 9.00pm. WE had anticipated a problem and we ordered our food at 7.15. Most, if not all, of the people who tried to order food after the show were told it was too late.
I have just been told by Sebastian that our kitchens are now heavily reliant on agency staff. On the 7th October was there no member of ‘management’ with the authority to keep the kitchen working for another half hour, or so, to take money from hungry members? Certainly Vincent seemed not to be able to as he ended off giving out tumblers of chips to pacify people.
