• New musical about the Dorset village of Tyneham

    Many people will know about the Dorset village of Tyneham, which was commandeered by the Armed Forces during the second world war with the promise that it would one day be returned to the villagers who gave up their homes. It was never returned, and access to the village is still restricted, although it is possible to visit it at set times.

    Jordan Clarke has written a musical, Tyneham – No Small Sacrifice, which will be performed in Weymouth (a coastal town close to Tyneham itself) at the end of October.

    Please see the show’s website for more details: www.tynehamthemusical.com


  • The NMN website

    Here’s the place where you can keep up to date with the progress we have made with restoring the site after the nasty hacking attack during the summer.

    1st October – finished removing all the hacked files and completed checking for hacked code.

    Performed a clean install of WordPress, using the default “Twenty-thirteen” theme to provide a holding page to replace the hacker’s message.

    2nd October – installed a new theme and header image.

    Added  “Contact Us” page with functionality to submit a form, together with “captcha” security to prevent automatic submissions.

    Started to re-instate a menu structure and populated the list of musicals and network list using an archive from August 2012.

    5th October – added a Twitter feed and a theatre news feed from The Guardian.

    7th October – restored many (but not all) of the pages with details of musicals.

    8th October – most of the musicals database is now restored.

    10th October – added a “Media Samples” page and a “Subscribe” page to enable signing up for our newsletter.
