TRUNCH CONCERTS – Saturday 24th July 2021 4pm & 7.30pm St Botolph’s Church

TRUNCH CONCERTS

THE PANTALOONS THEATRE

Wind in the Willows

Saturday 24th July 2021, 4 pm & 7.30pm,  St. BOTOLPH’S Church, TRUNCH.

Join Mole, Ratty, Toad and Badger on a wild adventure filled with motorcar madness, wicked weasels, exciting escapes and plenty of messing about in boats. The critically-acclaimed Pantaloons Theatre Company put their own anarchic spin Kenneth Grahame’s classic countryside caper. Frantically feral fun for the whole family.

The Pantaloons are a vibrant and anarchic theatre company who bring a vital sense of “play” back to classical performance. The Pantaloons aim to recapture an aspect of Shakespeare’s comedies which the modern naturalistic theatre has lost: the riotous energy of the clown. 

“Witty, energetic and accessible” – The Guardian 

The performances will take  place in  St. Botolph’s Church in Trunch.
The audience will be seated with social distancing of 2 meters. Face Masks must be worn all the time.
The number of places is limited. Pre-booking only. Tickets – £15.
Tickets are available by phone 01692 402 624 or from Trunch Corner Stores  (t.01263 722072).
All proceeds will be donated to Trunch and Swafield Church restoration projects.

SHOP LOCAL DURING SEPTEMBER

Trunch Parish Council is encouraging each household to spend at least £5 a week in our Corner Stores, the Crown pub, social club, local trades and the many other services during September to show support for those who admirably supported the residents of the village through the pandemic.
