Hall Barn, Old Beaconsfield 23 June
As in previous years, we plan to go to the Hall Barn estate in Beaconsfield Old Town on FRIDAY, 23RD JUNE to watch The Chiltern Shakespeare Company’s play: ‘Much Ado about Nothing’. They are an excellent amateur group that forms annually, solely to perform a Shakespeare play. The play is performed outdoors, but the audience is under cover (tarpaulin, but fairly cosy). It is a beautiful spot if you’ve never been and we normally have a group picnic beforehand (bring your own food and drink), but this is not obligatory. Alcoholic drinks and hot drinks are available to buy should you wish; you can also pre-order a posh picnic. We usually arrive by about 6.30pm (I may well get there at about 6.00pm-ish to get a good picnic spot). The play starts at 8.00pm. I strongly recommend warm clothes and boots (not sandals as your feet will get cold!). A blanket and a cushion are also a good idea. It’s a fun, delightful evening, even in the rain! The actors get wet, but not the audience.
Tickets are £19.00 (no concessions on a Friday evening). Deadline has passed for ordering, but you may be able to get tickets on the door. Further information: Hilary Cox email
