Unravelling the Ribbon

Unravelling the Ribbon tells the funny and touching story of three women as they interact, separate and come together in a moving and frequently hilarious tale of friendship and survival. The play is about relationships and the device the authors use is the journey through breast cancer treatment, but that's not all it's about. The characters are worlds apart, and as the story unfolds we see their indivicual struggles, their isolation and we see their lives weave together.

Ticklets are £11 which includes wine and nibbles, and entry in to a special prize draw. To find out more, or to purchase a ticket please contact Sarah Cherry.

'Bugfest' featuring the 'Wild and Deadly show'

Not all frightening creatures need to be giants, as you will soon find out at Montacute. Coming face to face with all sorts of creepy crawlies (and not so small snakes), your natural reaction would be to keep them at a very long arms length.

However, kids tend to have no fear of such beasties. Between handling sessions we will have two Wild and Deadly shows in the old stables. And best of all, children and adults will learn whilst having scary fun.

Opening times and prices: 12pm-1pm and 2:30 pm-3:30 pm In addition to normal admission fee: Entrance £1 for all except under 5's
