Val and Lindsay Kemp ran a Summer workshop together in Todi, Italy. This happened because a dear friend of both of them brought them together for this work. His name is John Spradbery and he worked as Lindsay's Production Manager for many years, touring the world with Lindsay. Prior to this Val, John and Lindsay met in Edinburgh at the beginning of the 1970s and worked in the same building there together.
