A Midsummer Night’s Dream in the Open Air

    Wednesday 1 – Saturday 4th July 7.30 pm    

Our good friends the St Michael’s Players from our neighbouring church in Elmwood Road; are staging a magnificent Woodstock-inspired, production of Shakespeare’s famous comedy of love. For four evenings in July, our beautiful vicarage garden will be transformed into a festival of fun, music and magic that takes us back to the heady, hippy hazy days of the 1960’s. This will be the most lavish and ambitious production in the Players’ history: do join us in what promises to be the biggest trip of the summer!

 This magical and often hilarious tale of star-crossed lovers and mischievous spirits, tiffs, and trickery will appeal to all the family. So get your tickets before they disappear, grab some cushions and rug, and those tie-dyed t-shirts, and look forward to an evening under the stars in a wonderful, technicoloured parallel universe; where nothing is quite as it seems!

 Seating is all open-air, on the grass, and on a first-come, first-served basis. There will be some, limited traditional seating which can be reserved - please see website for details. There will be a bar serving food and drink – all proceeds from this go to the St Paul’s Church fund! Doors and the bar open on Wednesday and Thursday at 7 pm; then on Friday and Saturday they will open at 6.30 pm and there will be a BBQ available as well as a bar!

 Tickets are on sale now via the website. www.stmichaelsplayers.weebly.com
