Badapple Theatre - ‘The Last Station Keeper’ - Tuesday, 25th October

The station house at Honeypot Holt is under attack and not just from the resident bees!

Venue: Village Hall

Time: 7.30 pm

Tickets: £9.50 adults/£5.00 for under 16s - call Linda on 01423 325179

North Country Theatre Group - ‘The Wish House’ - Wednesday, 30th November

Based on a story by Rudyard Kipling - A sinister story of superstition sacrifice and dirty laundry. Grace Ashcroft might be seen by some as a poor old lady, “a dear old soul”, but the tale she tells of her younger days as a lusty farm girl and the strange sacrifice she made to keep “her” man is by turns hilarious and chilling. (For more information see northcountrytheatre.com/Performances/TheWishHouse).

Venue: Village Hall

Time: 7.30 pm

Tickets: £10.00 adults - call Linda on 01423 325179
