Tickets will be on sale towards the end of this month from Burway Books and John Thomas in Church Stretton at £7 for the Thursday night performance and £8 for Friday and Saturday. Prices include coffee or tea. A licensed bar and other refreshments will also be available.


The DP’s mummers’ play, How the Market Came to Strettondale written by Peter Thorpe for the Stretton 1214 Medieval Festival, was performed at the medieval fair on June 21st and 22nd.
