Toilets are provided (trailer style) by the church with car parking in a field near the church.

Tickets are priced at £45 with all profits going to the Churches Conservation Trust.

"it’s also no wonder that the cast and crew seemed so full of pride at their humble creation; it really was quite gorgeous and a giggle to behold."

Venue Information

Venue Description:
St Mary’s is a fine Grade 1 redundant church in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust. The nave and chancel date from the 14th century and there is a fine double hammerbeam roof. The 15th century tower has beautiful flint and stone panelling. All profits of this show go to the Churches Conservation Trust which is much needed as there has recently been a theft of lead from the side chapel for the second time in four years.
