Our first performances commenced today. It was great to see so many school children at Appleby Castle to see Much Ado About Nothing. Many of the children had taken part in the Actor’s Workshop earlier in the morning. Hopefully we will have fired a lifelong interest in History, Literature and Drama!

If you are anywhere near Cumbria please come see the shows and this fabulous Castle. Final shows at Appleby Castle are on Monday 6th July.

After weeks rehearsing in Bristol, our brilliant Cast are eager to head North and our opening shows in Cumbria. The stunning Appleby Castle awaits and 10 performances over 5 days. We have a great UK tour ahead with shows at The Bristol Shakespeare Festival, Sterts Theatre in Cornwall, Wyndcliffe Sculpture Gardens near Chepstow, Kentwell Hall in Suffolk, the Brewhouse Theatre in Taunton (our only indoor shows) and the magnificent Arundel Castle in West Sussex.

We hope you come to see us. Bring friends and a picnic for a really memorable evening. There really is nothing like open-air theatre!
