  • Open Air Shakespeare by Illyria: A Midsummer Night’s Dream

    Open Air Shakespeare by Illyria: A Midsummer Night’s Dream

    Hutton-in-the-Forest is the perfect magical location for A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the nation’s favourite Shakespeare play.  Performed by Illyria, the open-air theatre company, this inimitable company reprises the show they performed in their very first year. Five couples – three human, one fairy, and one mythical – find their relationships sorely tested, intimately probed and indecently exposed when a troupe of amateur theatricals bumble into the forest to rehearse a play.  Add to this a heady brew of confusion, magic and mischief, and you have the most perfectly frothy comedy for a moonlit summer evening.  Illyria has won 4 international awards and attracted numerous "5-star" and "Critics' Choice" reviews for the lively clarity of its performances of Shakespeare's comedies.   It promises to be a fantastic evening’s entertainment in a most beautiful and romantic location; Hutton-in-the-Forest.  Bring a picnic and enjoy the magnificent gardens.  This year's performance in aid of Eden Valley Hospice and St James Church is once again generously sponsored by Bond Dickinson and Armstrong Watson. Running time (approx): 2hr 20mins (including 20 minute interval).  Suitable for: all ages 5+.  Tickets are available from Penrith, Carlisle and Keswick Tourist Information Centres, online from www.illyria.uk.com and on the Gate.  Tickets £10, under 25s £5.

  • Warcop Rushbearing

    On St Peters Day, the 29th June each year (unless a Sunday and then it takes place on Saturday) is the traditional Warcop Rushbearing festival when a local band leads a procession of girls wearing floral crowns, boys carrying rush crosses, and adults, from the reading room through the village to the Church.  Rush-strewing festivals were once common in churches countrywide to replace the floor rushes with clean new ones for the summer – few survive and Warcop is one of the places which still has a Rushbearing ceremony.   The procession starts at 2pm and reaches the church by around 3.15pm for a special rushbearing service.  Refreshments are at Warcop Hall en route and childrens sports follow later in the afternoon.
