Canterbury Tales made modern by Phil Woods

 

 

 

We recreated a medieval hall for this production, so ‘pilgrims’ could enjoy their vittles and entertainment before the next stage of their journey.

 

 

 

Five of the Tales were performed each night – ‘Wife of Bath’s Tale; ‘Nun’s Priest’s Tale’ (juniors); ‘Cook’s Tale’; ‘Pardoner’s Tale’; ‘Reeve’s Tale’. Food was served in the interval and drinks were available throughout the night, at the bar. There was a magician and juggler to entertain you before and during the night and music and singing to warm the cockles of your heart.
