Dear Elstow Team of Churches,
Thank you to all those off you who came and supported our May Festival last Saturday. The weather was glorious, the crowds were numerous and everybody seemed to enjoy themselves.  So far we have banked £2,363.50
This coming Monday we have our long anticipated site meeting for the Hillersden Hall, with architects, archeologists, structural engineers and appointed contractor. After which we will know when the diggers and piling machines will arrive.  All very exciting.
Also exciting is a line up of outdoor theatre here in the Abbey cloisters.
Friday 3rd June we welcome once again the Three Inch Fools and their unique presentation of Shakespeare’s’ Twelfth Night’.  Five actors present an inventive take on this rip-roaring comedy that audiences of all ages will enjoy. Expect an evening of mischief and hilarity, fast-paced drama, and much music-making along the way.  Tickets are now available to buy online at: http://www.threeinchfools.com/upcomingperformances
Wednesday July 6th sees the return of the Castle Theatre Company. This year they are bringing us Shakespeare’s ‘A Comedy of Errors’. For over three decades, Castle Theatre Company has taken its annual summer Shakespeare tour around the south of England and the USA, performing classic comedies on the lawns of stately homes, gardens and abbeys. Renowned for its high standard of performance, Castle Theatre Company promises fantastic entertainment for audiences of all ages. Bring a picnic and enjoy an evening of riotous Shakespearean fun! Order you tickets at info@elstow-abbey.org.uk
Finally last year welcomed the Quantum Theatre for the first time with their production of  ‘Peter Rabbit and Friends’.  We were so impressed that we’ve persuaded them to return again. This time with a new production of ’The Reluctant Dragon’ on Monday 29th August at 5.00pm. Tickets are now available at  https://www.quantumtheatre.co.uk/event-details/elstow-abbey-7
