A performance of Romeo and Juliet, music, morris dancing and poetry renditions are just some of the highlights of Friday’s Langdyke 20th anniversary celebrations at Torpel Manor Field.
The Lamphouse Theatre Suitcase Shakespeare presentation of Romeo and Juliet is likely to be one of the key highlights of the evening.
The event – the first of two over the weekend- is between 6pm and 9pm on the Torpel site at the edge of Helpston.
The plan is to enjoy a summer’s evening on the site of Roger de Torpel’s Norman manor house with music, drama, poetry and Morris dancing. Bring a picnic and something to sit on. We will be providing some drinks in return for donations – beer, wine and soft drinks.
The programme for the evening in the paddock area around the Cabin is subject to change, but will run something like this:
6pm Opening of event
6-9pm Refreshments and bring your own picnic
6-9pm Langdyke exhibition
6-8pm Arts workshop (members only) in the cabin
6-630pm Music with Dave Maylor
630-7pm Morris Dancing
