A School for Scandal

by Richard Brinsley Sheridan  Directed by Alan Morris

Richard Brinsley Sheridan's classic comedy sparkles with wit, verbal brilliance and an intricate plot exposing the lives and loves of fashionable London society.

Sir Peter Teazle's simple country bride becomes leader of a group of scandalmongers who tear their friends' reputations to shreds. Can anyone escape the outrageous gossip of, amongst others, the aptly named Benjamin Backbite, Lady Sneerwell, Mrs Candour and Snake?

This wonderfully funny play is one of the most engaging high comedies in the English language.

TICKETS ON SALE TO THE PUBLIC FROM 15th April 2019 Adults £12.00 Concessions £11.00.

This year we have REEF headlining the Domer Stage! with over 130 bands playing over the weekend!

Our Friday night is a little different and we encourage that you come along in your ‘Posh Wears & Wellies’ to dance the night away and start the weekend off in fine style! It’s great fun so join us if you fancy but it’s by no means compulsory – just don’t be surprised it you see people in their wellies and fineries!

We look forward to seeing you on June 7th/8th/9th this year and helping celebrate 10 years of School in a Bag!

Race for Life 5K

Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life is a series of events raising money for research into all 200 types of cancer. Thousands of people uniting with one purpose. To come together. To raise money. To beat cancer. Cancer Research wants to encourage everyone to help fight the cause.

Your support, through events like Race for Life, is what helps us continue our ground-breaking work to see more people surviving cancer. Taking part because you, or a loved one, have been touched by cancer? If so, please join us and help to raise money for life saving research. Every penny helps us beat cancer, but the more you raise the more we can do!

A Race for Life 5k takes about an hour to complete, and the 10k most people taking part will finish within two hours, but remember - Race for Life events are non-competitive, so you can take as long as you like.

This is no ordinary event. People of all ages, abilities and backgrounds take part. There’s absolutely no pressure to finish in a certain time. A Race for Life is about uniting in the fight against cancer - no matter what your pace.

One of the best ways to have fun and raise money for Race for Life is to get together as a group. If you'd like to take part with a group of friends and family then we have all the information you need.

For more information and sign up avenues please visit the website.
